Anybody playing this shaft in their 910 D3 driver? I have been gaming my D3 with the stock Aldila RIP 60, but recently hit my buddies D3 who has the custom proforce V2 stiff 66g shaft in his.  It seemed like a great setup.  Anyone out there playing this combo?  Can anyone compare these 2 shafts?  Thanks!

I would also, like to see if anyone else is playing this set up, golf season is over until the fall, so i can finally try to bring down my flight with a lower flighted shaft.

I used to play this shaft in a Maltby CT-250 driver head. Liked it a whole lot.

I have it in a Cobra head and a Burner. Hit it better than any other shaft.

I played the 66s in my D2, good shaft especially for the money. I eventually out grew it a bit and tried a 66x but that was way too much so my search led me elsewhere.

I play this shaft in both my 910D3 and R9 Superdeep that I rotate.

In my case, this shaft has proved to be very stable with tight dispersion (more the 75g version but at the expense of a lower flight), easy to load producing a nice mid to high flight and with a nice feel as opposed to many reviews that say that feels harsh.

I started playing this shaft when I got the Titleist 905R and then as an upgrade in the rest of the drivers I had (R7 Superquad TP, R9 SD and 910D3) replacing a Fujikura TP S shaft an Aldila RIP 60 S and a Project X 7C3...

Although every time I setup in the tee and I see that flat yellow shaft pointing towards the ball, I feel that I am going to hit a great shot...:-), I have to admit that I did not have good results with their fairway version that is way too boardy for my swing.

Have a great game.

Best shaft I ever played! That's why I am going back to it. Got myself a 76 X to go in the "Tour Issue" Cleveland TL310 I have coming from the bay....Can't wait to get this shaft back in play and I think you wont go wrong with that choice "sgm54"

Good luck..

Play the 76 Stiff in my 909D2, hard to hit it right to left... Normally I fade this 275-300 (depending on conditions), on bad days it can get a little slicy...

I play this shaft in a 910 D2 at 76g stiff flex. Like Drijver said it can be a little tough to draw some days but it really keeps the flight and spin down. Great set-up.

I recently changed the stock ahina 72s to a Proforce V2 66x in my 910D2. Now playing at 11 deg of loft => No more snap hooks, high ball flight (for me) and good roll. I will have to disagree with those who find this shaft boardy.

Same here in my D2.  Rip the ball with tight dispersion. Ordered it without hitting it and couldn't be happier.

I have this shaft in my 910h in x flex. Love it. I could see how some people would consider it boardy, but for me it hits bullet draws all day long. Just ordered the 66x for my driver, get it back tomorrow so we will see how it goes.

I have had the 75 stiff in a 905S, 905R, 907D2, 909D2 and D3

My gamer for a year and a half has been the 909D2 with 75 stiff at 44.5 in. I have tried A LOT of other shafts - and most are really good but I cannot get the production that I get with this shaft. I think it is the low torque bc my dispersion is excellent. Will be trying the VTS in silver and black - as they are in the same family of shafts.

I agree with an earlier poster - I am just confident that when I put a decent to good swing it will go where I want it to and the distance is consistent.

I can draw it pretty well or hit a cut - and I have always liked the "boardy" stiff feel - like a good wood bat

FWIW - I don't hit it well in the D3 for some reason - it's a lefty but I am going to part with it soon as the D2 is just awesome still

If I have a club with a graphite shaft, it has a V2 in it.

I have experience the RIP alpha 77g, and lots of experience with the V2.  I play it in everything, driver, 3w, and hyrbid.  I'd make sure to get your buddy's exact specs if you loved his setup, and try to duplicate it.  I would imagine a good fitter can probably figure this out for you.

For me, the V2 spins a little more, but not too much at all.  So it is straighter, with more carry but a little less roll.  Net net:  same distance with better control (for me).  Haven't tried the RIP beta though, which seems like it may be a more popular version of the RIP.

Maybe take your buddy's driver, and your driver to a launch monitor and compare?

I have akmost this exact setup, 910 D3 with a 66 s tipped an inch at 44.5. Love this club, it feels just as solid as my 905R but is definitely more fogiving. I just got a VTS Black 6s that I will be trying out very soon though. Going to take both shafts to the range and see if anything can knock out the V2.

People who hate the V2 either hate the feel (extremely low torque) or didn't get the right launch conditions, which isn't really the shafts fault lol.

The V2 was my first entry into aftermarket staffs, and I'd even consider playing it in a fairway wood these days.  It's one of the most stable, accurate shafts you can get for your money.

I played a 67S v2 in a Diablo Edge Tour driver and a 76S in my CB2 3W.  The driver has been replaced with a Fast 12LS with the Fubuki, but the 3W is still in the bag and not going anywhere.  It's a fantastic shaft at a good price if you like a 'stout' feel and rip hard at the ball.  Smoother swingers 'usually' don't get along with it as well.

Hi flinchy,

How is the Fubuki Alpha vs the V2 spin wise for you? I have the Fast12LS 8.5 x-stiff Fubuki Alpha and get around 3400 rpm of spin with a launch angle of around 14. I was wondering if a V2 would bring down my spin without effecting the launch angle to much.

Interesting as I have the 905R tipped 1" at 44.5" (D7) and use the V2 76g.  Been in use 7 years!

I liked the V2 75g X and actually missed hitting it. Now I'm loving the Rip Alpha 70 X. I find them similar in certain ways, soft in the butt end, similar muted feel, both nice and stable. To me the Rip Alpha is everything I liked in the V2 and much more. No going back now.

I'm using V2 76g X in Adams 13 deg fairway XTD. Been hitting it like my driver distance at 290-310 any days! I decided to install V2 on 910 D3 and will pick up this Monday to see how it performs in a driver. Hope it goes much farther for Par 5 as Par 4 :)

I am currently playing the V2 76 in my 910D3 and I absolutely love it. I can fade it at will, or draw it(well its not a real draw set at D-2) at will.
last month, I played in our Clubs Member-Guest with a kid who had one in a 909, so for a thrill I tried the V2 in my 910D3 and it has been a winner for me.
If I could just stop hitting my 3w OB, maybe I could get the index to 10-12.....Driver problems have been solved for 2012!
