The Graphite Design product is one of the fastest growing shafts on professional tours, having anywhere from 40 plus players each week-end carrying at least one, if not more, graphite shafts in their golf bags. The Graphite Design shaft has a reputation for control, power and scoring. One of the reasons the graphite shafts have become increasingly popular is the MSI (modulus stiffness integration) design concept — it produces greater accuracy and distance with improved feel over other shaft products. “The performance benefits make the GDI graphite shaft a “World Class” leader,” explained Pro Golfer Greg Norman. The 2001 season will mark an important move for GDI as they will make available their graphite shafts for the consumer. While the shafts are designed to meet the demands of the tourney professional, there are shafts hat are made for all skill levels, from the week-end warrior to ladies to seniors. The extraordinary performance of the shaft is primarily related to the integrity of the MSI (modulus stiffness integration) design concept, and the quality of the raw materials and the precision with which the golf shaft is produced. GDI’s expert research and development team consistently is seen as the industry standard with its uniformity, preciseness and symmetrical design. Their 50,000 square foot manufacturing facility is one of the most advanced operations in the world, using the newest and best materials available. GDI uses over 142 different types of composite materials within their design portfolio. Graphite Design was formed in August 1989 and fast became the leader in quality. Each golf shaft is designed for performance with the best manufacturing process and technologically advanced equipment. GDI has developed robotic equipment and patented designs for ultra manufacturing technologies. In 1999, GDI began serving the Professional Golf Tours in both the United States and Europe and has produced over 85% of all graphite shafts played on the Japanese Professional Golf Tour.
