Anyone have any idea? I currently play modus 105 stiff straight in. If anyone could tell me what stiff straight in equals on the rifle scale as well as soft steppe 1x it would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you referring to the 2011 New and Improved Shaft Chart from here on GolfWRX?



    That comparison chart used the CPM measures from measuring oscillations of the shaft anchored at the butt. Basically, it doesn't tell the full picture of the shafts, as Howard Jones explains: http://www.golfwrx.c...0#entry18340002



    Nowadays shafts get measured at several points from butt to tip. Miyazaki, for example, developed a four-digit International Flex Code which does this.


    [color=rgba(38, 38, 38, 0.8)]The [/color]International Flex Code[color=rgba(38, 38, 38, 0.8)] is a four number sequence. [/color][color=rgba(38, 38, 38, 0.8)]The numbers represent the stiffness of each of the four sections of the shaft: butt, mid-butt, mid-tip, and tip. The numbers range from 0 to 9, with 0 representing a very soft section and 9 representing XX-Stiff.[/color]

    [color=rgba(38, 38, 38, 0.8)]The beauty of this system is that it allows golfers to learn precisely what they like and need. Miyazaki offers a tremendous variety of profiles, so golfers can experiment with balanced, “flat” profiles (5555), butt-stiff/tip-soft profiles (7552), butt-soft/tip-stiff profiles (5689) or anything in between.[/color]





    A couple of years ago Miyazaki had a web link which explained the code, but that URL has been deactivated.

    Thanks for the responses fellas. I was looking for something like the 2011 New and Improved Shaft Chart from here on GolfWRX. That seems the simplest to understand for a guy like myself.

    That's a big part of the problem, it does seem simple but that simplicity comes at the expense of any actual accuracy or usefulness of those numbers as it applies to how they will actually perform or feel to the player.
