Ping's founder Karsten Solheim on his early Shafts

I’ve always been a big proponent of golfers at all levels working into very firm shafts. Interesting quote here about Karsten:

He sure moved away from that by the time those ZZ Lites came around in the Eye2+ & Zings. Those shafts were terrible and just about impossible to get out because of those goddamn ball bearings they used instead of epoxy. Interesting idea but there’s a special room in the Eighth Level of Hell for old Karsten just for that & making the hardest clubs to bend ever. Grrrrrrrrrrrr
