I saw that and that's what got the wheels spinning. Just would have to put up with the razzing about the PINK shaft as I don't wear or own anything else in that shade of colorby choice.

110 mph driver swing speed. Carry my 3w about 230s. Hit it off the tee in the 250s, even into the 260s.
I play the ball right to left naturally. I have NO issue drawing the ball with these shafts, but I can also hit a high fade. I don't have a very hard release, really swing with the body. Wouldn't say i've ever fought a hook with any of my clubs with NVS shafts.

How did those of you that play them in FWYS tip them?
For fairways Aldila says tip 1" and then install, honestly with the NVS I think it should be at least 1.25" unless you really struggle to get the ball airborne. My fitter found a lot of the NVS(and some of the lighter NV's like the 55 and 65 gram versions) play somewhat soft to flex
My NVS 85 is tipped 1.5" as I wanted a slightly lower flight with the 4 wood, when I get my 75 gram I'm debating between 1.25" and 1.5" and am leaning towards 1.25" as its going in a 13* three wood

1.5" tip for the hybrid
1.25" for the 3 & 5 wood
As you can see, I play a stiff shaft TIPPED in my driver. I have a 105-110mph swing speed. So I can play X stiff if I want, but i've been leaning towards slightly softer shafts. The X flex NVS does NOT feel nor play like an X stiff. Its got a lively feel. I feel like I can swing them and still pound them high and long. I don't feel like I need to rip at it to get the shaft to kick.
