Matt..
What did you end up playing the Mini at, 43.5 or 44?

Heard the HZRDUS smoke green is counterbalanced which makes it interesting for me. What is the bend profile? Ideally comparing it to a Tensei Pro Orange?

The smoke green is NOT counter balanced like the T1100 was. Itís a little like the KK XT where it is a stout shaft but feels smooth.

I played the 70g in 6.0 and it was a great shaft, my only complaint was it was a touch heavy and the PVD finish wears like crap.......Im going to be testing a 60g in 6.5X. ( there is also a 6.5TX ) in matte black today.  So far it seems like the Ventus 6X has given me the most control and distance, but im always searching

Whatís your SS with Driver normally?

Ever since I tore my rotator cuff Iím lucky to be around 103 or so. But I have a short swing and hard transition so I always seem to fit into a stiffer profile than swing speed would suggest.

The Ventus sounds awesome and Fuji is definitely sexier than PX but fact is PX is making stellar shafts and pushing the envelope with materials to make them feel smooth but play stiff.

My PVD finish is wearing well but I havenít played a ton of rounds with it either

Hmmm so your fine with 70 gram 6.0 flex?

My "old reliable" for mini driver builds is the venerable Protopype 80X. Just works.

Matt..
What was your thinking of not tipping the Driver Shaft?
Reason I ask is the mini head is the same weight as a  3 wood head...??

An un-tipped shaft will play a little softer/be a little bit more active.

Really I thought a Tipped shaft played Stiff due to the fact your altering the kick point, mainly lowering it?..

What Iím try to do is use this Accra TZ5 M4 flex in mini Driver at 44Ē...

But the Mini Driver Head is around 211g I think..( same head weight as my cobra 3wood)...
My thoughts was the Extra Head weight PLUS shorter over all shaft length makes differences??

I use it off the deck occasionally and didnít want it to be too stiff. Built it to 43.5Ē and figured if need be I could tip it 1/2Ē and still play at 43Ē but itís been perfect so far. Just had some range time with it and was killing it.

Iím hoping the Extra Head weight( 210 grams) slightly softens the overall feel
