Hello, I was just looking to see how this Xcaliber 6 shaft compares to the Maltby distance series, and Aldila NVS in a stiff flex for a driver. I have played the NVS, but not the others. The NVS is nice feeling, but sometimes if I go after one it gets a little loose and I end up with something high and leaking right. I have since changed that shaft out to an original Diamana Blueboard 63 stiff and really like that a lot. I was looking for another shaft at a cheaper price point to put into a back up driver. Something with a standard balance point and between 60-65 grams to give a mid launch mid spin type of performance.
