Ive been so happy with the Ventus line, I didn’t need to see this. 

 

Ventus is only as good as the last shaft it beats.  The king must always be challenged and let me say the Proto 2.0 is a serious contender.  They aren't cheap but neither is the Ventus.

I’ve switched from the original TPW in my 3 wood to the 2.0 85TX and I love it. Enough so that I as well am strongly considering getting the 65TX to try out in my SIM2 whenever it shows up and see if it knocks out the VB.

 

At least in the 3 wood the 2.0 actually feels smoother to me than the PW, tad lower flight as well it seems.

biggest difference is it’s a little lower in spin and a bit more fade bias/anti hook. You can go hard left and it doesn’t want to go left

Played yesterday

 

The Mitsu Tensei AV Raw white 2.0 Proto was lights out.  I hit some absolute bombs with it that and most impressive was the roll i got after the ball landed.  We might have a real contender on our hands.  😎

This shaft really is different, I ordered the 2.0 65TX as a no-upcharge shaft option with my TSi3 head and this thing launches bullets that run for days.  I've always played low/low shafts and nothing has come close to this, I've never seen rollout like this combo produces.  Agree with the anti-left assessment, I can really try to turn one over and have never yet lost one hard left.

Yeah it's amazing isn't it.  I'm actually thinking of going up in loft which could produce some absolute BOMBS.  I'm really surprised people haven't discussed this more.

Funny, I've thought the same thing... "If I could just get this thing launching a bit more, it would go forever".  At first I was a bit off-putt by the low launch but as I've adjusted a bit, it's really awoken a monster.  Still could get it launching a bit higher more consistently for max distance, so lofting up is definitely a consideration.

why is that good?

I don't want a left miss so when I say "go hard left" i'm referring to the swing.

you guys talking about the 1K white?

 

 

 

Talking about the Tensei AV Raw white 65TX 2.0 Proto. 

 

I played today and the proto didn't do well.  Notice I said the proto didn't do well as it's never my fault and always a misbehaving club 🤣  Today was it's first round with cash on the line (when it matters) so my swing is a little different due to more pressure.  Anyway I hit some bombs but also missed some when I didn't go at the ball.  A little concerned as I don't like to go all out for every drive.  Playing again Sunday so we shall see.

Sounds like....good for good it’s longer then the Ventus black....maybe a little less carry and quite I bit more rollout?? Hence the desire for a little more loft?

Just got in a 65tx 2.0 proto and it’s too stout for my 111-113 swing speed. Ain’t no left in it though. 

 

 

Yeah I played today and it's a stout club no doubt.  If you don't go hard it's gonna be a problem.

I'm the same speed and it's definitely the stoutest shaft I've ever gamed.  Lofting up has made it a bit more playable, but smoothing one out there isn't really an option with this setup.

 

I have a 65tx raw blue on deck (I know drastically different) that is going to get a shot next.

Ive come to the same conclusion. It’s not for the faint of heart.

I noticed a while back that you wanted to test the epic speed triple diamond....I never saw you mention it again and then saw it on bst so i assume it didn't impress you....Any findings? I did some horse trading and ended up with a TD LS and don't know if i want to sell it with the wrapper and stickers still in tact or unwrap it and give it a go.

I finished testing several weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to put the test up. I’m currently traveling but plan on doing a rundown soon.  
 

TD LS is a good head, fade bias, high launching, and responsible spin. Question is does that meet your needs.
