Oban CT-125 Golf Shaft Review

Oban CT-125 Iron Shaft Review

The Oban CT-125 is the last of the weights that will be made in this model. It joins the previously reviewed CT-100 and CT-115, completing the fitting matrix of the series. Each weight has 11 shafts from which the club builder can select a subset to build a set. The extended range allows for fine tuning stiffness by “soft stepping” or “hard stepping”. This is not exactly the correct term for this design, but it is a concept you may be familiar with. Building a set of 8 shafts from the 11 available allows for three steps in either the soft or hard direction. A smaller set of 6 or 7 irons adds more stiffness options. Most other constant weight shaft brands produce 8 or 9 shafts in a model matrix.

If you do not follow my YouTube Channel, Devoted Golfer, this was shot at the 2019 PGA Merchandise show. Ralph Reichart, owner of Oban talks about briefly about the extrusion process used by Shimada to make the CT series of iron shafts.
