Paderson Kinetixx Driver Shaft Review

Paderson Kinetixx Driver Golf Shafts

Paderson Golf Shafts is a name that has been making some significant waves in the aftermarket golf shaft area for a couple of years now. Most golfers haven’t heard about what this company can offer but those in the know are starting to realize that this company is bringing something new to the table. Paderson has been producing graphite shafts for almost 30 years, R&D on the KINTIXX line started in 2008.

In addition to the catalog of shafts, there is an in depth discussion of their technology and manufacturing process which I am not going to repeat here with one exception. All but a few of Paderson’s shafts are filament wound. They are one of a very few companies that have this manufacturing technology. This video copied from their site illustrates the process.

Most carbon fiber shafts are made by rolling sheets of material over a mandrel. Paderson ‘spins’ a weave of carbon fiber ribbon over the mandrel. This gives them the unique ability to tension the fiber during the weaving process.

Paderson Kinetixx Fairway Shaft Review

Paderson Kinetixx Fairway Golf Shafts

Paderson makes a full line of filament wound carbon fiber shafts. They tension Kevlar ribbon during winding, a unique construction in the golf shaft business. To most of us, Kevlar is a material we associate with bullet proof vests, but as you will see in this Wikipedia article, it has a wide range of use. Many of them sports related. It is a high strength, low weight fiber. Paderson is not the only company to use Kevlar in golf shaft construction, but I am told they are to only company that can tension it during application to the mandrel, owning the patent for the process.

Paderson offers a range of tension wound Kevlar fairway shaft weights and profiles. A great matrix of designs for a fitter to work with. The catalog price of $150 puts in at the low end of the range for premium shafts. Lets take a look at the measurements of this very wide range of products.

Paderson Kinetixx Iron Shaft Review

When I asked Jason Horodezky for review samples I did not understand just how many shaft Paderson is making. Fortunately he did not send me one of each SKU as I requested, but he did send me the largest, heaviest box of samples I have ever received. At the speed I measure, it was at least 40 hours in the shop in between fitting, building and editing video from the PGA show. Iron shafts span 6 different profiles is various weights and flex’s. To see the range of shafts offer by Paderson, visit their website, Padersonshafts.com.

In addition to the catalog of shafts, there is an in depth discussion of their technology and manufacturing process which I am not going to repeat here with one exception. All but a few of Paderson’s shafts are filament wound. They are one of a very few companies that have this manufacturing technology. This video copied from their site illustrates the process.

Most carbon fiber shafts are made by rolling sheets of material over a mandrel. Paderson ‘spins’ a weave of carbon fiber ribbon over the mandrel. This gives them the unique ability to tension the fiber during the weaving process.

When you scroll through catalog of shafts on the Paderson site you will count 12 models in multiple flexes. I did not even put a dent in that array but measured enough to give you some insight into their designs.

Overall I see high quality shafts with atypical set stiffness designs. I will revisit this when I get a chance to compare the shafts to my current gamers.

VA Composites Raijin Golf Shaft Review

VA Composites Raijin Shaft Review

Raijin ImageI was surprised by the announcement of a new shaft company VA Composites. A quick look at the website and I quickly recognized the VA in VA Composites are the initials of its founder, Victor Afable. I have know Victor for many years as one of the principles at Oban. Before you could become a distributor you got a personal visit from Victor. It was generally the better part of a day where he determined your competence as a fitter and club builder. If you passed you were accepted as a distributor. I tell this story because it gives some insight into a person that has a unique passion for golf shafts and ethical golf club fitting. Victor Afable has been in the shaft business over 30 years. His designs have had a lot of Tour success.

A box of Raijin review samples arrived quickly after I reached out. I was anxious to look at the profile Victor chose to launch his new company with.
