I need to pick it up from my clubfitter to take some photos so I'll do that through the week.
I'll take some photos and email them to you if you like, it is in as new condition with a Golf Prive Tour Velvet Cord grip.
IIRC your XLS is a .350 tip and the .335 can be fitted no problems by a decent clubfitter.
The good news about that is you can also have them shim the head to a slightly different face angle if need be.
For me that is a bonus as I prefer an open face angle on my driver. (and 3 wood)
I pulled the Matrix as I had it in a head that wasn't a perfect combo the shaft was too low spin! I actually found that I didn't launch it with enough spin to carry it as far as I wanted the head was a low launch very low spin head (V1 Burner Tour Issue) I needed something with higher launch.
I tinker with things a lot, I am now looking for something new something with a little more spin and a slightly higher launch. (Or a much higher launch and low spin)
I'm looking for a new driver, Ping Rapture V2 is on the shopping list as is a Tour Superquad 282 LCG proto... I just need some more $$$ to buy one!
I need to launch the ball higher with more spin, I've made some swing changes and I am hitting the ball lower and with little spin and a higher launch will be key for me so a higher launch head is on my shopping list.
For a 110mph swing it should suit nicely, I swing it about 105-108 at the moment with a short quick tempo and it was great. You have got plenty of length so you can tip it if need be to stiffen it up a little and the bonus of that is you will spin the ball even less.
Having noticed that you have VS Proto in stiff and the TP reax shafts in stiff then being too soft won't be an issue the shaft will play a touch firmer than what you have at the moment this will also help you spin the ball less too.
The X-CON 5 is basically the highest launching lowest spinning shaft on the market, so if this is what you are after then you have found the right shaft!
