My R5TP is D-8 at 45". Add two inches of length and it would be around E-10. ;)

His shaft is a VI Proto not VJ Proto. The VJ proto was NV green and designed for his 3wd and 7wd. VI proto is a same color as the VS. This is a fact because I was standing right next to Aldila rep went he built the club and it is list on the Darrell Survey. It is a X flex 80 gram shaft.

This is a fact, i will not say where i took this from (shhh) but this is straight from the VP:

 

 

 

The shaft that VJ is playing is labeled VJ Proto 80-X. It is closely based off the the VS Proto "ByYou" 80-X. The major difference between VJ's shaft and the VS Proto is that the VJ Proto has a higher balance point. The VJ Proto yields a swingweight about 2 points lower at the same length than the VS. Since VJ is using a 47" driver, this helps keep his driver swingweight down without having to make the head unreasonably light which could cause the club to feel overly stiff. Everything else is identical. The flex profile, weight and torque are exactly the same as the VS Proto.

As quoted from Golf World(a part of Golf Digest): "How confident is Vijay Singh in his new Cleveland Hi-Bore driver? The Fijian added two inches of length to a new Harrison shaft (now at 47 inches) at the FBR Open in an effort to pick up a few extra yards."

 

Vijay does not play an Aldila shaft; he plays Harrison. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think HArrison owns Aldila.

;) :idhitit: :crazy: ;)

Golf magazines are great and everything but how do you argue with the VP of PD of Aldila? I also believe there is a picture of him using the VJ proto shaft as well on another site or possibly this one, I can't remember off the top of my head.

Sorry, champ. No that was not where the info came from i had posted something elsewhere and shafted chimed in.

 

 

You are incorrect DK, well sort of, he did originally play a harrison shaft at 47", however, that was scrapped after he inked with ALDILA and switched over to a proto that they made just for him. The harrison didnt not work out so he had no trouble putting in play the VJ 80-x proto. And yes not much of a way to argue with the VP of ALDILA that came up with the shaft specifically for VJ.

I'm assuming we owe golf opinions some credit for this info. I know John aka "shafted" is very active there. If you're going to post info from another site then please give credit to the source.

 

Thx

He doesn't have a harrison in the bag, he has two different ones in his bag at doral. One was an aldila, the other is a bassara! Made by mitsubishi.

 

Both are at 46.5.

 

I got this from VJ's caddie on Wednesday. I will take his word over anyone but the fijian himself!!!!!!!!

 

I watched him all day and he never even touched the aldila, he just kept hitting the bassara!!

Nice to see someone understands how swingweight is determined!

 

Exactly, with an added 2 inches to the driver the swingweight will increase dramatically....does not mean the club is heavy in feel however. In 45" terms it is D4-6 most likely.
