I like the high kickpoint because it creates a boring trajectory.
I like the color.
I like the dispersion I have with this driver, it's very solid.
I dislike the stiffness on cold or off-days, the stiff feels like an extra stiff.
A solid 4 for me!

This fitting took place just before the release of the NT (Nano-technology) shaft so I cannot compare to either the Comp NT or Evolution.
For me I find this and other Grafalloy shafts easier to load and less boardy than an equivalent Fuji. Hit this further and straighter than the Fuji 757 and Diamana 83.
Still undecided about whether to go for the Blue, Comp NT, Accuflex Evolution or Accuflex VS339. Will be doing some testing over the next few weeks.
For me the most important is launch angle. I have a pretty decent SS at 115 - 121mph but I have very long arms (like a gorilla) that lead to a very high launch angle. Hit a 7* PING with an X Flex Aldila NV at 17 degrees launch and 3500rpm.

Josh, I've got an R flex Blue in a Launcher TI 15 degree FW and I really like it, it does feel pretty light though and I see you've got the 85 G NT in your woods so I would imagine it might not be to your preference. If you want to try a heavier version of the Blue you can find the Blue Tour (73 grams, it's no longer made by Grafalloy) on EBAY brand new for under $30.00. I haven't hit the Blue Tour (nor have I seen any reviews of it) but considering the price it would be a relatively inexpensive experiment.

47 inches is a lil long. i played with a 46 1/2 inch driver and i had to slow down my tempo or i would block my drive.i wouldnt pplay anyhting longer than 45 1/2 inches

I actually didn't even realize it was 47" until I looked at all the info about it. I might cut it down a bit, but I really wnat to try it at this length to see how much distance I gain. I'm a shortknocker (220-250) and I need every advantage I can get. I'm 16 and most 16 year old (most good ones anyway) crush the ball way past me. Even tough I'm in the fairway about 50-60% of the time, I need some more yardage. However, if it doesn't work and I cut it down, will the driver play stiffer? I know butt-trimming doesn't do much, but if I cut off 2-3 inches, do you think it would make a differnece?
Thanks in advance.

swing speed and won't find the sweetspot. Translation= less distance and accuracy.
I have a friend, who is scratch, looking for more distance tried a 46" driver and found he couldn't handle it.
I am 6'3" and went from 46" to 45" in a lower torque, higher frequency stiffer shaft and
increased my ss by 10mph. Longer distance, better trajectory and roll with tighter dispersion. My old shaft (Aldila NV-65 stiff) was frequency tested at 250, my new shaft
Grafalloy Blue Stiff tested at 270+. Much stiffer. My ss is 114-116mph.
If you don't have the swing speed for greater distance, make up for it with better contact with the sweetspot. Most tour players play less than 45" in driver.

I now have it in my Superquad in Stiff, and it's the most consistant driver I've had, you can really attack the ball if you want, the weight of the shaft, feels supreme....
I also have the Blue in Regular in my 3 wood (TM 200 series Tour, 15) and it feels very good, almost half way between reg and stiff....

I think if you were putting the Blue in a bore thru fairway head it may play even better...

Anyone try a Grafalloy Blue in a Cobra L4V?
Looking at trying this combo as I hit my Cobra well, but REALLY high. SS is about 105 / quick tempo and avg distance about 260-270 with NO roll. I will try the Blue in a Reg as I know these shafts play ALOT stiffer than advertised. Tried the Blue in a HiBore XL...loved the tight dispersion and a little lower ball flight, but just curious as to any feedback on a L4V. Currently playing a Patriot Stiff, tipped 0.5 inches @ 45.5 inches but the dispersion is non-existent when I go after it...
