Graphite Design Tour AD MT Driver Shaft with Tip & Grip



The Tour AD MT is designed to provide a player with Maximum energy Transfer and superior Accuracy and Distance.  Designed and manufactured exclusively at the Graphite Design factory headquarters in Japan, the Tour AD MT is available in 50g R2(Lite), R1(Regular) and S flex, 60g SR(Stiff Regular), S and X flex, 70g S and X flex and 80g S and X flex.

The Tour AD MT design is based on the very popular Tour AD DI model and utilizes premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber and the Toray Company’s 3rd generation of Nano-alloy material technology known as “DI Technology” in the tip section of the shaft. The Tour AD MT features a stiffer mid-section and slightly softer tip than the Tour AD DI. This design feature will produce optimal launch and spin characteristics in today’s modern low spin drivers.

The Graphite Design Tour AD MT released in 2014. It is another variation of the Tour AD profiles.  The Tour AD MT has the familiar Graphite Design look. The profile follows the same basic design, stiff butt, rapidly losing stiffness toward the tip, and then sharply gaining stiffness into the tip. The difference in the Tour AD models is the mid section. Starting with the 2011 Tour AD DJ, a mid shaft stiffness bump was added. The placement and degree of this bump sets the launch propensity of the shaft.

In the Tour AD BB, the ‘bump’ is subtle and in the low mid region of the shaft. In the Tour AD GT, it moved back and was more pronounced. The mid section ‘bump’ in the Tour AD MT falls in about the same region as the Tour AD GT, it is followed by a rapid loss of stiffness to 16″ then the shaft quickly gains stiffness toward the tip.

What does that all mean to the golfer. This is a highly successful design that is in use by a number of marquee players.  I see a mid launch, mid spin design that is a good mate for the low launch heads and balls we will see in the 2014 models.
