I just wanted to pass along some information regarding some great new offerings from Graphite Design. I have also included a helpful shaft fitting guide that Graphite Design utilizes
The new Tour AD GP, like its predecessors, utilizes premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials in order to deliver the best feeling and performing shaft available to golfers. Designed with a very stiff tip and stiffer mid to butt section to promote a MID-launch condition and LOW spin, the new Tour AD GP also utilizes the latest in graphite material from Toray Industries, Inc., TORAYCA ® T1100G carbon-fiber pre-preg with NANOALLOY ® technology in the tip section of the shaft for additional shaft stability, exceptional feel and precise ball control. The new Tour AD GP model will carry a MSRP of $500.00 and a MAP of $380.00.
This one is turning heads and for those who love the higher launching characteristics of the Tour AD DI (the orange one) you will absolutely love this one as its far more stable with even LOWER spin!
New for 2015, Graphite Design introduces the newest addition to the Tour AD premium line of golf shafts, the Tour AD MJ.

2016 Tour AD Fitting Guide
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.
