  1. As you already figured out, you can’t get ACCRA shafts directly from any OEM as an upgrade option. The people behind ACCRA decided to stay loyal to their custom Clubmakers customer base even after being acquired by TrueSports. So even, if you would decide on a different set of irons (which really might not be necessary, since the G410s are great irons already), you would have to have them reshafted. Ping doesn’t offer head only accounts to custom shops, since it’s not a good fit to their philosophy and the way, their heads are manufactured. Swing weighting is done with different inserts, glued
  2. Hi therod with FST, the lower weights are generally slightly softer than the heavier ones. But I honestly doubt, that you will see a significant difference between the 115 and the 125. It might even happen, that you hit the 125 higher due to a different delivery of the clubface due to the weight difference. If you want to change the height of your ballflight, change the loft. Changing shafts will only affect the flight significantly, if the shaft changes your impact situation due to a different timing. When fitting customers within the same weight range and the same clubhead, I rare
  3. Zelos line is a solid option for this task. I prefer to build wedges with slightly heavier shafts to maintain shortgame control. I try to keep them around 20 grams heavier than the shafts in the irons. In this case, Zelos 7 would be my preferred option. Cheers, Michael
  4. The weight might be the issue. KBS Tour being significantly heavier than AWT 2.0 plus being a higher balance point shaft will most likely screw with your timing. If you like AWTs and want to try a KBS product, KBS Tour 90 might do the trick, but honestly....I would just stick to what works. Cheers, Michael
  5. Aerotech Steelfibre, PX Catalyst and KBS TGi are all relatively stout playing graphite shafts with a pretty firm profile. Those are nice options, if you come from a shaft like DG, PX and LZ or even a Modus 125. They will feel firmer (but still offer more vibration dampening properties) than NIPPON 950. As already mentioned by Wedgie, UST Recoils would be close in feel compared to Nippons 950 Pros. 780 SmacWrap would be a good option or the taper tip 95, if you prefer that weight range. Another option could be ACCRA shafts with their iSeries. They play slightly firmer than Recoils, bu
  6. There was never a constant weight parallel tip DG around iirc. Nippon is one of the very few companies offering constant weight 0.370 shafts out there Edit: just use a shim as already mentioned. I did that a couple of times during my 20 years of club building. No issue at all
  7. KBS Tour V basically is a beefed up KBS Tour with a firmer tip section. Nowhere near as stout as PX, but firmer feeling compared to KBS Tour.
  8. Hi guys, does any of you have first hand experience with the new ACCRA steel shafts? I’m playing Modus 105 S-Flex these days and plan to go a bit heavier in shaft weight to help maintain my rhythm a bit better. ACCRA 115 could be an option, just would like to know, if anyone is familiar with the characteristics and/or feel (I know....very subjective) of those shafts. Any input is appreciated Cheers Golfmanufaktur
  9. The CT Lite isn’t overly exotic, when it comes to the profile of the shaft. I would take a closer look into the MRC Blueboard profiles or PX Evenflow/Riptide.
  10. Modus 120 is a very different profile compared to PX. Way softer under the hands and in the middle section of the shaft. They are similarly firm in the tip section though. Not saying, that you can not replace PX by a Modus 120, but it’s not a given, that it will work out the intended way. The easiest replacement is the C-Taper 130X.....very similar shaft, since it’s been designed to mimic the PX. Another option could be DG X7.
  11. Since the G400 is one of the heavier heads out there, a counterbalanced shaft might be a good option. Hzrdus Smoke YELLOW is an option, as is the already mentioned Aldila Rogue Silver. Or you go shorter in playing length and get your trusted Graffaloy shaft
  12. As already pointed out by others, impact location determines playing length. If you hit the ball well, don't change playing length. If you have issues with the contact, you can start with some adjustments. The advice to grip shorter is your first starting point, if you want to feel it out. Cheers, Michael
  13. Mavricks are a nice improvement over Rogues. Looks are pretty similar, but sound and with this feel is improved on the Mavricks. I played XR Pros for a couple of years and the Mavrick Pros are way nicer in direct comparison. Cheers, Michael
  14. You won`t find a lot of differences in between your 585s and the Forged or Hot Metals. Hot Metals are a good bit more chunky, but Forged is relatively similar. I prefer the Srixons because of their sole design. I'm not super steep, but take a healthy divot once in a while. The Srixon sole works a lot better, when doing that compared to the Mizzys. If you are a picker of the ball, this might not affect you at all. Just something to keep in mind. Cheers, Michael Edit: The Tours are a totally different design. More similar to Z-Forged - even 785s are way easier to hit for me person
  15. PX HZRDUS line is pretty round - you might feel a spine in a spine finding device, but it won't make a difference in playing performance, since the difference between the hard and the soft side of a high end graphite shaft these days is very small. I remember old Alidla NV Green days, where you could find shafts with a difference of 15cpm from the soft to the hard side of a shaft - with a modern high end graphite shaft, you will have troubles finding more than 2cpm. Long story short - installing them logo down is most likely a good way to go. Cheers, Michael
