Who is ACCRA?
ACCRA began under the umbrella of PGMC, a partnership between United Sports Technologies (UST) and Royal Precision. PGMC quickly realized that there was an unmet need for premium golf shafts specifically designed for more discerning golfers working with professional golf club fitters. Thus, ACCRA was created to fill this need by offering the best golf shafts in the industry for professional golf club fittings.
When ACCRA was first introduced, their shafts became an immediate hit on the PGA Tour with 14 PGA players adding ACCRA to their bags. By integrating advanced technology in golf club fitting, ACCRA has built a strong reputation as a shaft industry leader. Today, ACCRA boasts more than 50 Tour victories and is distributed throughout the world in 24 countries. In 2019, the winner of the 2019 U.S. Open played with ACCRA shafts.
The ACCRA Shaft Experience
Now that you know who ACCRA is, it’s time to find out what they’re all about! The first thing to know about ACCRA shafts is that these graphite shafts are only available through an exclusive network of professionally trained club fitters with proprietary tech. Golf shaft fitters like Totally Driven use a unique shaft profiling system to identify the perfect shaft for your swing.
While some golf shaft companies focus primarily on developing shafts for professional golfers, ACCRA understands that the average golfer has different needs from a pro. To meet that need, ACCRA offers several dedicated shaft lines with different price points and shaft profiles. During your professional golf fitting, our experts can help you figure out which works best for you!
Custom Shaft Designs
This is the fun part of choosing your new ACCRA shaft. ACCRA offers completely customizable shaft designs for many shaft models so you can show off your style on the green! Choose from the following options when customizing your shaft.
Shaft, Tip Section, and Inner Graphics Color Choices (choose separately):
Finally, choose from a matte or glossy finish to complete your custom shaft design!
ACCRA uses their S3 (Shaft Simulation System) measuring system to profile their golf shafts for the ultimate quality control in the industry. Unlike many other manufacturers, ACCRA believes that shafts should be designed dynamically to feel identical across fairway woods, hybrids, and drivers.
Using a proprietary technology they call “DyMatch,” ACCRA allows fitters to duplicate the same performance, characteristics, and feel no matter which shaft they’re using. Each ACCRA golf shaft shares the same frequency flex across the same model. This means that during a professional golf fitting, our fitters can recommend different weight shafts based on your flex.
While many other shaft manufacturers become stiffer with added weight, ACCRA flex technology remains stable across all models of shafts. As weight is added, the tip of the shaft can end up becoming stiffer due to a design flaw in other manufacturers’ shafts.
ACCRA also uses these innovations when manufacturing their shafts:
● Carbon Weave Technology (CRT): For their different shaft models, ACCRA uses a variety of weave technologies by combining different composite materials. This allows ACCRA’s engineers to manipulate torsional strength and flexural rigidity across specific shaft sections.
● Ti-Mesh Tip Technology: ACCRA integrates a lightweight Titanium mesh into the tip’s composite fibers to increase stability and strength.
● Uniform Taper Technology: ACCRA’s shafts are engineered with a uniform or constant taper from butt to tip to give you the best feel and provide the best possible energy transfer. This technology is incorporated into nearly every shaft ACCRA manufactures.
● Thin Wall Design: To enhance energy transfer and feedback while giving golfers a smooth ACCRA feel, ACCRA engineers focus on minimizing wall thickness with advanced materials that incorporate a low resin prepreg composite. This higher graphite design minimizes shaft inconsistencies for a faster recovery and better ball speed and clubhead speed.
