Bought this shaft on a "spur of the moment" ebay purchase and installed it in my old TaylorMade V-Steel 3 wood (X Flex). I have to say I was extremely impressed. I was surprised at how straight and piercing my shots were. I didn't expect much from this shaft, but now I'm having a hard time justifying why I shouldn't put the V-Steel/BiMatrix combo back in the bag as my "gamer".

Took a 9.5 R510 TP W/ NVS 75 x flex and switched it out for bimatrix proto 80 x flex. Ball flight is now a little lower, it now rolls out about 20 yards more and i'm playing more second shots from the fairway.I found it used in pink and the fellas give me a hard time about my extra stiff pink shaft but there usualy well behind "pinkys" drives. At 109 MPH this shaft rock!

bought this shaft a year ago for a sonartec ss-07 3 wood in X flex....

Shaft is pretty accurate, although it will feel softer than whatever flex you play...
It still plays very near a x-stiff flex when look at in CPMs
It feels a little whippier at the bottom tho because of the heavy steel tip

Added a few swingweights to my club because of the shaft design with the heavy steel tip..
Good shaft if you like a "softer feel" in your shaft, and if you want the ball to get up in the air a little more..

Also, I saw a slightly reduced spin rate from this shaft

Overall, not my cup o' tea...I like stiffer feeling shafts

Although its not my feel, performace is still impressive!

ok here goes.... I on a whim went ebay cabin crazy this winter and bought a demo MX500 9.5 driver for 89 bucks and a pink stiff bimatrix proto for 49 greenbacks,  stripped all the paint off the head, pulled the shaft repainted the head in mizuno bluerage metalic , FLOed and Spined the shaft, then slapped em all together with a pink golf pride multi grip with 2 extra wraps and didnt cut down the shaft... played 18 holes today 16 mph wind... holy #%$#^$@ is this thing straight... and LONG...I am not so sure im going to cut it down. I used it on 12 holes and never missed a fairway... Im just so dang impressed!!!  it is a softer feeling shaft but its so long, a smooth swing just hucks the sphere out there every time.  Gps says 263-302 into and with the wind 275-288 across it. very impressive for me and i just love the feel of this setup, I have not been able to kick my 440sz/nvprototype setup to the curb but this may just do it.... mmmmmmm im in loveI cant wait to get on a monitor and see what the spin is because I could not believe how it just ignored the wind. TOO COOL

is this the same bimatrix that david toms used in his 5 wood? I have a bimatrix sitting in the closet but I'm not sure it its the same or not. Did they make an earlier model?

I agree wholeheartedly with that...oh and a brass shim unit is all that is needed to go into larger bore. mine is  working out great. just never tip trim this shaft , it will wreck the qualities of the shaft.

I have been thinking about giving one of these a try, would you say it is a "Big Hitter" only shaft?  I'm not a big hitter, I do like high launch in my driver and I do like a bit of additional weight in my driver shaft.  Would be interested in any thoughts from some who have played it.

not at all; I am, however, a somewhat big hitter but when my friends swing this shaft they fall in love and go get one... The added swingweight and heavier tip weight give u greater control and power... Might just make u a big hitter...:yes:

I know these shafts aren't supposed to be tipped. Does this mean there's no way to stiffen the shaft?

I currently have one in the stiff FW model and it just isn't stiff enough. Is there any way to stiffen it?

Mine is now in a mx 560 and still love it.  I also put a reg flex in a 10deg cobra sz440 head for fun... it balloons for me but at a more moderate swingspeed it still goes quite well.
