The Tensei and Kuro Kage shaft options are way better than the Speeder and the HZRDUS. Both have ratings of 99% for radial integrity at full torque meaning they retain their 'roundness' through the swing and for the full length of the club. 

Only 1 brand of shaft beats that across the board and they cost £250 each..... yes you guessed it... the Oban Kiyoshi line

I don't want to get into an off topic discussion about shafts, but having used all the shafts you mention, in my opinion, you can't generalise that one shaft is "better" than another? - All the ones you mention are at the top end of the market - In my own case I didn't get on with the Tensei or KK shafts but did get on well with the Speeder & Hzrdus (& still do) - I've also had a number of Oban shafts (Devotion & Kiyoshi) but I went on to find something mainstream that worked better for me - Fitting is the key here - Find somewhere with a good range of shafts to try (not easy in the UK?) or pick up the shaft(s) you want to try on the used market ...

Well, it isn't me that say they are better, the Golf Shaft Directory states that they are..... I'm not arguing with the directory used by club fitters...

The Accra shaft I played a few years back is the best I’ve ever hit. So there :p

Nice looking pics MPX :)

The GSD is a basic comparison tool at best and only used by some fitters....

(Un)fortunately there is no database/tool/calculation that can determine the 'best' shaft for ANY individual golfer.Getting fit is the only way to determine that and more often than not the results will surprise you. Manufacturing specs/tightness, $$ costs don't say anything about the performance of a particular shaft for a golfer. All it might do is increase the possibility of the specs two individually produced shafts matching.
