I was just curious if you guys had to guess what the international flex codes would have to be on these shafts?  Assume standard stiff flex, I'd suppose.

Graphite Design AD BB6
Kiyoshi White and Black
original Diamana Whiteboard
Diamana White + 72
Speeder VC 6.2
Fubuki K 70

Thank you!

Not really. I don't really have much faith in such a flex rating system.
If you want a relative comparison of similar shafts, you could try Clevelands custom catalog:

or try Googling yourself for flex codes.

Miyazaki was also offering on facebook to provide flex codes for any shaft available.  They haven't done it in a while but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Those international flex codes is no good IMO compared to Tom Wishon Shaft profiling Software with more than  just 4 zones
- I picked 3 Grafalloy R flex shafts from the Cleveland catalog with codes like this

Shaft................................
ProLaunch BLUE 65 R - 3.6.5.1.
ProLaunch BLUE 75 R - 3.5.5.1
ProLaunch RED R--------3.6.4.1

International flex codes say they are equal butt and tip side

Wishon -------Butt / 41   - Tip 21 / 11
BLUE 65R     235/158   -  477 / 749
BLUE 75R     235/158   -  471 / 696
RED R           242/172  -   504 / 812

We might say that BLUE 65 R and BLUE 75 R is identical at butt, and close at tip, but RED is about half a flex class stronger at butt, and the same at tip, so the international flex code cant split them as high or low launch like Wishon can.
