Iron steel shafts, Projext X 6.0 vs 6.5

8 posts in this topic

Anybody gone from 6.0 to 6.5 who can tell something about it? Lower ballflight? Distance? Spin? Very different? If you know your swingspeed please include it? And maybe what kind of sticks you use with 6.5?

I haven't but I would guess it would slightly lower ball flight and spin.

What is your swing speed? How high do you hit it?

I believe that i just half a flex stronger. So yea, slightly lower ball flight (SLIGHTLY), probably slightly heavier, and slightly less spin.

Distance, depends on your swing and contact. Going from 6.0 to 6.5 you wont probably see much difference. If 6.0 is really at the end range of your ability to load the shaft you might see a drop off, or you might see an increase.

Only thing was they did not have the PX 6.5 when I was trying different shafts.

What I also wonder if the KBS Tour XS will be like 6.5 or more like 7.0, that said, I did not really feel for the KBS Tour shaft. It feelt a little to smooth, I use it in my wedges in XS tough :)

Im sort of an strike I think. Really fast trasition from the top and down on ball. Hit my irons with the same swingstyle as in these movies! http://thesandtrap.com/t/73109/my-swing-dirtyzecret#post_961999 Looooooooooooog overswing, with brutal acceleration. This is why im also to. That PX will be better for me than other brands.

Try out the KBS C-Taper. A little more stout than the KBS tour

I have tried this, but feelt to smooth in impact. It was a very good shaft and certainly a whole different feel. Much smoother, and they went pretty low. Only is, I kind a like the "harc" impact from PX..

    • This is the interesting question.  If he hadn't been drinking, there should be no reason to refuse the breathalyzer.   Surely he's not stupid enough to tell a boldfaced lie in his statement that will easily be refuted.
    • Number one, I had no idea there was a free rules of golf app. Do you have to be a member of the USGA? Because i'm Canadian, and Golf Canada doesn't give us free anything besides a crappy quarterly magazine. I didn't have a current rules book with me, as I was forced out of the game for almost 3 years due to a workplace injury. I encountered a situation that had never happened to me before and asked a simple question. 
    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
