TESTERS WANTED!!  - APPLY NOW!!!

 

We're hitting the sweet spot of summer - are you hitting the ball as far as you'd like? Do you think a different shaft would make a difference?

 

Well, that's what we at MGS would like to know, and we'd like 9 MGS loyalists to help us find out. And specifically we'd like to know if a new ACCRA Fx Series shaft will give you a few extra yards while keeping the ball in the short grass.  The FX Series is new this year, and features 3 different types of shaft for 3 different types of player.

Here's the skinny, according to ACCRA: 

 

Fx 100: Promotes higher initial launch with controlled spin.  For those wanting to increase launch angle  with a super light-weight shaft. 

 

Fx 200: Promotes mid initial launch with controlled spin. For those need some tip stability, but with a kick.

 

Fx 300: Promotes lower initial launch with controlled spin. For those needing more tip stability, but also with a kick.

 

 

(We will NOT be testing the Fx 400 shaft at this time)

 

HOW TO ENTER: 

 

1. You MUST be an MGS Forum Member to apply. If you aren't, sign up HERE.

2. List your current driver shaft, flex and swing speed.

3. You MUST post a picture of your current driver shaft!

4. You MUST be able to install your own shaft, or have it done for you. No adapters are included. 

5. Open to avid golfers in the Continental US and Canada!

 

Based on your information, we'll work with ACCRA to get you into one of the three Fx Series shafts.

We'll announce the selected testers the week of July 20th.

 

For more information, check out the ACCRA website.

 

Good luck!!

Current shaft that I am playing is a tour issue UST Mamiya Elements Earth8f4 (stiff flex) tipped to play like an X flex. My swing speed is between 100-110 on a regular basis. I am able to install myself and would love a shot at one of these shafts! Thanks for your time

I currently play a Grafalloy Bi-matrix 80 Gram X-flex in a Ping Anser 8.5

Swing speed of 125+

 

I tend to still hit my drives very high even when I set the driver to 8 which is where I normally have it, would like a lower ball flight. 

 

I did the install of this shaft from the stock one so I can handle doing that again.

I installed the Pro Launch Blue 55s in my Bang driver head. My swing speed is between 95-100 and I average around 260-280 yards with my tee shots. I would like to try the ACCRA FX 200.

ACCRA Fx series driver shaft tester application is as follows:

 

Current driver:  PING G30 9 degree

Current shaft flex:  stiff

Swing speed: 100-102 mph

 

Certainly could use a few extra yards; the Fx 200 or Fx 300 would be a most desired choice to test.  Thank you for the opportunity.

 

All the best,

Perry

 

Attached is the pic of my standard Tour 65 gram stiff shaft.

If I get the chance to hit this shaft you can just ship it down the road to Brampton with my KBS C-Taper shaft order im putting in next week :)

 

Current Driver:  Big Birtha Alpha '14

Shaft Flex:  X-Stiff, Tipped 0.5" playing at 44.75"

Swing Speed: 112mph

 

I do all my own club work and can test on Foresight.  

 

Spin rates hover around the 2000rpm and launch 12-13 deg carry 285ish with lots of roll out.  

 

self educated in shaft performance and understand how weight/flex/length and torque play a roll.

 

Thanks again for the opportunity

 

Regards

I use a TaylorMade JetSpeed driver (stiff flex).  I would try test the new shaft to improve my driving game.  I don't have my golf club with me but found a picture. Thanks, MarkBuns
