Would love to test the new Paderson shaft!

I am currently writing an article titled "Why Every Golfer Needs to Be Custom Fit" and am visiting 5 different shops in Minnesota to go through their fitting processes.


I've been able to gather data for dozens of different head/ shaft combinations and would be able to compare the Paderson shaft with many of the currently popular brands.


I would put the shaft on a 2013 model Callaway head and have the shaft professionally installed to assure consistency with the clubs I would be comparing it to.


Sounds like they have the technology to be the next big thing in shafts - comparisons like this could prove it. 


This article will be shared with over 30,000 local subscribers and 6,700 facebook fans so it would be great exposure for Paderson, too.

Thanks for the opportunity.


My driver swing speed is 105-108 and I do have access to a launch monitor.

Wow! Lots of new people with launch monitors and nice ss. Welcome to MGS.


Doesn't look like there will be any senior testers. :(



I'm a senior by the golfing definition and at select retailers.  I certainly don't have anything approaching many of the swing speeds reported here.  Of course lots of guys on tour don't either. :)  I'm like clock work between 90-95 depending upon the particular monitor.  I'll only vary about 3 degrees or so per swing on the monitor du jour.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I would love to be able to test one out. Currently I am gaming an X-Stiff Fujikura Tour Spec VC 6.2. I have access to Flight Scope at the place I would have it assembled. My swing speed is around 110 mph.

I have Flightscope X2 and 50 shafts to compare with on an R1 head.  Swingspeed is 108.  I have grips, can reshaft, and have adapters for TM, Titleist, Callaway, Cobra, Ping, and Nike.  Would love to compare to my stock of Fuji, Accra, UST Mamiya, Project X and Grafalloy.

I have access to launch monitors. My swing speed averages 80 mph.  Have extra tips for new shafts in my Adams Super S driver.

Well, let's see.  I have a VoiceCaddy SC100 if that will do for the launch monitor.  My swing speed is between 105 - 110 mph (depends on how many Wheaties I had for breakfast).  I do my own club work, so installation is no problem, and I play/practice approximately 4Xweek out here in semi-sunny CA.  I'm always looking for a good shaft to fit my swing.
