Don't know, but I'm curious about them myself (though I don't think I have the swing speed to do them justice).

I know they have a supposed R flex rating of 70-80  mph....  but 'play' stiffer....

The "they play stiffer" part is what worries me. My driver ss is only ~85.

well then, they certainly might be too stout, but then again,  isn't  'playing stiffer'  all  relative to hit vs. swing, and 'feel', etc   anyways?     supposedly my  rifle 6.0's are too stiff for me (the amount I choke down, and the fact i never take a full swing with my irons, i usually don't get any of them above 80-82....   but the 1/2-3/4 swings make me really focus on accelerating, releasing, all that through the ball... and the shaft actually feels too 'NON' stiff!  LOL


then again, I am a weirdo...

Well, they're relatively inexpensive (~$9 per, IIRC) so one could experiment for relatively little, if one knew someone who could install them for little to nothing...

I have had them twice ( go figure)

swing speed with driver is approx 100mph

played the r flex, very nice dispersion with these, medium trajectory, good feel, I put prosofts in them even though they already have an insert in them.

good shaft
