Highest Balance Point Graphite Design Shaft?


Recommended Posts

Shaftoids, looking for the closest thing to counterbalanced in the GD Tour AD line. I’ve gotten along great with the IZ in Callaway drivers in the past but I’m looking for something for the 425LST.

I think the IZ is an awesome shaft as I have tested it with a lot of other driver shafts last year.  The closest thing to it that I believe is counterbalanced would be the VR.  Launch would be about the same and very similar spin numbers.  If you can, try and demo it.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

I think the VR is their most counterbalanced shaft, but I think balance point is only slightly higher than IZ.

In the 60 gram range in S flex, the two highest balance points in the GD line are AD VR and IZ at 24.12. The lowest is AD XC at 23.75. Splitting hairs trying to find the highest balance point in the Tour AD lineup. None in the 60 gram range would be considered "counterbalanced" either. If you like a "blue board"/Tour AD profile and want a more a more counterbalanced design I would look at the Project X Smoke Yellow or RDX Blue.
