Synchron II Fairway Woods are one of our most popular woods of all time because of their proven ease of play. These woods feature a shallow face, which lowers the center of gravity for improved trajectory and playability. Our exclusive rail design allows a clean shot even in thick rough. Stronger lofts help carry distance.
- Choice of Shafts to match your swing. The default is the Apollo Ultralight Shadow graphite shaft but you can choose a different shaft if you like. See detailed section on Shafts below.
- Regular black wrap grip.
- Perfect for golfers of all skill levels.

Before you select the shaft to go with the Synchron II Fairway Woods, please read the following write up. The best thing is to let a Pro Shop analyze your swing with a computerized launch monitor. But if that is not convenient, the following information will help you select the right shaft.
- The shaft is the engine of your driver. It does not matter how expensive a clubhead you have – if the shaft is not right for your swing, the results will not be satisfactory.
- The faster your clubhead speed at impact, the greater the distance. To maximize club head speed and distance, you should play the lightest shaft you can without losing control. The key here is ‘without losing control’. A 300 yard shot is of no use if it is out of bounds.
- Ball flight is affected by several factors like loft, ball position, angle of attack and wrist position at time of impact. A tip flexible shaft can help increase launch angle while a stronger tip can help produce a penetrating ball flight.
- Lighter weight shafts in general are more active than heavier shafts. All things being equal a lighter shaft will give you longer distance on center hits. It will be off more on off-center hits. Take into consideration how stable your swing is. The more stable and accurate your swing and swing path, the lighter the shaft you should consider. The more load you apply to the shaft at the last quarter of the swing, the lower the torque and heavier the shaft needs to be.
- Newton’s Second Law:
Newton’s second law is one of the laws of physics that applies to golf.
F = m a
I = m r2
T = (m r2 ) A
F=force, m=mass, A=rotational acceleration, a=linear acceleration, r=radius, I=inertia, T=torque
- Moment of Inertia (MOI):
MOI is the term applied to a clubhead’s resistance to twisting when the ball is struck. It is more important on off center hits. If you hit the ball on the toe of the clubhead, a clubhead with a higher MOI will twist less as a result of the miss hit, creating a better chance that the ball will still go straight or at least not deviate too much from it’s intended path.
Torque is a shaft’s resistance to twisting during a golf swing. A higher torque rating means the shaft twists more and too much torque can lead to the head turning.
- The longer the shaft, the bigger the head or the heavier the club head, the higher the moment of inertia. The higher the MOI, the higher the torsional load applied to the shaft. Therefore, if you are using a big head or an extra long shaft and have a high swing speed, you need to consider using a lower torque shaft to compensate for the extra load applied to the shaft.
Here are the shaft options we have configured for you.
