If you could only play one shaft in hybrids, from now until the end of time...

What would that shaft be? I'll start, and I don't even have to think about it- Matrix Ozik Altus. The original deep red/ maroon one. I wish they weren't getting so hard to find these days, or I would play it in every hybrid I own.

What say you, what's that hybrid shaft you love the feel, flight, shape, etc. so much that you can't live without it in your go-to club?

(I have ulterior motives asking this- I am in the process of cobbling together a couple of different projects, to fill a specific gap in a new set I built recently. I didn't come across nearly the number of Ozik Altus shafts I normally did in the past on eBay, so I figured now might be as good a time as any to experiment with some new hybrid shafts.)

I've been intrigued by those for a little while now. I am considering the Adams Pro Mini and those came as the stock option, I believe. That's a solid stock shaft, and it seems to make the couple Adams Pro Minis I've seen a pretty good deal in the $50 neighborhood. How do these play? High/ low flight? I've hit the Tour Blue in a driver, it had a nice, smooth feel to it. Could I expect the same in the Tour Green?

Lower launch, not quite as smooth as the blue, but I definitely wouldn’t consider it boardy.
