    Great review James, as always enjoyable and easy to follow along with, even for someone who’s not super into shaft tech (IE me)

    The price point is certainly no joke, but it seems in your case that the results speak for themselves. It’s a good looking shaft for sure, combined with the results, it seems like something anyone looking to upgrade should keep in their mind.

    I went through a TPT shaft fitting during my lesson at Jon Sinclair golf in Euless, TX, yesterday. I brought all three of my drivers with me to go against the G400/TPT combos. It didn’t take long to see that the TOT beat-out all three drivers I have by 10 yards. Dispersion reduced, ball speed increased, and carry was much better. Jon sent me home with the G400 set at 8*, and the TPT shaft so I can try it for awhile. I’m excited to get this on the course for sure!!!
    Interestingly, Jon mentioned he chose a higher torque shaft compared to what I play because he didn’t want the face to close, we’re trying to eliminate my “hook” miss. I’ve never heard of doing that before, so it really stuck with me. My swing changes are still in flux, but it’s going to be fun to try this driver for a bit! The shaft had a great feel, almost “loose”, but it was extremely stable! Weird. Great feeling!!!

    James I enjoyed this one. Going from the paper specs, it's probably not the one I would gravitate towards, but I hope you bring it with you next week. The one, or two, swings that I have taken with one I thought the ball took off like a rocket, so I'd be interested in another swing.

    It'll be there. It's pretty cemented in my bag. We can turn the max down to 9.5 and let you at it.

    On your follow-through, avoid having it rebound against your back at the finish of a swing.

    Once you drive TexPress at an exhilarating 95-105 mph on an almost vacant tollway in the middle of Dallas, you will miss your exit. You're going too fast and not many exits.

    I discussed this with my fitter, and what I saw on video of another golfer is a hard rebound on the back and a shatter. About 10 days ago, mine went down - seems to be its Achilles Heel as to endurance, although the warranty had me in a new shaft in a few days. This shaft is so good that I don't care - I don't get to hit it 270+ several times under real conditions during one round with any other shaft, not with my lack of speed.

    During the last few minutes of my son's lesson, I jumped on Trackman and worked on my follow through. No need to hit the back, although it can happen when tired and accompanied with a lack of athleticism.

    glad to hear the warranty came through for you, but man i don't like hearing these durability issues for a product that by testimonial seems to be damn good

    They've been out for only, what, about 8 months on the market. Prototypes started early last Fall. I'm not concerned about the evolution and their success. Lively, consistent, low spin, great launch and distance - I'm in a G400/Max at 9 degrees and can launch it 14-16 degrees, mid-high with a 90-92 SS.

    i don't doubt the performance. but if i paid that much money for a shaft that has broken what, twice on you in 8 months, it would be a concern. again, awesome that they're doing right by the consumer and replacing the shafts that fail. and i hope they get it figure out because, again, it sounds like they perform beautifully.
