Hey Everyone,

Last time I got everyone's feedback on their favorite budget bomber and ended up trying out some pretty awesome combos I wouldn't have otherwise. So, today I ask you; what is your favorite budget shaft you've played?

Thanks!

I'm afraid to reveal my favorite "out of date" shaft. The rarity of it makes it hard to find, and may push prices up. PM me to keep my opinion contained.

Another vote for the Grafalloy blue. They've discontinued it AGAIN though. The old ProLaunch Red is awesome if you can find one. When I'm out of blues, it'll be onto the AD GP. Those things are unreal!
