Hey guys, I was going to see if you had any suggestions for me on hybrid shafts to try. I seem to be an odd player. Iím a plus handicap mainly due to hitting fairways and getting up and down. Irons and hybrids are my weak spot. I have tried everything over the years and nothing seems to work for me. My current hybrid is a 816 H2 with Rip Alpha 85X in it. I play the Rip in my driver as well and Rogue Black in my 3w. I am struggling to find a hybrid shaft that can do what I want. Right now I hit my hybrid about 240 carry. Itís weird though because I launch it high, but it doesnít have much spin on it. I had a AD DI in it for a while and it launched high and spun too much. Driving irons tend to not launch high enough for me. I am looking for a shaft that will be a low-mid launch but mid spin. Any suggestions as to what that would be?

For me, I have had much greater success with the hybrid after going with 100+ gram shafts. I play a 2 and 3 915H. In the 2 I play a Diamana white and in the 3 an Aldila black tour Issue 105. If I were you, I would check out the Aldila tour green ATX hybrid. It can be purchased for $50.00 shipped. I think it fits in the window you are looking for.

For me, my hybrid does just that, mid/low launch & mid spin, just the way I like it.
I have had this type of flight with two different heads & shafts & would game both these shafts again, Ptoforce V2 Hybrid tour shaft & the Fubuki AX 400h, currently playing the Fubuki in an Alpha 815 Hybrid. This is a rocket launcher that is as long as most of my buddies drivers.

Same thing here with the same shaft in my 3 hybrid. I definitely like 100g for a hybrid weight and the Rogue Black is definitely a mid/mid type of shaft.

Tensei ck pro blue tx flex. Maybe the pro white, but it's low spin whereas the blue is more mid spin.
