Time for another extensive review, and this is a good one, Grafalloy Prolaunch. This Prolaunch shaft has been the flagship of Grafalloy for several years now and continues to grow in popularity, especially with the recreational player.
The Prolaunch was the first shaft to be developed, designed and tested using the latest in launch monitor technology. There are several models of the Prolaunch including Axis, Blue, Red and Platinum. Today, we will focus on the Prolaunch Blue, the best selling model.
The premise behind the Prolaunch is to provide an optimal launch angle for the player, that being somewhere between 11 and 14 degrees. The Prolaunch Blue is also considered the first ultra-light shaft for larger heads. This shaft is without a doubt one of the favorites amongst recreational players looking for ideal launch conditions to optimize distance.

Actual Player Feedback-
“The Pro Launch delivers as advertised. It has given my drives more carry distance which results in more distance overall”
“I tend to hit the ball low so I installed these shafts to help me increase my trajectory”
“They are incredible and I would highly recommend anyone looking for a high trajectory to give these shafts a try”
This shaft is one of the best around for the recreational player. It’s strength lies it’s innate ability to get the ball launched at the optimal angle for increased distance.
This shaft may not be for the big hitter, looking for a lower, penetrating ball.
Again, this shaft is the cream of the crop if you are looking for a higher launch conditions, which consists of 2500-3500 RPM and 11-14 degrees of launch angle. The ProLaunch is available in 4 weight ranges sure to fit all swing types.The Grafalloy Prolaunch is definitely a shaft worth looking at if you fall into the player profile we’ve described.
I ran across this great shaft fitting tool on shaft fitting sponsored by Grafalloy.
