The next generation Rifle shaft, one of the more popular golf shafts played on tours worldwide, is now available exclusively through True Temper’s Performance Fitting Center dealers. Steel shafts, especially the Rifle shaft, are preferred in iron sets basically because of their weight consistency and feel.
True Temper says Rifle’s patented design efficiently transfers energy through the shaft providing the most solid feel at impact with proven performance results. Rifle shafts feature a stepless frequency matched design that True Temper says “ensures consistent” flex progression throughout the set. The new Rifle blanks offer improved weight and balance consistency for improved trajectory and improved feel.
“The new Rifle, which is offered in blanks, allows Performance Fitting Center club makers to have the flexibility to customize shafts to both standard Rifle and Rifle Flighted finished shafts at specific frequencies,” said Bill Lange, director of sales-golf products for True Temper Sports. “This provides the golfer with the ultimate fitting experience for individual, unique performance needs.”
Rifle shafts (suggested retail price $50) can be customized to a 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 and 7.0 Rifle or Rifle flighted flex and ranges in weight from 130 grams (4.0 flex) to 146 grams (7.0 flex).
