Played 9 holes with my new Supertri / Kajiki shaft......here is the report.

Well, nothing exciting... really.......hit 2 out of 7 fairway.
But to be fair it's no faults of the shaft, I do see great potential in it.

I did not load on the shaft, just using my usual swing with the corrected set up.
Overall the club head looks "shoik" at set up and weight well balanced.
Upon impact, the feel is very good...very solid ("the tittleist feel") no hint of vibration.
My launch angle ( low) problem solved, thanks to Eric for the corrected set up.
Dispersion/distant ratio is excellent - I think this is the most critical part of the shaft.
Did I achieve my 20 meters objective?..........oh ! not yet.
There was a 5-10 meters increased ( without extra effort) but I am not too sure this is due to the new set up, the club head or the shaft....or all the combination.

Preliminary conclusion:
The Kajiki has excellent dispersion control, solid feel and a nice kick.
Has it, reach my expectation? Not yet..... Is the money well spent?....Not yet
It is too early to pass judgement....but I believe it has great potential.

Stay tuned

Excellent report!!! True to objective and unbiased... Not to mention adding more poison By mentioning 5-10 meters with no extra efforts...

I think 20 meters extra distance is asking a lot just from a new driver/shaft for a good golfer as yourself. For a beginner golfer using totally incorrect shaft and loft I see this as a possibility

I would also love to hit it 20 m longer. It aint gonna happen unless I get in the gym and get stronger and also improve my leverage and technique.

Knowing your swing I think the focus should be on your cupped left wrist and increasing the leverage/lag/smash factor/store up. Hard to do with a cupped left wrist.

This is my second 9 holes with the Supertri/Kajiki combo.
Hit 5 out of 7 fairways and improvement from 2/7 in the last 9 holes.
It is confirmed, there was 5- 10 meters improvements! (could be more)
In fact I hits 3 very long, straight and fairway splitting shots.
I have not load the shaft yet, as I am trying to grove my new set up.
The launch angle was beautiful.
Was it because of the shaft? the head? or my new set up? I don't really know.....
Perhaps I should take an old driver and try it with my new set up.

So stay tuned.....

P.S. the day when I load the shaft I will let you all know!

Today I semi loaded my driver.
Trying to add a little more power to it.
But surprisingly the distant did not improve, suspect the quality of impact is not there.
Hit 5 out of 7 fairways, which in Keppel is not really that bad.
But somehow today's drive is not that shiok.
......Just have to let the shaft run in.....

Supertri/Kajiki combo report.

Tested a "run in" Kajiki firm shaft for 18 holes.
Did a full load on the shaft, hit 11 out of 14 fairways.
Not really that bad for keppel - blue tee and tight fairways.
2 of the bad drive was due to experimental swing.
Shaping of shots was excellent thanks to the consistent torque?
6 shots was shaped according to plan.
There is also a marked improved in distants( at least 10m) without affecting dispersion.

Conclusion:
Feel: 4 Stars
Dispersion: 5 Stars
Distant: 3 Stars
Stablity(Post impact vibration): 4 Stars

So, is the money well spent?
Based on TM vs Kajiki, I should think so.
But more importantly credit should be given to BFG for investing on the Track Man,
that give very objective statstics rather than guessing.
This is phscologicaly important to golfer as they will never have to doubt.

The above assesment is based on my personal opinion and must not be taken as promoting of company or products.
