I am about to order a Big Bertha (not Alpha) and I am trying to decide which shaft to go with. I have looked around and I cant seem to find any specs on either shaft. I know the Zeta has a mid kick point and the Zeta Tour has a mid-low kick. I am hoping someone has some more info on each and maybe has hit both in the same head. Thanks

ZT will be a little lower launch and it's flex point will be closer to the grip compared to the standard zeta. I felt that the Zeta was a little softer than ZT in stiff and xstiff.

I'm leaning towards the Zeta X. What would you compare the Zeta X to?

Hard to say... I know when I hit the ZT in x it was smooth, like an AD DI I'm currently playing if that helps any. Just as smooth feeling as any high end shaft IMHO.

Slightly different feel to it, but if you liked Fubuki Tour, you will like the Fubuki ZT shaft.

I just read in the Bertha thread in the Pre release forum that the ZT would be comparable to the Fubuki k in terms of launch and spin. According to Mitsubishi's website the K " allows golfers of all skill levels to generate the highly sought after high-launch, low spin shot shape needed to maximize both carry and roll". I've never hit the fubuki K

From my experience the Zeta is med/high trajectory mid/high spin.  The Zeta tour or more mid/mid.

Correct on ZT, same mid/mid as Fubuki Tour as mentioned above.  OP, think you'll like the ZT!
