The new Miyazaki looks to be a very interesting shaft. Coming in December 2009′, this shaft promises to be, conceptually, a very promising shaft indeed. The shaft sports a proprietary International Flex Code fitting system that is supposed to dial in your shaft specs more clearly for a better fitting. Of all golf shafts coming out, this one is definitely one to put on the watch list.
SRI Sports, the Japan-based parent compay of Cleveland Golf and Srixon Golf, is introducing the Miyazaki brand of golf shafts. SRI Sports’ shaft designs and technologies have previously only been offered within Asia, but the launch of the Miyazaki shafts brand expands availability into North America beginning Dec. 1.
Each Miyazaki shaft, according to SRI, is designed with a proprietary International Flex Code fitting system that replaces the traditional specifications of frequency, kick point, and torque to give professional fitters and golfers alike a more detailed insight into the specifics of their current shaft. SRI says Miyazaki shafts utilize the highest grade carbon-fiber materials available to produce innovative bending and torsional profiles geared toward specific player types. Each shaft, according to SRI, is precisely constructed to some of the industry’s tightest tolerances to ensure consistent delivery characteristics on each shot.
Miyazaki shafts were introduced on the PGA Tour this past May. Jerry Kelly won the Zurich Classic and John Rollins won the Reno-Tahoe Open with the shafts.
The Miyazaki series golf shafts are currently offered in up to three weight options in three unique flex profiles that are available in R, S and X flex designs. Low-trajectory Black, mid-trajectory Blue, and high-trajectory Silver profiles are available in each flex with a standard 0.335” tip diameter.
