The GD Throttle bend profile suits the accomplished golfer seeking a tour-like penetrating trajectory. The stiff tip and high bend point accommodates the "early releaser" or the "quick tempo power loader". Initial feedback from tour players describe the shaft as "a tight shaft you can load up without sacrificing smooth feel through impact". Further, the 47" design attracts long-drive enthusiasts that prefer an extended length driver for increased clubhead speed that will "stay with them". The weight ranges from 70-74 grams which is most popular for golfers seeking these performance attributes.
