Cleveland Launcher Comp 10.5* (now with Alidila NV but I'm not sure if it suits, I still seem to balloon drives!)
Callaway Big Bertha Fairway 3 & 5 Woods
Cleveland Halo 22*

Currently my bag is empty. I cleaned everything and WD-40'd my irons.

At season's end, it had the following:

Launcher 400 with Graffaloy Blue S
Mizuno MP-001 3W with Aldila NV 75 S
Cobra SS 5W
Macgregor VIP 1025M with DG S300 4 thru PW
Cleveland 588 RTG 51, 56, 60
Cameron Newport Mil-Spec

The only things in there that were there in April were the wedges, I'm not sure what will be in there next April either. Am pretty sure the 5W will be gone in favor of either a Sonartec MD 19 degree transition, or a Nickent 3DX 17 degree ironwood.

Did you have the stock stiff Fujikara shaff in this beforehand ? If so, do you now notice a difference, and if so, what, exactly. Been tempted to change the shaft in mine, although some would say I'd be mad - my driving is pretty damn good ! Just curious, and this particular shaft would be my choice if I were to change...

Well... sorta...

The 400 I have, I hoed on ebay with the Blue already in it. I hit 3 tee shots with a friends 400 with Blue and knew it was a solid combo, so I had to have one.

Anyways, I had the Launcher 330 2 years ago with the stock gold fuji. As far as older generation OEM stock shafts go, this one was passable but not memorable. The blue just feels solid, it plays very stiff... MUCH stiffer than your stock fuji (higher kickpoint, lower ball flight, etc.) Some guys I know don't like that, they prefer the NV or the prolaunch.

I have the NV in my 3W and that is a solid shaft too, it plays a little softer than the Blue. I like the softer feel in the 3W... what can I say, I'm picky.

I had the Fuji Gold in my 10.5 Launcher 460 for awhile. It stunk, imho. Sky high and distance was a lottery (so was my swing at the time, though).

I switched to a Blue Stiff...too much for me, switched to the NV stiff and it was perfect, but swapped down to a 9.5 and now everything is wonderful. Just right.

Andy, the stock Fuji stiff in the Clevelands is between a reg and stiff, and is cut to 45". It works just fine for me, again, with a swing speed in the 95 mph range. The Graffaloy Blue shafts tend toward a stiffer feel. Try a bunch before you make a decision to switch.

FWIW, I have a Penley Stealth 70 reg in my 975D, which is cut to 44". It's the bees knees. The shorter shaft and through-the head mounting stiffen the regular just enough for my swing. Again, all individual. If I really go after a drive with that setup, however, it's duck city.

Cheers guys :)

I got my stiff stock shaft tested on a frequency machine thingy & it came out as being 'Xtra shift' ! Strange, innit ?!! I play off two & hit the ball a pretty far distance, but I would prefer to get a slightly more controlled / piercing trajectory, espcially as I play my golf on a very windy Links course. I love my driver to bits, although you're sometimes almost as better off buying a new driver equiped with shaft of choice, as opposed to splashing out a load on a new shaft. Hmmm, tough call. I'm at a stage of life where I have to start taking more care of my money, so not sure what to do.....:(

I ain't a fan of that shaft, tbh. Quite like it in fairway metals in 75 G weighted shafts, but the NV 55 & 65 I just find too whippy 'n soft. They're supposed to be a stiff tip, eh !? I don't see that in them myself, at all.....

I agree 100% about the softness. I still like it though.

I have it in 75 in my 3W.
