Looking to experiment with a new driver and decided on the standard epic 9* head. The goal for the change is to build something a little easier to turn over. I play a draw with every club in the bag but can't hit one with my current driver (ping i20 8.5 Diamana ahina 70x tipped 1") attached some recent trackman numbers if that helps at all

Long story short if anyone can recommend some shafts that would pair well with the epic to try to reach my goal I'd appreciate it. Thanks

I think the obvious route to go is to move from the Diamana White line (Ahina) to the blue line.

The blue is always a little easier to turn over and I am loving the Kaili in my Epic SZ. Just look at the specs on the various generations carefully to choose the one that fits closest to the weight and torque profile that you think will suit you best.

Your path is fine, you just aren't getting the face closed. Rule of thumb is that a softer tip will allow that to happen easier. I typically just adjust my grip to close the face a bit. Especially if the ball is positioned much further forward in the stance than the other clubs. Keep in mind, changing the shaft may make it more difficult to go the other way.
