TRPX Raytis Touale Shaft
The Raytis line is TRPX's ultra light series of shafts. The Raytis Touale is designed for players with a slightly faster tempo who want a balance of control and distance in an ultra light shaft.
The Touale ranges from 52g for the S flex to a very light 56g for the XX Flex. The Touale is easy to load, has a super kick and balances control and distance for all around performance. Its timing matches up well with average swing speeds but quicker tempos and more aggressive transitions and is recommended for players who swing under 105mph. Compared to the even lighter Ravie, the Touale is stiffer all around but still plays on the softer side due to its weigh which results in fantastic feel.
The Touale features full length 40t carbon with 46t carbon reinforcements around the tip section in a cross axis multi weave design. The stronger tip section keeps launch down and reduces spin while the softer butt and mid section maximize feel and shaft kick during release. Because lighter shafts tend to launch higher, TRPX designed the kick-point to be mid but slightly towards the tip side only hence the designation Mid Low. This coupled with the reinforced tip section creates a medium launch with a powerful ball flight.
Recommended suggestions for flex based on player distance, but bear in mind, these are only approximates as every player is different not only in speed but in swing style and player ability. The Touale plays on the softer side due to its weight, so it is not uncommon to step up a flex if you are not confident with a soft feeling shaft. Get properly fit and ask us for recommendations when unsure about model and flex.

IT HAS BEEN 5 YEARS SINCE HIGH MODULUS CARBON SHAFTS TOOK THE JAPANESE GOLF MARKET BY STORM. FROM SENIORS, TO AVERAGE GOLFERS, TO ATHLETE GOLFERS AND PROS, EVERYONE CAN BENEFIT FROM PREMIUM CARBON SHAFTS. TRPX (TRIPLE XXX) HAS BEEN BORN WITH ONE GOAL IN MIND AND THAT IS TO MAXIMIZE THE POTENTIAL OF ALL GOLFERS.
TRPX shafts are made from start to finish here in Japan. Premium grade full length high tensile carbon sheets, with multi weave designs are hand rolled and hand finished for perfect consistency and quality. 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 these shafts are slow to regain their 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 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. TRPX shafts feature complex high modulus carbon designs with multi axis weaves to create optimal FEEL, DISTANCE and STABILITY.
Because each TRPX shaft is hand rolled and finished, quality is very high but supply very limited. While TRPX shafts are not considered limited editions, they should be treated that way due to the limited numbers available.
