The ALDILA® RIP was introduced to the golf consumer in 2010. RIP stands for Reverse Inter-laminar Placement. Meaning, some of the bias plies that create torque were moved from the placement near the mandrel to the outside of the shaft walls. The longitudinal plies, that create stiffness were sandwiched between the bias plies. This reconfiguration increased torque and hoop strength, creating a more stable shaft with a different feel.
ALDILA® RIP Alpha The ALDILA® RIP Alpha is a low launching, low spinning golf shaft with low torque. It’s designed for the stronger, more aggressive player.
This hybrid profile is designed to match the performance characteristics of the high-performing and lower launching R.I.P. Alpha woods.
- Low-mid launch angle
- Low spin
- Low torque for rotational accuracy
- Internal "rib structure" increases strength/stiffness
