Straighter and longer. Harrison "Shotmaker" or Bi-Matrix shaft?

So I like my Adams Speedline with the Ozik Matrix shaft but I'm wondering "How can I make this better?"

I'm not plagued with truly wild left or right misses but would one of these additions make me a better driver of the golf ball?

Harrison "Shotmaker" vs. Graffaloy Bi-Matrix shaft.

Seems that the premise is the same: greater stability, right?  One method uses a tube inserted into the existing shaft while the other is a graphite shaft with a steel extension that provides the added stiffness.  Uh, that's right, isn't it?

Are there dramatic differences?  Has anyone hit both?

Thanks and happy golfing.

I'd say get fit for a shaft & throw a shotmaker in it... I'm a accurate driver of the ball & didn't need it want it, rep gave me one to try out so I figured why not try it out. It definitely works, I like how it stiffens up the tip section a bit & how it does help my misses, it isn't a huge difference IMO but it does help. Last time I hit a Grafalloy Prototype was when I got my hands on Bubba's actual shaft as I wanted a pink driver shaft & the retail one wasn't still enough, just hit it too high. For me I had the same problem with the Bubba shaft, the Prototype is made more for increasing launch angle rather than help straighten out your ball flight. I'd rather use a steel shaft than he Grafalloy Prototype, just went back to a x100 in my 3wood & love it.

My two cents - based on SS of 96-98mph with medium tempo and late release - the Ozik HD6 in my RBZ Tour was perfect - I tinkered with the Saga 60S - that combo was a bit more "loose" ~200 more rpm of spin and slightly higher launch.  Dropped the Shotmaker insert in the Saga60S and instantly became "perfect(er)" - Had my best driving day in recent history yesterday with the Shotmaker in the Saga (and the counterweight).  Saga + Shotmaker lowered launch a bit, killed the extra spin, and performed better than HD6, at least for me.  Also, at retail prices - you can save $$$.   I went with the Shotmaker "F" based on their website fitting information.
