I'm sure something like this has been posted before but I wasn't seeing it. So I'm trying to find out what shafts some of the longer hitters on the forum are using I'm talking swing speed of 118 and up. What shaft driver combo finally got your spin numbers down?

    Aldila Synergy Black Tour Proto 70TX. Low spin king. Going to be hard to find but this thing is the best. I have hit all the Tensei Pro’s, T1100, Graphite Design’s, Kuro Kage, etc. Nothing compares. You can stomp on this thing.

    The Callaway Rogue Sub Zero with a Diamana D+ ltd 70 TX-stiff that you built for me and hot melted to D6 was my best combo since my R9 Superdeep way back when. Hit my longest drive ever with the Rogue, 406 yards in the World Golf Scramble in Las Vegas. The F9 with the same shaft I played this season was a spinner. Definitely don't recommend that head. I'm going with either an Epic Flash Sub Zero or Mavrik Sub Zero with the same shaft this season and hoping lightning strikes twice with Callaway.

    I'm at 121-124 and I use the F9 set at 7.5 with a Hzrdus Yellow 6.5 75 grams tipped an inch. Plays perfect for me right around 2000-2100 rpm's and 13-14 launch.

    Tensei White Prototype with the Blue band on it tipped 2 inches X Flex with a Cally XR16 5 degree Long Drive head turned down to 4 degrees with 40 grams of hotmelt in the head. Low spin monster and a wind beater setup that has worked out really well for me. The hotmelt may have taken a mile per hour or two away but I hit it better so it was a worthy sacrifice and if I really want to reach back I can still ramp it up to 124 mph. Finding the right combination of total weight and swingweight really helped me tremendously.
