Welcome to Penley Research & Development
Welcome to Carter Penley’s P.R.D. (Penley Research and Development) website featuring the latest and most advanced designed golf shafts in todays market.
Our quality golf shafts, through advance design, materials, and manufacturing processes, are made to the most exacting tolerances. The result is a golf shaft that yields a consistent flex time after time. A club maker can always depend on Penley to deliver a consistent, high quality product every time.
All new Penley golf shafts are primarily designed to create the optimum club for the player, including the Touring Pro. Our design yields a shaft with precision and control like no other, it avoids the compounding effect of a players’ miss-hit and offers more greens in regulation.
When you order an ‘S’ flex golf shaft (or any other desired golf shaft flex), you receive an ‘S’ flex not almost an ‘X’ or almost an ‘R’. All Penley shafts are designed, machined and spec’d as a specific defined shaft flex.
With the development of Penley’s new performance design & manufacturing processes such as the TBARTM (Tip to Butt Aspect Ratio) algorithm and ZONE FLEXTM Characterization, Penley golf shafts are a level above ALL others. We are considered by many top club makers and players as the highest performing and most exacting golf shafts available in the industry for distance, accuracy and consistency.
