it's all perspective. I don't find any low launch shafts these days play all that boardy. Remember the Speeder 757, Grafalloy Blue and etc? I played AXE shafts for a few years too and those were simil

I was on a similar quest and loved the Evenflow Black and have found nothing better for me.

Another vote for evenflow black...also the atmos black is very smooth feeling

If you want Mid/Low spin that is closer to low but still a loadable 'blue' profile:

ATMOS Blue

KBS TD line is as smooth as I’ve swung.  My driver hovers just above 115 on most swings.

You're looking for tip stiff with a higher torque rating. Low torque is what makes graphite shaft feel "boardy". Look for a tip-stiff shaft in X with 3.8° to 4.5° torque. Doesn't matter what brand.

I have all 3 of these shafts in different clubs.  Just picked up an RDX Blue USA LE to try in driver but I haven't hit yet, so I can't give any feedback.  I hope it plays similar to these, especially the Tour 65.  Of the three listed above, the CK Pro is my least favorite, but it's not bad.

Modern low launch shafts to me don't feel boardy. Even the Hzrdus Black which is supposed to be incredibly ummm "stable" doesn't feel boardy at all to me. 

 

Buy a Graf Blue and install it in your driver, use it for 3 weeks, than use literally any shaft on the market and it will feel like a knife through butter

Do you like the feel of your current shaft, but your trajectory is too high? If able, reduce the loft of the head.
