I got fit for the 757 version, x flex and was wondering what reviews you guys may have since these shafts are new to me.

I've heard they have a bit more substantial materials, (should be for the price I paid) with a stable tip for dispersion and low spin.

Any reviews would be great since I haven't been able to find any, even using the search feature.

Once I get mine, I'll put my observations here too.

Thanks

I just got one in X but it was tipped 1/2" I was told. I have the white 757X and the 757evoTS (v1) also in X in my other drivers and they work great. The evo2 seems the most tip stiff. I have a harder time getting the right launch even in a 10.5* head. I'll have to retry with an untipped version. Or maybe even a tipped stiff.

Here were my fitting numbers, however it was with my m1, not the callaway as its listed - he didn't swap out the title:

I didn't think it was hard to launch, more so the incredibly firm tip was epic for killing spin.

Oh I have the 757 evo2 (orange shaft) not the evo2 665 that comes with the Cally dbd 816. I've hit that it and the 757evo2 is much much stiffer. Not sure what comes in the m1. The 665 is not even close to being the same shaft as the 757.

The shaft u have is the one I was fitted for. Real deal, 757 evolution II...it's not a stock shaft for either oem. I got fit at Club champion - so I* bought the shaft separate as a build.

my 757 evo II is scheduled for delivery tomorrow --

bump just in case anyone might have a review; it doesn't HAVE to be a driver shaft -- i know the Callaway XR16 clubs can come with these shafts -- any review would be helpful at this point.

Any updates? I'm seriously considering getting a 661X for my Vapor Speed TW...the Blueboard gets a little spinny on me sometimes.

Can anyone offer a feel comparison to the white Speeders? I had a 757X in a previous driver, and currently a 757X in my 3 wood. Absolutely love the feel of the shaft, I just think it will perform too similarly to the Blueboard in my driver currently.

I had a couple of these in previous fairway woods and am about to install one in my driver, the Evo II is tighter/more stable than the original evo or the white 757. It is also smoother and lower launching. Really a great shaft.

I was fitted for the 757x. I tried the 661 but it was too light. Still a great shaft. Just feels a bit light.

Iíve had the Speeder Evo II in 757s Driver, 661s Driver, and the same for my 3 metal.  All great shafts that work great for the proper swing speeds and swings. For my 106-108mph Driver SS the 661s sends the ball on a mid mid high traj and always surprised by how smooth they feel.

The 757s was just a bit too much for me to load smoothly. Someone with a 110+ mph SS would prolly load and crush this shaft.

All in all really happy with these and they look stunning!
