Stability and Low Spin in a Lightweight Shaft. One of the challenges in manufacturing a high performance lightweight shaft is reducing ball spin and the “ballooning” ball flight and loss of distance that so often accompanies lighter shaft weights and their thin-walled designs. Mission accomplished. The Light-55 was designed to help produce increased club head speed without sacrificing shaft stability and performance. This shaft will be an absolute boon to players in the 70mph – 105mph ranges who may benefit from a lighter weight shaft.
