Aye, annoys the crap out of me that I only get about 5m roll
off my tee shots! I like the feel of the prolite, and I've
tried the EI-70, vista pro and hm-40 as well. Never tried the
Proforce 75, but I'll try to find one and give it a shot.
You think the weight of the shaft will make a big difference?
The vista pro was an 80 stiff, but I found it fairly heavy to
I used to have the same problem with the stock Taylormade stiff
shaft on the R580. I replaced it with an aftermarket Speeder 757
stiff and I seemed to get a more roll.
There are a lot of factors to consider such as weight, tip, flex,
loft etc. I have the EI-70 on a 975J 8.5° and it is
comparable in flight, roll and distance with the R580 9.5°
Fujikura stiff (the TM is more forgiving).
As Mau stated, you need to try a few shafts to find one that
matches your swing.
I'll wait a few more months before I look at the Nike again.
