Help with choosing a shaft

Callaway FT-3 Tour
I have a Callaway FT-3 Tour 8.5* with a stiff grafalloy blue shaft. I was looking at getting the AXIS or the VS but I will have to try them out first. I am looking for a somewhat heavy shaft that will give me a low-mid, boring trajectory. If you guys have any suggestions it would help a lot.

Thanks,
Kyle

If you're willing to try something else, try the Fujikura ZCom BW65, that is a stable and excellent choice on shafts.

Don't forget that the VS proto is inbetween the NVS and NV interms of tip stiffness. I don't know if it'll be giving you the mid boring flight you want, especially if you've tried the NV and it's still too high.

 

Axis sounds like a good choice, as well as the 1027 proto you can find from grafalloy tour concept dealers, or the TourX. PM702's another choice from Graphite Design. If you pick any of these shafts though you'd better load the club pretty heavily because they're pretty stiff overall.

How heavy?

 

 

 

We offer that affect you are looking for in a 95 gram option called the Icon Heavyweight, and a 80 gram shaft called the ICON.

 

 

 

Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

 

 

 

Best of luck with your search.

i had the pm702 in my ft3 and it was a great combo but i'd suggest not tipping it 1st and see how it performs for you...the 702 is a beefy shaft so be a little careful

Try to explain it to us first on how are you hitting your existing set up before we can start throwing any suggestion. Even better if you can get a launch monitor numbers, so we could have a better idea what is problem. If you are complaining that you are hitting to high, how high is high here...you and me could have a different views on this issue. Launch monitor at least will give us some guidance.

 

Also try to give us a bit about your swing character... feel and shaft weight preference might even comes handy too.

 

Basically try to elaborate as much as possible to make us understand exactly what you really looking for. I'm sure you get a better help or at least better suggestion if you can provide all of the numbers.

 

Good Luck!
