How does the 1150GH compare in flex to other shafts like KBS Tour or Rifle? I'd like around 5.0-5.5 flex. Would R work or would I need to hard step it or soft step an S? Thanks

In looking at our shaft test data the Nippon N.S. Pro 1150GH Tour S flex is more flexible then the Project X Rifle, and KBS Tour R flex shafts. Our data showed the KBS Tour R flex as 10 cpms stiffer at the butt end and the Project X Rifle 5.0 13 cpms stiffer. The closest match I found was the Project X Pxi 5.0 flex which was 5 cpm's softer at the butt end then the N.S. Pro 1150 GH Tour S flex. The 5.5 Rifle shaft tested 15 cpm's stiffer then the 1150 GH. The Nippon N.S. Pro 1150GH was more flexible at all the zones we tested compared to the other shaft except the tip stiffness measurement of the original Rifle 5.5 shaft which was more flexible at the tip.
