”We wish to extend our congratulations to the winners of last weekend’s PGA, LPGA, PGA Tour Champions and JGTO tournaments.  Both the Tour AD and YS NanoReloaded models of graphite shafts are designed to help optimize golfers games by providing a tour level of Accuracy and Distance that is expected of a premium graphite golf shaft”, stated Bill McPherson, Vice President of Sales, Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts, Inc.

These recent wins on the world professional golf tours brings the count to 17 global professional tour wins this season for a Graphite Design Tour AD DI shaft model and a total of 27 global professional tour wins.


The Tour AD DI model is the first Graphite Design shaft design that was integrated with Toray Company’s original NANOALLOY material technology in the tip section of the shaft.  This material technology has now come to be known as “DI Technology”.  This unique material technology promotes additionally shaft stability without the loss of feel and allows the player to create greater club head speed and thus greater ball speed while still providing exceptional feel and control.

The Tour AD DI also utilizes premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials to provide the best performing shaft available. The softer mid-section bend profile of the Tour AD DI allows the player to load the shaft properly, yet it maintains a firm enough tip section through IMPACT promoting a high launch and low spin ball flight condition. The result, the Tour AD DI delivers players to the next level in shaft performance and will create a “DEEP IMPACT” on your game!
