    ProForce V2 R-flex 66g

    Post  Pky6471 on Thu Mar 21, 2013 7:43 am

    Anyone uses this model in gaybrid?
    Mongrel and all Pros out there... as I mentioned, couple wks ago one guy broke his 4W at the head so he gave this shaft to me. He told me he extracted from a driver and installed to his 4W and cut at butt end for 4W length. I tend to hit everything high, I hit my Adams Tech OS gaybrid extremely well (OEM graphic Design gaybrid shaft)except I think it went higher than I would like to see. I wonder if I could reuse this ProForce V2 shaft and bring its trajectory down... why? stupid R&D mentality.

    Thanks guys/girls/AC-DC

    That V2 might work in your hybrid but it was designed as a driver shaft. I had that exact same shaft in my 907 D2 10.5 inserted all the way and hit some of my best drives ever with it. Now UST Mamiya makes V2 hybrid shafts and I have a bunch of those including one regular flex that is currently in a Cobra Baffler 20*. I've had the stiff flexes of the same shaft in both Cobra hybrid heads. I got the shafts for $2.97 each at Golf Galaxy brand new uncut so WTF might as well experiment. I've gotten some amazing hits with those hybrids both with the stock Aldila NV HL shafts and the V2's. The V2 should definitely go lower but might feel a bit stiff to you. Depending on what your guy will charge you to stick that driver shaft in your hybrid, keep in mind that the V2 hybrid shaft costs only about $29 brand new and it is designed to do the job from the drawing board.

    Had to take my mom up to the eye doctor and had a few minutes to burn so went to the austads golf store. Like GG and GS but a smaller chain. Picked up a set of Hogan Apex Plus with the apex 4 shafts and barely used grips for an even hundred. Would rate them about an 8. Been looking at these for a couple of months so be interesting to see how they work when the snow leaves. I just despise hitting irons off of mats so didn't swing em in their booth plus time was limited. Couple of people ahead of me waiting to hit. So who on this site has played these? Anybody know where they were forged at? Not that it matters just curious.

    Doesn't matter since it will get read anyway. After reading your original, I did some snooping around and found out that those Hogans might have been forged by the ninjas if they were made in the late eighties to maybe ninety two or so. Good price for them nonetheless.

    After doing some research, this set was made mid 90's to early 2000's. Doesn't matter.

    Says Spaulding on the shaft labels so they are at least pre-callaway.
