    GD marketed the gat iron shafts around 2000 that had titanium weave in the first 13".This is not a new idea ; but creates a very stable shaft

    I have two of these shafts in my drivers. Thank-You Chris and Chris from AeroTech.

    Great shaft. Titanium with Graphite. Very stable with kick and feel. image/fan_1.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':fan_1:' />

    As if Steelfiber shafts didn't already cost enough as is, now they use titanium!

    I remember Honma with Titanium Carbon shafts for woods in the early '90s.



    Harrison did something in the late 90s.



    If they can make them as stable as the Honma shafts at <$55 a shaft they should be good.

    They did a giveaway here on WRX and I was one of the fortunate few to win one. Really, really stable shaft. It needs to be cut about another .5 inch to be perfect for my swing but it has been really impressive in controlling spin and making my shot shape consistent. In a perfect world it would be 10-12 grams lighter for me but it is definitely something I would recommend.

    I have a 70F6 driver shaft. Just curious what others takes were.





    I've not hit many balls outside windy conditions with either. So jury is still out. But in a 8.5 m1440 the driver launched noticeably higher than atmos black 6x. Not sure yet if I would describe it as feeling loose or just smooth. Definitely the

    Quickest launching driver shaft I've hit in a long time.

    just wanted to add that i am gaining a liking to this shaft..... plays really similar to the whiteboard OG.... I ended up tipping my driver shaft a half inch and its really stable yet smooth...



    Have it in an M2 16.5 head too and i really do like it .... nice high launch and soft landings off the deck.. very straight flight with fade if i want and zero lefts ( best part) ...

    I always keep this shaft in my bag, it loves going straight. The TI-Fiber launches a little lower than the Rogue Silver I have in my driver now. With all the rain we have had in Eastern Pa, I prefer the extra hang time. If it ever stops raining here I plan on switching back. I agree with everyone on the Whiteboard feel.

    The Ti-Fiber is firmly in the bag. Dispersion is much improved over the Aldila Rogue(haven't tried new 130 Yet). I absolutely love how I can feel where the club head is during my swing, similarly to how the Black Tie felt. This shaft definitely delivers on distance and launch. My favorite part is that I can give it everything I can throw at it and misses are not exaggerated. (110-155mph for reference).
