SirShanksAlot Comments: Okay, we’ve shared glimpses of the new Aldila Phenom Shaft in the past, and now we’ve come across some new details from worldgolf.com. Here’s what they have to say:
The latest addition to Aldila’s RIP series is the RIP Phenom, which incorporates Aldila’s Tour proven RIP Technology® with a unique composite construction to create a new and innovative shaft flex profile for maximum distance and control – the Hyperbolic Flex Zone™.
RIP Technology repositions the materials and patterns to optimize the performance characteristics of the shaft. The Phenom’s Hyperbolic Flex Zone provides a stiff tip section for optimal launch and spin control, with a very firm butt section for an incredibly stable feel. The center section of the shaft is softer to provide outstanding kick through impact to maximize ball speed.
Through the use of a Hyperbolic Flex Zone, the new RIP Phenom incorporates the same flex, torque and feel properties that have made the original RIP the leading shaft on the PGA Tour, with a flex profile to achieve unparalleled performance and launch characteristics for better players,” said Bahl. The RIP Phenom is available in 50 and 70-gram weight designs in R, S and X flexes. Suggested retail is $299.
