Annika Sorenstam Driver Shaft ?

Question for Champx2
Does anyone knows what shaft and model Annika Sorenstam was playing in her FT-3 at the LPGA Championship this past weekend?



She seems to be hitting if further since she switched from the Fujikura SIX.



Thanks.

    I'm not 100% sure also, I was told by a few its an Axiv but when I enlarged a getty image a couple hundred times it doesn't look like exactly like any Axiv on the market. This one has different text and a slightly different color orange/red



    I swear by Axiv by far the best shaft I have ever touched or seen good players react to. No Fuji or GD has given me substantial distance gains like Axiv.

    That shaft she is using is the Aldila NVS Fusion shaft which should be the stock shaft for the retail FT-3 when it is released July 4. The same shaft is being used in Callaway's upcoming Fusion Fairway Woods that are not yet available in the US but currently on Callaway's UK website. You could check out the specs there.

    Tourspec has them for $299



    We are in the process of opening up with Accra in the very near future and will hopefully have access to Mamiya as well.

    Ok guys,



    Dont buy it through the catalog if your a forum junkie, That is for people who dont browse the forums.



    All prices for the posters are much lower, and I will beat ANY price thats legit. Diamana J-spec, Axiv, even NSpro 1150 and 750's shaft only shipped!



    So here it is 255.00 Shipped for TSG and WRX members



    I have three brand new Axiv 6064M shafts ready to ship today. Tommorow they will be up on ebay!



    I was told the name Axiv is registered by another company in the U.S, ACCRA isnt legally allowed to sell them until they change the name or shaft graphics.

    I saw a blown up picture on another golf forum that clearly shows SIX on the shaft. I'm guessing it's a SIX shaft in new graphics that Callaway might have conjured up for their retail FT-3 drivers that will be released next month.

    Just got a notice from Fujikura. It is indeed a SIX in Anika's driver. It also stated she averaged over 300 yards in driving distance. image/bb.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    yeah, i hate the taylormade tp graphics on their shafts. The only thing about the cally ones is that they kinda copied the axiv image/blink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':busted_cop:' />

    Anybody know how Annika's driver shaft is tipped? She plays an S flex in the Fuji SIX...
