New Golf Shaft Design- Rib Construction w/ Twist Lock System-Huh?

So I came across a rather unique shaft designer who has developed a very intriguing concept/design. A shaft that is basically built using moderate quality composite yet has an internal rib structure that significantly reduces  the deviations normally associated with twisting and drooping. Each shaft is built with 8 of these interior ribs which intersect and “lock” when the shaft begins to twist which, according  to the designer, allows for a exceptionally quick recovery rate which would get the head back to square at impact. The end result would be a moderately priced shaft that performs like the much more expensive premium shafts. I like the bend profile but will do my own testing once they arrive – I will keep everyone posted!

About Andrew Hodson

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.
