Thanks to DGMan for lettinng me and S70B try out the shaft... First impressions on the range that night with S70B.. needless to say he bombed every drive to the edge of the net. he was very impressed with the shaft.. as for humble me, i played it the next day and i hit 13 out of 14 fairways.. the missed one was a toe hit that went miles.. but into the water on left.. as for the rest, all straight on the FW... I find the shaft very stable more so than the Kai'li and Gramman 4 series as well as the Motore F1.. I'm not returning the shaft to DGman... Smile

Must return meh??? Shocked

haha...but seriously, this shaft is good. The torque on the one fitted on my head is slightly more than the Ultimate series but it performed pretty good.

Had an ok day driving (due to swing changes) for my game with DGMan and 'i' on the 17th June and I must say its alot easier to hit low draws into the wind with this shaft despite it being 10g lighter than what I was playing. Also, it helped me win back my golf ball. tongue

Also, really missed the feeling of the 905R head. Glad that its back in the bag. cheers

PS: I'm not returning the shaft too so these babies are running out fast! Razz

Eric will tell you why. Its just the diff between a hitter and a swinger. Whats great is that this shaft can be fitted for both types Wink

there are 4 tester currently using the prototype codename Swordfish....

young "i" is the last one, he got his 50 A fix on his R9 this evening.

S70B has his on his 905R and i have it tweak same facing as "i" and S70B on my R9.

the interesting thing about this shaft is the low spin and the very stable ball flight. i witness first hand playing with Rex the other day...

Now for the last mystery user...he is a Multiple Tour Winner who has been using TourAds for the longest time.

We hand over a Callaway Legacy Tour with a 75S Tour Ad and a Callaway FT-9 Tour with the new prototype 75S yesterday. He called me to tell me that he prefers the black shaft and said that it is very stable and penetrating. He sound as enthusiastic as Lamts18 after his first day with the Prototype.

Before we get too excited, lets wait and see the shaft performance for another week.

I am looking forward to testing the prototype again this weekend.

this week he came 4 times liao and he will always call and ask if he can come. very humble and don't take things for granted...best of all he goes around saying hello to everyone in the shop and really much much better than some of the those super how lian so-called national golfers who are half baked.

also we have a new user of the white fishy shaft who is amongst the top 8 lady golfer in Sg, even though she was sick during the national ranking, she was given the top 8 ranking. only 14 years old and very talented.

she is going to the Junior Callaway Championship in US next month and we wish her all the best.

Yeah, she's very friendly and pleasant Smile

Put me under stress while I was testing my swingspeed the other day. She was watching me while I was embarrassing myself hitting the balls in awkward directions (even though they all hit the cloth, we all know that it's either a bad slice or a horrible hook). But, she was very encouraging and that was appreciated Smile

Didn't he shoot 99 off the blue? That's freakin' impressive as-is.
