    TPT Shaft Review

    Great review. I wonder if Club Champion would have fit James into the shaft that was given to him. I also wonder how he would have managed with the 15 shaft versus the 16. These shafts seem to gain more and more steam on tour.

    Great review James! axial consistency - making the bend repeatable in the manufacturing process - I wonder if this is different from other OEMS? Great to see that you going to a lighter weight shaft you still had the accuracy and dispersion. I'd be interested in the 16 MKP MT SW. $499 is a real pricepoint though, interesting it's fallen in half, very curious to try.

    I oft wonder this myself.

    That said, numbers don't lie for what I've seen, and I really don't want sub 2400-2700 spin for my needs.




    Thanks for reading all. If it's any consolation, it's staying in the driver.

    Is there an EI type profiling for these shafts? Butt/mid/tip stiffness?
