2008 Shaft Buyer's Guide

The engine of every club is the shaft, and now is the time to get your engine running at top speed. Today?s shafts are, without question, better than ever.

UST Proforce V2 High Launch
Key Feature: The Proforce V2 is a Tour-quality shaft designed for the best players in the world, as well as you and me. The High Launch version provides the same quality but with a more active tip section to help lower hitters get the ball up in the air more easily.
What We Like: That the High Launch is made from the same high-modulus materials and Tour-proven technologies as the original V2, but with a tip section that features a higher degree of flexibility and a bit more torque.
Who It’s For: Made to order for players who naturally hit the ball low or have a tough time achieving an optimum trajectory and carry distance. Anyone who hits the ball lower than they would like would do well to give the V2 High Launch a try.
Material: High-modulus graphite
Weight: 52g-77g
Torque: 2.8-4.5
Flex Point: Mid
Flexes: X, S, R, A
UST Proforce HMOI
Key Feature: Providing stability for oversized driver heads is the main goal of the HMOI design, which is accomplished in part with a higher balance point, which offsets heavier head weights. The HMOI feels quite a bit lighter during the swing than the static weight would suggest, which makes it easier to swing the shaft aggressively.
What We Like: Tour-proven Proforce tip technology in a shaft designed expressly for use with today’s massive driver clubheads. Also, the higher balance point gives the HMOI a somewhat unique feel that makes it easier to swing fast.
Who It’s For: Any golfer who plays with a 460cc driver. Anyone who wants more stability throughout the swing, particularly those players who like to swing aggressively.
Material: High-modulus graphite
Weight: 62g-73g
Torque: 3.2-4.1
Flex Point: Mid-high
Flexes: X, S, R, A
