The UST AXIV Core Tour Black Hybrid like the Tour Black Driver/Fairway shaft is a mid-high launch design. the aftermarket shaft is 100 grams. An 85 gram version with the same profile was offered in some stock hybrids. The 85 gram shaft has about 1/2 degree more torque than the after market version which ranges from 2.3 in the R flex to 2.2 in the X flex. The profile is found in a number of hybrid shafts, including some of the Mitsubishi models.

Tip torque at 17″ is 1.85, Butt torque at 37″ is 2.5.  Good numbers for a high launch design.  If your hybrids have a tendency to hook, a shaft with low tip torque may be the cure.  This profile is a classic, you will see it again and again in quality hybrid shaft designs.
