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.

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.There is an in depth discussion of their technology and manufacturing process on their website. 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.

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.

    Russ,

    The EI profile of KGTP-F is very similar to the Diamana Thump (albeit with a softer butt section) and also similar to the Kuro Kage Proto you have profiled. Am I correct in my interpretation? Can you shed some light on the type of swing that will best fit for the KGTP-F?

    Is the KG271-F comparable to the KGTP-F and, if not, what type of swing will be best fit ofr KG271-F?

    Thank you.
