So I'm in a search for a driver. My SS is 100-105, and have a Smooth Tempo. Normally my problems with drivers are that I can't create enough back spin, normally high 1K's. I've had a lot of success with the first Ping Rapture in 10.5 with a Red Board 63 in stiff. I played a Speedline with some success last year in 9.5 with Fuji 569, but found the shaft too light, and had a hard time controlling it when I went after it. Those type of combo's worked for me in the respect getting my back spin up. Those produced 13-15* of launch and right at 2300-2500 rpms. I have made some swing changes over the winter and have demoed a 909D2 in 9.5 with a BB regular and 909D2 in 10.5 with BB in stiff and those worked well. Don't have specific launch monitor numbers, but visually looked good.

I normally go after a higher launch to make up for the lower back spin numbers.

I have the chance to buy a 9032ls in 10.5 with a fubuki 63 in stiff. I won't be able to try this combo before i buy it. I'm wondering if this will work for me? I don't know much about this shaft.

Thanks in advance for your inputs!

The fubuki shaft is a HIGH launch shaft with LOW spin. Very good shaft in a lower lofted driver. For example Mickelson used it in his 6* driver if I'm right.

I play a 63S in my driver and have a very similar SS to yours. Mine is also tipped 1/2". On that basis, I think the 63S would be ideal for you in terms of flex - I wouldn't have any worries there.

There are lots of threads on the Fubuki in this forum and a search will throw ups tons of information. I would disagree about it being a high launch shaft however. It's much more mid launch for me with very low spin. Whilst I am curious about other shafts, the Fubuki did a lot for my game and I picked up a lot of distance with it, mostly through so much extra roll. A great shaft.

Thanks for the feedback!

I did search on here for the shaft and found some info. Mainly about the launch characteristics, which seem to be mid/mid-high launch and low spin. A lot of the threads were around when the shaft first came out and people being excited about it. Didn't find anyone that had similar swing characteristics to me, so it was hard to gauge. There was some talk about it getting it as an iMix shaft, but didn't quite find what I was looking for.

My thought is that with the head launching mid-high with higher spin and the shaft launches mid-high with lower spin, then hopefully it all equals out. :beruo:

Do any of you know any similar shafts that play the same? I've mainly played Diamana's lately, both Red and Blue. Messed around with Oban Revenge in my 3 wood and Oban Devotion hybrids and like those setup's.

I find that the Fubuki 63 is a mid/high launch shaft in an FT-iZ.  It launches lower than the stock Aldila Voodoo.  I also see that with the Fubuki, I get more run after the ball lands indicating that it is definitely a lower spinning shaft.
