Crazy Royal Decoration Athlete Fairway Wood Shaft
Crazy introduces their all new Royal Decoration Athlete line of shafts. While the Crazy Royal Decoration line has been known to be a light weight and built of the average swing speed golfers, the new Athlete model is built with the aggressive and faster swingers in mind.
The RD Athlete Fairway wood shaft is made for a strong mid trajectory with very consistent and soft feel. It is made with a very stable tip section that allows a player to swing freely without worrying about timing of the club head. It has the same great feel as the original Royal Decoration shafts while having a slightly firmer characteristic aimed to provide quick feedback for the aggressive swingers.
Crazy is one of Japan's top aftermarket shaft makers specializing in high modulus carbon shafts.
Crazy believes in creating the best performing shafts only from the best carbon available in Japan.
Crazy uses 40t to 80t (depending on the model) full sheets of hand rolled carbon in all their shafts.
So how does carbon grading work? Shafts are created with carbon fibers weaved together, and these fibers are measured by their modulus of elasticity in tension. Typical golf shafts are around 24t or 30t, the measurement of tensile strength. These lower grade shafts are more flexible and because of this the shaft is slow to regain its original shape on the downswing creating inconsistent impact where a player must rely heavily on timing due to the flexibility of the shaft.
As the tensile strength increases, the carbon weaves are more dense, more rigid and return more quickly to their original shape. The flex and rebound of the shaft becomes more predictable equaling more consistent shots and much tighter dispersion. The higher tensile ratings ratings in golf shafts are also related to the higher grades containing more glass and metal particles which are more rigid and lower grades containing more flexible rubber particles. Part of the reason why Crazy shafts are so explosive are that, even though they use those tightly weaved, denser carbon weaves, they create shafts with very active and thinner sections which lead to very high action (but controlled) in the shaft.
Carbon shafts 40t and higher are considered high grade and different graded carbon performs differently in every model.
All Crazy shafts have always been known to spin very low and the new models are no exception.
It all comes down to finding the right model which matches your swing style and speed and give you the performance you want.
