This company Veylix was started by former staff at Matrix and is about to go public.

40T Japanese carbon from Mitsubishi or Toray. full length in most of the shafts.

How is this brand any different? well their president told me that they are designing shafts with a profile that tour players would request more often yet maintaining usability for most who are not at that tour level.

It's a USDM brand with 80% of it's materials coming from Japan.

Thoughts?

Agreed the graphics are pretty good.

Not sure what the numbers mean or their unit of measure, beyond Torque, CPM, length and weight.

Seems to be high torque stiffer playing shafts. Surprised by the lack of mid 70s weight class, given the shafts in the offering.

Yeah I noticed that too. Seems strange, as that is a lot of peoples 3w/5w shaft weight.

I like the look of the 688 'X' flex. Torque and weight very close to my fav Kai'li. Might play totally different of course.

Chris - any idea of pricing?

Appearance is great. Interested to know what price point these are at. If the cost is in line then might be worth a try!

RIDuffer thanks for the link. Hard to believe the cost is as low as they are offering. If the shaft is as good as they say, this might be a great way to go.

That is the Alpina, not sure if they are making a similar deal on the Rome shaft. I believe the Rome runs ~$450 retail… There are a couple of threads about it at GolfWrx...

I'm a relative newby to JDM, but a long-time member. There is a post on another site about this shaft that was started yesterday. Price point was quoted at $450 range for the Rome model and $170 range for the Alpina model. The quote from Bronson is "40 ton graphite 100%. ok. which is, hasn't been done, in this market this way before." I though JDM companies like Crazy have had and surpassed this technology for a while?

Funny, I was going to post a link from golfwrx about these new shafts. I was reading some Robo guy's review of the shafts on there yesterday and he absolutely loves them. Granted, he's friend with the guy who started the company. Love the look of them though!

Hi Junkfry, 40t is not a technology, it is simply the grading of the carbon based on its tensile strength. The higher the number the denser the weaves and the more higher grade glass particles vs rubber particles in lower grade shafts. Crazy uses 40t 46t 50t and 80t full length in their shafts.
