Ventus Red FTW!  It’s the perfect combination of fee and stability.  Especially when you tip it an inch or more.

This voting poll has me really confused and quite frankly makes no sense.  First, how in the world can you pick a "best" shaft.  I know you can say the same thing about best driver, fairway wood, hybrid, wedge, etc but shafts have SO many more variables to them than club heads.  If you're trying to pick a best shaft for the largest bell curve of the golfing population then a shaft with a "Blueboard" type profile (Stiff butt, soft middle, stiff tip) would be the winner but there are dozens of shafts that share this type of profile.  

 

Also, tons of the shafts on this list aren't even manufactured anymore so we are obviously not voting on the best shaft that was actually released in 2021 so that doesn't make much sense either.  We're not voting on best driver and throwing up candidates like the Cleveland Launcher Comp or the Titleist 905R or even the Taylormade 360.  Who in the world is going to vote for an Accuflex Evolution shaft that came out in 2006 or a Grafalloy Pro Custom that has been out for decades?

 

We all know that the the Fujikura Ventus something (more than likely Blue because it has a bend profile that fits the larger bell curve of people) is going to "win" this but the Ventus line came out in what, 2019 so it's already 2+ years old as well.

 

I honestly can't vote on anything because I've had many different shafts perform "best" in different club heads throughout the year.  What worked in one driver could be pretty terrible in another.  Anyways, I just don't get it.

Played the LAGP Trono 75x in a epic max ls and tipped it an inch, once I got the feel for it it was a weapon. Currently playing the HZRDUS Smoke Green PVD, has less spin than Trono and is the sexiest shaft on the market! However that Speeder TR may be the best out there in my eyes, just need to get my hands on it!
