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.

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?

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.

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!
