Crazy has provided me with official info on the new Target Tour Steel shafts from their new Crazy Sports line. There will be two different finishes as well as two different weights for irons and wedges. I had thought that Crazy was using some sort of steel and carbon mix however it turns out that Crazy is using a proprietary technique derived from ancient Japanese sword making to control the hardness and shape of each Target Tour steel shaft. By controlling the hardness via high frequency heat, Crazy actually stops short of completely hardening the shaft. Like a Japanese Katana/sword, it gives the shaft the proper flexibility yet firmness for optimal feel and performance. Crazy has designed the Target Tours to have the consistency of steel but the playability and feel of carbon. This tedious process involves much more work for each individual shaft but at the same time gives each shaft much more attention to detail, thus more consistent performance.
All mid kicking Target Tours are taper tip 0.355″ and will be available in two finishes, a standard silver finish and an upgraded dark chrome finish. The Tour 120 is a 123g and available in Stiff/Regular, Stiff, and X-Stiff. There is also a Tour Lite 105 is 106g with Regular or Stiff Flexes. The Target Tour 120 is for the faster and stronger player wanting a stable mid trajectory ball and a shaft with good feel and consistency. The Target Tour 105 is for the slightly slower swinger who wants a slightly higher launch and the feel of carbon in a a 100g+ steel shaft.
There are two Target Tour Wedge shafts, the Tour Wedge 120 or 121g Wedge Flex or Tour Wedge 110 which are 111g wedge flex.
Pricing is as follows for the shafts, any model in Silver Finish is 120.00 per shaft (MSRP 140.00), while Dark Chrome Finish models are 150.00 (MSRP 170.00) per shaft. We are taking pre orders now so contact us if you would like to reserve a set.
UPDATE: Clarified a few things with Crazy. All shafts are 0.355″ taper tips. Butt size is 15.25mm or 0.600″. The Target Tours are all mid kick. There was some confusion with the color, the silver looking finish is actually the standard finish and the darker Dark Chrome Finish is the more expensive finish.
