Interesting update. Today I took my M6 into Roger Dunn with the Rogue white to test against the Sim. My numbers on their launch monitor were the same as at my house. Averaged 290 yards on 2700 rpm with swing speed around 112. Then I put the Rogue White in the Sim. First swing was 320 at 1700 rpm. I didn’t take another shot (I had already played today and had a sore back). I walked out five minutes later with a new sim and no M6.
Very happy to hear you got the results we were looking for, albeit with the new SIM head. It's a funny thing how certain shafts and heads seem to work so well together, and I do suspect you will grow more comfortable with Rogue White as you get time with it. It feels different from Pro Orange so sometimes it takes a few sessions to find your release point again when switching.
Are you seeing anything with the Rogue White in the new SIM compared to say a '16 M2 that would make someone switch heads?
We can achieve the same launch with much more true loft on SIM. It tends to make the driver more controllable. M2 8.5 is exceptionally high in ball speed but some of that has to do with how low a loft you need to play it at. Mine is basically 7 degrees on the face. My SIM is 8.5 on the face and giving me similar numbers with just a bit less spin with the same combo. And I haven't really had any issues with that knuckleball cut that I can sometimes get with M2. SIM will give similar results with better control, at least for me.
Can anyone confirm the butt OD for the Kuro Kage DC 70TX is 0.605"? Trying to get my grip build up correct to match the rest of the set. I expected it to be a bit thicker as other Mitsubishi shafts I'm trying out as well like Pro White/Orange.
The website has the 70X at 0.622" and unless I'm being an idiot with my calipers I'm not getting that at all.
Interesting Toll. I've been able to loft up my M2 wjotj the White two clicks. Not sure what that makes it? (9.5 head).
Is it possible to get a 10-10.25° loft on a Sim in tj neutral position? Not sure if you have seen your issue heads yet.
Otherwise I'll play the M2 until it cracks or caves.
Once I get new irons I'm going to get a white and put in a SIM 3 wood.
Thanks for answering my dumb questions. You help is going to help me achieve some goals this year with that White in driver. I'm a broken record I know. My dispersion has Never been this good. I can swing easy, smooth or go hard.
Hey Toll what are the differences in the rogue white 130 70tx and 60tx. Most importantly what’s the difference in spin
Yes we can measure heads to get you the loft you need. We also run a full retail shop with custom build capabilities. We can supply or build you anything.
I can't supply that data as we use it fit customers with. I can, however, fit you based on the data if you'd like to go that route.
Has anyone in here compared the graphite design AD XC to any of these shafts? Especially the pro white and/or orange?
Any update on data for the diamana ZF?
We won't be adding that data. The shaft is readily available retail so at this point it doesn't make sense to invest the time into anything more on it.
We do however have a host of new Protos and Tensei AV white and orange available as of Monday, so there will be a data and photo thread, or several, up soon.
I tend to get along with most equipment... I can usually make clubs work for me (I’ve hit my moms senior lady driver well on the range for fun)... for whatever reason, when I’m swinging a hazardous yellow I can hit the ball... just low, dead shots... I’ve tried it in multiple clubs and somehow managed to break the 2 iron with one in it...
the obvious solution of stop trying to make that shaft work is obvious. I’m curious if you have any thoughts on WHY I can’t hit it...
ive gamed matrix black ties, aldilas of all make and model, and hit the ventus black in a 60x just fine... I’ve gotten along fine with other project x shafts as well.

Driver and Putter are set for now. Wedges are safe for time being.
Maybe stick with your wheelhouse.. the sr lady drivers?
I have been looking for a purple shaft!
Kiyoshi purple all day
ha, they are still expensive on eBay... I was considering a pink aldila for a bit, but for some reason they don’t make it in the weight and flex I want.
Watch golfwrx bst or post on want to buy. I sold a kiyoshi purple 6 05 awhile back on bst so i know they come up every now and again.
It's quite counterbanced. Could be that the swingweight is just so light that it throws off your release to a great degree. Interesting issue.
That sounds like a reasonable answer... I am improving my path, but was quite outside and thus depended on timing my hands to stay in play... might have to give it another try when I’m done fixing my swing.
Anyone have any experience with the new Diamana D Limited? How does it compare to the Diamana D+ limited edition? Would love to also know against KK DC XT....
Closest thing I've seen to Kuro Kàge Dual Core XT is Aldila Proto 1.0 in terms of ball flight and feel. Spin is a shade lower however.
Would anyone be interested in a 2020 update of this thread? We've tested so many new shafts recently with Tensei AV pro line, Aldila Protos, Rip-x etc that I've considered investing the time to do it if the interest is there.
Does the Pope 💩 in the woods. Absolutely!
if the smoke green tx and the Accra m5 are I’m there I’m clicking on it. Throw in the new la Bryson offerings and I’m drooling

I'm with extrastiff - most definitely want to see the update with all the latest and greatest shafts (mostly the stiffest).
Accra isn't a client of ours, and I'll use in house inventory for this, so unfortunately they will not be included unless the company or some outside client wants to submit raw product for inclusion.
I've also considered doing a regular segment here about special combos. A little write up about driver/shaft combos we've been seeing that really are highly effective combinations across a range of customers. I'd that goes over well and is popular maybe I can expand on it over time.
