The Mitshubishi Grand Bassara shaft on the EPIC Star driver is a truely premium and responsive shaft. This EPIC club is beautiful and the shaft makes it worth the extra cost. I recently saw the club on CallawayPreowend and picked one up. I hit it straight but a little high. My wife asked to try and she hit this club so good that I knew I wasn't gettting it back. This is her new favorite club :-). After a recent 9 holes I've never seen her hit a drive so good (accurate and far). And I must say she has tried all the drivers on the market. The Epic Star is the best driver on the market for her!
