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.

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.

    • It's simple, really, if you want the ball to roll out more, play a less lofted club.  It's not unreasonable to use a 6 or 7 iron, if the greens are slow enough that it works.  On the other hand, if you're getting good results the way you're doing it, not much reason to change. It's good to have more shots in your repertoire, so it might be a good shot to learn, even if you don't use it much.  
    • I don't think my golf budget will allow me to play #2, though 
    • Married for 32 years. But my wife plays Saturday and Sunday too, and ladies night is Wednesday, she sometimes plays 18 before that,  the only time I'm there on my own is Friday. Some guys hate that their wife plays, but I love it.  Did I mention, we spent two weeks in Ireland recently, played 8 rounds of golf.
    • I've seen several videos and read several articles of instructions (and yes, even watched the instruction on the golf channel) for chipping and there is this pretty well known rule of flying the ball about 1/3 and letting it roll the remaining 2/3 (I may have those backwards).  So my question is actually not about that. My question is that for many, many rounds now I cannot seem to get the ball to roll out at all. I have to fly the ball at LEAST 80% and might get 10% roll (leaving 10% putt). Granted, this is with my 55 SW. But even if I play the ball on my back foot, feet very close together, and a good amount of forward shaft lean (and even flopping the ball) the freaking ball doesn't roll. It there a smoking gun for this type of problem? Is my angle at impact or some swing mechanism generating a ton of spin that is causing the ball to stop on a dime? Or fly too high? Alternatively, my approach shots are almost always < 12-inches from my ball mark. This can be a 4-i down to a SW. I typically can't see the ball land because my eyesight isn't stellar, so I don't know if it's hopping forward and spinning back or not. But I'm really thinking not. Not sure if one has to do with the other. Now, the courses I play on are pretty darn soft and slow... so maybe that's just how these types of greens play? You just never see that on the PGA tour. 
    • So, I haven't done any real practice since May and got to the range today.   I've got a new driver last week and wanted to practice with it since I hit it really well this weekend.   I've always been inconsistent with my 3W & 5W and this weekend really got me because they cost me some strokes.  After watching a few videos from Mark Crossfield and the Me and My Golf guys, I've concluded that the way to work on getting consistent contact is to make sure I get my weight forward so as to avoid laying back and topping the ball. In both instances I've found that on the downswing if I focus on getting the instep of my back foot towards the ground rather than turning my leg and getting on my toes (which feels more natural) that I make better contact more consistently. As per @mvmac's advice from a while ago, to avoid hooking the ball, I also focus on feeling as though I'm hitting to the right at impact.   So, in these vidoes I'm doing these three things: Getting weight forward Pushing my instep to the ground Swinging towards the right. I know I cross the line at the top which I didn't realize but any thoughts would be appreciated.
