OK guys I finally got a chance to review one of these. The phenom was created simulatenously as the RIP Beta. In fact the first Green Eye 50Xs on tour were actually Phenom prototypes. The Phenom has the same launch as the beta. A little less spin with the phenom, the feel is much better with the phenom. I was told by a friend that they have “Stiff tip and butt, softer middle section”. He also said these things are extremely popular on tour already, and will be even more popular next year, here is a list of who is playing them already.

I would definitely recommend trying this shaft, even if its next year, these shafts are worth it.
Thenew Aldila RIP Phenom incorporates Aldila’s Tour proven RIP Technologywith aunique composite construction to create a new and innovative shaft flex profilefor maximum distance and control – the Hyperbolic Flex Zon. RIP Technology repositions the materials andpatterns to optimize the performance characteristics of the shaft. The Phenom’s Hyperbolic Flex Zone provides astiff tip section for optimal launch and spin control, with a very firm buttsection for an incredibly stable feel, while the center section of the shaft issofter to provide outstanding kick through impact to maximize ball speed. Through the use of computer modelingtechnology and exclusive carbon fiber materials, Aldila completely turned golfshaft design and performance inside out. RIP Technology provides a shaft design with optimum flex and torquecharacteristics with increased cross-sectional stability throughout the tiparea for greater shot control. Throughthe use of a Hyperbolic Flex Zone, the new RIP Phenom incorporates the sameflex, torque and feel properties that have made the original RIP the leadingshaft on the PGA Tour, with a flex profile to achieve unparalleled performanceand launch characteristics for better players. The RIP Phenom is available in 50 and 70gram weight designs in R, S andX flexes. Suggested retail is $349
