Oban CT-100 Golf Shaft Review

Shamida / Oban CT-100 Golf Shaft Review

The OBAN / Shimada CT-100 is a lower weight version of the CT-115 released last year. They give the club builder the ability to fine tune set stiffness in a constant weight, taper tip design. Iron shafts have traditionally been parallel or taper tip. I wrote an article, Parallel vs Constant Weight Irons Shafts, explaining the differences several years ago. The CT-100, like the CT-115, is a set of 12 constant weight shafts from which the club builder selects a group of shafts to build to an exact the stiffness range. This combines the best aspects of constant weigh taper sets with the tunable stiffness of parallel iron sets. This overcomes the tip stiffness compression inherent in parallel iron sets. If you did not understand that statement, read the technical article.

The discussion about the CT-100 starts at the 9:30 mark on this video shot at the 2018 PGA Merchandise show.

Lets take a closer look at the OBAN CT-100.
