    LA Golf Bryson Proto Shaft

    Looking forward to getting mine in hand in the coming days... Reserving this post for some pics when it arrives.











    The paint scheme is going to look amazing in the F9 avalanche. Looking forward to getting it tipped and gripped and out to the range. Should have some early intel in the next few days. Thanks to THP and LAGP for the opportunity!

      I received the TPOC 75-TX shaft from LAGP and here is a quick photo of the shaft:

      TPOC.jpeg

      John Oldenburg (a/k/a Oly within the golf industry) describes this shaft as: "a parallel butt profile, low launch/low-mid spin offering (think Tensei and Hzrdus), that has been testing very very well. A bit crisper feeling in the hands with outstanding control and launch. Parallel Butt Proto (offered in 75-X, 75-S, 65-S, 65-X) – mid/low launch, low spin, crisp/solid feel"

      This shaft is created to compete with the MCA Tensei Pro Series line of shafts - lots of tour pros are gaming one of these - and since I have one of these in my TaylorMade M5, Oly asked me to do a direct comparison. I will be updating this thread with thoughts, technical info, who is gaming it on tour, and whatever else I can share. I will also be placing it head-to-head with the Tensei in the M5. Much more to come!

        Some details from John on the shaft I received today:

        Our player/partner/owner, Bryson DeChambeau, has been using a new shaft he helped design in his driver, 3 and 5 wood since shortly after the Masters. Still tweaking things a bit for him, but should have it dialed very soon. His shaft is a low launch, low spin profile, specifically designed for stability and shot repeatability. Very stout in the mid-section and tip, and a bit softer in the hands to provide some feel.A note for those of you trying the Bryson models. This shaft does not need to be tip trimmed for the X-flex player. If you normally tip, trim, I would suggest you start out with this one straight in. Bryson plays the shaft with no tip trim. If you’re an animal, and somehow this shaft straight in isn’t enough, I’ll be glad to send you another one try out with a bit of tip trim. The Bryson shaft is labeled 3VD1. It’s just the code I used while working with Bryson.

          tip installed on the TPOC shaft. Adding the grip later today.

          Here is a picture of the butt end of the TPOC and the OLYSS (which is being updated in another thread). The butt end of the OLYSS, a constant taper design, is quite a bit larger than the TPOC, which is a parallel butt design. Just found that interesting.

                I always like the shafts I played from the previous iteration of LA Golf Shafts. I am sure these will also be fantastic.

                    Just a note on this. Very different company down to who is designing the shafts being completely different than what was at Matrix

                      That is a great looking shaft. If it is designed to go toe to toe with the Tensei line, I am really interested in your guys' results. Is it aimed at one of the specific profiles (Blue, White, Orange)? Could have missed that part if it was mentioned.

                        I have some emails into Oly to see what this shaft most compares to and to see who on tour might be playing it.

                        FWIW, I will putting it up against the Orange.

                              Adapter will be here tomorrow- hope to be able to get it installed and ready for the course and range this weekend. True LM numbers will have to wait until after vacation, but should be able to get some info with my G80 soon.
