Did you include the Project X LZ in your fitting, Ian?

I've tried the graphite LZ before (felt good) and the steel LZ at this fitting. $-Taper blew this and other steel shafts away, particularly in feel. I think I've mentioned before, what was really surprising was how the ball stayed straight. Crazy to see. I was so much more consistent regarding front to back dispersion too.
No doubt I'll pick them up and can't hit them for shit!!

C taper always worked well for me but caused joint pain. Interested in trying the $ taper come spring perhaps.

The LZ franchise did not fit me well from the wood shafts down to the iron shafts. Loaded strange and I couldn’t get my timing right at all.

I'm quite interested in trying the $-Taper, but I feel pretty locked into Shimada these days, especially given how much less expensively I've been able to source them.  Still, the curiosity...
