As you know, I have daily access to Launch Monitor....  Swing Speed this time of year is 99-101, but in the summer months moves up to the 105-109 range. I currently play the R9 SuperDeep TP with Mitsubishi Fubuki 63 stiff at 45".


I am currently in the market for new driver and shaft combo...

Yes I have access to a launch monitor and my swing speed is 98-105mph. Thank you, I would love to try your shafts, I have been struggling to find consistent equipment, and I need to zero in fitted equipment.

I would look forward to trying the Paderson Shaft.  I have access to a launch monitor and my swing speed ranges from 89 to 93 mph.  Finding time to test the shaft is no problem because I am playing 5 days a week in sunny Arizona.  I am presently playing a Titleist 913 D3 with an Aldila R.I.P. stiff shaft

I joined as a member today just so I could have the opportunity for this. I would love to test out these shafts and would enjoying writing a formal review.


Yes, I have access to a launch monitor.

Swing speed is ~115mph.

I have access to a track man and other facilities to log my data. My swing speed is around 118. I can install and grip the shaft myself and would be happy to write a review. . Looking forward to hearing numbers from this shaft either way.

After reviewing the 460cc 14Ëš SLDR this spring and finding it ultimately launch too high, I just this week picked up a 10.5Ëš SLDR 430cc to try out.  I have a few shafts lined up to run through the paces and would love to add this shaft to it as well.


I have access to a launch monitor.  Driver SS=97  My Mizuno Shaft optimizer numbers were 83,5,3,5,5 if that helps.

I'd love to give this a try.


I have access to trackman. My current driver is a Nike Covert 2.0 in the standard red kuro kage stiff shaft.


I've been recently looking to change the shaft for an Aldila tour green, so this might be perfect.


My SS is between 95-105. I'm looking for a more consistent flight, with tighter dispersion, and slightly less spin

I have access to said monitor, have a swing speed of 95 and my SLDR would love to take a spin with a new shaft in place.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I would love to test the shaft out. I have access to multiple launch monitors. I have all the equipment and tips necessary to shaft the club. Swing speed is 110-112 with driver. I look for the lowest launch and spin shaft possible.

Count me in. Would love to try in my new 915... could also drop in my G25 or SLDR.


My SS is in the 100 range and I have access to an outdoor monitor.


Thanks for the opportunity.

Wow, post a request for product testers and the brand new spies pour out of the woodwork!   You should do this more often to get people to post.


Seriously, long time poster and product tester here.   105 swing speed, currently gaming the Callaway tip adapter for the most part, but I test other heads and tips as well.  Testing some Rogue shafts as we speak.   I know my preferred specs and do light club building.  Can get access to Flightscope and GC2
