Has anyone had any experience with one of these shafts?

The TXG guys did a video on one paired with the new Mizuno ST 190 head while at the PGA Show. From what I gathered it was a lively, but stable shaft made with 70T carbon. They likened the design to the TPT shafts in that the 70T carbon is intended to provide even greater head stability on off-center hits (not allow the head to deflect as much) thereby enhancing the clubs MOI.

I think this shaft was only just released. Not sure many people have access yet.

I'm curious about this shaft as well.

I have one that will be in my passion on Friday. Hoping to get some swings Sunday or early next week as the weather will be somewhat warm

Good deal! This shaft has me really excited. I'm looking at pairing it with the Cobra F9. Hoping you get some good weather!

It’s going into my g400. I don’t have a preference in profiles and have been fit into different ones over the years. A cb shaft seems to be the profile lately that has been the best option.

I tend to lean towards low launch and spin or mid.

I should know this, but is this a CB shaft? Do you have a SW target in mind?

I didnt see counter balance or higher balance point in any of the press releases.

It is a slightly different profile compared to the 757 and atmos ts black. This could be a fun shaft to try.

I have gamed both of these - the original blue Evo 757 and the TS Blue ad Black and I love their feel. Can't wait to see where this one falls in their lineup.

From what I read it’s not a CB. I’m not one who measure swing weight or anything like that. Fujikura asked my shaft build specs and tip. I gave them what I was playing currently. If things don’t feel right I’ll have my guy look at it and straightened out.

They look so good. Might have to get one to compare against the atmos ts black and tensei pro white.
