Got my hands on 3 new UST  VTS shafts(Tour SPX) and I must say these shafts are truly the most solid and well engineered shafts I've hit in a long time. Using my Titleist 910 D3 these shafts gave me at least 10 more yards (315) tried the 8x models with varying torques and I must say they were all solid.

I'm not sure, I think they are still testing the different models.

Ya I saw that one, think I'm going to pass on that one. Really interested to hear how this shaft stacks up against the Tour Green. Which I really like.

Is this a continuation of the pro force series? Pro force gold, pro force v2, and now this?

That would be cool.

"Proforce" is more or less the flagship of the UST Mamiya range.
The Proforce brand includes popular models from the Proforce AXIVCore Series, Proforce V2 Series, and Proforce Classic Series. Each series has its own unique technologies and are designed to fit a variety of swing profiles and golfers of all abilities. (shameless pull from UST webpage :rolleyes: )

Hit pretty much all the tour and retail line of the V2 and couldn't find one I like.  (with that being said, I have a 100gm hybrid V2 waiting to get installed, lol).  I certainly hope the dispersion is much better with the VTS.  

God Bless

The dispersion patterns with the new VTS was very tight compared to some of their earlier models...I've hit the diamana family for years and I must say these shafts performed  Better "For Me" ..I really liked how these felt and performed

UST shared with me some of the thinking behind the VTS line of shafts and what kind of process they've been using to create a "matrix" of shaft profiles that conceivably will be able to fit just about any golfer:

Quote

As  for the shafts, yes we are currently developing the  VTS for tour  and  have placed some prototypes on tour for testing  purposes.  We are  in the  final stages of development for that product  and should have  quantities  soon.  The VTS stands for Velocity,Torque  and Speed.  The  VTS was  developed after two years of testing with an  outside agency  who  specialize in biomechanics.  We were able to isolate  every spec of  the  shaft and determine what truly moves the needle in  shaft specs.   We  found that torque has been overlooked for years and is  a major   contributor to reducing dispersion and increasing ball speed.   The   industry has down played torque for years because they didn't   understand  it, nor spend the time to realize what it brought to the   table.  The  industry put torque in a box and said if you're a high   swing speed guy  you need low torque, that is absolutely fales!!!  We   have found that  torque is a custom fit item and each player requires   different torque  regardless of their skill levels.  Ironically the long   drive shafts are  predominately in the 4.5 range, so that blows that   whole theory about  high speed low torque.  I have attached a quick   overview of the VTS.



The  reason good players have stayed away from high torque is because   most  high torque shafts have been combined with very weak butt, mid and   tip  flexes, so the whole shaft was weak.  We have designed XX shafts   for  tour with 4.5 torque and guys love them.  The torque make up in  the  VTS  goes from 2.5, 3.5 to 4.5 in a TX, X, SX, S, R.  basically a  40  shaft  matrix that can fit any player in the world!



As  for the Tour SPX that is our tour program that we will now offer to   the  general public.  USTM has always sorted our shafts for the tour,   V2,  Axiv Core, Attas, Attas t2 etc.  The USMT shaft you bought in the   shop  was never the same caliber shaft as the one used on tour.  The   tour  shafts are measured for 36 different specs and each tour shaft   must meet  a nominal spec or it doesn't go on tour, much tighter specs.    The tour  shafts have a small laser etch about 10" up from the tip   which has  number such as "TOURSPX12345".  The specs are loaded into a   data base  and then we can use them to reference a players specs when he   needs a  backup or to also reference if changes in his setup are   required.  It  helps us keep track of exactly what a player has in his   bag.  This will  now be offered to selected Custom dealers who can also   use the TourSPX  to fit their players as well.

I just got fit for a Wishon 919THI Driver.  My clubmaker is putting  a VTS Tour SPX in it.  He says that he just got them in this week.  It is spendy, though.  The shaft was $330.

An amazing shaft. Simply smooth feel, powerful kick with a very tight dispersion.
