C-Taper S vs Project X 6.0

14 posts in this topic

So I 'm just wondering, I was told that PX 6.0 is basically between an S and X, thus an S+

But how about C-Taper S? Is it the same as PX6.0?

C-Tapers are built to help high launch, high spin players.  They feel softer than Project X.  KBS stiff is very similar to the PX 5.5. They both have a FCM (Frequency Coefficient Matching around 6.0).  Project X 6.0 would be the equivalent of a soft stepped KBS X from what I've read.

Interesting, I was reading an article and it seems that the C-taper S frequency is 6.3, thus 0.3 more than PX 6.0

And their S+ is like 6.8 and XS is 7.3 .

Well, I'm getting new irons with the C-taper S, let's see how my balls are, since I'm already a low to medium ball flight striker.

PX 6.0 = FCM 6.5 = DGX100 soft stepped once = KBS Tour S+

KBS Tour S = PX 5.5 = Rifle 6.0

Don't get over romanced by FCM. For me X100's feel smoother than PX 6.0s. C-Tapers feel pretty smooth. I can hit the CT-X about 8 yards further than the CT-S and they still felt great. Unfortunately they brought my 6-iron spin down to 5,300 or so. A little low for a 6-iron.

So I just got back from hitting the C-taper S flex... they feel weird. And I may be crazy but I think I gained 5-7 yard distance?

The shaft feels like soft plastic when I hit them, it doesn't feel solid like the PX 6.0 at all. Feels really damp and mushy.

Is this how C-tapers are supposed to feel? I have Wilson FG Tour V2 heads on them compared to my MP68 + PX6.0

Lots of things come into play with iron shafts. CT's take a bit of spin off the ball compared to DGs. That means they'll go further, but you run the chance of not holding greens. Don't go for the longest iron shaft, go with the most consistent shaft that you. An control and hold greens.

I'm going to hit them more soon and see. So far it seems that the frequency matched C-tapers have been very very consistent for me. Hell, I shot -4 on an executive course.

The non-frequency matched PX6.0 seems a bit more inconsistent...

I'm still unsure, I have to really test them both and compare for real.

So today I brought my MP68 + PX6.0 and FG tour V2 + C-taper S-flex to the range to test them side by side in terms of feel, trajectory and ball flight.

I have to say that the PX does give you that powerful feeling when you hit it and it produces a lower ball flight.

Funny thing is that my MP68 is 1/2 inch shorter than my V2 irons, yet I hit both 7i the same distance.

The PX has less carry, but more roll.

The C-taper shafts actually gave me a slightly higher ball flight. When I hit it, I can barely feel the ball at all. It's so soft.

I'm loving these shafts. Longer carry, and perhaps a couple of yards extra from time to time.

Honestly I'm surprised that I'm hitting the c-tapers higher than my PX6.0 as the C-Taper is supposed to be a lower ball flight shaft.

But yea, I'm loving them both... I wish C-Taper would come in Chrome and white pearl one day.

Where did you find that chart? Did you make that or is that posted somewhere?

Okay, I'm loving the C-tapers.... now the PX6.0 just feels too harsh for me, the C-tapers are so soft and good.

I hate to do this, as a long time PX user, but I think I may be moving to KBS totally...

I've played Project x, 6.0 shafts for the past 5 or so years. This year purchased a new set of Titleist 712, AP2's with KBS, C-Taper, Stiff shafts and I love them.

I hit my irons high and with a touch of a draw. I decided on the CT's in an effort to bring my ball flight down a touch. If I'm swinging well and consistently, they have done just that. Slightly lower ball flight, less spin, little more yardage and still holding the greens fine (I play a pretty fast home course - The Patriot Golf Club). Playing a ProV1x.

The PX shafts were stiff and relatively abrasive at impact. The CT's feel stiffer, but are smooth as butter if I hit it on the screws.

    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.  
    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      Try and get individuals to contribute.  If you have a hundred golfers each contributing a hundred dollars, that is 10,000$.  Easier sometimes than convincing a business to contribute say 5,000$.  The second thing is make it a fun family day with some events post the round.  Your spouse and kids will enjoy the day and you are more likely to spend some money.  Say a stall selling small knick-knacks or stuff for kids etc. Sad that you can get a stroke at 26, but why can't they figure out what is wrong with her anyway
