The ALDILA® QUARANTA® Sapphire is a high-performance, ultra lightweight sub-50 gram golf shaft. It has a smooth bend profile provides a responsive tip and mid-section, balanced by a more stable butt-section. The QUARANTA® Sapphire is lighter weight and has a lower torque than the QUARANTA® Blue Series, and features premium ion plating and is strengthened with high-modulus MR70 carbon fiber that helps it launch lower, with a flatter ball flight.
The ALDILA® QUARANTA® Sapphire features a premium Ion Plated (IP) finish and high-modulus MR70 carbon fiber for added strength and stability.

The Ion Plating process creates a sophisticated, premium finish that cannot be achieved just by applying paint. The shaft is put into a vacuum chamber where chrome or silver alloy ions are fused to the shaft. It’s a more costly, time consuming process but it creates a stunning finish that we think is worth the extra time.
NexGen Micro Laminate Technology® (MLT)
ALDILA®’s NexGen Micro Laminate Technology® (MLT) utilizes ultra-thin layers of premium aerospace-grade materials. Shafts with MLT use up to twice as many prepreg plies as alternative shafts, producing a stable, solid laminate void of “dead zones”. This design revolution eliminates inconsistent shots caused by shaft variability, while enhancing feel.
