Hi guys and ladies, new to the site but not to golf, does anyone have any info on the flex of an Apollo #1 Custom Made Lite Weight Frequency Matched, as stated on the shaft band, found on a Petron tournament model C431 Lite Weight blades, circa I guess 1998/99, any info would be appreciated, kind regards Steve

Well I think it may be hard to really know because every brand has their own system of what's considered Regular/Stiff/X-Stiff. What is regular in one brand may be stiff in another. However I do believe IIRC the Apollo shafts frequency matched are based on the concept that the higher the frequency in a shaft pattern the more 'stiff' the shaft will be. So when you ask 'What is the flex' I guess the question would be 'compared to what?'. Sorry I'm probably not much help. But welcome to TST and I'm sure some others will chime in and give you a better answer. Cheers!

Cheers Vinsk, I appreciate your input, it's a difficult one as the info I had came from a 3rd party, I took the chance and bought them as I fell for the classic  lines(bit of a blade freak), I'll pull the shafts if I have to and fit R400 or a rifle shaft once I find out the tip size, kind regards Steve

    • Good to hear.  My parents got theirs yesterday.  It seems like it really reduces stress to get that done. I’m young and healthy so I’m not chomping at the bit.  
    • Got our shots tonight. Moderna vaccine and already scheduled for the follow up shot. Man, but they had things dialed in. Very slick operation and all went well. Many thanks to the folks around the country working these clinics! Except... major side effect! When I went in I had a full head of dark brown hair and when I got home and looked in the mirror imagine my surprise when I saw that what was left of my hair was grey!  Ha! Seriously, no side effects from this shot for me - not even a sore arm!
    • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) A strange movie. Kind of hard to follow along too. Overall, a good dark thriller. I give it a tap in par. 
    • This is what I do as well. When I focus just on the ball, or a dimple on the ball, or a blade of grass, my takeaway gets funky, or more so than usual, and my swing gets all out of sync. 
    • I rarely ever play an extra ball.  if I am on top of the group in front of me and it is open behind me I may go back and replay the hole but that is rare. My preference is to get a true score. The course is to play, the range is for practice.
