If I recall, the red line faces the target.  So it would be at "9 o'clock" if looking down at the club from address.  Does that make sense?

Let us know how it goes for you.

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.

Excuse my ignorance, but are the red/white lines a standard part of Xcaliber shafts or are they orientation markings from Pureing?  Thx.

No. Purering is a proprietary process.

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.

I spined my Excalibur and it came out to the red line facing the target.

FWIW,
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).
