Need shaft suggestions


Mizuno2

Recommended Posts

I just acquired a Mizuno jpx EZ for peanuts. I am looking at replacing the shaft in it. I'm looking for the cheapest possible low launching shaft that's around 70g X flex.

Sheesh. LOTS of low launching shafts... Every maker has them. Man... I've had everything from the old Aldila NV, to the original Grafalloy Blue, to Diamana D+, and even an Excalibur brand shaft. Not sure they would all be classified as low launch these days, but there are literally dozens of shafts out in the low launch category. Fubuki Alpha, Aldila RIP Alpha, Matrix Ozik Black Tie, Xphlexxx Agera, Hzrdus Black, Motore F1, Motore Speeder VC 7.2, etc, etc, etc.

I've seen used Aldila RIP 70x's for $30. A cursory look at Ebay will yield similar results. Other good options are to ask for ex fitting cart shafts which some pros shops throw away (?!) or sometimes, a whole club can be used as a donor for a decent shaft. TM springs to mind in this regard - older TP models can be a bargain with high end shafts intact.

I've been playing the Xcaliber TourXs for a couple years now. I play the heaviest version, in the tour stiff flex. Quite lovely for me. But I had elbow troubles 2 years in a row, so as much as anything this was an effort to reduce some pain. It worked!

Aldila NV are great and cheap.

 

Also grab a prolaunch red

 

... I played golf with John Oldenburg, the guy that designed the NV. He says it is still one of the best shafts ever made and if it fits you wing, there is nothing better. He continues to tweak the NV design for those that didn't fit perfectly into the NV. I loved the VS Proto, then the VooDoo SVS6 and for me the Rogue Black Tour is the best shaft I have played. If the Rogue Silver fits your swing it is certainly worth looking into. That said, if you are looking for a bargain, you just can't do better than the original NV for the price. I have ordered Aldila shafts from Shirtdaddy on Ebay and he is the real deal:

1475798696396.jpgThe Adila NV shaft could be a shaft that you could look in to and I think the price is relatively low right, I'm sure you could find one on eBay for cheap. Good luck in your search.

I totally forgot about that shaft. I used to have a 905T with the NV in it and I loved that shaft. I will definitely look into finding one.

... The first link in my #12 post is for a NV 70x for $53.97 shipped. The second ATX Green is $99.97 but so very cool in a Rogue paint scheme.

Aldila Protopype is cheap and you can prolly find some new ones and pulls out there. That's about as low launching a shaft as it out there.
