It's exciting times for the MyGolfSpy forums. We have multiple members who have been selected for Paderson driver shaft testing and along with that I will be looking at other club shafts by the company.
"KINETIXx" IMRT loaded shaft technologies are the worlds only golf club shafts that combine filament winding and table rolling construction methods with a vacuum curing process making Paderson KINETIXx loaded shafts. the most advanced, multi-structure, multi-material, precision tailored high performance composite shafts in the world!
KINETIXx IMRT = Visible fiber performance technology unlike any other shaft!
The tailored coupling of kevlar and 3K micro carbon fibers, filament wound over precisely located high modulus filament wound and or table rolled flag core sections, in select portions of every KINETIXx IMRT loaded shaft, demonstrate visible kite and dart quadrilateral patterns. Producing a visible rhombus web structure that's precisely tuned for vibration suppression, vibration control, EI (Energy Inertia), torque, feel and most important, kinetic energy transfer to the clubhead for the moment of impact creating a visible fiber chain that's comparable to a lightning rod of conductivity.
KINETIXx IMRT shafts, are the worlds only filament wound kevlar golf shaft technology family available for all clubs metal woods and irons. The green or blue kevlar and 3K woven chain of fibers visible in all Paderson KINETIXx IMRT branded shafts have 20x the elastic strength of steel!
The fiber revolution has arrived!"
Whereas table rolling is the most commonly practiced art of manufacturing graphite shafts, the process surfaces two very distinct disadvantages that manufacturers invariably compensate for ongoing; static and autoclave curing does not ensure the highest possible measure of consistency with regard to the flow of resin. controlling the ratio of fiber to resin is especially important in performance reliability.
Resin pooling, voids and fiber "washout" occur when resin coverage is limited. this inhibits fusion of internal flag layers. A controllable yet common occurrence with standard curing methods. this also exposes precious fibers to unnecessary cutting in the center-less grinding process conducted post production, necessary to ensure concentricity of the table rolled shafts outer diameter. Center-less grinding occurs in all table rolled shaft construction.
Static autoclave curing and center less grinding, combine to affect consistency, flex, performance, durability and feel, in even the most premium shafts marketed today.
Our proprietary vacuum curing processes creates a homogenous resin to fiber coverage ratio and more precise fiber area weight distribution over the entire shaft as compared to all other shafts marketed today. Minimizing the quantity of resin in each and every Paderson KINETIXx loaded shaft to maximize fiber performance.
Vacuum curing allows us to incorporate nobel materials in pre-preg sheet form for table rolled construction that shaft manufacturers have all previously struggled to optimize. Utilizing today's most advanced nanotechnology to produce stronger light weight shafts, with
demonstrably greater flexibility and faster recovery as found in KINETIXx VMT driver shafts. The world's only vacuum cured amorphous fiber golf club shafts.
Dealing with Paderson has been an unbelievable experience so far and like other forum members you don't just talk to anyone, you're in direct contact with the CEO, Jason Horodezky. Jason has been hands on with helping to find the perfect fit in shafts based on a series of questions related to my swing.
Visually these shafts are quite something in person. The woven patterns in the butt and tip sections are very sharp and the greenish/yellow color is quite pleasing as well. It doesn't stick out like a sore thumb in person as I imagined they would based on the hyped up saturation of their website photos.
Another nice feature is that Paderson runs a post-production partial tip prep to each shafts reducing much of the additional work required for builders.
Shafts were selected based on criteria of SS, AoA, quick transition and my desire for a smooth regular feel with stiff characteristics. Jason shot multiple emails with followup questions until we hammered things down.
These are the original questions I was presented with:
1. How fast are you with the Driver? Good swing range +/- 3mph.
99-102 2. Good swing, Attack Angle? + or - don't require specific #
+ 2.8 3. Hit from the top or Swing from the top?
My fitters tend to keep me in heavier shafts because of a "quick transition". 4. How Far do you carry a 5iron?
KVMT870-D30+ ~ 247cpm
63g - Torque 5.5Â°
This shaft fits at least 10cpm and in the case of LD 25-30cpm lower than "conventional" shaft with an SS phonetic flex classification.This is the worlds only vacuum cured amorphous shaft and full table rolled construction
KG860-D30 ~ 257cpm
72g - Torque 4.7Â°
The flagship construction technology loaded with KINETIXx IMRT = Visible fiber performance technology.
82g - Torque 3.5Â°
An inertially tailored fairway wood shaft and should be optimal for my quick transition swing.
82g - Torque 4.4Â°
Another of their KINETIXx IMRT = Visible fiber performance technology.
KB972 IRT20-2+ ~284cpm - 315cpm 4-PW
110g - Torque 2.0Â° - 1.3
Here they've pulled an upper 20 flex after noting my comments taking into consideration mass, the coupled affect with EI profile and overall playing characteristics of the KEVLAR iron shafts.
We're at the installation stage, so keep an eye on this thread as I will continue to update with reports of my experience.
