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?
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
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.
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.
