TPT Golf Shafts: Graphite Shafts for Any Swing Speed
TPT Golf Shafts “Offer Unique Level of Feel to Golfers”
TPT Golf announced a new range of graphite golf shafts that debuted in 2017. According to the makers, “Using ‘Thin Ply Technology’ (TPT) carbon fiber materials and a patented manufacturing process developed by its parent company, North Thin Ply Technology SARL, TPT Golf is setting new standards in shaft performance.”
The patent-pending manufacturing process enables golf shafts to be made with exceptional accuracy. In addition, it produces fiber placement in a highly uniform way around the shaft. This method creates a spineless shaft and overcomes the inconsistencies sometimes seen in shafts produced by the more-traditional table rolling methods. Rather, TPT shafts provide exceptional feel, leading to tighter shot dispersion, low spin and increased distance.
TPT Golf has a team of dedicated experts who are working on building shafts for Tour players.

The People Behind the Tech
Shaft flex is an important part of the design of the club. Therefore, getting your clubs fit for your swing can make a huge difference in overall performance.
Biomechanical specialist Jean-Jacques Rivet has been instrumental in developing this new range and validating performance. He’s also been a huge influence in developing a custom shaft-fitting process that allows the company to offer fully customized shafts.
Golf instructor David Leadbetter has also provided strong technical support during the range development. Not only that, Leadbetter entered into a partnership with TPT Golf. As a result, the partnership created a shaft-fitting network linked to the David Leadbetter Academies around the world. “In a sport where feel is everything, TPT shafts offer a unique level of feel to golfers,” says Leadbetter. “This is the most technically advanced shaft for distance and direction, and even makes your bad shots better.”
Combining TPT Golf, JJ Rivet and David Leadbetter – all experts in their own field – means that shafts are being looked at in a whole new way. Therefore, for the first time ever, a shaft can be designed that starts with the physical capabilities of the human body. From there, it goes on to reflect the coaching being received in practice.
TPT can now provide the best-performing products for Tour pros and amateurs alike. Moreover, this is a consistent and precise product for the shaft marketplace. The range of TPT Golf shafts has been designed to hopefully simplify the shaft fitting process. Thus, there should be models to suit players with any swing speed.
