    Duf said there are 4 of these, he had all four but gave one to another player. He said these are the 1st graphite iron shafts that he was able to launch higher but keep the spin down, more in line with a steel shaft. He worked with LAGP over a phone call and they built these.

    Is he only using these in long irons?

    As of now yes, he said there are only 4 in existence.

    Is he working to get a full set made or just to replace long iron shafts?

    I could totally see dufner being a member but my guess is he would be on here trolling or messing with all of us just for fun.

    Personally, the there's only one thing I am looking forward to with graphite iron shafts. Tips that don't bend. KBS, I'm looking at you...

    Sure, graphite shafts aren't as hard on the joints. But I am not looking forward to reshafting sets of wedges and irons. Ugh, what a pain. And the price will never be as low as steel.

    I’d be surprised if there weren’t at least 20-30 guys on tour who lurk at least occasionally. There’s so much info in these forums they’d be dumb not to at least look.

    In reading the quote, the description of the goal of this shaft, it sounds a lot like what the characteristics of a KBS Tour S+ (balance point, 125g, softer tip, similar to S400, etc). Anyone have any insight on how they differ?
