I just bought a couple last night. A tour 6 and a tour 7 both in tour stiff flex.
I intend on trying them on an r11 head. But need to wait a couple more weeks before I receive them.

Here is an explanation from the man himself.

Put the white line on the target line. Even if you put it different you wouldn't feel any difference. I have done it both ways.

Not realizing that the XCalibers come with the red and white butt lines, I paid $15 for SST Pure when I ordered my new shaft from GolfWorks. The SST Pure results, relative to the AXE white and red butt lines, are as follows:
* SST Pure line and AXE white/red line results are consistent (I think)
* However, the AXE white line faces AWAY from the target (3 o'clock for righty) and the red line faces DOWN (6 o'clock for a righty) when following the recommended install orientation from SST Pure- - this seems fine to me since the plane of best bending/torsion is still in the direction of flight whether the white line faces forward or aft. Am I correct in my thinking?
Bottom line, my $15 was probably wasted, but at least I learned a few things for next time. Now we'll see if it seems to make any difference when installed.
Also FYI, my back-ordered XCaliber arrived today (14th).
