Won a new shaft; hoping to find the specs!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I won a new shaft through a raflle this past weekend. It is a UST Mamiya VTS Tour SPX X flex shaft, apparently it is the same exact shaft that brendt snedeker used at his win at pebble beach. I was wondering if anyone knew the specs of the driver? I've looked on their website and all over google, so i was hoping someone in here had an inside scoop on some of the specs. Im looking for the launch and the spin on it. Thanks everyone!

Did you win a complete driver, or just the shaft?

It was just the shaft, but I have an old 910 head that I am going to throw it into so it worked out perfectly!

Shaft specifications include flex, torque, kick point, and length. Those are the specs that you should be able to find for your shaft and compare to shafts with which you're personally familiar.

There are some knowledgeable club fitters and builders on here that may be able to provide some insight to the general characteristics of your particular shaft, but launch angle and spin are specs that are going to be dependent on the entire, completed club and the person swinging it.......

Sounds like a good shaft.  This might help: http://www.ustmamiya.com/tourspx/customers/

Harmonious- I registered for an account already and tried to look at that but for some reason I couldn't get in to see the specs, but thanks for looking at that!

What I am really looking for is if the launch and spin off the shaft low to mid or mid to high, on all the shaft websites they say if it the shaft is meant to lower the launch and spin and etc. That is what I'm really looking for, my shaft that I have now is mid to high launch and low to mid spin. That is the ideal shaft specs for me, so I am just hoping that this shaft is close to that!

From the UST website, the TourSPX is not a unique shaft.  It is supposedly a certified shaft for the PGA Tour, whatever that means. The specs for your shaft should closely match those listed for the VTS shafts.  Does your shaft list the weight?  If so, just check out the UST site for the specs.

Okay, thank you! I think I have it figured out now, thank you for your help!  What do you think the big differences are in the "tour pro shaft" vs the regular proforce VTS that is on their website?

My guess, and it's only a guess, is that your shaft was hand-pulled from the VTS production line and measured to ensure it met the posted specs.  In other words, if the listed torque for your shaft is 2.8°, your shaft is exactly that, not 2.7° or 2.9°. If it is supposed to weigh 67 grams, it weighs exactly 67 grams. 

 

As much as manufacturers want all their equipment to exactly match their specs, each shaft is a little bit different.  It appears that your shaft has been certified by the manufacturer to exactly match the specs.

 

The VTS shaft retails for $150 at Golfsmith, so you've got a good one.
