    If you're still lurking out there, I became even more convinced today of how much I like the Speeder 565 in my XR16. The performance of that driver/shaft combo won me some really big money. Took home $3.25 today!! We play for quarters. To win or lose 75 cents is sorta the normal. For someone to walk away with over $3??? It's like highway robbery!!

    I totally agree, shaft shopping is a crap shoot. I've frequency analyzed and profiled over 200 shafts myself, plus using the old Wishon Shaft Profile software, and it's really all over the place. For sure the technology has improved dramatically over the past 10-15 years. RE: the Grafalloy PLB wasn't always my favorite shaft, but it really works well with the new Krank F7 driver (for me). The other things is the lack of an industry standard regarding shaft flexes and "kick points", and whatever other terminology they throw up. I've developed my own standard based on what Wishon started with measuring the frequency at multiple points along the shaft and plotting that on a graph to compare flex points between shafts.

    Instead of trying to deal with all the shafts on the planet, I've kind of gone with trying to pick 1 or 2 manufacturers and just work with what they've got. I personally have had good luck with Matrix and AccuFlex. Both offer a variety of flex and profile options that will fit most any golfer. And I still like some of the older Aldila shafts too, the NV and the Voodoo. And I try to avoid the "latest and greatest" marketing ploy to charge an outrageous price. Wait a year and buy if for half the price when the next new thing is introduced.

    At best it's fun trying to keep up with things, and for sure every golfer will have a unique swing profile where something fits better than something else. And they all have an opinion, mostly based on marketing crap they've heard or seen. Amazing how many of them think when they buy a new (brand name) driver, they are getting the same head and shaft that they see the pros playing on TV.

    I'm still here. There is some useful information on this site. I don't have a problem with humor and I understand there are "inside jokes" on all sites. You guys are just having fun. I've learned one often has to wade through some of these posts just to get to the useful info. My only comment is some of you "would be" comedians should probably keep your day jobs. (Just kidding)

    I just noticed you play Tommy Armour 845s. I had a set of those and sold them to one of my son's friends. I wish I had them back.

    I like them a bunch. I got them pretty cheap from Steve here. However, if I was willing to spend more money on clubs they wouldn't be in the bag.

    If money was no object I'd fly to Wishon's place and get all the club heads and shafts after consulting him personally then fly to Dan's golf shop and get Dan to personally TLT fit me.

    Of the OEM stuff I'd like to try the Cally Apex Pros, Titleist AP2s, Taylormade P750, or maybe the PING i200s.
