Why are C-Taper shafts "straighter" than other shafts (for me)?

So I have been playing C-Taper 120 S-Flex shafts for about 5 years. I have tried other shafts. KBS Tour (S), KBS Tour V (X), and more recently The PX LZ (6.0) shafts. Of them all, I like the PX LZ, but I have noticed that every shaft other than the C - Taper wants to go left. Not left as in a pull left. But left as in everything wants to turn over left. This is not the case with the C - Taper.  The C - Taper just goes straight.

Can anyone tell me why this is? Are there other shafts that Are anti - left that I need to be aware of?

Less spin

Stiffer then most shafts at the same stated flex. Promotes a more left to right ball flight

all those shafts you listed are more active shafts, less stiff. So they will have a tendancy to go left on you if they aren't a right fit or are too weak for your swing.

I played the C-TAPERS for several years before swapping to Graphite for joint issues ( and age ) and they were by far the straightest. Didn't care why just was happy as hell playing them.

Anti left is simply "low launch" or a shaft who dont add much dynamic loft or face closing. You will see the same if you tried PX 6.0 or Dynamic Gold, or other low launch profiles
