My Paderson Test Shaft has Arrived!


Recommended Posts

Butt cut - got it - that's the word I was looking for - thanks.

I wanted to start off with the shaft cut at the "stock" 46" length, but I'll probably get it cut to match the Fujikura EXS that I've been using sometime next week.

 

If I can manage to control the Paderson at 46" as well as I do the other shaft, that will be great but if not, then it's a more accurate comparison to match the shaft length I'm used to, anyway.

 

I've been gone most of the day and have to be away for most of the next couple of days, so I won't really be able to spend as much time as I'd like until the weekend.

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.

I'm cutting it to exactly match the other three I'm testing which are all at the same length, and I've bought a second head to facilitate simultaneous comparisons.  (That's the advantage of still using an old head, spares cost nothing.)  Apples to apples comparisons will probably be more useful, even if ideally the shaft might be better suited at a different length.

I'm using the 913 D2 as my "Apples to Apples," since I have 2 adapters for it and wasn't using the stock Bassara shaft anymore.  Made sure the fitter had the installation instructions when he installed the shaft but didn't remember I'd had the Fujikura cut down until I got home and compared the shafts side by side...

 

If I'm lucky, I'll be able to control the Paderson as-is, this weekend.  Anyway, now that I've noticed it, I'll match the length anyway, just to get the data to compare with the shafts at equal lengths.

hckymeyer, do you have your pure grip logo down too? I see it's in line with their branding.

I'm curious, what length is everyone going with?

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Honestly? I have no idea, I just made it the same as my other shaft. I never actually measured it after the trip to The Kingdom. I should probably put that on the to do list...

My ProLaunch Red is 45.5 so I am going to match that. I believe the SLDR Speeder 57 shafts are 45.5 as well.

The graphics and the weave pattern are SICK, I am going neutral on the grip so it doesn't take away from that. Got to show it off.

Has anyone compared the shafts to their current one? My current shaft was ordered from PING at 45 1/4" and the new shaft is at least 2 inches longer than that? I too was planning on having the shaft cut to match my current one, but I'm worried cutting that much off of the butt of the shaft could be an issue?

I'm matching my gamer.  I have a third shaft I'm throwing in the mix too.  All 3 will be the same length.  One less variable.

Most uncut driver shafts are 47" and should be butt cut to length.  I cut mine down to play at 45" and have no issues.  I also have driver shafts that I've cut to play anywhere from 43.5"-46".  Swingweight is the only issue you get into, but that has nothing to do with the shaft itself.

I am taking mine to have it cut and glued, but out of curiosity what kind of saw do you use to cut a graphite shaft?
