I have one in a Bridgestone J33 8.5 loft driver. It weighed 71 grams in its untipped uncut length. It had a torque rating in the middle 2's if I remember right.
The ball will roll out big time when its dry. It has a very flat flight, and it is the most anti left shaft I have ever hit. I have a few other Bridgestones, and have had Fuji Vista's, Fuji 757, Aldila NV 75,85,95, Penley ETA, UST Axicore Black, and Green.

It is a great shaft, and I admit I paid 190 bucks for mine.

About a year ago though, when voodoo's were still hot shafts for sale.

So, even though XPP6 is supposed to be a Voodoo version of the ProtoPype, the specs are different.  Lower torque and heavier.  
I'd say I'm a low/mid ball highter.  My numbers with my 9015D 10.5 / VS Proto 70X are avg : 11* launch / 2600 rpm / 168 mph.
I would stick it in my 9064LS 9.5 bent 1* open that I launch a little higher (12*) with a Accra XC65 bun want to tighten the dispersion.  My misses are usually left...

Great strong driver shaft. As described above it is lower flat ball flight, low spin. Possibly the lowest launch/spin shaft made by Aldila. They list the ProtoPype as the lowest but they exclude the tour issue VooDoo Pype which should be lower launch and spin than the regular old Pype. I played the XPP8 in my 3 wood for a year or so. Very good, low spin. It was easy to dial in on the flag but the ball flight was too low to carry most front bunkers so I opted for a higher launching shaft. In a driver it should be a fairway finding machine! Angel Cabrera and Jesper both played a Pype VooDoo at one point in time. I'm not possitive but I think G-Mac tinkered with it too before switching to the RIP in his fairway wood (as has Angel, who still plays the Pype 80x in his driver!)

    If you swing hard and miss, it hurts a bit.

So, what's the main difference between the standard Pype and the Voodoo Pype?  Lower launch/spin on the voodoo?  I've got 2 70x and 1 80x Pype.  All in drivers and they're awesome.  I'm looking at the XPP7 and XPP8 and am curious how the two (standard vs. voodoo) actually differ.  Any info would be appreciated!

I was told the only difference is the S-core tehcnology.  Same specs and profile.
Haven't had the chance to put my XPP6 in my 9064ls yet.  Hope it won't be too low launching and spinning for me.  I'm thinking since it's in the 60g range it should be OK.  I usually like shafts in the mid-high 70's.
If it doesn't work, I could always try to find a cheap SFTP 2.0 10.5* head later down the summer and stick it in.

Thanks!  I appreciate the info.  Now the inner Ho in me wants to know if I "need" another Pype.  By the way, depending on the loft of your 9064, that XPP6 should be great!  I've got an 80x in my 5.5* LD and it's crazy good- maybe too good as I flat spotted the face after under 20 hits on a brand new head!

I have the XPP6 in my 8.5* 9015d.  It is outstanding! it does launch lower than other setups I have but not a lot of spin.  I played it for 3 years and then "upgraded" to the 9064 (9.5*) which currently has a PX 7A3 in it.  I am now back to the 9015d as I like the open face and the overall feel of it much better.
