Looking for some recommendations on a mid/high launch shaft for driver. Currently playing Fubuki Alpha 60 stiff and really like the shaft but want others opinions on similar shafts (others have recommended graphite design dj, ilima, etc) . Thanks.

You're not to far from the Golfworks in Newark, Ohio. See if you can hit some different shafts there. One I would look at would be the AXE SL.

    As cool as an Alanis Morissette harmonica solo.

Try thr Fubuki Tour. It launches higher than your alpha. Also a Redboard may be worth a look.

Adams Super LSP Black 23*/AxivRed 104x

While nothing can compare to testing them out I'll give you my opinion based on the ones I have played recently. I hit the ball relatively low so like driver shafts that are mid to high launch.  Favorite is the Diamana 'ilima (currently in my razr fit) followed by the AD-DJ (played in 910 last year) and then the Miyazaki Kusula White. I've tried many and these three are all great.  I had an alpha and didn't like it as we'll (wasn't as straight or long as others for me) but one of my playing partners has it now in a razr fit and he loves it.

+1 Fubuki Tour 63.

And the AD DI.  Both really smooth shafts that will match a lot of the feel of the Alpha, and are both mid/high launch.
