I love the play of my PX shafts but the things are making my hands sore when I practice. I currently have multicompounds on them which feel nice but they are hard grips. Any recommendations for a grip that might help with reducing the impact to the hands?

Thanks

VDR's or Dual durometers. They're both excellent for shock absorbtion

I had the same problem with PX, my left wrist would always be sore after practicing, which I do a lot. Hitting off matts was unbearable..I'm a digger...Switched to C-Tapers and no more soreness. A really soft spongy grip might help some with the PX's but you would lose some feel too probably...never tried that, I had NDMC's on mine too..

PX will be harsh with any grip.  That's part of the reason why I switched to C-tapers.  I found that softer grips like Iomic or NO1 reduce vibration quite a bit.  The firmer grips tend to do the opposite.

Problem is that the ctapers are not project x. I have tried both and even though I do like the ctapers, I have better performance with project x. Maybe the new project x will do the trick, I have the same problem with vibration, only other shaft I like is the aerotech steelfiber 125, they feel great and have great performance, with vibration control. Then you just have to deal with all of the buttheads talking about your "graphite shafts" lol

As long as they're talking about them while paying  off the debt they owe you for losing the match then who cares? :D

The new PXi that is yet to be released is supposed to have a smoother, less harsh feel than the original PX.

Is it just me or do a lot of folks here seem to think the PX shafts are harsh?  Personally, I've only found the PX shafts (5.5 in a set of 2008 AP2 and 6.0 in my present 710 CB/MB blended set) harsh on mishits.  On properly struck shots, they feel as good and smooth as anything else out there.  As it is now, I'm mishitting seven to ten balls out of a hundred on the range and two or three on course (mostly when I try to get cute with a shot).

I find that toe shots especially are especially harsh on the fingers and hands.  7 mishits out of 10 equals swollen hands and fingers for the rest of the day, lol.  I've been on that boat in the past when I would have bad ball striking days, so I know where you're coming from bro.  My hands thank me everyday now since switching to the c-tapers, hehe.

PX shafts are tip firm and somewhat "boardy" - even in the 5.0 flex.

For golfers who muscle the ball, they're perfect. For smoother actions something with a softer tip nearly always works better.

That could explain why the good ol' Dynamic shaft has lasted so long.........
