Yeah... UST looking to release a high spinning wedge shaft!!!
Problem is that the shaft is graphite but with a silver plating to make it look like steel...

Nonetheless a pretty looking shaft...
Wonder how these will stack up against the KBS Hi Rev or DG Spinner

It's a 125 grams shaft so I imagine it will feel like a steel shaft weight-wise. The question is: will it behave and feel like a steel shaft in play? I doubt...

Trying to get my hands on one of these, also on the ACCRA wedge shaft.

I have got a BG Spinner shaft. Testing on the range shows it is much better than the Rifle Spinner I've been playing for so long, knocked it out of my bag! Condition of testing: same head, same length, same swing weight but different total weight as the DG Spinner is (and feels) much heavier than the Rifle Spinner.

On a side note: I am going to get my hands on the Aldila NV RIP, it is an early prototype version (reportedly only 16 of them exists) in 65X untipped. Expecting it sometimes next week or first week of October at the latest. Wink

Good Luck trying to play the 65X Rip... They are stout and i feel they play stronger than their specs!
Got a RIP 60s which thinking of swapping out the K in the 9064 to replacing it with the RIP...

Btw, have you tried the Apollo Hump shafts? Rumors has it that True Temper copied the design

Nope, I have not tried the Apollo Hump.

As for Aldila RIP 60S... It is not as stout as you think it'll be. Trust me! I went to 70X and did better with the 70X compared to the 60S. It feels somewhat loose and not stiff enough for me...

LOL! Try the 60S out and let me know what you think. The guys over here (even the older players who plays 50-ish grams shaft) thinks that the 60S is not as stiff as it should be. Maybe a defect shaft? I don't know. But I do feel the 70X is a much better fit than the 60S.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamu

Jamu (formerly Djamu) is traditional medicine in Indonesia. It is predominantly herbal medicine made from natural materials, such as parts of plants such as roots, leaves and bark, and fruit. There is also material from the bodies of animals, such as bile of goat or alligator used.

In many large cities jamu herbal medicine is sold on the street by hawkers carry a refreshing drink, usually bitter but sweetened with honey. Herbal medicine is also produced in factories by large companies such as Fountain, Nyonya Meneer or Djamu Djago, and sold at various drug stores in sachet packaging. Packaged dried jamu should be dissolved in hot water first before drinking. Nowadays herbal medicine is also sold in the form of tablets, caplets and capsules.
