Who's still gaming old school V steel 3 wood and what shaft?

Thought I'd finally replace it thinking I could get more distance (1 steel shaft, 1 757 x flex). Got an epic flash sub zero with a great shaft and it goes maybe a bit further but the flight is just not consistent/repeatable, I get low, draws, slices, etc.

 

If you finally kicked this out of the bag then what with, and if not what shaft do you have in it?

I still game it. The ONE club that survived my quarantine overhaul.

 

And I still have the original shaft in it, the M.A.S.2.

 

Still my best fairway finder, though my 4 iron is giving it a run for its money.

Original GD YS-6 in my Tour Spoon, the stock MAS REACT for V-Steel thing in the 5 wood. 

 

I had a hard time controlling any 3 wood I played after the 913F (since then I've had an M2, M4 Tour, M3, M5 Rocket) and figured that it came down to the new stuff not spinning as much. Despite the V-Steel having less loft than my M5, the head I think spins more (in addition to the shaft being softer probably - the YS-6 in it has been tipped in such a way that it almost plays softer than the MAS2 - or so it feels), and that actually keeps the ball in play (most of the time) for me. 

 

I'm tempted to acquire another YS-6 and throw it in the 5 wood to satisfy equipment OCD, but I have no reason to change something that's working.

 

Now time to make like Elk and go buy a Sure Out and continue my path down learning to just play the stuff that works and not what looks pretty in the bag or in the signature block.

"Loft for loft, length for length, and shaft for shaft, the ball will go the same distance when hit on the sweet spot regardless how old the iron."

You guys have any issues with the .350" hosel? I know it can be shimmed, but havent used a shimmed club in a long time, esp since adapters have become so popular. 

I've used them in the past a tour issue 13* with a Prolite, and two 15*  - one tour issue that I tried various shafts in (but think it had been hotmelted in a strange place and it never flew right) and one from factory with an S300 lite in it - loved that one. 
 

As usual, severe seller's remorse and been on the lookout for them ever since! 

I've tried most new modern 3wds, but still searching....currently bagging the SIM Ti with the Vsteel sole, but not got the shaft / head combo 'agreeing' yet...

Used my V-Steel T/S 13 for 15+ years with a Purple Ice 85X. The club that finally knocked it out of the bag for good was an M5 Rocket 14 with a Tensei Blue 75X (non pro).

I put an older Project X Black 6.0 in my 3 & 5 V-Steels and I really like that combo. I've decided to go with a Cobra Speedzone 4 wood essentially so I'm not still carrying the V-Steels any more but they are still fun to pull out every so often. I do have a couple .350 raw Matrix Black Ties that I considered putting in them as well but never got around to it and I did find it was slim pickings on the .350 shaft options too.
