I have the Aldila "Serrano" shaft on my PING G15. I'll be honest, I can't tell if I like the shaft. The driver as a whole is really nice, but I don't know if its the driver head that I like or if the shaft is helping. I have also liked every club I have played that had a UST shaft.

Right at this moment have a Grafalloy ProLite 35S, stiff flex which is going worryingly well in a Titleist 983K. Not even an after market but the "for Titleist" version. Scary.
Really, really like the Grafalloy Epic T75S I have in a Titty 983E and love the UST ProForce Gold 65S I've used before.

The Diamana Kai'li that came with My D2. When I was being fitted and hit the Graphite Design DI-6s. It felt a little better but at $500 bucks I couldn't pull the trigger. The good news is that Kai'li works well for me. They say stock shafts aren't as good as aftermarket shafts but, I think Titleist Kai'li comes pretty close.

Stock shaft even from Titleist has different specs from the aftermaket shaft.   I checked this on the Titleist Custom Fitting website, the specs are slighty different.   For example, Aldila VS proto 65 is from Titleist and weight around 67 gram.   The aftermarket version is Aldila VS proto 60 which weights at 62 gram.   The aftermarket version also has a stiffer tip.

Aldila Rip???  Better than the Matrix Ozik?


I do not know if it is better but it feels a little livelier.  The rap sheet on the Xcons is they produce the lowest spin rate for a head.  That is a great reputation. The problem I have is the xcon is in a taylormade head and my RIP is in a Titleist 910 D3 head... so they are not a direct comparison.  Given all that, the 910 with the RIP just feels easier to time and more controllable.  One thing I know is I like both of these shafts and I believe the shaft is the biggest part of a good feeling (and playing) driver.  So I am not saying there is a huge difference, I just like the RIP best.

Matrix XCon-6. Great shaft and I'm loving the trajectory on my 909 D2. Highish launch angle without much spin. Should be even better now that I have the new ProV1x in the bag.

Graphite Design DI-6 is around $300....

$300 sounds a little more reasonable. At the time of my fitting Roger Dunn was asking $499 for the DI-6s. Do you get shaft upgrades for less $$ directly from the club manufacturer when place your order?

Shaft upgrades from manufacturer are not the same with the Aftermarket shaft.   These shaft upgrades have less quality.....

Yeah I saw on ebay, thos Di-6 priced at $300.   You might wanna check ebay...

    • I don't understand how the spectacle has come to an end. He's cutting to get rid of some excessive fat, but wish to retain the strength. If anything, he will go from a little pudgy look to a more defined look. And that doesn't mean he's stopping the training. The spectacle is not that Bryson has gained weight, it's that he's become stronger and is hitting the ball a mile, which he will continue to do. It's quite normal for someone who has gained weight from strength training to accumulate some extra fat and cut at some point to get rid of it.  
    • Day 15.  After work, hit 8- and 6-iron shots for ten minutes (and about as many balls).  Indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls. 
    • I'll keep that in mind, my Snells are also made in Massachusetts. But mine listened to me yesterday, sometimes.  I got fed up with a bad shot and it wasn't listening, so I told it to keep hooking and roll into the rough.  And it did! 
    • Their shipping charges are out of this world...I was going to order a 0211 wedge and shipping was $30.00..After deciding to get a lob wedge to match, the shipping changed tp $60.00 I just refuse to do that.... I can get a real good price on the 0211 driver 
    • Was just reading up on that. It is unsure if the vaccine will give true immunity, as in you can't catch or spread it. There are situations were a vaccine means you just don't get symptoms but can still spread it.
