Hi Eric,

Personally, I do not gauge if one shaft is better than the other just by their specifications. Each golfer have our own swing characteristics which may suits certain type of shafts. Like what bro Eiji mentioned, general known shaft characteristics are the weight, kick point, stiffness etc, so before you know which shaft suits you better, it is important to first understand your swing.

A club fitter will be able to advice you on a good match of shaft based on analyzing your swing. So priority is to have a consistent swing before determining what shaft best suits you.

A well fitted, matching shaft to your swing should give you better control, feedback and stability. I know I did not answer your question directly but hope the above still help you in one way or another.

i used to play a Graphite design YS-6+. Good shaft with nice ball flight but it feels like hitting rocks even though i'm playing quite a flexible shaft. not sure if it's the same with the model you are asking about.

Thks guys for the feedback n info. I think simply to say anyone is fine for the start and to consult a club fitter once my swing is consistent. sunny

I have YS6 and for me this shaft works. The only problem is that its soft comparing to other marks. The launch is slightly higher. Depending on what are yr stats, if you're a hitter type and with above average swing speed, then i suggest Aldila. If you are the swinger type with smooth and easy swing, YS6 would be the best.

I have YS6 on Cleveland Launcher 10.5. I average about 190 to 200m.
