Looking at the new RBZ tour head and the TP HD6 shaft.  Is this shaft the real deal or made-for?  Really have a bias against made for shafts.  Thanks.

If it is a TP shaft, it is real. If it is the "stock" HD6, which is non-TP, it is a made-for. I am not sure if the RBZ painted shafts have the TP logo on them yet as I haven't seen an RBZ TP in person yet. The RBZ Tour is not a TP club.

Also, the made-for might even fit you better unless you are a very strong player.

There is no "made for" HD6, only the stock TP option (yes it is real). The only "made for" shafts this year are the RIP Phenom (stock in the non-TP R11S) & XCon 5/6 (stock in non-TP RBZ/Tour).

Thanks guys.  I was looking at the HD6 TP shaft and the XCON6 taylormade painted shaft.  Sounds like the XCON is a made for shaft.  Will definitely go with the HD6 Even though it is 100 dollars more.

Ok, I thought the HD6 was the stock shaft. I knew the stock shaft was a Matrix and just assumed it was the HD6 after the OP mentioned it.

I unboxed today my R11S with the real deal Matrix HD 7M3...No TM graphics and the upcharge was a fraction of the shaft cost alone...headed to the course tomorrow!

It frustrates me so much that I couldn't get that shaft in the UK. Waiting on an Ahina right now. Hope it's the aftermarket graphics...
