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.

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

      PADERSON Premium Graphite Shafts

       
      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.
       
      About Paderson
      "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!"
       

       
      Vacuum Cured
      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.
       
      First Impressions
       

       
      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.
       
       
      The Shafts
       
      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?
      180
       
      Drivers:
       

       
      KVMT870-D30+ ~ 247cpm
      63g - Torque 5.5°
      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 4.7°
      The flagship construction technology loaded with KINETIXx IMRT = Visible fiber performance technology.

       
      Fairway Wood:
       

       
      KG495-F30 ~257cpm
      82g - Torque 3.5°
      An inertially tailored fairway wood shaft and should be optimal for my quick transition swing.

       
      Hybrid:
       

       
      KB972-HUT30 ~280cpm
      82g - Torque 4.4°
      Another of their KINETIXx IMRT = Visible fiber performance technology.

       
      Irons:
       

       
      KB972 IRT20-2+ ~284cpm - 315cpm 4-PW
      110g - Torque 2.0° - 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.
