Recommended Posts

Anyone using,or tried this shaft and can share their experiences ?

 

What player profile/swing type is this designed to be suited to ?

Does it play to flex ?

Is it a smooth feeling shaft ?

Did it really drop those RPM numbers for you ?

 

etc etc etc

Send Joe Kwok (joey3108) a PM and he'll help fit you with the proper shaft. For what it's worth, I installed a Rombax in a Tour r7 and did not like it at all. I think the shaft plays slightly stiffer than flex and mine was an "X" tipped only a half inch.

I have a Rombax Proto 8021 in X flex, untipped in an R7 Tour 10.5. I am a low launch/high spin (bit unusual) player and this combo works great for me. I tested it on Titleist's launch monitor and it out-performed anything else the Science Van could throw at me. I have a quick transition with a bit of lag that results in the low launch angle, but with a higher lofted head this shaft really performs - and it is very tight dispersion wise. Just my $.02

I've tried it in 2 drivers..

 

1. J340.. I hit some of the longest drives in my life with this combo..it was just a test to see if I would like it...I did ofcourse..

 

2. FT-3... Honestly my swing went south when it was in this head.. I had some very good results, but I having a tough time with hitting off the heel.

Obviously not the shafts fault, but I have to change something. I may return to it again somtime soon in this head or another head.

 

My SS is around 105-110..high launcher and high spin player..and yes the rombax brought down my spin compared to the tipped 553 and Diamana 53x I was playing before. Dispersion is very tight, but the shaft retains it's smoothness.

 

I actually have one now in my fusion 3w...again my swing is struggling so I dont want to rush to any conclusions. My kasco with PM902x is treating me a little better so I'm playing that one right now.

Thanks for the replies so far............... :tongue:

 

Just tinkering with the idea that this shaft MAY suit me.Been suffering with high spin issues on my driver for a couple of years i guess,and im about to do something about it !!!!!

 

My SS is approx 114-118mph,very quick transition,possibly some lag,i get a good launch angle but always get pretty high spin (3500+ rpm).Im in the UK (bear in mind the weather + atmosphere here) and carry my driver from 250 yards to 265 yards maximum and as mentioned get very little run.

 

I feel that relatively i dont hit my driver nowhere near as far as my irons.Seen some great reports on this shaft relating to lowering spin-rates and also on the very quick recovery time and just pondering to myself if this shaft will suit my swing and he problems i have.......?????

I AM STICKMANS FATHER AND A 1 HDCP. I HAVE A REGULAR FLEX ROMBAX IN MY 905T AND IT PLAYS TRUE TO FLEX AND SMOOTH AND ACCURATE. I ALSO HAVE A SPEEDER 757 IN THE SAME COMBO AND SWITH OFF EVERY FEW ROUNDS. I FELT THE SPEEDER GIVES ME LESS BACKSPIN THAN THE ROMBAX AND IS ABOUT 5 YRDS LONGER ALTHOUGH YOU CANNOT BEAT THE SMOOTH FEELING OF THE ROMBAX. EXCELLENT AND ACCURATE AND I THINK THEY ARE COMING OUT WITH A 60 GRAM VERSION SOON.

Thanks for that - have read a few reports of the 757 climbing/ballooning if you chase one a bit or into the wind etc.Thats the only thing that worries me about it.In saying that isnt it the most "winnigest" shaft on Tour right now ????
