Graphite Design To Participate In The 2012 Haggin Oaks Golf Expo

SAN DIEGO, CA – April 19, 2012 – Graphite Design, maker of some of the most widely played premium shafts on the PGA TOUR, announced that it will exhibit at the upcoming Haggin Oaks Golf Expo Friday, April 27th through Sunday, April 29th, 2012 at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, California.

Graphite Design will display its complete line of products on the driving range at the Expo. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience the latest Tour-proven products including the new line of G Series hybrid and driver shafts, Tour AD BB shafts, Tour AD DJ shafts, and the popular Tour AD DI – Deep Impact shafts.

“The Haggin Oaks Golf Expo attracts more than 20,000 golfers which makes it a great venue for us to get our products in front of golfers and educate them on the benefits of getting properly fit for a graphite shaft. We look forward to interacting with all the players who attend the Expo,” stated Tak Yamada, President, Graphite Design.

The new G Series hybrid and driver shafts with X Directional Technology are the next generation of premium Graphite Design shafts and are designed to be very adaptable to today’s vast hybrid and driver head technology. The G Series hybrid shaft performance characteristics favor a mid-high launch trajectory and mid ball spin while the G series driver shaft performance characteristics favor a low to mid launch trajectory and mid ball spin.

Graphite Design’s latest XDT technology incorporates the use of the already proven Graphite Design MSI (Material Stiffness Integration) design method as well as a new and unique application of graphite fiber ply angle alignment throughout the shaft structure. During the development phase of XDT, measurable performance gains were discovered through a more balanced distribution of the graphite fiber angles within the piles of the shaft design. This proprietary application of XDT has made the new G Series the most balanced, versatile high performance golf shaft available today.

The Expo runs from 9 am to 5 pm daily. For more information and directions to the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex, please visit
