I have 10 shafts.  Most are not available through Callaway.

My top 3:
GD DI
Fujikura Motore Speeder 7.1
Okato

I bought a bunch of tips off ebay or pulled them off other shafts to make my own.  Very easy and quick.  Sometimes causes confusion as to what to play.

thanks for the info, how much did you tip the shafts to properly install the connectors, did you have much of a problem pulling off the connector?

Most shafts I tip 1".  Some less some more depending on profile and CPMs.

The connector is really easy to pull.  Use the wrench and a spacer between wrench and puller to save the ferrule.   Heat the black part of the tip only 20 seconds usually does it and it pops right off.  Use a little warm water and the ferrule is saved too.  No need to use the head, the composite will just get in the way and make it more difficult.

The game of golf is played pin high!!  If anything, take one more club.  Far too many golfers never hit their approach shots even remote close to the green.

Golf is deceptively simple yet endlessly complicated.  It satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect.  It is at the same time both rewarding and maddening--it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented

way better flight with the pype for me.  pype also feels way more stable imo.  if you don't get the pype ramon you're leaving yards on the table.  it's "better"  laugh
