My Paderson Test Shaft has Arrived!


Recommended Posts

Didn't you get the email about the delay in posting the unboxing and initial impressions stuff because of the snow and ice across the Midwest? I sent my write up in. I'm sure they are waiting on everyone to be able to get theirs done before posting all of them.

 

I haven't received an email about what to do next. I'm assuming that we'd want real LM comparisons and on course use impressions and the ther is usually a final follow up about six weeks or so down the line. I really shouldn't be toting with the loft on my driver but this shaft launches so high that I think I need to loft down to be consistent. Drive after drive looked the same today on the range.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

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'm so stupid!!!!!!   I went to take the picture that Mr. Theo requested and realized that the screw was still in the sleeve. So without the screw it fits perfectly and we are good to go here. I h

Thanks Rev, she's definitely the "better half" and I'd be lost without her!   We're finatlly getting back to "normal" now, but it was quite a fright.

We're waiting until everyone is ready to go. Should have the thread up tomorrow.

Guys I have to say that I'm not sure. I know he was very careful with the tip after reading the instructions from Paderson. Is there anything you all suggest I tell him. Other than spining, which I'm now eerie about bc of this guy, his work has been impeccable.

Why would you get him to spine the shaft? When I first hit Paderson I asked the same question. I was told logo always goes down

Apologies I mistyped. Jason told me to align the shaft logo down bc that gave it the strongest wall of the shaft in the bend point. To me that meant it would be spine aligned. I'm no club builder so sorry to misspeak.

No reason to say sorry man. Hope you can finally get adaptor set up and really test it

Were we not supposed to send our LM and course impressions in already?   I've sent them all in and I keep logging in every day to see the compiled results post, or at least the unboxing impressions.

Nothing would make me happier than having course impressions. Nothing. But, ice. So no dice. Still. I'm going crazy

So Donnie the LD guy is going to have graphite in his irons and wedges?  I guess my tour performance fitter was right.  He told me that at least 1/3 of the PGA tour would be bagging graphite by 2020.

I elected to go with the Kevlar blue iron shafts at 110g. The driver shaft has given me an advantage, I want that same advantage throughout the bag. The iron shafts are supposed to be the roundest on earth and that should make them more stable. I'll know in a few weeks. I'll be testing them side by side against my current set up using my es14

I'm very interested in your reviews of these shafts, as I'm considering the switch to graphite myself.

 

I AM curious why you chose the Kevlar Blue, since the Kevlar Blue shaft I initially got for the driver shaft review didn't fit me and I should receive my Kevlar Green shaft tomorrow.

I don't have the crazy speed that Donnie does, but this was a 3i shot with a Paderson Kevlar Blue iron shaft. This was a controlled swing, I got some out in the mid 270s when ripping at it. Needless to say, I'll never be going back to steel.

For comparison what was typical when you had a steel shaft in it?

I gotta agree with the graphite iron shaft sentiment.  They are so good now that dispersion is NOT an issue.   Weight tolerances are excellent as well.  Swingweighting is a breeze.

Distance wise, on the FlightScope, I was around 235 carry, 250 total with steel.  These shafts are 20gm lighter and my SS is up about 4mph on the average.  I can tell you that I have played one round with these shafts and I flew it pin high on a par 5 from 225 uphill on a 40* day with my 4i, so it's not just obscene LM distance, it translates to the course.  I can't wait until it's actually warm.

Thanks for the feedback!

 

I know in my case, the Kevlar Blue was initially sent to me based solely on swing speed.  I've got a pretty aggressive transition.  I'm sure once I get some data gathered on the Kevlar Green on my driver, Jason and I can determine what model Paderson shaft I should consider for hybrids/irons.  I'll probably stick with the Genius shafts in my SCORs, for now anyway.

The Kevlar green iron and wedge shafts will be replacing the Kevlar blue. The only difference in these are the colors, unlike the drivers and fairway woods. I went off of Jason's recommendations on what we discovered with my driver shaft. I hope to one day, fly out to California and work side by side with Paderson to come up with the absolute best fitting! I don't think it can get much better, but I am in search for perfection and I am sure with Jason's knowledge of both head/shaft combination I could get there.

Any idea on the other iron shaft? The nickel one I think? Is it the same shaft as well? I know the weight was a gram heavier
