Hey.



Just wondering what shafts all the juniors are playing on here?



I'm not bothered about flex and don't want this turning into a i play **** flex shaft etc.



I just bought some Project X shafts for my irons and look forward to trying them out.



For the woods i think i will go with Aldila VS Proto.



Over to you...



Mike.

    I have Diamana Whiteboard 73 in my driver and it is a cannon. Looking for a heavy Fujikura shaft for my 3 wood because I need a little bit more weight. I don't use my hybrid that much so I am fine with the VS Proto in it. I have S300s in my irons but am looking to get some PX shafts for them because I need to lower the flight.

    wait if you hit it high enough as it is, why would you buy rifles?, they hit it higher than dynamic golds

    Not for me.



    Tried them out today and they start off on a high launch then flatten out.

    Playing dgs300's in the irons and wedges theyre perfect for what i need not worth changing the things that are working.

    If there was a good enough clubmaker around my area i would put diamana blueboards in my woods.

    I'm still a big fan of Aldila NV. The launch numbers are really good and it gives an awesome boring ball flight, espeically in the FT-3. Dynamic Gold in irons although I've considered Project X as a tend to launch irons quite low. Maybe a consideration for any future sets.

    Driver: Stulz LLC Nano Arrow 50, stiff



    3-Wood: Aldila VS Proto 60, stiff



    5-Wood/3-Hybrid: Grafalloy Epic 70, stiff



    4-Hybrid: Grafalloy Epic 75 (custom), stiff



    5-PW Irons: Royal Precision Rifle Project X, 5.5



    50* Wedge: True Temper Dynamic Gold, S400



    55* Wedge: True Temper Dynamic Gold, S400



    60* Wedge: True Temper Dynamic Gold, S400



    Putter: UST Frequency Filtered double bend putter shaft







    I'm very happy with most of my shafts.



    Some of my complaints:



    The driver shaft is awesome, but it's the one with a triangular-tip, which has a lot of torque. Sometimes it can get away from me a bit and go offline.



    Also, I'd prefer something a little softer in my wedges, DG S300's probably. But, it's not too important.

    Well it usually depends on what day of the week it is. Currently I have three drivers and depending on how my shoulders feel (torn labrum in both) I'll go with a stiff Fuji 8021 Proto or either an X in the Rombax 7v06 or Mitsubishi Tour Iverx. I've played a UST Proforce 65 ATR in stiff in my 4 wood for about six years and I play the Fuji FTB-90 stiff tipped 1/4" in my hybrid. It's the satin finish PX in all the irons and wedges.



    EDIT: New driver with the stiff flex Rombax Pink Proto- soooooo much smoother on the shoulders. All those other setups (except the mitsu) will be for sale shortly if anyone is looking for some reasonable tour issue stuff.

    Right now I have a stock shaft on my driver, Speeders on my wood and hybrid, and I am looking at shafts for my irons right now. Lets just say I swing a little too hard for regular flex graphite shafts nowadays("CRACK!"). Good thing it's not the season.

    I've been played a grafalloy blue shaft for the past two seasons, stiff flex, and I swing about 108. I like how its not too boardy, I prefer to be able to easily and properly load a shaft over playing a stiffer shaft where on an off day I might be trying to hard just to get the thing to flex at the top of my swing.



    Its not exotic, but I love it.

    It's myth that the more expensive the shaft the better it will work for you. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':haha:' />.

    for all of you I'm reading about switching to PX shafts I have a word of warning: get tested for them first. If you play dg s300 you probably only need a 5.0 PX, 5.5 max. The way the shafts are measured is a little different and they usually play about 1/2 flex firmer than labled.

    S300's in my MP-60s, theyre sweet.

    S300 in my 904f, sweet

    Graffaloy Blue in 983k not sweet im not a fan, i just feel its hard to load and not active at all. Its hard to get it up in the air and just feels like a lamp post. But thats just my opinion, some may like this shaft but i struggle with it. Hoping to get rid of it soon with christmas money.
