Basileus introduces the New 2012 Zaffiro Driver 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. The Zaffiro shafts are 40t carbon press and hand rolled to perfection. They also feature a real silver plating finish for a premium look.
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 Zaffiro 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 Zaffiro Driver Shaft falls in the c quadrant of the chart. This means that the shaft is designed for maximum flex from tip to butt. It is designed for slower swing speed players to maximize carry distance. It is designed to accelerate the full flex of the shaft during the downswing and create a high launch with mid to high spin. This allows for effortless carry distance and distance for the slower and smoother swing tempo. The Zaffiro is a great shaft for senior and ladies, with it light weight 50gram design.
Basileus Shafts have specific specs for Drivers and Fairway Woods, making each shaft provide a precise feedback and feel depending on the club.
