FM Precision VS TT Rocket shafts??????????

Post by FROSTY1 » Tue, 12 Jan 1999 04:00:00


Can anyone give me some feedback on the subject stepless steel shafts. I'm
currently playing with TT-S300 shafts and I'm considering changing to a
stepless shaft. Are either of these (Precision or Rocket) considered superior?
Product attributes of either?
Personal experiences?

Both are priced about the same.

Thanks

Frosty

Another shaft you should consider is the Apollo Balistik.  I'm currently
playing the Balistiks in a set of Dynacraft Direct Lines and I like the
shaft, although they are too flexible for my swing.  Generally I've heard
that the Rockets are kind of harsh feeling (without sensicore).

The Balistik is also $3-4 cheaper per shaft than the Rifles.  For $10 you
can buy the software to give you precise t*** instructions given your
head's specifications and from the data I've seen, the resulting clubs end
up within 1-2 cpm of the desired frequency.

My suggestion is to build a few test clubs and see which one you like the
best.

I know that the Rockets run VERY stiff.  The regulars play more like a S or even
X flex.

i'm not too sure about that. i had a rocket in a cobra
deep face 9* driver for a bit. it was an "S" flex and i
think the flex was comparable to about a dynamic gold
s400. ymmv.

FM Precision are the best steel shafts that you can buy.
The new Rifle Lite shafts are probably the best available.
Get the right frequency though.  They tend to run a bit stiffer
than advertised.  Look at the 1999 Golf Works catalog and
you will get the whole story.

Most of the rifles run stiffer than say the Dynamic Gold shaft ratings.  I use to
play DGS X100's and am now using Precision FCM 5.8 shafts and love them.  They are a
tad more flex than the x100 but not much;  but they are stiffer than my old DGS
300's. The non sensicore DG's seem a little stiffer than the sensicore ones.   I
haven't tried the Rocket shafts yet only because I like don't like the way they
look.

The rifling is supposed to absorb some of the vibration like a sensicore.  And it
really does.

The DSFI (which is the industry standard for shaft fitting) says that
the regular flex shaft is meant for someone who swings the driver at 102
mph.

I like the Rocket Shafts...However...be careful in selecting which flex.  They are
stiff than the R, S flex indicates.  I usually play a Dynamic Gold S300, and the
Rocket S flex felt significantly stiffer in my hands.

To Frosty:

Should you consider Rockets, you may want to note that True Temper also
offers a RR (double-R) flex that's more flexible than their R-flex shafts.  I
have a set of Dynacraft Copperheads shafted with the R-flex Rockets (with
Sensicore). My clubmaker, though, seems to waver equally between those and
Rifles, depending on when you ask.  I don't think you can go wrong with
Rockets, BUT you may get a more "lively" feel with Rifles.  YMMV, and I've
never tried Rifles, but I remember the distinct feeling of shanking an iron
with the Apollo Ballistik (ow ow ow ow ow ow) in my pure beginner days.

On a side note, I was browsing through a clubmaking shop, and saw KC Norman
Grind irons (3-PW) shafted with Rifles for sale (consignment?).  Clubmaker
there said once the Normans are shafted with Rifles, that's it.  You've past a
point of no return with those Rifles.  Thoughts?
