Hi guys,

Me got the XCaliber Tour 6+ Stiff driver shaft and stuck a titleist 909D3 head to it.

After a first range session, medium height ball flight and nice, stable thru the swing.

Was using the whiteboard 73x on a 9064LS 8.5 deg head.

Comparable distance off the tee and possible more roll on the xcaliber!!!

Seems like the sweetest deal ever on a shaft for me!!!

Now hoping for more session and see if the magic retains...

Maybe can arrange a game for all the XCaliber shaft users... Kekeke


+1 for XCaliber owners game!

Tried out my fren's SL regular flex on an Adams 9064LS 9.5* head. I normally use a stiff flex. But just tried it out anyway. Think the SL is more suitable for smooth swingers. I had to slow down my tempo b4 hitting good shots. A nice smooth swing produced a nice mid trajectory mini draw. Dont seem to get much feedback when I really gave it a good whack. Felt kinda flat. Maybe not used to the head. But the R doesn't feel whippy at all. Was actually quite firm.

Then I hit a few w a R9 supertri 10.5* head. This one produced really high balloon shots that were straight with also a lil draw. Maybe cus of the R flex. Wasn't a good combo for me. Although it's supposed to be super lite, swing weight of D3. The shaft feels pretty stable and for the price..really can't complain. Smile

Think I should just go get my SL stiff flex installed tmr and give it a try on my supertri 8.5* head and see if it can replace my whiteboard 63S.

The Tour hybrid shaft, I feel it's a tad heavy for me. Killed the feeling of my R9 hybrid 19* which I loved so much for the feel. Good shots produced good distance, but pretty low ball flight. Straight though. Would prefer a higher ball flight so I can use it for long par 3's or shorter par 5's.

This is my newbie review ( started golfing for abt a yr and 1st time re-shafting)

I wasnt in the purchase list like you guys , i was too late when i came across this post , was tempted after reading it and went to make my own purchase Smile

Had my SL Regular flex on my RBZ 10.5 driver.... tried out on course today , i feel the regular shafts is abit more stiff and feels more heavier than the RBZ stock shaft (Luckily didnt purchase the stiff shaft) . tee off is a very slight draw with a penetrating mid flight , still not very consistant yet cause i didnt try it out at range , and i cant wait to bring it straight to the course .. haa

I like the ball flight very much , usually i will have a little fade with my swing previously but for this it shaft it never happens today , with my slow swing tempo its either straight or a little draw. Even when i didnt hit the sweet spot , the ball still has a pleasant distance for me . Can actually see the penetrating ball in the air when u drive off . The contact feel is a bit hard for me . but I get abt 230m with rolls for 2 good shots which is really 10m more then what i achieved in the past .

Overall , a very very good shaft and the best is its CHEAP ! No regrets with the purchase Very Happy

The Reg shaft is 240 +/- 3cpm, which is nearer towards stiff than a normal Reg shaft. From I what I read in reviews, it hold true to it firmness.

I havent had the chance to pick up my shaft yet. hope to this sat.. DGman.. here i come

My Xcalibur is still at customgolf OCC, waiting to be worked on. Heard from the fitter there today that he encountered someone that cracked his Xcalibur shaft already. Which poor soul so strong ah?

I just tried my seXcalibur Tour SL for the first time at the range today.

Ballflight was really good, mid trajectory without ballooning. It is evident that the SL version has been really able to keep my spin down. And regardless of the higher torque value than my previous shaft, it actually feels more stable. I have yet to try it on the course, but I've a good feeling that it's going to kick the old driver out of the bag.

I would be keen to take part in next mass order if it is happening.
