Aldila Shafts

4 posts / 896 viewsLast Reply

Hello, I am currently hitting an old Cleveland launcher that has a cut down green aldila nv 65 stiff shaft in it. I have hit this driver/shaft combo better than any other I’ve tried. I am wanting to upgrade to a Cobra F8 tour length driver and I am wondering what newer aldila shaft would work best for me based off the shaft in my current driver. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

Welcome to The Sand Trap. If you like the NV series, I would stick with that. I would also keep the same weight. Aldila has a bunch of shaft, but they are all slightly different. The NV series has a certain feel and is low to mid launch. If you like it, I would stay with it. They are still available.

Aldila has updated the NV in a couple versions recently utilizing some of the new materials that are available. If you like the old green NV I would look at the 2KVX NV. I have seen some measurements and the quality of these shafts looks outstanding especially for a shaft under $150.

I have the Orange 2KVX NV Stiff flex in my driver and I like it. My swing speed when I was fit for it was right around 100. Now I'm up a bit closer to 105-110 and it still feels fine.

I was a lower hitter with driver previously, and the higher launching shaft and a higher loft on the driver has helped me get the ball in the air more. 

I will probably retest on a launch monitor this year, but I think I might be getting a bit too high and too much spin now that I am hitting more up on the ball so I might need to switch to the Green model which is marketed as lower launch and lower spin.
