My Paderson Test Shaft has Arrived!

Recommended Posts

I just got my replacement (Kevlar Green) shaft delivered on Friday and was able to hit with it for the first time this morning.

 

All I'll say for now is, it's a MUCH better fit for me!! ;)

Yeah!

I'm assuming most of us are waiting on more data and will put it in the reviews.  Personally I have a dilemma...Just got a Titleist 915D3 and now I'm debating if I continue testing with the SLDR or pick up a Titleist tip and start testing with that.  I'm leaning towards taking out the SLDR heads and having a shoot out.

Same problem here hckymeyer. I just got an 8* Sldr that I'm wanting to try out but I'm going to try and hold off until either I'm done testing or I will only hit that driver on days where I don't swing my current gamer.

I played two rounds this past weekend and had to use the 915, it was the shiniest tool in the shed so to speak.  I really liked the way it set up and hit some very nice drives.  I don't feel like it was any longer than my SLDR though. 

 

Hoping to get out Friday again and I plan on taking both SLDR's with me.  I have a 9 (set to 10) and 10.5 (set to 11).  Diamana in one and Paderson in the other.  I'll hit both drivers on every tee and then swap shaft/heads at the turn and see what happens.

Seems like you have it figured out man. All I can comment on so far is feel. I love the feel of this shaft. Haven't gotten enough time with it yet to say more.

I still have more testing to do, but so far the Paderson is continuing to impress me, particularly with the feel and consistency.

I get my baby back from my club guy today. He just got back from Traverse City so it's been sitting in his house after he put the adaptor back on with 24 hr epoxy. Headed STRAIGHT to the range after work.

I'm liking the irons, loving hybrid and FW but not overly impressed with either driver shaft so far. No trackman data yet, but suspect I'm losing a few yards. Swing Caddie tells me my swing speed is up with the heavier shaft, but it just seems like it's losing energy at impact.

Swing caddie isn't the most reliable machine with a driver. Irons and wedges it works great. I am ordering the heavier NI driver shaft soon. I believe this will be the best shaft for me with a faster swing. Thinking it will help tempo and increase fairways hit. The most accurate of shafts as well as one of the longest was around 92 grams. I'll know if this is the same for me soon

Loving the hybrid shaft so far. That may be a product of having it shorter where I don't struggle to hit it. But the data I'm getting says its at least as good as the Fuji I had in it at a longer length. Hope to get on the range to see some actual ball flight soon

the only thing in my bag I don't have paderson in now is my hybrids.  In time, I will have these all Paderson as well.

      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.
