Whats similar to the old Matrix 8M2 Shaft

My2DogsMy2Dogs Members Posts: 896 ✭✭

I know I’m behind but this is the shaft I keep going back to with my 3 woods. Have for years. I’ve tried a lot of shafts for drivers and have the newest model but nothing seems to work for me better than the 8M2. Was hoping to find someone who is knowledgeable and can help me find the newest version of this shaft or other makes/models that are similar but with newer tech. Thanks in advance.

    Isn't matrix LA labs now? I think they make tour stuff cuz most of it is $400+ for a shaft!
    I'm in the black tie 7M3 myself and love it!

    It doesn’t have to be the LA Labs or old Matrix, could be any OEM and shaft. Just looking for some advice from the shaft experts on what is similar but with newer technology. Thanks in advance.

    For what it's worth, my boss still plays this in his 5 wood and kills it. The closest thing to it, with a bit less spin would be something like Tensei Pro White 90.

    Thank you. No wonder I actually hit the WB well. I have it in an older 3 wood and it’s the only other shaft that gives me good numbers.
