Review: TPT Golf Shaft
TPT shafts just launched this spring and have a simple line-up. Low kick or mid kick aimed at 5 swing speed categories, basically 10 shafts. I went with the 15 Mid-kick shaft which is aimed for about a 105 -120 MPH swing speed which I’m on the lower end of that speed category, but I like the stronger launch of the mid-kick. The looks are all similar with a black raw carbon fiber look and lime green and blue graphics. It is a 74 gram shaft which is on the slightly heavier side, but for stronger more aggressive swings, it is a good fit. I found it was excellent for my swing. The smooth feel of this shaft is unique because it doesn’t have a distinguishing kick, but rather loads and unloads with a consistent feel and motion.
Is a $700 shaft really better? Any time the cost of a shaft becomes the issue, it is simply a matter of how you want spend your money. If you invest in a TPT shaft, you can be sure that you are getting the highest quality shaft money can buy and the performance is going to speak for itself against anything else out there. You need to be fit for this shaft and try it out before you just jump in and assume you know which one will work for you. I had the privilege of working with TPT at the Leadbetter Academy in Orlando, FL during their launch event and tested their 4 different shafts that were closest to my numbers on paper to settle on this one. Based on my Flightscope Xi Tour Launch Monitor testing, this is potentially the best shaft I’ve ever hit.

The TPT shaft installed on the new TaylorMade M1 driver is one of the best combos I’ve ever hit. It offers both distance and accuracy. One thing that is hard to convey in the data above is the repetition of such numbers. It’s one thing to get an average, it’s another when the variance of that average is small. The TPT shaft is the most consistent shaft I’ve ever hit, and the results are just as good. They improved the manufacturing process and this improved the results. Yes, it comes at a cost, but at least you are getting the best shaft money can buy.
