R11 9* Set Open-
Graffaloy Bi-Matrix X Flex at 44" is my go to shaft now.
Fujikura Motore Speeder VC7.0 S Flex Tipped 1" at 44.5"

I may go back to the Fuji for the late Fall to early spring with the additional 20+ layers of clothing that tend to slow the swingspeed down.  I feel like the Michelin Man or Ralphy's little brother all bundled up in A Christmas Story!

Arthur Extreme is missing from the list!

It would have at least one vote by now.

I'd like to see House of Forged on the list as well... just out of interest.

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.

I have the same shaft in my Callaway Razr Hawk.  I also have the Fubuki.  I took both to GG and got on the launch monitor.  Even thoughthe specs are similar, the results were not.  The Proto whupped on the Fubuki in my hands.

Looks like Aldila and Mitsubishi Rayon are the most popular shafts on the forum, followed by Fujikura and Graphite Design.

Let's get everybody's vote.

I wonder how many votes for the Aldila and Mitsubishi Rayon are simply because that's the stock shaft that came in there driver?  Diamana and RIP are the most common stock offerings aren't they?

Just a thought for another variable..

I have a UST Mamiya in my G20. I'v never hit a UST shaft before and I'm actually liking it a lot. Its a shaft that shouldn't work for me going by the blurb but it does and I'm liking the late kick it seems to give.
