As I get older, my swing speed gets slower as you would expect.  Sometime ago I dropped down to 95 gm. steel shafts.  Then I went to 95 gm graphite shafts in the form of the Recoil 95 F4.  These seemed stiffer than the steel.  So I put them on my frequency analyzer and sure enough.  Does anyone have experience with the recoil 95 F4?  And would I be better off with maybe the Recoil 780 F4?

The 95 is a proto shaft that is a stiffer profile  for an aggressive golfer.

The 780 is a much softer profile. it may be stiff but the profile is very good.

... There are 2 versions of the Recoil 95. One is the non prototype and more popular not only in use but also availability. I do not find the 95 F4's stiffer than steel shafts of comparable profiles, in fact I find them very "friendly" and easy to load with great feel. I also have a set of 95 Prototypes in F3 and with their stiffer tip I find them very similar to the standard 95 F4's even though they are a flex softer. These shafts are excellent at dispersion and trajectory control. Of course you are correct that the 780's are a softer profile and help generate more speed and a higher trajectory. 

... In general I would say the 95's are a great steel replacement shaft if you are looking for similar performance with dampening for your joints. The 780's are a good option if you are looking for a different performance than steel, lighter for more club head speed and more torque for better feel as well as a higher trajectory.

He nailed it. The non proto play pretty standard to flex and steel counter parts. I have the 110s and they are similar to steel.

The prototype play stiffer and have a profile setup that allows for them to be swapped for steel without impacting swingweight. Most tend to go a flex softer in the proto or soft step them
