C Taper Lite Alternatives

Very disappointed to be asking this question, because I really like the performance of the CTaper Lite. Really like it.

 

But over the past month, I’ve had two shafts dent in mysterious ways (mid shaft dents, no idea how that could happen). If this persists...I’ve got to find a new model to love.

 

Is there a similar Steelfiber?

 

Anything else with similar characteristics?

Wow. I’ve used C-taper lites for two years. Never had anything like that happen.

I typically play PXI 6.5 but just got a new set with CTL S. They don't feel identical but they perform very similarly and have similar weights. For me, they are far more anti-left than the DG style shaft without the boardiness of PX or CT. I get good numbers with PX and CT but I hate the feel. The extra stiffness and weight tend cause problems in the consistency of my transition. The lighterweight versions of these shafts seem to work quite well.

If you really want to move away from CTL's and also KBS, then the Modus or the PX LZ would be good choices. Like the previous posters, I have had CTL's in 2 different sets and never an issue.

I have C Taper Lite 105s in my JPX 900 Tours and can swap sets with the following shafts without feeling 'different' (YMMV):

Ping CFS Regular, Project X95 5.5, Project X PXi 5.5

 

If you play the 110s or the 115s maybe the equivalent of those would work for you.

I like lighter regular/reg plus shafts in my irons for whatever reason, while playing stiff in hybrids and woods.

Tried a bunch of composite/graphite shafts Steelfibers, Fujikuras, USTs, and none I could easily swap in/out.

I also liked the C-Tapers, but the durability was abysmal.

Mine did bent to a visible degree at the hosel, or even broke at the hosel.

 

Since I switched to the Nippon Modus 120 I have a even better feeling shaft, and no issues.

 

You may also try the Modus 105.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
