Accra Golf Shafts continue to create the highest quality golf shafts for the game most serious players. Advancing their successful Tour Z line, the TZ5 golf shaft is better feeling and more responsive while maintaining the superior low launch, low spin attributes often sought after by better players.

TZ5 leverages advanced materials to elevate playability without compromising stability and control. Accra’s dedication to the custom fitting process should be celebrated and the TZ5 is an absolute must-try for players looking to compete or play golf at the highest levels.

Key Features

High modulus material creates a smoother feeling golf shaft that retains a low launch, low spin launch profile.

The balance point of TZ5 has been moved down to smooth the midsection and enhance feel while lowering torque and increasing stability.

The Accra TZ5 shafts can be custom ordered in multiple colors and engraving patterns that make each composition truly yours.

Design and Technology

Accra golf shafts have been played by some of the fastest swingers on professional tours. Continuing the narrative of success, an Accra shaft was also in the driver of the most recent Major Champion. TZ5 builds on the success of these models to give players enhanced feel while maintaining the industry-leading performance tied to the Accra name. TZ5 is designed for the player looking for less lead deflection at impact giving them lower launch, less spin, and more distance.

Accra golf shafts continue to be one of my absolute favorite shafts in the industry. For my testing, I placed the TZ5 75 M5 in my Ping G400 Max driver, the TZ5 85 M5 in my Callaway Epic fairway wood, and the TZ5 95H M5 in my Cobra King Utility Iron. This complete set of shafts outperformed even my lofty expectations. TZ5 is a perfect match for the profile I enjoy playing in my driver and driving iron. During my testing, I saw an improvement in strike location just above the center of the club face giving me lower spins and more distance than I have ever found in a driver.

As a high swing speed player, around 118 miles per hour, it is important to me that my shaft helps stabilize my impact location and gives me the proper launch and spin. TZ5 not only did that but helped me pick up 2 miles per hour of club head speed and 8 total more carry yards thanks to slightly reduced spin. In the driving iron, the TZ5 is an absolute no brainer and will be replacing my current Graphite Design gamer immediately.

TZ5 was exceptional in my driver and hybrid/utility iron. Players looking for a low launch, low spin aftermarket shaft to upgrade their driving performance or insert into their new driver must try the TZ5. While no shaft is perfect for every golfer, Accra continues to deliver shafts that perform for a wide range of swing types and skill levels. TZ5 is the pinnacle of stability and distance performance in a tip stiff profile.


  • The low launch, low spin profile is ideal for high speed players looking to gain accuracy and distance.
  • The TZ5 shaft features a lower balance point that provides enhanced feedback without sacrificing stability.
  • The ability to customize and engrave the TZ5 golf shaft makes each club uniquely yours and is a standout feature of the Accra Golf Brand.


  • Players who prefer a softer tip profile may not find enough launch with the TZ5 shaft and should test TZ6.
  • TZ5 is only availble through advanced fitting centers and can be difficult to demo before purchasing.
  • Hybrid versions of the TZ5 shaft only come standard in a 95-gram option so players looking for 85-grams or below will have to choose another model.

Our Experience

The Accra TZ5 is a high-performance, low-spin driver shaft designed for players seeking a stout, stable profile with minimal kick. It features a very stiff tip section combined with a softer butt and mid-section to promote a lower launch and reduced spin rates.

The TZ5 delivers exceptional consistency and tight dispersion thanks to its low torque design and Accra's Constant Flex Technology. It has a strong, yet smooth feel that doesn't come across as harsh, even in the stiffer flexes.

In testing, the TZ5 produced remarkably low spin numbers with a penetrating ball flight. Its stout profile kept spin rates very low and consistent, leading to tight dispersion and predictable shot shaping.

While the TZ5 launches slightly lower than the more active TZ6 model, it still maintains a playable trajectory for most swing speeds. The lower launch angle makes it an ideal fit for players seeking to reduce spin off the tee without sacrificing too much carry distance.
