    I am wondering if you will see many of the gamma green shafts on tour? Tour guys "typically" stay away from flashy bright colors in favor of less distracting or neutral colors.

    hahaha honestly...even if i haven't OWNED it...i definitely have hit most/all.

    i think the paint job won't be any less distracting than say the diamana BF, T1100, UST Chrome/Gold/Etc...

    the ion/pvd finish has been out for some time. only shaft i can remember being tough to look at from above was the new version V2 with the extremely bright yellow

    I feel like I've seen this purple/green PVD/IP finish before, but before Project X was a shaft brand and when it was True Temper. Might have been part of the Tour Concept line. Can't remember. This looks richer, but bringing back memories...

    I agree that tour guys might opt for the black version. I agree with above, not that different from the BF/DF that changes colors as it goes from handle to tip.

    **** it. This shaft is probably far from a good fit for me. But, it is absolutely stunning in the gamma finish. We won't have access to it in these parts. Sometimes it stinks to not be in a golf heavy area.

    Reading that article scared me at first.... but, I remember feeling the same exact way when I read the literature on the T1100. I thought, "shoot, way to beefy for me." Plays a 1/2 stiffer, ultra low/low, etc. Even being a guy who constantly fits into low/low, I thought it was gonna be too much.
    A few weeks later, I was at my club doing a Trackman driver shaft shootout with the Tensei White, KK, KKDC and one other (can't recall). Our assistant pro (who swings about 120-5 vs my 110) was helping me look at numbers and as a JOKE, I hit his Ping G-something with a T1100 65 X. As the trackman beeped, we got reallllllll quiet. Dead straight, more optimal in terms of spin/launch. It wasn't even close.....He was like "um, buddy, that's your shaft right there." It was hands down the winner and was no different when put in my driver head.
    So, I went from "no way I can game this shaft" after reading about it to playing it for 3-odd years. I'm a low/low guy but I'm no bodybuilder, I assure you that.....
    So, reading THIS article was a bit deja vu for me and I hope it's the same with the HULK! For those that think this is a telephone pole, you might find that it is.....but you might find that it isn't as I did....

    A new shaft with a traditional balance point?! This one doesn't fit me, but that is fantastic.

    I don't have time to chase driver head weights with all these high balance shafts. If anything, clubheads have been getting lighter.

    watching right now. It looked like a bright green shaft. It was fast so I freely admit I could be wrong but, it was not the Tensei blue he was using.

    He was a T1100 guy, so he wanted to test out Smoke Green. Hit it 6 times on the range (186 Ballspeed) 5 straight lasers and one slight cut and put the head cover on it.

    Ugh that looks sooo sickkkk into a matte black head like that.

    When anybody hits it, let me know how it feels. I don't have monstrous speed but I'm basically always looking for the stiffest thing I can get that still feels relatively "nice" (smooth). I'm slowly switching from a heavy draw to more of a mild push fade and I just can't play that shot with tip soft shafts or shafts that feel like they load massive amounts. I'm going to be trying the regular Smoke shaft in a little bit, which I hear is stiffer than the Black but also smoother, too. I had no issues with Black but it just didn't feel that nice, and my ballspeed's were down a bit using it.

    Best shaft that let me swing 100% and I knew wouldn't draw on me was a Tensei Pro Blue 60TX tipped an inch. I know not the stiffest tip stock, but when it was tipped there was only a very small kick and it was stifffff. Accra Zx465 gave me superior distance and ball speed but I was a little erratic with it. Probably me more than shaft.
