I've heard a few times that the Max sits a little closed. Hopefully that's not the case. Might have to get a 10.5* and decrease the loft. The G400 Max sat perfect.

The AV Raw line is following the new trend of having the R/S/X flex versions being the cheaper OEM profiles and the TX flex being the aftermarket upcharge shaft. Yes they are "real deal" in the sense that they are the same thing that you can buy from Mitsubishi, but it is largely a repacking/redressing of the old "made for" concept in the sense that the shaft you get stock is not the one that costs $350+.

Huh?? You lost me. 

 

Is are the stock Ping shafts the same "premium" upcharge ones?

In all but very rare instances, you are never getting a "premium" shaft as a stock offering. The AV Raw Orange 55/65 and Rogue White 130 MSI are OEM "stock" offerings that lack the premium materials/tighter specs of their TX/Tour-X counterparts and are completely different profiles. The Rogue White 130MSI for example is a mid soft "Blue" type of profile in the R/S/X flexes, and a completely different low launch profile similar to the Rogue Silver in the "Tour X" flex. As for the Av Raw Orange, the difference between the R/S/X flexes and the upcharge TX flex is the same difference between the Tensei CK shafts that came stock on previous models and the CK Pro shafts that were available as premium upcharge options.
