Aldila NVS vs Grafalloy Pro Launch


yoo868

Recommended Posts

Anyone experience these two shafts to give me a comparision of the two? I am looking at the stiff mid-60 gram versions of the two. I have used a 10.5 Cleveland COMP w/ the Aldila NVS 65S. I loved the feel and flight but seemed to lose about ~10-20 yds distance due to the lack of roll vs my old TM 580XD 9.5 stock stiff. In comparision the Comp flew alot higher than the TM & carried further but just seemed to stop w/ no roll.

 

I was thinking about going to a 9.5 COMP w/ the same Aldila NVS but then the ProLaunch entered into the equation somehow... Any thoughts?? My SS is ~100

 

Thanks for any help you can provide.

ProLaunch 65S; flex point low, torque 2.8, D4

No direct experience with the NVS, but I had an NV 65S in a 905T 9.5o, and couldn't get the thing to launch consistently.

 

Changed to a Ping G2 10o with Pro Launch 65R. Now I can tee it lower and get a far higher trajectory. It really feels like I'm loading the shaft properly as opposed to not at all.

 

and the thing is. when I tested the shafts, they were both playing pretty similarly. The NV was more to the Reg and the Pro Launch was more Stiff.

 

Go figure. Hope this helped and didn't confuse

Both shafts are high launch, but there are some differences. Of course milage can vary but the Prolaunch gave me a higher trajectory. The NVS hit on a mid-high trajectory. In fairway woods, both do an exceptional job of getting the ball off of the deck. However, they do it differently. The Prolaunch has a lower kickpoint and stiffer tip. The NVS has a higher kickpoint but a softer tip. This is why in the 65 gram shaft, some find that the Prolaunch has a tighter dispersion. The Prolaunch 65 and 75 play very similarly but the NVS 65 and 75 play much differently. They have different torque ratings. I use the NVS 75 in all of my drivers but the NVS 65 is too weak.

Haven't played the Pl but had the NVS 65 stiff in my Cally 454 last year. When I'm swinging well it's the longest driver I've ever played. The shaft feels smooth and has a nice kick. However, even the slightest miscue and I'm paying a severe price, especially if I was a little late on the downswing. Way, way, WAY right and no coming back. Want to try an Accra Tour shaft this year: much lower torque and supposedly more stable.

I had the NVS 65S in my Cleveland 460. I traded this club for my FT-3 with the PLB. IMO the PL is a much more stable shaft. I could overpower the NVS quite easily and that was even in a stiff (96-100 SS). With the FT-3 my best results were with a 65R PLB at the demo day when I hit it first. I really can't hook the PL like I could the NVS. I think the NVS is a good shaft, I think the Pro Launch is a little better for my clubhead & my swing. Nice high power fades all day. My average drive is 250-260 with my FT-3 / PLB, very controlled & good feeling shaft. Liked it so much I threw one in my 3W. Highly recommend.
