In the one and only driver fitting I've ever had. The 3 standout shafts were the Pro Orange which I already had followed by the kiyoshi limited and kiyoshi black. Out of those 3, the limited felt the best. So smooth. Produced really good numbers. In the end I opted to stick with the orange as the numbers were slightly better and I already owned it.Anyone have any experience hitting the oban kiyoshi tour limited or white shafts? especially the high swing speed hitters?

I HIT MY BUDDIES EPIC FLASH WITH TOUR LIMITED STIFF SHAFT.. THAT IS WHEN I FELL IN LOVE WITH OBAN SHAFTS. I'M A 260-280 YRD HITTER AND THE CONFIDENCE AND ABILITY TOHIT NEARLY EVERY FAIRWAY WITH MY OBAN IS A GREAT FEELING. AND TO TOP IT OFF THAT SHAFT DRIVER OFF THE DECK IS AWESOME ALSO!! THAT BECAME MY 2ND FAV SHOT WITH THAT SHAFT /DRIVER COMBO.I have tried both, as with anything Oban, they are great shafts. I felt the tour limited spun a little too much for me and didn't feel great. The white performed better and felt better in my opinion.
I am around 121-123 club head speed and 179-182 ball speed. I look for spin numbers generally in the low 2000s. If can get regular numbers in the 2100-2200 range I am very happy. I like mid launch shafts as I tend to hit the ball lower. So I want to be in the 12-13 launch angle range.
The tour limited gave me spin numbers in the 2500-2600 range and launched around 13'ish. the white was right at 2200 with better feel. Plus the white looks awesome.
As with all these things your mileage may vary and feel is very very subjective. I think with a little dialing in the tour limited could perform better, but I didn't like how it felt.
