Thanks ! Thinking about the idea with the third bag ;)

The house of forged shafts are quite nice and good value for money.
You can feel that they are produced by Matrix. Especially the Jamie S. shaft has a great flex profile and is very easy to load.
Having said that, my shafts are 2 years old. My club maker told me that like Matrix the quality has gone downhill quite a bit. Now they have almost the same quality range as Aldila.
Therefor he is no longer using them.

For its size it is quite forgiving. At least more forgiving than the EPON AF 102 :)
Very easy to shape and low launching. The sound is quite special and it does feel great when hit in the sweetspot.
But not vey soft.

Despite that I love it. Together with the OBAN Tour Proto very long.
Great to see the faces of the flight partners when the look at this big 3 wood which is longer than their 460cc pans :))

@ Jan:
Initial impression is good. I like the ball flight, the sound and the feel.
In terms of length I am not sure yet... winter came in too early to be sure.
It seems to be a bit longer than the 102. I still have to test it against the Miura in real live.
On the launch monitor, spin rate is lower and carry is longer...
But it is a bit less forgiving and has a lot lower ball flight (both shafted with OBAN tour prototypes)

At the moment it is in the bag (but it is winter, so that doesn't mean anything).
