Many of you are familiar with the Synergy Tour shafts we have had. Those being the Synergy Black and Synergy Green Prototypes that have been so wildly popular here and were made for the PGA Tour. You also may be aware that these products contain Graphene. Below are some facts and links to information about graphene, as well as the original Synergy Black thread for any of you who are not caught up on the data and real world results from players about this technology and what it allows a shaft to do in terms of the spin/launch/feel correlation.



Ok, here is the finished Tour Proto version of Aldila's new Tour Only SYNERGY shaft. Below you will see Trackman data against the two lowest spin shafts that we have tested, that didn't hit 6 feet off the ground or feel like a telephone pole. As you can see, the Synergy is launching the same or higher, with incredibly low spin. How is it doing this? I don't exactly know, but it has to be the inclusion of graphene in the material construction. As it is a true Tour Proto, I don't have all the finite details on exactly how or where, but I can tell you it's the first graphite shaft using graphene and we have the data to prove the results. Below I have included a couple articles on graphene for the techies out there. Basically it's the strongest fiber ever tested and over 200 times stronger than steel.



Graphene info:



[url="http://www.graphene.manchester.ac.uk/explore/what-can-graphene-do/"]http://www.graphene....an-graphene-do/[/url]



[url="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphene"]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphene[/url]



Synergy Black test and consumer thread:



[url="http://www.golfwrx.c..."]http://www.golfwrx.c...[/url] synergy black





Now that you are up to speed on the technology and Synergy Tour series, it's time to introduce you all to the Aldila Tour Series for 2019. These shafts are just hitting Tour this week, and will not be available in standard retail capacity until around March or April of 2019. However, we at GGE, have them available NOW in 65, 75 and 85TX flexes. Some are screened 60/70 some 65/75. Same shaft in everyway way.



What Aldila has done is taken all the technology and all the of the information they have received through Tour and independent testing and feedback, and both advanced and melded that technology into the 2019 Aldila Tour line. So basically all of you who have wanted Synergy Black or Green and can no longer get it, this is your solution. Aldila has transferred over everything they learned from the Synergy graphene technology, tweaked and advanced that technology, and put it entirely into this line.



65, 75, 85 TX flex Green

65, 75, 85 TX flex Blue

85, 95, 105 TX flex Black Hybrid



Price - $399

Hybrid Price - $180

    Price point choice is so intriguing on “high end” shafts.



    I just can’t imagine there are enough people out there willing to spend so much on a shaft to justify a $400 price point.

    Yes it is 103 grams, but this particular profile is more Tensei pro blue than white.

    It's the evolution of the graphene tech. There are some differences as well as similarities. I'll post all that on Monday with the data.

    It's not uncommon for us to sell a few hundred pieces of fresh new products. I have no idea what any other vendor does, but last calendar year we sold over 1500 individual shafts. I'd assume places like Club Champion do exponentially more than we do. Everyone has a different idea of what is economically viable to them. Some people drive Kia cars some drive Mercedes. Some guys play $3000 putters, some play $50 putters. It simply depends on the individual and if the technology is something they place value on. Neither is wrong or right and I would never advocate for someone to spend out of their means on anything.

    From what I understand these won't even be available after market retail until well into 2019. I'd doubt you'd see them as an upgrade option in anything for a good year.

    Not that I know of. These are Tour protos, which is normally where you would find the 90's, but at this point there are none in either color. That said, we do have 90TX Pro Orange in stock if that may interest you.

    I have the Synergy Black Prototype, and I have been very impressed with it. I was little hesitant to get it, as my swing speed is only around 105 mph, but I found it very playable. In fact, it has alittle looser feel than I was expecting, given that it is a TX flex. I am considering the Tour Blue for my 3 wood.

    The new ATX are a little more firm than original synergy black, but just a touch. They both retain the type of smoothness that synergy black is known for.

    Thanks JT. I will contact you in a few months when the weather changes. I have to decide on a 3 wood first. From what I am reading, it seems like the Synergy Black and the Tour ATX Green are similar enough that there isn't much of a reason for me to replace the Synergy Black.

    Agreed, unless you simply want something slightly more firm and linear feeling. At 105 I think Synergy Black may ultimately be better for you.

    Every player has a different AOA and way of delivering the club. These are, after all, humans and not the iron byron. The important thing to pay attention to is the different data between shafts, not the actual numbers against another player.

    It has definitely been the #1 selling shaft of the last 2 months for us. It's exponentially better than the previous version, and I saw Rahm made the switch already.
