Anyone know of a shaft, such as Rifle, etc, that might have similar characteristics/feel as this?

Thanks,
Randy

I've heard that the ZZ65 is similar to Dynalite Gold.

I'm definately not a shaft guru but the Ping web site says the Z-Z65 has playing characteristics similar to Dynamic Gold but at a lighter weight.  Based on that I'm thinking the DGS300 SL might be pretty similar.

It's a custom shaft, using Ping specifications. It falls somewhere between the CSLite and DG, closer to the DGSL. Ball flight will be between these two. This from the Ping CS rep.

The Z-Z65 shaft was designed to have the bend profile of the D S300 at about 12 grams lighter weight. As others have said it is a propetiary shaft that really has no close match. If you are looking to match similar ball flights look a the DG SL

I agree with all that has been said above.  I played the ZZ-65 in a set of Ping I3 Blades for 5 years.  Switcjed last year to a set of MP-60s with the DGSL shaft and they seem to play very simular.

This information is from the Ping website:

CS-LITE (Regular & Stiff): Weight: 93.9 ®, 107.3 (S) Torque: 1.8 ®, 1.7 (S) Description: Lightweight steel shaft that has a mid flex point and a mid to soft tip section. A very common shaft found in the G2 and G5 series. Ball Flight: This shaft is designed to hit the ball the highest of all of the shafts offered at this flex.

Z-Z65 (Stiff): Weight: 108.8g Torque: 1.6 Description: An updated version of the ZZ-Lite. Lightweight steel shaft that has a high flex point and stiff tip section. This shaft is only offered in stiff. The Z-Z65 is similar in flex to a Dynamic Gold S300, but is much lighter in weight. A very common shaft in ISI irons through current iron offerings. Ball Flight: This shaft is designed for a mid-ball flight due to the weight. It should fly lower then the CS-Lite and higher then the DGS and DGX.

ZZ-LITE (Stiff): Weight: 115.0g Torque: 1.9 Description: Very similar to the Z-Z65 but heavier in weight. The ZZ-Lite has a high flex point and stiff tip section. A very common shaft in Eye 2 irons. Ball Flight: Same as the Z-Z65. (NOT available for new orders)

JZ (Regular & Stiff): Weight: 109.8g ®, 115.1g (S) Torque: 1.9 ® 1.7 (S) Description: A mid weight steel shaft that plays a little softer than the Z-Z65 and ZZ-Lite. A very common shaft in Zing, Zing 2, and ISI irons. Ball Flight: Due to the mid flex point of this shaft it is designed to hit the ball between the CS-Lite and the Z-Z65. (NOT available for new orders)

DGS (Stiff): Weight: 124.5g Torque: 1.5 Description: Dynamic Gold S-400. A heavy shaft with a high flex point and a stiff tip section. Ball Flight: Weight of this shaft should hit the ball lower then all of the shafts except the DGX.

DGX (X-Stiff): Weight: 122.8g Torque: 1.4 Description: Dynamic Gold X-100. A heavy shaft with a high flex point and a very stiff tip section. Ball Flight: This shaft is heavy and aimed at players with a high swing speed or quick tempo. The shaft should produce the lowest ball flight of all shafts listed.

KT & KT-M (Stiff): Weight: 106g Torque: 1.9 Description: A mid weight shaft with a high flex point and stiff tip section. These shafts are most commonly found in Eye2, and Zing irons. Ball Flight: Mid, similar to ZZ-Lite (NOT available for new orders)

Microtaper (Stiff): Weight: 115g Torque: 1.9 Description: A mid-weight shaft with a high flex point and stiff tip section. This shaft is very similar to the KT Shaft. Most commonly found in the K series, Eye, and Eye 2 irons. Ball Flight: Mid, similar to ZZ-Lite (NOT available for new orders)


Hope this helps.

Thanks all.  I have DGS300's in my MP 32's now.  I hit these pretty damn high.  I hit the S58 with these PING shafts much lower.  I also hit the Ben Hogan blade the other day with a Rifle 6 and this was much lower as well.  Funny thing is the Ben Hogan's loft is much weaker than my 32's.
