    ACCRA Shafts

    Ok. So I went for a fitting last Friday and was fitted for an AC by ACCRA shaft (https://www.accragolf.com/golf-shafts/ac-accra/). I trust my fitter so I'm fairly confident that it will be a good fit. However I'd never heard of them before. Anybody have any experience with ACCRA? Seems like a fairly affordable alternative to some of the pricier options. I'll be sure to write up my experience but wanted to see if anyone else out there had gamed anything made by them before. Thanks!

    I'm not too familar with that model but I have read about this brand on the club builders and long drive forums who would put a Geek, Bang, or SMT driver head with it. Its not a "sexy" brand but does perdorm well. From what I've read. Hopefully someone who has tried this brand can provide more input.

    I have heard of Accra before, they are a well respected shaft brand. Luke Donald plays an Accra in his FW and many other pros play Accra. I have never hit one before but if I was "fit" into one I would be pretty excited.

    I play these in my hybrids and they're awesome for me. I wasn't fit for them, but chose the profile I felt would give me what I wanted and they're performing just as advertised. Great feel and the ball just flies.

    Wanted to check into this thread and let you guys know that so far the shaft has worked out great. It's taken a bit of getting used to but I feel like I'm right on track. Haven't had a single range session other than to warm up prior to a round. 2.5 rounds in and I'm pretty confident in it. Once I got back to committing to a faster swing, I was used to laying off a bit, everything has started coming together. At this point I'd say I'm very pleased.

    i gamed a cs1 in driver for a few months. very expensive, solid if a little dead feeling. now they're very affordable, so i guess they were a miss with people as they were with me.

    Hello - Has anyone tried the new FX series? Looking at the 200 mid launch range.
    I have the 100 series in a fw and was wondering on the 200 for a driver.
    Thank you

    Saw that on IG and thought they look great. Now pair it up with the wood grain F7 and we have something special.

    I have been playing the i90 and i100 tour for quite a while and love these shafts, very smooth feeling and great control. Not the cheapest out there but a great option if you can try them.

    So you get me to try the TPT then switch to Accra....man you are tough to keep up with

    I did love them in my Honma irons, one of those regretful changes. Should have keep those shafts and they were PURED...so much better ha, ha.

    Hahaha, no way dude, the TPT is secure in the gamer (G400 Max), but I want to tinker some more with the 585, there's just SOMETHING about that head that had my intrigue.
