If you’re referring to the old Bemans with the outserts, I have to humbly disagree. There is NO comparison between ANY of the carbons made today (that I’ve tried) and those old Bemans. Those outserts were used because they were ABSOLUTELY necessary in order to maintain integrity on impact. Those Bemans were MIGHTY expensive back when they were “the” carbon shaft. There is no way those Bemans would have held up to the abuse that the newer carbons are capable of withstanding…not even close.
