Paderson Kinetixx Iron Shaft Review

Paderson Kinetixx Iron Shafts

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.

    Russ,
    Interesting review. I have often wondered why short iron shaft are stiffer when you swing them much slower than long irons. I’ll look forward to picking up a couple of sets of Paderson and try them out myself.

    There’s also the question about the custom shafts that’s going in the Edel single length irons. It will be interesting to find out what Paderson dreamed up for them.
