My persimmon experiment a few months back was about a 5%-10% loss of distance on a comparable modern wood with graphite. Persimmons were shafted with Dynamic Gold SL shafts.
It would be fun to see the results using persimmon along with the old balata. Any idea what the loss would be then? Maybe closer to 20%?
I didn't think it was that much distance loss. I'll have to try it again next year.
BTW, Becky told me to say Hi from her if I got a chance.
