For the last year, I've been playing a G20 with a TFC169 D Tour Stiff. For fun, I picked up a Nike VR Tour with a Project X 6.0. Took both clubs to the range last night and noticed a big difference. With the Project X, I could feel the shaft bending on the downswing and then kicking through impact. I was hitting some bombs. With the TFC, I didn't feel much if any of that whip-release through the ball. Felt more like a bat hitting a baseball than a flexible stick transferring energy.
I think the shafts are relatively similar, more alike than different, spec-wise. So, can anyone help me understand what property of the Project X might allow me to flex it like that? I do like that feeling, though I've only had one range session so I can't say if it's playable. Ball flights with each were straight enough for me though.
As much as it means, the TFC is 63g with 3.9 degrees of torque. The Project X is 66g with 3.3 degrees.
I'll probably play the Nike for a while, but I'd like to understand what exactly it is I like about this shaft for future purchases.
