Since there are so many shafts out there, I thought why not start a poll on shaft brand? Please let me know if your brand is not in the list and I will add it.

I had the Aldila Proto by You in my old Ping Rapture and Rapture 3 wood, so when I got my new R11 I went looking and found one.  I like the look and feel of the shaft and for me I believe it is a great fit and have a lot of confidence.  I replaced a Mitsubishi Fubuki that I might whip out and see if I notice any difference.  The specs are very similar but coming from different companies, they may be very different.

This is great. Let's keep the votes coming. If you have multiple drivers with different shafts, please vote for your favorite shaft.

I am currently using Miyazaki Kusala White 56x.

I noticed this got moved to clubmaking but can we move it back to the equipment forum? This is just a poll for shaft brand and has nothing to do with clubmaking.

I just had a Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 6.2 put in a Yonex Cyberstar CT head, and I just love it.  Went with the non-tour spec version for a higher launch.  Pretty sweet.

PX-6.0 S-flex. Good shaft but had trouble getting the carry my swing speed should have. Even though I couldn't get the ball in the air i could shape it.

Aldila RIP 60g S-flex (hated it) was too flimsy. The ball always faded, could never draw the ball.

UST Mamiya VTS silver 77g X-flex Exellent shaft. Gets the ball in the air and allows me to swing away. Smaller shot dispersion and my misses are still in play. Can shape the ball both ways.

Reminds me I have a Beta 60x in a 9015d.  Way too light.   I was going to reshaft it but never got around to it.  Maybe I'll throw an x100 in that one. That's such a fun cheap experiment.

Iv been really impressed with UST's VTS series. I put the shaft's in my hybrid and 3W as well and really like the feel (suits my swing). I do want to try some of Diamina's shafts. Iv never hit them and here good things.

Yep, on this site the poll should be "What shaft do you have in your driver this WEEK"  I have had nearly every brand on the list at one point.  Last week it was a AXE Tour 6+, but starting Friday it will be a Diamana D+ White
