The S400 is NOT a manufactured shaft, it's sorted out of the S300 production run from shafts that are too heavy to meet the S300 spec. S200 shafts are the same thing on the lower end of the weight scale - shafts that do not make the S300 spec on the low side become S200s.
Since they are not a manufactured shaft but are binned out of S300 production runs, I doubt very much ANY OEM uses them as their stock shaft in any set. Availability will be based on how tight the manufacturing spec for the S300 production run stays and not an actual production run of S400 shafts.
This information comes direct from True Temper while there on a factory tour several years ago.

regarding S300 versus S400, etc...
from TT FAQ:
Sub-flex is the relative stiffness of a shaft measured to a finer degree within a flex category. That is why you'll see flex designations like R200, R300, R400, etc. Weight is the major difference -- 200 is lighter, 400 is heavier. R300, S300, X100 are the standard flexes. About 3 grams is the actual weight difference. For example an R200 may play a little more flexible than the R300 and the R400 may play a little stiffer than the R300 only because of the weight.
