TPT Red Range Golf Shaft Detailed Review
Design and Technology
Thin-Ply technology was born from carbon fiber sails. Technology that has been used to create world-class speed in America’s Cup Racing is now being used to create high performance golf shafts. Specifically, Thin-Ply 2.0 winds layers of carbon fiber around each other to create a seamless golf shaft. No seam means no performance spikes when the golf shaft is rotated either during installation or during loft and lie adjustments with hosel settings. Also, no more paying to have your golf shafts spined due to inconsistencies in their builds.
The completely automated approach being taken by TPT eliminates the need for human intervention during the shafts manufacturing and leads to higher levels of quality and performance control shaft-to-shaft. For golfers this will mean that every TPT shaft they try should perform the same when compared to a TPT shaft at another place or on a different day. What you test is what you get and that will mean more ideal fits across the board.
TPT uses a distinct naming convention for their Red Rangeshafts. Hi denotes higher launch profiles, and Lo denotes lower. 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19 integers are used to create weight and flex categories for each shaft. Lower numbers correspond to heavier weights and stiffer flexes. A full chart of their available options can be found on their website. Seeing a fitter is always recommended to ensure you receive your ideal fit as TPT Red Range golf shaft stand in a category all their own.

Regardless, the Red Range shaft performed beyond expectations and outperformed almost all other shafts tested at Golfers Authority. The hallmarks of the Red Range seemed to be how consistent each delivery feels and how my misses shrunk, even when I didn’t make my best swing. The feel of the TPT Red Range is really responsive yet stable. Golfers that fit well into the profiles TPT provides will likely see some of their best ever performances with this range of shafts.
