Graphite Design Tour AD GP
Brand new for the 2016 season, Graphite Design introduces the latest in the Tour AD premium line of golf shafts, the Tour AD GP. Designed and manufactured at the Graphite Design Japan factory headquarters, the new Tour AD GP wood shaft is available in 50g R2, R1 and S flex, 60g SR, S and X flex, 70g S and X flex and 80g S and X flex.
The 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 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.
If you are looking for a super-premium graphite golf shaft for your Driver or Fairway woods, the new Tour AD GP may just be for you and the Greatest Performing shaft you ever hit.
I demo’ed about 10 different driver shafts from shaftshack.com, and this was my absolute favorite. The others I tried included the Graphite Design m9003, Diamana White Board, HZRDUS T1100 and Smoke Green, Aldila Rogue MSI 130, Fujikura Ventus Black, and others. The AD GP was the smoothest and most balanced while still feeling firm at address, stable throughout the swing, and stout at impact. I could feel it load in transition, meaning it did not feel too boardy or overly stiff, which meant I didn’t feel like I needed to kill it to get it to work. I could also feel the shaft kick or release into impact without the tip feeling soft or whippy or inconsistent. The kick at impact felt like it developed over the course of the swing, not all at the last second. All of this led to the most consistent center contact on the face of any of the shafts tested. The resulting ball flight was perfectly straight, flat, and hot. The landing angle was perfect and the ball seemed to want to chase once in the ground. It also has the advantage of being the most beautiful of all shafts. Love the color and graphics. It just inspires confidence and smooth swings that repeat the same ideal contact and ball flight over and over. I can’t say enough good things about it! Devon on 21st Oct 2020
I'm glad that Shaftshack came up with the shaft demo idea! Actually being able to take several shafts out on the course and play rounds with them for a week is way more beneficial to me than a launch monitor fitting! Tried 5 different shafts and ended up going with the GD tour ad GP, looking at specs of this shaft I really didn't even consider that it would work! I was really surprised when I started hitting my driver straight most of the time and when I did miss it was barely offline! Couldn't be more satisfied! Golf4fun on 13th Aug 2016
