Questions on Apollo Hump

- I have seen these shafts around for a long time, but could never figure out what exactly the hump back is supposed to do. What do these shafts feel like? How do they compare distance wise to other steel shafts? What is the recommended swing speed for the R version? How is their shock absorption? What type of player benefits from these shafts?
The purpose of the hump is to stabilize the tip section. It is an unusual shaft that you can't compare to any other shaft on the market. The shaft overall is soft as measured in a frequency analyzer or deflection devise, but with a very stiff tip. Who it benefits might depend upon the head you are pairing with, but I would consider it an anti-left shaft (for a right handed golfer). For some, it reduces the ball flight as well. There is no internal shock dampening. It is a lightweight shaft which will have some influence on the player's swing speed and tempo. As far as speed, the R-flex would be fine for a player who hits their 7-iron in the 140-155 yard range depending upon the player's tempo.
