Looking for a low torque Driver Shaft

RJ_MJ_JJRJ_MJ_JJ Members Posts: 5 ✭✭

Hey All - First time, long time!
I have a swing speed of about 115, looking for a low torque driver shaft. Anyone out there have any suggestions? I currently rock a Tensei Blue 70 X in my Cobra F7+. I'm fairly satisfied with it, but every once in a while, I get a bit of a ballooning effect. Obviously, a bit of user error, but if anyone has any shaft suggestions, would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    Torque is more about the feel of the shaft than anything. If you are looking for a lower spin/ lower flighted shaft the Tensei White should bring your ball flight down. I just recently started playing the new Accra TZ5 and it's very low spin with a penetrating flight. They also have the TZ6 which launches slightly higher with a more active tip but it has lower torque which helps it feel a little stouter.

    Matrix black tie M4 70 gram is lower torque 2.8 I believe and the 75 gram is 3.3 torque. Both very low ball flight and spin and a great feeling shaft. Can be had for under $50 and in my opinion there is nothing better out there.

    As above, Tensei White. Or try to find a Diamana whiteboard or D+

    I agree from personal experience; got the Tensei White in my driver.

    Torque is definitely correlate to feel and also, the newer technologically advanced graphite shafts nowadays are using less resin which equates to better feel or “less boardy”.

    Get a tensei blue 70TX and should solve the issue, otherwise lots of options; HZRDUS, Black Tie come to mind

    So for me I have a really high ball flight in general so I purchased a Tensei Pro White TX and a RT Technologies ZEUS X-Flex. Both tipped a inch. After working with both on the range for about a month. I went with the RT Tech shaft. I had less spin and was able to shape the ball better left/right with a fade. The RT tech shafts are actually really affordable and to me is slightly a better shaft overall from my prospective.

    Accra TZ6 is super low torque at all weights in the line minus the super light ones. The TZ5 has a bit more, both feel really good at least to me.

    Thanks everyone for your feedback - I got some testing to do! Lots of Tensei White fans out there, by the way....
    I had a Matrix Red Tie before the Tensei Blue. Gotta say, not a huge fan of Matrix. I snapped two shafts right at the hosel within a year, both on good contact.
    Thanks again guys!

    sounds like an installation problem.

    I agree with this, gotta be install problem. I have played Black Ties for many years, including currently. Have also dabbled with some Red Ties ( don't care for White Ties ), and I have not experienced any shaft failures. You'd really have to be bringing the mustard to snap a Black Tie.

    Fujikura Speeder Evolution 1 757 tour spec did the trick for me when I had the same issue. Much cheaper option than the Mitsubishi except for the Diamana D+ ltd 70 tx which is also probably a good option. Currently trying out the Mitsubishi Tensei CK Pro Orange which is similar to the White but more counterbalanced. Liking this shaft now it keeps the spin and flight down for me. Swing speed for my driver is 118-120.

    • another for Hzrdus Black (or Yellow).

    Bought a Fusion driver in Nov of '16 and played the stock Diamana Red for about 10 months. Toop high launch and too spinny. Changed to the Hzrdus Black in the Fall of '17 and it transformed the club. Mid flight penetrating bullets.

    After much testing it's in the closet in favor of my new Epic Flash Sub Zero but with a Hzrdus YELLOW. Very similar flight to the Black and just slightly stiffer feeling (probably due to the different club head).
