The Waccine Compo shaft company is another premium brand in Japan that specializes in high modulus shaft. Like many other high modulus shaft companies, it has been a very popular choice for long drive competitors for the consistent feedback and stability. The GR line of shafts is broken up into 4 main categories, each with different characteristics. It ranges from GR-88 to GR-51k. The numbers represents the weighting of the shafts, but also how it performs. The higher numbers are made with a slightly more rigid on the upper half of the shaft and made for a "hitter of the ball" with an aggressive transition during their downswing. The lower numbers are made for the "sweepers" or those with a smooth transition in their swing.
The GR-88 model is on the very top of the chart and made for the most aggressive and fast swingers. It is a heavy shaft in the 80 gram range and is made with a very rigid characteristic that will withstand very fast swing speeds and provide the most consistent performance. It is a choice for many long drivers and competitive players.
The GR-88 Fairway Wood shaft is made to match the GR-88 line of driver, utility and iron shafts. This shaft has a tip size that is slightly larger than .355
