I have lost touch with current shafts so I pose this question.

I have a buddy who wants a new driver shaft. He loves my r9 supertri head so he bought one for himself. Problem is he hits the stock shaft like shit, its R flex and he has a rather violent tempo. He gets quite quick at the top times as well (a lot really), the funny part is his swing speed is only about 92-99mph on average. He wants a new shaft, and by new he means no more than 2 year old tech. Regardless of what i tell him he insists. He would like to spend between 50 and 200 at the most.

All of these in an R flex should be fine.

his swing-speed and his fast tempo qualifies him for at least a Stiff, maybe even tipped. He'll still need a soft tip to keep him straight and get the ball up high.
Put him in a Proforce V2 stiff. (Tell him it's the new improved model  big_giggle)

Motore F1 65 R - it's a stout shaft and should hold up to your friend.  If it doesn't, hmmmm.....  I found the Motore F1 65 R to be more stout, and a bit stiffer, than the Motore F1 75 R.
