the thing about graphite shafts is that you can take all the properties that you measure for a shaft, and set them to specific numbers largely independent from one another compared to steel. this make

Whew.    Just couldn’t be any more short sighted. But I get that. In the type that has to see to believe too.   Injury can happen in the blink of an eye .  Mine was a sand wedge that stuck in red clay

I played Brunswick 7.0 in High School and College.  I switched to 6.5 flighted in the early 2000's and then to KBS Tour V later.   I had a wrist injury that I suffered in High School and never did any

It really wouldn't take much to mill the spud diameter of the hosel smaller and/or bore the ID of a graphite shaft to fit over the hosel.  What I don't understand is why remove a low torque steel shaft and replace it with a graphite shaft with higher torque...Maybe save 20 grams?

 

Have you seen the ID of these LAGP shafts? There isn't much space there the spud would have to be the size of a needle.

 

I'm wondering if there is possible a metal sleeve at the tip to fit over the spud and maybe some more carbon fiber just to reinforce that area. But I guess we need to wait and see.

Well worth it! All that added stability you were missing in your steel putter shaft!! 🙄 

Hey man, it's a feel thing.  Ain't nothing wrong with dropping 400 on a putter shaft.  I think you forget sometimes that we're all club hoes here.  😉

Pretty sure the LA Golf TPZ putter shafts are lower torque, stiffer and heavier then steel.

They are. It’s hard to convince folks though.  
 

There is now two worlds of graphite. Stock 80 gram stuff and then the serious stuff. The heavy serious stuff is absolutely stiffer and tighter than steel.  
 

this putter shaft is heavier , and less torque yet you can feel it release the head. 
 

Don’t be shocked when you see DJ with a set of LA in his irons too. Might be after this coming winter. But I’d bet he tests them .

the thing about graphite shafts is that you can take all the properties that you measure for a shaft, and set them to specific numbers largely independent from one another compared to steel. this makes graphite objectively superior to steel in every way imaginable, since you can make a graphite shaft that is 100% identical to steel, numbers-wise, except say it can also have lower torque, plus it will dampen vibrations, and be better for your joints. That's just the beginning, and you can go way further than that.

 

yes, there are still limits to what you can do with all of the measured numbers due to the technology available today, but within the next decade, we will probably be able to manufacture wild stuff, like torque ratings below 1.0 with a regular 80g iron shaft, or a 38g extra stiff driver shaft with a torque rating of 1.5. the possibilities are absolutely endless, and you simply can't do that with steel shafts, because at the end of the day, you can only do so much with steel. "graphite" shafts are made with innumerable different materials woven in wildly different ways, and we've arrived at the point where pros are starting to realize how much better these shafts can be than steel.

 

sorry for the book, but if you couldn't tell, I'm a bit passionate about composite shafts.

take lessons to stop hitting it fat

Not at all wanting to argue , because you just have to see it to believe it. But an injury to my elbow forced me into a set . The MMT 125TX is cpm equivalent to px 7.0 with lower torque and near identical weight (3 grams less on average ) and it’s just impossible to explain how tight the dispersion is . They simply do not what to curve . The biggest adjustment is in aiming points and trust.  
 

that’s why I said above that there are two graphite worlds right now.  The light weight  stock stuff that is still a bit loose. And the newer LA golf , Fujikura MCI, or Mitsubishi MMT heavyweight stuff that is absolutely as stable as can be.  The poster above is right. In 10 years you’ll see composite thats 80 grams but less torque that anything , and youll see composites all over tour players bags.  It’s coming.   No doubt in my mind. 

Did you play PX prior to MMT?
