    At the HandCrafted event, I asked both Don and Chad what PX/TT shaft I should consider if I really like KBS Tour V. Neither one of them hesitated and they both said the same thing - wait until Memphis. They didn't really elaborating, but they were definitely excited for what was coming. I'm guessing these are what they had in mind.

    The talk of these being (relatively) high weight, high launch is intriguing to me. I'm not a high spin player, but from a contact standpoint, I'm always fit into a ~120g shaft. This design really interests me, as something like PX, and even LZ is meant to be more on the mid/mid-low side.

    I've been playing DGS300's since sophomore year of HS (which was decades ago) purely out of habit, inertia, and frankly cheapness. Really interested in learning more as I'm sure there's a better fit out there for me.

    True Temper Elevate Shafts

    I've seen these post on social media after being announced by True Temper Golf last week at FedEx/St Jude's Classic but this is the first time i've seen info into the specs posted. I can't wait to see them in person when launched at retail.

    Press release courtesy Jonathan Wall/PGA Tour;

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The introduction of solid-core construction golf balls has been a massive benefit for players on the PGA TOUR — particularly when it comes to the driver where low spin qualities equate to more distance off the tee.

    But decreasing spin with the driver can sometimes come at a cost, especially in the iron department for those players who don't fall in the high swing speed category.

    "We've seen a lot of guys, as they are going to low-spin golf balls to reduce the spin with the driver, they are struggling with the launch on their irons," said Don Brown, Project X's director of innovation. "We noticed there was a small hole in our lineup where we could help a player get the ball in the air."

    The solution is True Temper's Elevate shaft. The new part comes in at 121 grams, roughly nine grams lighter than the popular Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 part.

    Going lighter can help boost swing speed, however, True Temper wanted to fix launch at the same time. Engineers were able to add an additional two degrees of launch via a thinner .370-inch diameter section just below the last step — Dynamic Gold is .395 inches — that activates the tip section.

    "During testing, the TOUR guys with the lower clubhead speeds are seeing the benefits of what this shaft can do," said True Temper Tour rep Paul Loegering. "Getting the apex and landing angle optimized are critical to ensuring the ball isn't spinning too much but is still stopping on the green."

    Loegering mentioned that while players are going to get more height with Elevate, it's designed to not balloon on shots that need to be flighted through the wind.

    "If a player is challenged getting that height, he's going to get more elevation but not too much spin," Loegering said. "It keeps things in a good sweet spot so you can still flight the ball if necessary and not have to worry about it spinning out of control."


    Another new addition is a Vibration Suppression System (VSS) housed inside the shaft that helps reduce unwanted vibrations at impact. Similar to the company's Sensicore insert, it's roughly 75 percent lighter than its predecessor.

    "The VSS is a benefit for the pro and the amateur," Brown said. "It was built for Elevate but can be applied to other products we're working on at the moment."

    True Temper Tour reps confirmed a 95-gram part is also in the works. For now, the shaft is available at 121 grams in two flexes (S and X) on TOUR.

    Oh man, these sound like they may be my Goldielocks sticks. Can’t wait to give them a test drive.

    Edit: just noticed that these seem to be in S and X flex, which may limit their application to my “methodical” swing speed.

    These sound really intriguing. Tour players that swing slower are still a little faster than me. And what they are calling light at 121 is right where I like to be. Light to me is more like 90.

    The description almost reminds me of my driver shaft, built similar to a heavy low launch shaft with a little help in the tip section.

    The flighting issue was one of my questions with these since I tend tend to play in the wind fairly often. Sounds like that shouldn't be an issue though.

    when you come back to town in January, i'm sure DB would let you tinker somehow with these. Or Mr. Chad Hall would.

    I think this profile is going to fit a TON of golfers. Getting the ball up in a hurry and landing like a pancake makes scoring so easy.
