TESTERS WANTED - PADERSON GOLF SHAFTS


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I am a level I RST golf instructor and I am currently playing a Callaway 10.5 degree Big Bertha Alpha 815 Double Black Diamond Driver with a Winn Dri-Tac standard grip with an MRC 2nd Generation Bassara E-Series 45 regular flex 44" shaft. I have a smooth swing.

 

My swing speed ranges from 105-115 with the driver. 

 

I normally launch the ball at 14 degrees with 2100 - 2300 spin rate for an average carry of 270 yards. 

 

I do have access to a launch monitor

TESTERS WANTED - APPLY NOW

 

We're looking for 12 MyGolfSpy Readers to test the PADERSON KINETIXx line of golf shafts. You may not have heard of PADERSON, but there's a far better than average chance that you've already played a shaft that the company designed and manufactured.

 

As usual, we're looking for readers who can put the shafts through their paces and be willing to write coherently about your experience and provide good quality photographs. Access to a launch monitor is preferred, and obviously we expect you'll do a thorough job comparing PADERSON performance to what's already in your driver.

 

I'll be updating this post with a bit more information about PADERSON, but until then, you should definitely take the time to read more about PADERSON's exclusive technology.

 

You can throw your name into the hat by replying to this thread and letting us know:

 

  • If you have access to a launch monitor.
  • Your driver swing speed (no need to exaggerate, we're looking for testers at all levels).

 

If selected, you'll be asked to fill out a fitting questionnaire (we want to get you a shaft that fits), but otherwise, that's it.

 

Good luck.

I have access to a launch monitor and I am 6'6" tall with an avg. swing speed of 105 but can go up over 110.  Looking for a low spin shaft is always a challenge.

Does anyone know when they will be choosing the 12? will it be posted here or just privately messaged? I am going to be on the Flight Scope for the next month and a half.

**May the fade be with you**

Thanks T - we'll look forward to it.

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.

What's the time frame you need for testing and write-up?  

 

I wouldn't want to commit to testing/reviewing anything unless I can actually play golf outside in South Dakota, otherwise I don't feel like I could provide an effective evaluation.  Conditions likely won't be playable until late March or early April here.

 

Are the shafts being tested only for driver, or will they be tested on irons/hybrids/wedges, as well?

 

I've mentioned this before but, swing speed low 80's, have a GC2 and indoor practice setup.

Hi,

My name is Zach Armstrong, and live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I'm 6 2" with a 3 handicap. I'm a long ball hitter with an average swing speed of 119, so it has been very challenging finding the right shaft for me, currently im gaming a Motore Speeder 7.2 Tour Spec X tipped 1 inch in a Nike Covert 2.0 Tour. I also have access to an indoor studio equipped with V1 and Foresight. I am also a club repair fanatic so I have plenty of driver tips. I hope there is a place for the long ball hitters in your test. Thank you.

Bummed I missed out on this one, but at the same time a little relieved that I don't have to tinker with an already fitted driver.  Congrats to everyone picked and I'll be watching for the results!

Wow! Well first off, thank you MGS and Paderson for graciously accepting me into the fold. I joined because of this contest and immediately got hooked on so much more.

 

The MGS community is top notch. I won't let you guys down. I will be able to test this against the speeder 57 and the Pro Launch Red. Can't wait to post the results and share my experience.

 

Thank you again,
