loomis golf shafts? on golf channel?

6 posts in this topic

i had a thread earlier on trying to find a golf shaft to replace my wilson smooth drivers fuji 360 efit.

loomis golf shafts? the one thing some were as unsure about as i am. But literally just seconds ago as i was signing on i saw these shafts on golf channel's *champions tour learning center". custom collegiate sponsored shafts in driver, fairway, and putter shafts. Still curious if anybody has used it? tried it? they apparently had a successful history and recently have had success winning 2 fedex cup tournaments or something. (not mentioned which tournaments, which made me skeptical)

anybody know anything?

~+~just cause im young doesnt mean im a "this era tiger, phil, etc." fan.

flashback to the 09' open. To Watson, i thank you. playin golf ever since.~+~

wouldn't surprise me as Loomis makes some of the finest (and prohibitively expensive) graphite fishing rods - getting into golf club shafts would make sense.

G Loomis used to make golf shafts, at the time they were considered pretty high end shafts. I still have one laying around in an old golfsmith driver head I built.  I think I assembled that club in 1997, and have no clue when they stopped making golf shafts.  They were used extensively on tour, and for pros who used graphite in their irons, it was almost always G Loomis.

I've used some Loomis fishing rods. I had no idea they ever were in the golf industry. Anyone have pics?

A Google search reveals Aldila bought the golf part of "G Loomis" and is using "Loomis" to sell shafts with the names of football teams on them.

"G Loomis" still makes fishing rods with a much nicer looking website then the golf shafts.

Dear Brad,

Just replying to your old message about Loomis Golf Shafts. GLoomis was a very successful golf shaft brand back in the 90's and they were popular with their composite iron shafts. Aldila bought them back in the 90's and had 5 years to use the brand name and they decided to kill the brand. These "collegiate" shafts are a start in bringing the brand back to the marketplace. The composite wood shaft was designed as a "high Launch", mid spin product. Many golfers that have tested the shaft see an increase in ball speed when testing on launch monitors compared to other shafts. Their steel decorated products are a True Temper Dynamic Gold wedge shaft and a True Temper step-less steel putter shaft.

    • I see guys golfing in jeans every time I play.
    • I guess it depends on the rules of the tournament?  I would think that if everyone in the tourney has to keep up a certain pace of play, then it wouldn't matter if there was no group behind you.  You have to maintain the same pace as everyone else.
    • Interestingly, in nearly 50 years of playing golf at everything from 9-hole munis, to military courses, to private clubs, and everything in between, throughout the U.S., and around the world, I don't think that I've ever seen someone golfing in jeans. Just an observation.  
    • Thanks for the response!  I do know that and played with some used clubs just to see if the idea was worthy and I think it is. I am at the range or in the back yard at the net everyday when I am not out of town or if it is duck, deer or turkey season. Sometimes twice a day. I am now looking into building a custom set of Value Golf components. Their lies and weights are the exact same for all irons wedges and hybrids. We shall see. 
    • Was feeling very fatigued today. Back was especially tired and I had a very hard time hitting anything past a 7 iron. Was so badly off sync. I dont even remember when Ive hit shots that fat the last time... I try to avoid hitting the longer clubs when I feel this way cause I always seem to ingrain some bad habits and compensations cause Im too tired to stay in the right positions. I sometimes get some of these "symptoms" on the course but theyre manageable today was very extreme.   Wedge shots I can control even when Im tired so I ended up hitting a lot of  52,56 and pw shots. Im hitting my wedges so well right now that I should really start going for a lot more flags instead of always playing for that 1/100 mishit. Old habits are just so hard to break. I was also finally able to get some of my random shanks on tape. Its very rare out on the course but on the range its a bit too common. From video it seems to be a combination of a weaker grip, setting too close and a very narrow stance. So basically just not paying attention. Sort of makes sense why it primarily happens on the range.   Idk how the angles are this bad (again...) but this was mainly for checking some specific things I wanted to see so meh.
