ProLaunch Red is a stiff tip version of ProLaunch Blue. Think ProLite with Micro-mesh technology. The Blue is not tip stiff, it's butt stiff. For golfers with a slower tempo it only feels tip stiff becuase they aren't getting past the butt stiffness.

That might explain why it seems like my driver balloons a little...I used to play a Prolite and now play a Blue, thinking it was basically a Prolite. Granted, the 905S has a significant thru-bore, so that might help. I loaded the crap out of the Prolite 35 stiff in my 975D/J. Was the Blue the wrong choice all this time? :idhitit:

 

What happens if the club is too tip stiff?

 

Also, Grafalloy says the ProLaunch has a weaker tip than the Blue, thus making the ProLaunch Red closer to a Blue...

Grafalloy's site shows ProLaunch as a low kick shaft and Blue as a mid kick shaft. ProLaunch Red is said to be a high kick point shaft like ProLite. Blue is a good shaft for quick tempo players, slower or average tempo players would see a lower ball blight because of the butt stiffness.

Hmm, I suppose the red shaft looks better Aldila NV Shaft, since it sounds like the same thing, right?

I always though NV = Blue and NVS = ProLaunch

 

NV is Aldila's ProLite 35 and UST ProForce

NVS is Aldila's ProLaunch

 

ProLaunch Red = ProLite 35 on steroids

But isn't the Blue supposed to be the new ProLite 35?

So basically it's like NV with higher launch?

 

More like ProLite/NV with better feel.

Blue is nothing like ProLite. It's butt stiff and medium tip stiff. Prolite is medium butt stiff and tip stiff. Blue was the first shaft to be designed specifically for larger heads (micro-mesh tip technology). Then came Aldila's Micro laminate and UST's Proforce tip technolgy.

Shouldn't larger heads require a stiffer tip?

I could see the Blue being on the way out. I think the shaft feels horrible and I know some previous versions of the shaft felt like a fence post in stiff flex. It is definately the least sold shaft in our store.

If the stiff is too stiff, then go with regular. 2.8* torque doesn't mean nothing :yahoo:
