Also, the shaft that was in it might tell you also as some shafts don't come in parallel, etc...

You sure the anti glare finish isn't just the plastic wrap?

But seriously...

You commented insertion depth is deeper with Itobori irons than other heads?  Shouldn't that serve to stiffen the shaft some, almost like tipping it?

So based on hand feel and insertion depth, possibly a flex looser than standard insertion Roddio?

Not too big but not baby blade compact.  Minimal offset which is atypical of a GI iron.  Top line has the arakena anti glare type finish.  Nicely done.

Per hand flex the diamond speeder seems softer than the roddio.

Ok.. 6i shafted with diamond speeder and 8i with bangvoo.

I must say again, Itobori specs are bang on.  Taper tip heads with hosel depth maybe 1.4 of an inch deeper than the tomato, mizuno, Grind works and callaway forged I measured it against.

Will only have tine for 1 or 2 range sessions week. Should be enough to see which I prefer.

No rush, follow your normal pattern.  I'm putting the OTI in the mb-247Ds so it is more a curiosity for future...

Yeah.. the roddios are just simply very good shafts. 

Give me a couple of weeks to get back on the comparo.   After the roddio, in goes the bangvoo, then the diamond.  Anything in particular you're looking for? Ball flight, dispersion?  I won't be able.ti help launch and spin.. unless I find that damn es14 I bought a while back and have yet to use.
Looking for ball flight and swing effort required...
Roddio can be a smooth swingers paradise shaft and does well with aggressive hitter swings too.  Many of the shafts I have are better on aggressive swings, so looking for that smooth option...

OK.. will let you know soon.  I'm gonna put the Bangvoo in the 8I and the Diamond Speeder in the 6I.  Not like for like I know but its more important that I hit them all with the same swing on the same day.  As my Grind Studios already has Roddio I-8, will hit against the GS 7I as well for reference.
