Ft-3 Tour had the highest ballspeeds of any driver for 2006.

Yep for OEM that is. The GEEK failsafe actually tested higher than the FT-3. The DCT was nearly indentical to the FT-3. The BANG storm was also very high in ballspeed.
All of these clubs are excellent however. I believe the FT-3 is the best club callaway has ever made.

That's because your tempo is bad.... if you weren't trying to hit it to Alberta all the time ;)

No, I was trying to hit a draw. Couldn't do it. That shaft left the head way behind, lagging like a sumbizatch. Awful.

I love the NVS tho, which is very strange. Haven't hit the ProtoPype, nor the By you in any capacity, so I can't judge them.

In my opinion, there are plenty of shafts out there that aren't close to the money you'd pay for an NV new.

Hey Lyle are the Geek drivers USGA conforming?

I thought the NV was relatively standard in price and in comparison to the UST and grafalloy offerings?

It's about 20% more. Graf's run around 58 bucks now, V2's about the same. NV's are still ridiculous at 78 dollars. Which makes it unfortunate, as NVS's are also at the high end of that spectrum too.

How about proto by you's at $75 ;)

You can get NV's, brand new on e-bay for less than $40.
Personally, I really like the NV line, especially the 75 and 85 grams versions.
I just pulled my MFS orange out of my 3 wood and replaced it with an NV85 because I wanted to get the ball flight up. The MFS is a super tip stiff low flight shaft. The NV in the 3 wood seems about perfect now.

That's a good price, Lyle.

I'm going by non-Ebay pricing, but if I was to buy one, it would likely be on E-bay.

What about Grafalloy, got any good deals on those? Red ProLaunch please. :)

I can only get dealer pricing on Aldila. Grafalloys reds are dirt cheap already.
