Does anyone have any experience or impressions of these two high launch driver shafts? After testing I am down to these two and need  tie breaker votes from fellow golfers! Appreciate any advice.

The Tensei Red is meant to really elevate the ball and it does just that. It's a shaft that is still pretty stable for the profile, but the launch and spin are higher than most anything you would hit these days. It's a pretty big departure from what most shafts are focusing on these days. That said, for slower swing speeds who need that spin, it should be a welcome change.

So the Tensei Red that's coming with the new Taylormade M3 is probably a bad fit for a 105 swing speed or could the stiff work? I am a naturally lower ball flight low spin generator. Have turned up my '16 M2 10.5* two clicks to get the right high launch, has a Rogue 60 silver shaft (stiff).

Red is higher launch, higher spin than the rest of the line. It's not really swing speed dependent, more so player need based. In the stock form, you should hit both the X and S, as I'm not really sure how the stock retail compares, nor do I know the tipping on the retail product.

Thanks for the tips, yeah the X versus Stiff may help vary the spin, thanks.
