How do these play to flex?

I'm after one to try in the TEE. I've seen one at a good price but it's reg flex. I play the ProLaunch in stiff, so how much softer will it be?

These ones worked out the flex issue a little more than the TT, but it still plays a little soft to flex imo.

Thanks so I need the Stiff then.

What's the ball flight like with this shaft and how much carry/roll do you get compared to a normal shaft with same kick point?

Personally, I would avoid these all together. Far better out there for the same money.

I find they just fly, it really does lower your spin rate, had it tested before and after and brought mine down (which was sorely needed). I found it kept a faily penetrating flight, but stayed in the air a little longer.

Yep, until it snaps. Huge breakage issues with these.

Really Lyle? Ive been playing mine for about 6 months now and have had no issues at all?

I know of 4 other players and not one of them either have had issues?

And I dont think Bubba is having too much difficulty with it either;)

Bubba goes through about 20 of these a year from what I have heard.
I have had 4 broken ones in my shop and this is a city of 100,000 people.

What would you recommend for simlar £££'s

I prefer mid or low kick point shafts?

Lyle- Where on these shafts have the breakages been generally. Couldnt say id be surprised by the amount of shafts Bubba goes through, but no matter what the shaft would be how hard he swings.

MG- Give this thing a try man, its money imo. And has lasted me.
