I'm not up to speed on the latest and greatest shafts.... So what are your top shafts for swingers that hit in the 290-330 range?

I know tempo is important but I'd just like to get an idea of what the good shafts are these days to start my search with...

    Ventus Black seems to be the hottest current driver shaft for 115+ swing speed guys. Also worth testing Ventus Blue, as that should be pretty much as stable with a little higher launch. Over the past year or two the Tensei Pro White and Pro Orange received a lot of acclaim, and had plenty of play on tour. To round out, I'd probably recommend testing the Aldila Rogue 130 line, Hzrdus Smoke Green, and the Graphite Design Tour AD GP, BB or M9003.

    Driver: TM M3 9.5*, Graphite Design Tour AD GP-6X
    Fairway Wood/b]: TM M3 15*, Graphite Design Tour AD MT-7X
    Utility: TM UDI 17*, Hzrdus Black 6.5 
    3/4 Iron: Callaway X-Forged UT 21*, Nippon Modus 120X
    5-6: Callaway Apex Pro, Nippon Modus 120X 
    7-8: Callaway Apex Pro Dot, Nippon Modus 120X
    9, PW, GW: Callaway Apex MB, Nippon Modus 120X
    Sand/Lob: TM Hi-Toe 56* and 60*, KBS $-Taper 120
    Putter: Toulon Las Vegas, Stroke Lab 
    Ball: Titleist ProV1, Titleist AVX
