I am about to enter the cf shaft world. I have not hit any of the brands but, since I play with McDermotts, have decided to try a Defy first. I currently play a 314-2, with a LePro tip. I like the hard hit of the LePro and think I want a single layer tip for the Defy but am not sure.

Do the cf shafts normally require a softer tip or should I approach it just like any other LD/laminated shaft?

Hard hit with a Defy shaft sounds contradictory. I haven’t hit with one, but everything about them talks about how soft they feel.

I have a Jacoby Black and a Becue. Medium layered tips are the hardest I’ve tried.

Hopefully someone else will weigh in about using a single layer tip. I just wanted to warn you about the feel of the Defy. It would be worth a test drive.

Thanks for the info, guys. I'm still undecided and do not understand why McDermott chooses to use a "soft" tip as their stock option.

Most major CF shafts ship w/ a soft tip as the default, Pechauer being the exception. Some (BeCue, Spartan, Schmelke, etc.) let you choose your tip from the start & some stores let you change for a charge.
