What driver shaft are you playing?

Recommended Posts

Currently,  I have a Fujikura Pro 2.0 6S in my PXG Gen 2X driver.

Once I get my swing more consistent, I am thinking of trying some different ones.

I currently have a Tensei Orange CK in 3-wood and a Tensei Blue in my 3 hybrid. I am considering finding a used Tensei White.

Also, the Ventus Red seems go to with my driver speed which is generally in the 95-99 mph range.

Which driver shaft do you currently play and what is it about it that you like?

I am currently using a Fujikura Ventus Blue 5S (non-Velocore) for my Taylormade 300 Mini.  I also have a Fujikura Ventus Blue Velocore 6S shaft for the 300 Mini.  I am getting familiar with the driver and seeing which shaft works the best for me.

Kiyoshi black 65-X. Had this driver nearly 5 years, most consistent driver I've ever had while still being long. I can hit a controlled shot or a high bomb if needed, and it doesn't normally want to go left on me.

Tensei 1k.  It's giving the best ball speed out of all the modern driver shafts I have been testing which translates into 10 to 15 more yards off the tee.  On the flip side, when I mis hit my driver, it comes off as a low spin hook that falls out of the sky.  I'm going to give it some time to work out the kinks but if this keeps up, I may have to move onto something else.

Playing a UST Attas Elements Prototype DK (dynamic Kick) 7X. Pretty sure this became the wind shaft Taylormade Sim Max head.

 

Shaft has a very pronounced Pop at Impact which I love in all my clubs. So smooth and stable. I had a tenancy to hit the ball super high. This shaft just flattens everything out for me. 

 

Elements Chrome 7F5 , also a favourite.

Gravitate always towards low/low shafts (by the standar in their prime, maybe not current low/low)

SIM2 Max with a CK Orange 60S. I tried a Helium 5F4 and the Kuro Kage silver 60S but the Orange is just superior in feel, distance, and dispersion.

like the profile so far but it is new. Always wanted some exotic shafts but finding a competent clubmaker is difficult around here

Just hit 7+ new driver shafts last week. Had best results with Ventus Velocore Blue but they were not much more noticeable than my OG Ahina. Certainly not $300 noticeable!

Playing Ventus Black 6x in my TSi3 and it’s unreal how good it’s been for me. 
 

Driving was never a strength for me. I’ve always hit it long, but could spray it a bit. Not with this one. This is the most consistent I’ve ever been off the tee over the course of a season.
