I checked out their website, but I couldn't find anything on "Tour
Flighted" shafts.  Can someone please shed some light into this for me?
TIA.

The flighted Rifles have a flexpoint that varies within the set ... the
longer the iron, the lower the flex point. So long irons should have
"higher ball flight, easier launch and greater distance", while the
short irons should have a "lower trajectory, greater accuracy and
control".

The standard Rifles have the same flexpoint throughout the set. The
6-iron is the common club to both sets. The flighted Rifles are also
slightly heavier than the standard Rifles, by a few grams.

AFAIK, "flighted" and "tour flighted" are the same shaft.
