Grafalloy ProLaunch blue

I was thinking of putting a Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue 65 into my 17 M1 driver. I currently have a made for Fujikura Pro XLR8 56 shaft. Would the Prolaunch give me a better ball flight? Are these shafts similar? @Adam C

Not sure what better ball flight means? Are you wanting change in launch height, direction? If I am comparing these two shafts on paper, I would say that they would launch at similar height. The Fuji is 10 grams lighter which could mean more height out of it vs. the Grafalloy though. Grafalloy probably plays a little stiffer also both because of weight and design. Might mean the Grafalloy won't help close the face up as much and could result in losing the ball right. Of course these are all on paper, what a shaft should do and what it does can be complete opposite depending on the hands swinging it.

@Adam C thank you for the response. My normal ball flight with the fujikura is mid launch fade. I was seeing if the ProLaunch would increase the height and straighten out the fade a bit.  

I had the stock kuro cage in my m1 but didn’t particularly care for the ball trajectory or feel. 

I have been a bit erratic with my driver and was just curious if a new shaft would do anything.

Both should launch about the same but the weight and the overall stiffness in the Grafalloy should promote lower more right flight if we compare them. Again, this is only theory because how your body reacts to the shaft could cause a different result from what "should" happen.

If you are looking for more height, you are always better off lofting up the head. Loft change is a guarantee of launch change, shaft profile will be small if any.

    • I looked it up. Sounds interesting.

    • Day 54: Set up a chipping/pitching area in my basement because we are having a F-ing Nor’Easter! Worked off a mat and off my putting mat which is a tighter lie.   I also think I’ve solved the temperature issue with club assembly. My basement is 55F,  so I set up a lamp to get the temp around 80 where the club heads are. I used my BBQ thermometer to measure the temp. I am such an enginerd! I had to re-epoxy my Titleist heads because they were starting to get loose.
    • HRV points toward recovery more than sleep from what I have seen. My sleep is always high but my recovery may or may not be. 101, nice! I was talking to a friend of mine and his is always high. He showed me a screenshot from yesterday and it was 115.  I made it a point to look at my strain this morning when I woke up but before I got moving around much. It was 0.0 as well so I believe you’re correct on hitting the heart rate threshold. I have just never looked at it that quickly. 
    • If you are 'old' you will surely be familiar with the pre 2019 definition of 'Lost Ball'. The new version says  Lost/1 – Ball May Not Be Declared Lost A player may not make a ball lost by a declaration. A ball is lost only when it has not been found within three minutes after the player or his or her caddie or partner begins to search for it. For example, a player searches for his or her ball for two minutes, declares it lost and walks back to play another ball. Before the player puts another ball in play, the original ball is found within the three-minute search time. Since the player may not declare his or her ball lost, the original ball remains in play.
