Hi just looking for some advice with the above shaft.

I have the opportunity to acquire some of the oldschool original UST Proforce V2 uncut.

I currently game a nventix nunchuk at 44" in a G400 LST 8.5 head. Its a rocket, but I fancy trying these as I have a couple LD V2 in some LD clubs and love the feel.

I can get 76g, 86g, 96g in X or 86g in TX

Swing about 127-130mph with the driver, ball speed 185-190. Slightly neg AOA with the course gamer driver.

I was thinking maybe go for the 86g TX ?? Tipped or untipped??

Thanks

The V2 has a 4" pts vs 3" or less that most other OEMs use so expect to tip at least 1" for adjustable tip applications.

In terms of bend profile, the V2 is way softer than the nunchuck which is one of the heaviest/stiffest shafts on the market. The V2 feels stiffer than it plays especially in the 76+ weights due to its extremely low torque. Still one of my favorite shafts and great for anyone that likes a shaft that feels way stiffer than it plays.

Despite the longer pts, the recommended tipping for a (std bore) driver is still 0".  So it's not quite the same as many of the older 4" pts shafts that were designed for bore through heads.

Still one of the best graphite shafts ever made!

It was such a boon in it's day to those of us trying to switch from steel to graphite.

And now they've "re-introduced" it again with some new colors and graphics but it's still the same.

That being said, I agree with Storm as I don't see how your spin numbers won't increase compared to the Nunchuk. As for selecting a shaft, with your advertised numbers, I'd be compelled to try the 86TX and see if you're hoss enough to gain anything from it. It's obviously not gonna cost very much and will scratch your "what if" itch.

I love this shaft in my Titleist 905T and it is a straight bomber! Moved on to 910 d3 with ust v2 shaft 66g stiff and it is still a straight bomber. Has a nice med boring trajectory and the ball just rolls an extra 10-20yds depending on the course condition. I have the expensive diamana ahina and kai li, hazardous red but the v2 just outperform them all.

The original V2's had a 4" parallel tip section.  The V2 Tour MAY have only a 3" tip section; I know that's the case with the rerelease model.  The 4" tip section was designed to go straight in bore-through hosels and play slightly stiffer to flex.  Bore-thrus hosels were more than an inch deeper insertion than today's adjustable tips.  Most believe a shaft tipping of 1/2" is necessary to just make shafts play "true to flex" in today's tips.  

So, if you normally tip a 3" PT shaft 1", then I'd tip the V2 (assuming a 4" PTS) more -- another 1/2", perhaps even another 1", but not more.  Of course, give consideration to the finished length you want as well.  At 45" or more, then tip up to 2".  At less than 45, then I'd tip 1-1/2", again, assuming a 4" PTS.  But, If you use the new V2 Tour it only has a 3" PTS.

Itll be the original v2 not the new one/new tour.

OP we have nearly identical specs in terms of SS and AoA and as a matter of fact I have extensive experience with both the Nunchuk and VS.

Former gamer of 4 years: TM RBZ played at 42" with Nunchuk(Young with a wild swing and this was the only setup that helped me keep it in play consistantly)

Current Gamer: G30 LS Tec 9 degree 44" with 96g TX tour issue V2

In my experience the feel of the two is extremely different. I felt like the Nunchuk actually had some flex while the V2 is like swinging rebar. The nunchuk just wanted to go straight while the V2 allows me to flight and work the ball a bit more. Also, the V2 being so stable has allowed me to eliminate the left side of the course because at 1.6 degree torque this shaft does not let you hit massive hooks.

If you have any specific other questions feel free to ask
