Moved one flex down much better now.

Looks as though I may need to get some lessons in grammar as well. Did I really type that? If it does not go away I will see a doctor. I just thought it was interesting that I did not have pain until the very first day I used these. I did play 27 that day, which I normally play 18. Happened to be in a tournament and played 18 the next day as well. Just curious as to whether or not anyone else had the same issue. As for going down in flex, I did go from X1 to these in S+ so I thought I was going down a bit... Maybe I'll give some stiffs a try.

I posted this on another C Taper review as well.  Love seeing so many PNW's up in here!  I grew up in Redmond, WA but job transferred me here to St. Louis in 2003.

I used to live at the Super Range in Everett at night and worked at West Seattle, Willows Run, and few others over the years while in college at UW.

Few questions as I'm brand new to this forum.  I just play golf and honestly know nothing about shafts.  I am a very high ball hitter and always just look for feel and trajectory when it comes to picking my clubs.  

I recently hit the TM MC's with C Tapers in them and they felt great.  This week I hit the AP2's with C taper S's and S+'s in them and the numbers were staggering.  My buddy is a pro and a Titleist rep so I trust him and his launch monitor.  Although I almost asked him if this thing is right and/or if it needed to be calibrated.

I have Cally X forged from 2007 with PX 6.5's, 2* upright, 1/4" over.  I've been playing these for almost 6 years and loving them.  But my Titleist buddy said I needed to try the C Tapers.  He hits it really high and so pure and he's playing the S's.  He said he liked to play soft irons because he doesn't typically swing 100%.  

He also said nobody plays the C tapers in X flex, not even most pros.  I don't know how true that is but anyway.  

My launch #'s with the AP2 6i in the C Taper S on the launch monitor were 138MPH ball speed, 17* launch (If I recall launch angle correctly) and my carry was 200-203.

Maybe I was getting tired or just making bad swings but then I tried the S+, 1/2" over standard (I think) and my
