Noticed that many of the OEMs have stock shafts in Japan that are 30-40grams. Are any of these super light shafts available to buy, and which is the lightest?
Im looking for feather weighted shafts to build drivers for seniors. Might work to have a super light shaft, and light grip=lighter club with same swingweight=more clubhead speed for senior golfers.

You've got quite a few choices.

Bassara Hawk H43 is 47 and 48g for the quicker transition and tempo

Fujikura Rombax 4X07 is available in R3 R2 and R weighing 45, 47 and 48g

Graphite Design SL-4 is available in RR1 (senior) and weighs 47g

Axiv 4048 is Senior flex and 43g

and there are a few others.

Do you have the prices on those shafts?

Can I tip them a bit to make them stiffer if Im going to have the playing length at 45 or shorter? How much would they stiffen by tiping?

Well they are available in stiffer flexes at those weights as well.. I just put the softest flexes. The Bassara's are in the shop... as well as the Axiv, the others I'll add. (^_^)

Also figured that the Grafalloy ProLaunch is available in 45g, probably not that expensive.
