The shafts of our clubs are all cut using a process called rift
sawing / quarter sawing. This cutting process produces the best
quality of straight grain wood. This is very important to the
production of golf club shafts for a number of reasons:
It allows for the shaft to be straight when routered out.
It allows the wood to be at it strongest when milled into a
It allows us to provide you with a set of clubs with the

Plain Sawn vs.
Quarter Sawn and Rift Sawn Lumber:
The grain that shows on the surface of your club's shaft will
appear different depending on how the wood was cut.
Plain sawn (or flat-sawn) lumber has the growth rings of the tree
parallel to the board's broad face. Plain sawn wood highlights the
grain, loops and growth swirls of the wood.
Quarter sawn has the growth rings of the tree approximately
perpendicular to the surface. Quarter sawn wood has the
straightest grain, and is used for our premium shafts.
Rift Sawn lumber is cut at a 30-degree or greater angle to the
growth rings. This produces shafts with accentuated vertical or
"straight" grain patterns.
Old World Meets
New World Technology:
We customize our
clubs shafts from precision cut lengths to fine tuning the attachment to the
club head so that the increment of frequency increase from the
longest to the shortest club in the set will be exactly the
same. This is "frequency matching".
Nobody else does this!
