Review: Aldila Tour Blue and Green Shafts
I started with the Blue, which is billed a the higher launching mid spin shaft. I immediately could feel the difference, this shaft felt better than the stock shaft. Much smoother and easier to load. It was a stiff flex like I normally play, but just felt really good. On the tee box I found this shaft hit higher than the stock shaft, but spin was still about the same. While I didn’t have an accuracy problem with the stock shaft, the Blue was just a little tighter yet. I don’t think I hit any more fairways than before, but was less off line. What I did pick up was some height. My launch angle went up, which also translated to a couple more yards of carry. This is the biggest benefit of the Blue. High Launch with moderate spin and excellent feel. With so much discussion about the “Loft Up” with low spin of the SLDR, this might be a really good fit for many golfers looking for “tour” feel and accuracy with solid numbers to back it up.
While we all know that shaft looks don’t impact their performance, but yet we are inclined to install a shaft we like the looks of and these are lookers. The matte color near the grip which blends into a matte black/grey color is very appealing; not too bold, not too subtle. They look almost like stock shafts in the SLDR.
Aldila offers two tour shafts to fit your game. As you can see from the numbers they are different and depending on your needs, one might fit you better than the other. For me the Tour Green is going to be my gamer in the SLDR. I am really liking the feel, control and confidence it offers. Hitting fairways with good distance is really beneficial for scoring. Aldila produced tour quality shafts that will benefit the amateur as well.
