Mid to High launch low spinning shafts

Any suggestions on mid to high launch driver shafts that have low spin? I currently have an UST Axivcore Tour Green shaft, mid launch low spinning shaft, feels ok. How do the Fubuki shafts and the PX Tour Issue shafts compare?

Don't know much about the Fubuki or PX shafts; I'm a Matrix and Aldila fan. For a higher launch and low spin, I like the Aldila NVS. You can pick them up pretty cheap at the Aldila closeout store (link below)

A little pricey, but for me the best mid launch low low spin shaft would be the Oban Kiyoshi

I have had the PX, Fubuki, and Axivcore Red in my drivers and hit one but could not tell a significant difference in the red and green. The Fubuki was slightly higher but with a lot more spin for me. But felt very smooth, even smoother than the UST. The PX gave me a very low shot with very almost no spin. It hit the ground and ran for ever. The carry sucked but overall distance was further than the Fubuki.

 

I ended up with the older UST Proforce V2. This produced a mid flight low spin shot. Yes, it felt "boardy" compared to the Red, Green and Fubuki, the PX also felt boardy compared to them, but the carry and roll was much better with it so I quickly forgot what the others felt like.

 

Waste not and want not, I found a home for those other shafts. The real club makers may have a stroke when they hear the sacrilege I have done, and they may label me a heretic, but I cut these up and put them in Hybrids.

 

I have the PX in a 14* hybrid, this club recently replaced my 3 wood because I get more overall distance with it. With this head on it I still get the lower ball flight like the driver, but with more spin so it does not roll forever, not something you want when going to the green.

 

The Fubuki has found a home in an 18* hybrid. This produces a nice high shot that goes about 220 (in the winter) and checks up nicely.

 

And the Axiv Red has ended up in a 24* hybrid. This club is my go to club a lot. I can hit it anywhere from 150 to 195. Any time I have a long approach and not hitting the ball too well, I pull this one out, On other days I use the required iron but on bad one, it is great. I have also been using it to chip. Basically, putting from off the green with a hybrid.

 

Hopes this helps. Also the Proforce V2 is really cheap now, because it is an older design.

The Fubuki will launch higher with more spin and feel smoother

The PX will launcher lower with less spin and feel much tighter.

 

In the range of the Green there's the DI's and Kiyoshi's both of which are great shafts. After that, you're going to have to start adding some spin to get the launch up any higher. Kusala Blue/White/Silver would be my next place to look in order to get the launch further up while trying not to add to much spin.

I laught at your claims to fight a zombie apocalypse when most of you can't stand up to a Spider

I agree on the NVS. I have the 85x in one of my hybrids and love it. The RIP beta is not a bad choice either.
