This is all great feedback, I was able to hit the non Tour Spec Atmos Blue and that held pretty stable at the tip as well.  

May try the Kuro Kage.  Unfortuantely, Mizuno does not offer a ton in shaft offerings.  Such a great head though

I will likely have a Hzrdus Red available for sale soon that may fit the profile you are looking for.

Based on my experience with ventus and hzrdus the red isn’t even close. The red is an hzrdus black with a softer tip. The ei profiles of the hzrdus red and black are nowhere near that if the ventus

came across the UST PV 2 Black it looks comparable thoughts?

Pv2 Black is just color version of the ust pv2 shaft. With that said the ventus plays a bit stiffer. Both are great options.

im one who like to tinker and haven’t had an issue spending some cash on aftermaths shafts in the past. For some taking a blind leap on a shaft isn’t feasible. With most shafts one isn’t going to recover the cost of a failed experiment. If money isn’t an issue trying any aftermarket shaft can be fun.  Lots of good options out there like ventus which has lots of your use, accra tz5/6 which is a popular option that txg has been fitting people into, ust has a great lineup in line, attas line and proforce. Graphite design always puts out great stuff.

Back onto the ventus. I know the velocore works as advertised and a great option. Key thing is get the right weight in the right flex

I had been gaming ventus black for a couple of months.   I did not get fitted  but bought into the hype.  I Was coming from a fitted tz5.    At first the ventus seemed great.  I was definitely a bit tighter in dispersion.    For whatever reason though I was losing 10-15 yards,   Finally went on trackman and saw that my spin dropped to below 1800 and my ball was just dropping out of the air.   Since then I have switched to the graphite design xc and it is a dream come true.  Amazing dispersion and my distance is back. 
 

btw this is my first post!  Wrx was getting a bit stale and I thought I would try someplace new.

+1 for the Ventus. It has substantially reduced my left-right dispersion with the driver. It is so stable, but I can still feel the club loading, nothing like the HZRDUS black that I struggled with for a while. I need to save up to get it in my 3w as well...

What made you choose ventus blue over black?

Before the lockdown, I was able to get a few rounds under my belt with a new Ventus Blue and Sim Max head.  Coming from a G400 Max with AD-VR, this thing is a hook machine - but may just be the lower MOI head.  The combo definitely goes though.

 Interesting, I have never hit g400 but I hit flash with vr and I could not figure that shaft out.  Left right left right....

I feel very much the same.  The VR definitely didn't have the feel of the DI for me, and didn't seem particularly biased one way or the other.  Pretty decent results on average, but not on any given shot.

I went through a driver shaft fitting for my birthday last month.  The process was frustrating and tiring in the same right.   The fitter ended up saying the shaft I bought for my G410 was better than anything I tried fitting into.  I bought an Even Flow shaft to replace the normal shaft that came with the club.  Also, the individual told me my swing was off, and that I needed to fix that first.  Great thing to hear during a fitting.  I prefer truth though rather than sugar coating BS.  I went back to the pro I used to in order to have him take a look the day after.  I am 6' 6" and I hit down on the ball quite a bit.  I'm now working to hit up on the ball more.  Kind of wish I would have known that prior to wasting $75 dollars.  At least it feels like I wasted it.

I have not.   I have looked at the ei curve though.  It too seems like it would fit me well.  I tend to gravitate to shafts with softer butt ends and stiffer tips.
