Default Picking a driver shaft

I just got a new driver head. XTD.
I need a shaft for it.
My driver is an RBZ stiff stock shaft.
Any suggestions on choosing a shaft similar to this for the XTD?

If you have a shaft you love just swap the tips on it, not too pricey at Golftown. If you are looking to buy a new shaft though I would advise looking at the Fujikura Pro aftermarket shafts, affordable and very very good. I got mine off Kijiji for $60 only and I prefer it to a bunch of other pretty pricey shafts I have.

If you like the shaft and it's a good fit for you, consider putting it in the new head.
Have the heads weighed , and adjust as required to so it plays as closely as it did.

If you need a new shaft, Diamondtour golf continually buys close outs of top quality , aftermarket shafts and has some nice shafts at good prices right now.

Your current shaft and adapter don't fit?

Unless I'm doing something wrong, $71 US for shipping via UPS for one shaft kills the deal for me

I've never looked at the shipping as I have things drop shipped to friends or US mailbox.

shipping rates have gone up but That sounds excessive.
They have great CS, perhaps give them a call. Pretty sure some other Canuks use them regularly.

Also I think they give a better prices for members of golf forums,such s golf buzz .com . that 89$ shaft is 79.
