Try ok lah don't buy unless necessary. Many a times it's just impulse buy
You actually quite right about it. Impulsive buy!
I got the rocketbladez becoz it's cheap...$1650 for 2 sets, for my wife and myself. As compared to xhot irons....
Do you like the C-Tapered shaft?

Cheap? We always want cheap but how cheap is cheap? Recently my friend got a set of legacy black in bkk after all the discount and tax rebate it come out to abt $700 and best of all it come with a cart bag. Cheap? The next day we went to a dept store we saw le coq on sales, the cart bag is $200 after discount. Cheap?

Yes.... Liking it.
But i am also getting a golf elbow; don't its becoz of this c-tapered shaft, or over exerting at the range becoz I never had that when I was on my x-20. The rocketbladez irons are definitely heavier in term of weight and swing weight...

Rocketbladez is the loft is much stronger than x20. If your x20 is on nspro950. You'll definitely find c taper heavier

I know golf stuffs are just forever depreciating equipment.

C-Taper has much lower torque and offers penetrating ball flight ... U prolly exert more force whilst using the C-Taper shaft because u might be experiencing shorter distance versus using NSPRO 95 shafts ... Laughing

Actually not true, I am getting longer distance on my rocketbladez. The c-taper 90 surprisingly doesn't feel stiff like what a rifle shaft should be... Maybe it could also be the stronger loft and also newer technology like the speed pockets which punch my ball further...

Is the C-Taper 95 available as aftermarket shaft? Or is it specially made for TM RBZ irons?

The C-Taper 90 is only available on the Rocketbladez. Supposedly weighs only 90gm as compared to the aftermarket C-Taper which weighs at least 110gm
But I can't find the specification go these C-Taper 90 shafts online.

KBS has a new shaft called C-Taper Lite which is 105g & 2.2 deg torque for R-Flex ...

I read here and there online that the X hot irons look significantly aged after a couple of months. Anyone had the same experience?
