|Subject: PX Satin vs C Tapers Tue Nov 01, 2011 12:55 pm|| |
Just wondering if anyone out there has tried the PX Satins and how does it compare to the C Tapers?
I am using KBS now which helps my ball get in the air... But I feel that it has too much spin and causes my ball to balloon... Also feel my yardages bit off...
Thinking of changing back to the PX Satins or the C Tapers

Can't comment on the PX satins as i've never tried them, but what i can say is that the C-Tapers are very different from the KBS Tour shafts. The C-Tapers definitely have a lower, more penetrating ball flight which i guess is what you're looking for. KBS Tour and 90 ballooned madly for me and i lost distance as a result. I'm a naturally high launch, high spin player by the way.
Edit: Should also add that the C-Tapers play slightly stiffer to flex. If you normally use an S flex shaft, you might be better off with R+ or S soft-stepped in the C-Tapers. Generally speaking of course, ideal would be to let a good clubfitter make an assessment.

Miss Lee, the KBS to me is high but it goes long. The C-Taper is launching lower with lower spin, got problem stopping the ball on the green. But I do agree that it plays stiffer, so consider half or even a full flex softer than what you usually play.
PX satin... First I thought it would be comparable to the C-Taper, apparently it is not. A buddy of mine found that he cannot hit the C-Taper at all because he doesn't have a steep AoA, a.k.a. A sweeper. We found that you really need to compress the ball to play the C-Taper, while the PX satin is not so extreme. My Dad, who does not have a steep AoA still loves the PX.
On a side note, I am playing the True Temper Monaco lately with great result. Maybe it's time to hang around the den and ask the Master formsome advice.
