Aldila RIP Tour Bag Contest
  Aldila Voodoo
This is the last week to enter to win the sharp Aldila RIP Staff Bag. If you've already entered the NV Giveaway there is no need to re-enter for the RIP Staff bag. To enter the RIP bag contest, simply send me an email or tweet with "Aldila RIP" in the subject line. Sorry, US customers only for this contest. Here's a picture of the RIP Tour bag http://www.clubmaker-online.com/products/aldila.rip.html . There is a picture and a bit of information on the Aldila RIP, too. I understand that the winner of last years Masters is bagging the RIP in his driver for the 2010 Masters.

What sets the VooDoo apart from other shafts is its patent pending S-core, or stabilized core, Technology designed to increase distance and provide outstanding accuracy with each swing. The real "magic" of the VooDoo is the high modulus carbon stabilization rib running the length of the shaft. "Our S-core Technology dramatically stabilizes the shaft's cross-section through the use of an internal carbon-fiber rib system," said John Oldenburg, Aldila's Vice President of Engineering. "The innovative rib structure increases hoop strength/stiffness so much that it is 80 percent greater than conventional graphite, and up to 60 percent greater than competitors' attempts at cross sectional stabilization."

Graphite Design DI
I've seen some pictures online of Tiger playing the new Graphite Design Tour AD DI this week during Masters practice sessions.

The DI has a firm tip section and great feel that Graphite Design is known for. I've been following them on Twitter this winter and it seems they're getting great feedback from the tour players. Should be a winner for Graphite Design.

New True Temper Wedge Shafts
I've been hearing rumors of a new True Temper Dynamic Gold wedge shaft called the DG Spinner. Unique ripples near the grip, supposed to affect angle of attack to add spin. Not available yet, probably a few months. Here's some information I dug up: The recent USGA groove modification has significantly increased launch angles and reduced spin rates on both full and low impact wedge shots. DG Spinner has been specifically designed with a revolutionary section just underneath the grip that creates the optimal bending profile to offset the impact of the groove change by decreasing launch angles as much as 2-3 degrees while increasing spin rates by as much as 500+ rpm. The result is a more penetrating trajectory that descends sharply for greater stopping power.

While you're patiently waiting for the new TT wedge shaft, check out the Project X woods and hybrids. Two weeks in a row in the winners bag. Designed for those looking for a lower launch and low spin.

KBS Hi-Rev Wedge Shafts
KBS Steel started out the 2010 PGA Tour with a bang with a first and second place finish at the Sony Open. Tough to get pros to switch iron shafts and they've been steadily gaining popularity on Tour. Try one in the Miura wedges I've been touting the past few months. http://www.clubmaker-online.com/miura.1957.html and here http://www.clubmaker-online.com/miura.wedges.html

Here's information from KBS on the Hi-Rev wedge shafts- Designed to impart additional backspin on the ball, the all-new KBS Hi-Rev couldn't have been introduced at a better time. With the controversial 2010 Groove-Rule changes recently taking effect, the KBS Hi-Rev delivers with more spin and control around greens. By lengthening the tip section, beefing up the weight and keeping the signature KBS step profile; the KBS Hi-Rev shaft will amplify your game while maintaining the signature 'feel' players have come to expect from KBS.
