Keen to get my hands on some decent driver shafts. Nothing on the local buy and sell sites. eBay still a bit over priced.
Looking for low Launch, low/mid spin stiff shafts.

Cheers

Are you asking what shaft to buy or where?

Diamana Blueboard sounds like a winner for you.

As for where, Golfworks or Ebay.

Or if anyone here has anything they want to offload.
I'll look into that shaft though.

One of the best shafts ever.

What are you trying to accomplish?

Wanting to try a true low launch shaft out to see if it can flatten my ball flight somewhat.

How high do you hit it? How far are you hitting it and finally why shaft are you using now?

Around 260-275yds, generally a high fade, not much roll out because of it.
Currently using my Rapture V2 with a proforce gold 75g.
Was one of very few options down my way when I reshafted myself.

What loft?

The Proforce is a low launching shaft if my memory serves. It's like a V2 but with more feel.

10.5 loft.
Yeah I think I looked into the shaft being a low launch but hasn't popped up in any top searches for a low spin shaft so was looking for a proven one to try.
I'll keep my eye out for a cheap BB here and on eBay. Usually the shipping on eBay is what keeps me from buying on there.

I saw an original flower band diamana whiteboard 72 gram stiff flex on the bay this morning for a good price. It is a very smooth shaft also.

If you want low launch you need the whiteboard not the blue. The blue is mid launch.
I've hit both and found them to be very close in launch and feel. I think the blue feels better and flattened my flight.

Probably because it's a very old shaft. It's low launch though.
