Anyone know of a similar shaft to the Fujikura Speeder Evolution I Tour Spec? I used to use it in the x flex and really liked this shaft when I had it so just wondering what else is out there similar to it? Only thing that I don't like about it is all the graphics and since they wrap around the shaft there is no way to get them all not showing.

    Atmos Blue TS maybe probably be similar. I tried the Evo 757 tour spec in an x and really liked the feel. That whip crack feeling that people talk about with the Fujis is really something else. I went to the Atmos Black which had a similar feel imo, but the black lowered my launch quite a bit.

    The Speeder EVO I Tour Spec was labeled as a mid bend point, mid launch shaft so you would probably find similar feel in performance in the above mentioned Atmos Blue Tour Spec as well as the EVO III and anything else they make labeled as "M" for bend point and launch. Golfdealsandsteals on eBay as brand new Evolution I Tour Spec X shafts listed right now for pretty cheap to so you can always pick up another one. Why fix what wasn't broke, eh?

    The evo V is what replaces the evo I. The TS typically just means slightly more stout for the same profile. That being said I play all 3. I have the original speeder evo in an M6, I have the speeder V in a F9, an play an 869 TS in my hybrid. I agree the atmos TS blue is similar but I find it not to be not as stable, definitely more kick in the mid section

    According to their site the 757 tx has a high bend point and low spin and launch. The torque is quite low at 2.6 compared to the Atmos TS blue and black. Seems like to me looking at the specs the black would be more similar but still not as stable.

    Would the pro 2.0 tour spec be a close option?

    Thoughts on the Diamana™ D+PLUS Limited Edition 70 tx being close? Looks like the most similar shaft I've found to the speeder I had. Similar weight, torque, high kick point, and low launch and spin. Anyone have thoughts on this shaft? Easy for me to get a hold of this one and also put the 80 tx in my new TS3 3 wood.

    Not sure those profiles are at all the same.

    Anyone able to compare the Fujikura Atmos Black TX 80 vs the Diamana™ D+PLUS Limited Edition 80 tx. Looking to order the TS3 with one of these shafts in it.
