What are the top jdm driver shafts? Mid/high spin and launch?

I like the oban kiysohi purple 65 stiff in my g400, it is really long but I'm missing some left.

I am intrigued by the Quadra fire express, crazy shaft, bangvoo and roddio. I haven't yet read up on the different options of each and what would fit me best. My driver swing speed is 94-100.

Think i want to put it in jbeam zy-11 at 11* or 12*.

Thanks for any help.

I'd recommend the Bangvoo. Although I've never tried the softer flex models(787 was my gamer), I think these are the best
Driver: OnOff Type-S 9* + House of Forged Platinum, 45", MCC Plus 4.
FW: Callaway GBB 3w lofted to 16* + Fire Express 75x, 42", MCC Plus 4 Align.
HY: Onoff Prospec 21* + Roddio i-8, 40", MCC Plus 4.
Irons: OnOff Forged 4i - pw + Accra Tour Ti Mesh, Superstroke.
Wedges: Miura WMF-06 49*/53*/58*, Black Gold x, Superstroke.
Putter: Rife Barbados island.

Quite honestly, I haven't sampled a significant amount of JDM driver shafts, but of all that I have sampled, I have found that the PRGR shafts to be exquisite. I'm a smooth transition, mid release, 105mph swing. I prefer every line of the M43 PRGR line. I'd say it plays a true S+.

FYI, the Oban you have is not a Japanese shaft, it's made by a Filipino dude living in the USA that used to be a sales dude for Graphite Design

Mitsubishi supplies materials to most shaft makers so they use the latest and greatest in their shafts. The Mitsubishi shafts that are made in Japan, these are made with the latest materials and cost more than the cheaper Mitsubishi OEM Shafts.

Diamana BF, Diamana X Series, Fubuki J and V Series, and Kuro Kage XT and XM are examples of these.
