True Temper Sports announces introduction of new DG Pro shaft

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- True Temper Sports introduced the new DG Pro shaft, the industry's first progressive iron shaft. Designed for pros and those aspiring to play like them by True Temper's design team, DG Pro features an optimized progressive flex profile while also delivering the tour-proven consistency of True Temper's Dynamic Gold family.

Each set of DG Pro shafts are designed with Progressive Technology which combines easy to hit long irons with short irons that deliver unmatched feel and spin control. This is accomplished through a precise marriage of weight and shaft diameter modifications throughout the set. The result is the most advanced iron shaft performance available on the market today.

"Our new DG Pro shaft raises the bar on performance from premium steel shafts and we are excited to make it available to the public after extensive testing at True Temper's Area 61 test facility and multiple players on the PGA TOUR putting it in play this season," said Greg Cavill, True Temper's vice president of alloy engineering and development. "Everything about DG Pro is progressive: the flex profile, step pattern, weight profile and internal material distribution. This allows us to really tailor the specific playing characteristic of the long, short and mid irons for optimum feel, spin control and trajectory and ultimately confidence-inspiring performance."

DG Pro is available worldwide through True Temper's Performance Fitting Center network of high-end clubfitters in three flexes: R300, S300 and X100. DG Pro's introduction retail price is $320 (3-PW).
