Fond memories of the old "Purple Ice". Purple and lime green, or yellow/orange, lime/orange??

Edited to note I am sounding like me son with the bright colors...

If you consider that the majority of players using these shafts will probably be pro players and heavy hitters then any colors recommended would be bright and loud!

However consider that too bright might be distracting. The DI 6 (orange and white); it looks dated now and always looked like an orange candy cane. Come on

So I would suggest a solid color motif with probably some silk screening of lettering or designation in the same color albeit it will a lighter shade.
a nice red candy apple or ferrari red would be rocking...but hey this is jut my two cents...

cheers mate

I would personally love to see a GD wood shaft with the classic silver/gunmetal look of the Diamana's or Fuji Tour Plat.....much like the GD-UT hybrid shaft.  There is just something to be said for a "metal" looking driver shaft IMO.  

It is nice that most Graphite Design shafts are so recognizable on TV and on the range, like the DI/YSQ/etc., but I agree with the previous post that some of these shafts look a bit much for the average player, or even the modest tour player (i.e. Adam Scott going with white and black in the driver).

The YS series and Pershing series had the best paint schemes for the traditional player....while still being highly recognizable for GD.

Gulfstream white shaft with cabin interior-esque Mahogany font letters. Maybe trimmed in gold. Or Mahogany lettering for 95 and Birds-eye maple look for 105.

I'm also a fan of white and pink/purple.  Gotta stand out somehow on the course!  Matte black would also be pretty good looking.  Though you can do much better than the RIP.
I mean, I like golf balls
but not that much.

AD DI color scheme, but in reverse, orange at top and white at bottom, stays true to the brand, but offers a slight twist.
