Basileus introduces the new 2012 Fiamma Fairway Wood Shaft. Basilius shafts are made of high modulus carbon materials. The high quality carbon contains more glass materials than rubber throughout the shaft giving it a very strong and stable quality. This also provides a solid feel and makes the shaft very consistent which is key in creating a repeatable and reliable trajectory and flight. Fiamma shafts are 40t carbon press and hand rolled to perfection.
Basileus shafts are broken down into 4 main categories determined by the flex of the tip and butt end of the club. This fitting system allows players to find the ideal characteristic shaft for their individual swings. The A, B, C, D categories are shown on a chart as quadrants. The vertical measurement on the chart indicates the shaft's flex characteristic from the middle of the shaft to the butt end. The higher up on the chart (A or B), the less flex there is in those areas. The horizontal measurement is the shafts flex characteristic towards the tip. The further right on the chart (B or D) indicates less flex towards the tip end. All Basileus shafts are made of tightly wrapped carbon material with a very stable anti-deforming cores. This makes the shafts react very true to its flex points and produce a consistent and reliable feel.
The flex options on the Fiamma is measured by the ration of the section of the shaft. A low Tip/Center ratio means The less flex there is to the center to butt end will give the shaft a harder feel at impact, a softer mid to butt section allows for a softer feedback on the hands. For tip stiffness, the softer ratio on the mid to tip section provides extra whip on the down swing and is great for curing slices and getting a higher trajectory. The higher ration for tip to center allow the tip to flex closer to the butt end during the downswing. This type is ideal for those trying to avoid the hooks.
The Basileus Fiamma Fairway Wood Shaft falls in the A quadrant of the chart. This means that the shaft has maximum stable bend toward the tip and a stiffer and stable butt end. It is a designed for those with a compact and smooth swing tempo. The soft flexing overall design allows for maximum feel and easy high trajectory. It is designed to maximize carry distance with minimum effort. The whipping characteristic of the Fiamma, allows the tip end of the shaft to accelerate rapidly at impact, preventing a slice. It comes in a 55, 65, or 75 gram weight option.
Basileus Shafts are a Japan Only release and is made to the highest standards.
Available in R, S, or X flex.
