Re: ust proforce v2 shafts?

I have the Proforce V2, and it's a really good shaft. My club speed is really low, so I have the most flexible setting. It really is a good shaft.

I have it on my 3 wood and it is a great shaft. The stiff flex i have is just the right weight and creates the perfect trajectory with my 3 wood.

i had one when i played the 975j. Very solid shaft and i believe they have a shaft selection that adheres to every swing speed and tempo in the spectrum.

I think they are the best shaft for the money. They are not "game improvement" at all, but I don't want my shaft trying to make up for anything in my swing. They are low torque and tight dispersion for a fair price.

It is a good shaft if you are a "hitter" and/or have a fast transition. It is a tip stiff shaft so there is no half way swing with these babies, its full on or nothing.

I had them in my 3 metal and resuce club but pulled them b/c I'm a swinger and got tired of going at it all the way. For me is was good for distance, but b/c I had to go at it hard the accuracy took a beating.

Re: ust proforce v2 shafts?

When I started playing again last year after a 5 year lay-off I updated my woods....went with my first 460cc driver and the V2 High Launch shaft.

I went with this shaft because I felt I needed some trajectory help.

I'm a tall golfer and I mistakingly ordered the shaft overly long...should have left it normal as the club was overlength in it's stock form.

The tip was a bit whippy and shot dispersion was predictably erratic.

I would have been way better served had I gone with the normal V2 shaft, standard length, stiff flex. I've hit this combination since and loved it.

You can jump on it and not get ballooning shots. It is a super shaft. It will suite a wide range of players. For example....one of my normal playing partners (6hcp) has a Callaway driver with the V2 stiff flex. He hits a nice drive (250yd ave with a baby fade). Another guy he plays a lot with (3hcp) games a Titleist driver with a heavy xtra stiff shaft. He hits his fairly high, too, with tons of carry (275 yd ave with nice draw).

The 3hcp borrowed the 6cp's V2 shafted driver the other day after skying his extra stiff Titleist....maybe 270yds. He nailed the V2 and easy 20 yards further but it was on a lower, boring trajectory that optimized both carry and roll out. I was expecting him to sky the heck out of it.

The V2 shaft is really something special....in my limited experience with it.

Yes, Adam Scott and Davis Love III are such "hitters" with fast transitions.

It's a stiffer tipped shaft, yes. I disagree on the "hitter/transition" stuff.

Great shaft, I'm looking to get a driver with one.

My regular flex Nike Sumo I can normally poke it 220-230 at the range. A 907 D2 with this shaft I was flying it over the fence at 240 which is 40 feet high (I worked there so I know).

My apology for the poor wording. The V2 suites hitters or those with a fast transition better b/c of the stiff tip for we am's. I can hit the shaft, I just don't like to work that hard.

DL III is 6'3", AS is 6'0", due to their height they can generate high club head speeds. Most pro's head club speed is greater than 110 mph so that will over power most shafts. At that speed, and higher it doesn't matter if they are "hitters"; (also you are talking about pro's, I was talking about we am's). So they get X stiff and or a heavier shaft that are high kicking shafts to keep up with their swing speed. With club head speeds in excess of 110 they need a X stiff shaft and the stiff tip adds to the back bone of the V2. This is probably why the V2 is such a popular shaft on tour. But I think you already know this.
