I’m primarily interested in getting a fairway wood and maybe a driver someday (probably KE4 Tour TC). However, I am having difficulty choosing between shafts. I recently purchased a KE4 FDI 3-iron (21*) with the regular flex Maltby MPF shaft and truly like it. My specs for that build was 39″ length, D0 swing weight, and 1 degree up. I essentially went for a 3-iron replacement in my i15 set. I carry about 200 – 210 with that build and really like the trajectory, no ballooning. The MPF shafts do seem a little stiffer so I went with regular expecting it to stiffen up when getting cut down from the standard length of 40″ (I think that is standard for the FDI). I feel it’s sufficiently stiff for my relatively relaxed swing (smooth transition). I hit a stock Cobra Fly-Z+ driver with stock stiff shaft about 260 – 280 on average.

I just can’t find very much information regarding how the Kuro Kage, Tensi, Fujikura, UST, and Maltby offerings compare. Any insight or sources would be appreciated.
