TaylorMade adapter pleasePlease briefly explain how you would approach testing this shaft. I would take the shaft to my local range which is equipped with top tracer technology so that I could get some baseline results (launch, height, deviation etc.) for the community. Once my range session is completed then it's off to the course for real world testing. I would compare it against my current gamer, Rogue Black, and see how the two shafts differ. Then the shaft would be used as my gamer for upcoming rounds and range sessions where I would report back on my findings with the shaft.

I would use TrackMan Data vs. other high end mid/low shafts (Pro White, Pro Orange, T1100, Ventus Black, Ventus Blue, etc.) to make statistical comparisons of the shafts based on swing speed, launch, tempo, etc.I would also do on-course testing for dispersion, flight, feel, and overall performance vs. current setup.Link to other shaft review I've done on my own: https://forums.golfwrx.com/discussion/1654824/accra-tour-z-rpg-review-w-pics

I would use both data collected from trackman, and collate it with "real world' experience on the course to see if the numbers match up with how it reacts on the course.

What’s is your current shaft/driver combination? Callaway Rogue SZ with Evenflow Blue 6sWhat is your current handicap? 13.4Where are you located (City, State, Country)? Scottsdale, AZ, USAWhat driver (brand/model/loft) will you be installing this in? Callaway Rogue SZ 9 degree head. And after thorough testing, I'd like to put this into my backup Ping K15 10.5 with TFC 169s as well. It's a fairway finder, but spins a tad too much. Two very different head types, so should be interesting. If selected, do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing / review thread? We ask that you provide hi-res, quality photos, and provide a review of the shaft. Absolutely. Will do a detailed review with several updates and lots of pictures. Desired driver shaft weight and flex. 70sPlease include any tipping instructions and OEM adapter (if applicable). Callaway adapter with no tipping. I want to see the launch characteristics first, and then may have it tipped some. Please briefly explain how you would approach testing this shaft. Great time of year to live in Phoenix, let's go the Rogue with Rogue out on the home course. I know my usual landing spots. Get a feel for dispersion and keep this combo in the fairway. Lots of range time to see if I can hit different shots and change the ball flights. And then finally, we need indoor numbers. Spin, launch, carry. I have access to several local fitting facilities with trackman. Do some direct comparisons to the evenflow. Will change some head settings or weights to optimize the Rogue white. Should be fun.

My local range & Golf Mart has an outdoor launch monitor that I would test at, primarily against my Ventus and the other shaft I still own, Even Flow Blue. I would also test against the other similar stock offerings that Golf Mart has on hand (I think HZRDUS Smoke, Tensei Blue, and maybe others). Finally, I play every weekend so would take the Rogue onto the course to get in-round results.

No tipping needed and need a Ping G400 adapterPlease briefly explain how you would approach testing this shaft. I would approach this a few different ways. 1. I would A/B test the Ping G400 LST with the Ventus Shaft side by side with the Ping G400 LST with the Aldila Rogue shaft. Metrics would include: Distance, Dispersion, Launch Angle, Workability (straight, draw, fade) & overall feel throughout all parts of the swing (backswing/finding the slot, downswing, impact, etc.) Lastly, I would summarize my findings in a holistic review. Really hope I have an opportunity to test this out!

Thanks

First would be a few range sessions to compare both shafts, then I would go to my fitter to compare between both my current shaft and the new shaft to be tested to gather some preliminary statistics on a Launch Monitor with Prov1 balls that I play. Then I would do a side by side on Course comparison at my local golf course testing in outdoor conditions and compared performance between both shaft for at least a few rounds to get a good feel between the two shafts.

What’s is your current shaft/driver combination? Taylormade M3 9.5* with Speeder 757 Stiff Tour Spec at 45"What is your current handicap? 5.8Where are you located (City, State, Country)? Lewisville, TXWhat driver (brand/model/loft) will you be installing this in? Talyormade M3 9.5If selected, do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing / review thread? We ask that you provide hi-res, quality photos, and provide a review of the shaft. YESDesired driver shaft weight and flex. 70 StiffPlease include any tipping instructions and OEM adapter (if applicable). Taylormade tip: Whatever Aldila recommends for driver shaft tipping in an adapterPlease briefly explain how you would approach testing this shaft. I would take it to the range first to get a feel for the shaft. I would keep the settings the same as my Speeder at first. After the range, I would take it to get LM data (CG2 at the moment) and do any sort of tweaking to my loft and weight settings there. I would then try to get as much range and course time as possible to get an even better idea of how the shaft performs compared to my current Speeder.

What’s is your current shaft/driver combination? Callaway Rogue SZ with a Graphite Design AD GP 55 gram stiff shaft.What is your current handicap? 3.7Where are you located (City, State, Country)? Huntsville, ON, CanadaWhat driver (brand/model/loft) will you be installing this in? Callaway Rogue SZ 9 degrees. If selected, do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing / review thread? We ask that you provide hi-res, quality photos, and provide a review of the shaft. Of course. I have experience writing for hunting magazines and a hobby magazine. Desired driver shaft weight and flex. 60 gram, stiff. Please include any tipping instructions and OEM adapter (if applicable). Callaway adapter. No tipping. Please briefly explain how you would approach testing this shaft. From 2015-2018 I used an Aldila silver 110 shaft but the AD GP won out during a driver fitting In 2019. I’m curious to see if the new 130 can beat the GD GP. I’d rent time at a fitting centre in Toronto using a Trackman to get accurate data.

What’s is your current shaft/driver combination? Taylormade M6 10.5 w/ Evenflow White 1100 65 6.5 (just recently received Aldila 2019 Tour Green ATX Graphene)What is your current handicap? +.02Where are you located (City, State, Country)? Philadelphia PAWhat driver (brand/model/loft) will you be installing this in? Taylormade M6 10.5If selected, do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing / review thread? We ask that you provide hi-res, quality photos, and provide a review of the shaft. YesDesired driver shaft weight and flex. 70 XPlease include any tipping instructions and OEM adapter (if applicable). 45.5" playing length - tipped 1" - Taylormade tipPlease briefly explain how you would approach testing this shaft. I would take it out on the range and compare it to both my current gamer along with my Aldila Rogue 125 70 TX. For me, I want to see how the launch angle compares between the shafts, as I tend to fight a lower than ideal launch angle, along with how it will help keep the spin numbers down. I would also be able to get on a launch monitor and compare those numbers.
