me too. I have played what they made for me, 45- 45.5 mostly until the Xhot. I stuck that stiff v2 in my xhot head and just decided to hit it without butt trimming it an learned something by mistake. I have had that same shaft in other drivers, but it was shorter. I found it too stiff then.I don't think I've had a driver under 45-1/2" for years and most have been 46".
