Graphite Design Tour AD BB (Blue Bullet) Golf Shaft Review
I. Who is the Graphite Design Tour AD BB Golf Shaft For:
This golf shaft is for the player who is seeking a premium quality low-launching low-spin shaft with the ultra smooth “glassy” feel that has become uniquely intertwined with Graphite Design’s Tour AD brand. This golf shaft fits into the hands of players who have slightly faster tempos, late releases, moderate swing speeds, desire a lower launching bend profile, ultra low spin rates, want to be able to control their drives in windy conditions, and get fantastic roll out! This shaft has fit phenomenally into many PGA Tour, NCAA, and competitive high-school golfers, and those who know and love the signature feel of a Graphite Design golf shaft!
II. What Do I Need to Know About the Graphite Design Tour AD BB Golf Shaft:
The BB was first introduced in 2012 and has stood the test of time as a true classic, unaltered in its steadfast design and composition! Made to help lower player’s launch angles and reduce spin rates, the Graphite Design Tour AD BB golf shaft is made of premium 50-ton modulus graphite from the Toray Company’s 1st generation Nanoalloy material recipe that has became the renown Deep Impact (DI) Technology material and has been implemented ever since! Strategically placed in the shaft and tip section, the proprietary 50-ton Nanoalloy graphite material has given the Graphite Design Tour AD DI family its unique and signature feel! The bend profile is one where players will feel the shaft flex closer to the handle, promoting a lower launch angle great for windy conditions, and the stiff tip section will help promote an ultra low ball spin effect for straighter drives, amazing feedback, stability on off-centered shots, and extra roll out on the fairway!
What sets this shaft apart from others is that it falls into the low-launch low spin classification, but unlike many other shafts in this category, the Blue Bullet (BB) maintains the ultra smooth and “non-harsh” feel that is unique to the Graphite Design Tour AD brand, and has one of the most stable low-spinning tip sections of many premium level golf shaft manufacturers.
Player Profile: Tempo: slightly accelerated, Transition: more aggressive, Release: mid to late, Swing Speed: moderate, Trajectory: low, Spin: low.
