RENENS, SWITZERLAND — Swiss golf shaft manufacturer TPT is extending its innovative Red Range Fairway Wood Shafts lineup with its tour-validated 14 Series and 15 Series.
These fairway wood-specific shafts are designed to help tour players and golfers with tour-like swing speeds maximize the performance of their fairway woods. For the first time, it also offers golfers a fairway wood shaft that perfectly matches the feel of TPT’s Red Range Driver Shafts.
“We continue to receive praise from club fitters and golfers around the world for paying attention to this neglected category of golf shafts,” said TPT Chairman Francois Mordasini. “With the Red Range 14 Series and 15 Series shafts for fairway woods, we are now offering Swiss precision for every kind of golfer across their woods.”
The Red Range 14 Series and 15 Series Fairway Wood shafts are already making an impact on the professional tours. Korn Ferry Tour Top-25 Player Paul Barjon used a Red Range 14 Lo Fairway Wood shaft to win the Huntsville Championship. The Red Range Fairway Wood shafts are also in play on PGA Tour, LPGA Tour and PGA Tour Champions.
“It was clear from the first day of testing with Paul Barjon that the Red Range Fairway Wood Shaft would immediately improve his game, and he switched immediately,” said TPT Head of Performance Jon Sinclair. “There has never been anything like the Red Range Fairway Wood shafts before in terms of performance, precision, and of course feel. All Red Range Shafts are true Swiss-engineered products and golfers will feel the difference immediately.”
The 14 Series is the most robust shaft in the TPT Red Range Fairway Wood lineup. It’s designed for the strongest players on the PGA Tour and is available in two profiles: Hi and Lo.
The low-launching 14 Lo Fairway Wood shaft weighs 93 grams at its uncut length of 46 inches and boasts an ultra-low 2.8 degrees of torque. The higher-launching 14 Hi Fairway Wood shaft offers a slightly lighter weight of 90 grams and an ultra-low torque of 3 degrees.
The 15 Series will fit most other PGA Tour players and golfers with tour-like swing speeds. Like the 14 Series Fairway Wood shafts, it is available in two profiles (Hi and Lo). The 15 Lo weighs 87 grams and has a torque of 3.1 degrees. The 15 Hi weighs 84 grams and has 3.3 degrees of torque.
TPT’s Red Range Driver and Fairway Wood Shafts have an MSRP of $600 USD and are available at more than 180 TPT Authorized Fitting locations. To locate a fitter near you, visit tptgolf.com/get-fit.
