The original graffalloy blue was a board. I couldn't get that shaft to load at all.

I never hit them but back in the day I used to make clubs for a Long Drive guy, used to mess with Penley and Harrison 4 and 5 X flex shafts..Put them in Bang heads.

As an aside, the longest shaft I have ever worked with is 8' (FEET!!) Back when Apollo shafts were made in England. Had a few specially made for a trick shot guy. That was fun.

Back when I was competing in LD was an Accuflex Assassin XXX, on a  Bang 5.5* head, best combo I have ever used.

1st shaft that comes to mind is a Penley Platinum XX that came in a Biggest Big Bertha proto 6 deg. Head.. i won this on a bet from... I think it was Bob Gilder and a callaway rep at the BC Open in like 2000.. Iactually gamed that for quite a while.

More recently i hit some guys 4 deg. Krank with a HOF Platinum in XXX... even at 48" it was tight.. it actually was insanely accurate too.. couldnt really get the launch up but i was one hopping the range with bullets...
