Howard Jones asked me to help him post his new and improved shaft chart. Enjoy. Click the chart to enlarge.
Any idea on the FCM of the C-Taper Lite X no stepping? Hit one in the golf shop the other day and loved the added swing weight, just want to see what it is comparable to.

I dont have a exact FCM value, but its in line with KBS TOUR R+ 115 grams taper (or a cpm or 2 stronger) so it should be in the area of FCM 5.6 to 5.7.

I never measured one myself, so i cant be more precise, but CPM measured butt side only, dont tell anything about the rest of the shaft, so never think that 2 shafts with the same FCM number will feel the same.

Interesting. I was using a project x 6.0 and my fitter told me we needed to go closer to a 6.5. i ended up liking the c-taper x lite more. The c-taper x felt harder to feel the head. I have a pretty fast swing speed. Do you think i'm getting too flexible of a shaft for my swing speed. My fitting had me at 100-102mph with 6i. Just seems odd to go softer than my 6.0.

If shaft weight is right, dispersion good, and feel is good, the shaft is good for you.

You are in the higher end of club speed, so it would be natural to think you need a rebar of some sort, but that depend on your swing more than clubspeed, because its not about how fast you swing, but how you swing fast.

A smooth swing player can play almost anything without dispersion problems, while the brutal one, needs a stiffer shaft to handle the forces he puts on the shaft.

Weight, dispersion, feel....
If all 3 is good, the shaft is a good fit

I have a Tour Issue FUJIKURA MOTORE SPEEDER VC 7.2 TOUR SPEC that has a taylormade R11s label on it. It was made for that specific Taylormade driver, Iím wondering if itís a ligit motore speeder? Is it worth installing on my favorite driver head ping g30 ls tec? Or should I get the motore speeder that does not have a taylormade label bc theres is a substantial difference? Your thoughts and input would be much appreciated.

Can you add the AMT Red and Black to the chart? I wasn't able to find any info in the postings.
