So long story short, I like my 5w (TEE XCG-5).  It has the stock Tour AD 40 Regular flex shaft tipped 1-1/2" in it.  I have the matching XCG-5 3w, but it has the stock Fujikura shaft.  I've been hunting for a pulled Tour AD 40 but have had zero luck so far.

Any thoughts on what a similar shaft to the Tour AD 40 would be?  I haven't been able to find any shaft profile information on it so I got nothing to go on really.  Obviously I'm looking for a very lightweight FW shaft and I'm a budget conscious kind of guy.  I've contacted TEE but they are closed for the weekend so I don't know what they can or can't do.

Any ideas?  The only thing on my list right now is the AXE Tour SL...

I just put the AXE Tour SL Reg shafts in my TEE XRail and Trilogys and my XGC-3 4W.  The XGC-3 had the stock Motore and it was just too skookum for me to use. (Still up in the air if it will knock out my Trilogy 3 wood for at least part of the time.)

Only have just started practicing with them, but  a smooth transition for me so far.  If you have tipped you AD 40 so much, I would recommend calling GolfWorks and ask whether  a reg or stiff for you in the Xcaliber might be best, especiallay if you plan on overtipping  a reg. I spoke to them twice, both times i got a rep that actually played the shaft.
