  1. I have to say, I have been jonesing for these shafts since the 2019 PGA Show when I hit them in some irons at Demo Day. They were just phenomenal feeling. During this past summer, to truly get a better feel for them, I ordered a single Apex 7 iron from Callaway with the shaft in it, to really have time with it to make sure it was a shaft i liked. I still had the love for it that I first experienced at the PGA Show. Now moving on, some of you know I was fit for T300 irons last fall at TPI. What most of you don't know is I had the opportunity the day before my TPI visit to visit the new KBS Experiece. A combination retail store and fitting center, with all things KBS and even draft beer on tap! You can see some pictures from that visit Here Now I didn't go through a full fitting there, but knowing I was going to be fit for most likely the T300 the next day, and knowing Titleist doesn't currently offer it as a custom option, the guys at KBS gladly put together a T300 head with a couple different TGI shafts. The TGI 80 worked very well for me in all aspects, distance, most importantly flight dispersion and height. So I got back home, the season was pretty much over and had surgery and knew I wouldn't even be thinking about hitting any clubs until well into January. I ordered the T300 with the stock Tensei Blue, which was what was best for me out of the options that day at the TPI fitting. Once they arrived, I took a day to take in the excitement of new irons, and then immediately shipped them off to KBS to have my long awaited TGI shafts put in. What better news to see on a Monday than the Fed Ex truck pull up with a very cool long box. Inside was a full set of TGI 80 shafts in brand new T300 that have yet to have the misfortune of striking a golf ball by me. I'm sure both the clubs and shafts would be better served in a more skilled players hands, but it is what it is, and you'll get to here the experiences of your affable if not scratch golfer CG2. Initially I've got some unboxing photos to share. They unfortunately arrived on a wet and cool day, so no real opportunity to get them on the course. Will definitely try and get some Trackman time with them this week if the weather improves a bit. And while this thread will be mostly about the shafts and their performance, I'd be remiss not to show off at least 1 in the bag picture of the irons. I must stay they look pretty darn good for a GI iron.
  2. With the release of the USGA/R&A Distance Report this week, it seems the perfect time to offer a review of a shaft that is designed for....guess what...more club head speed. The Fujikura Motore X shafts hit stores this week, and even debuted in the bag of at least one PGA Tour Pro at the Waste Management. You can read all the details of the new shaft on the home page in this first look piece by My Golf Spy's Chris Nickel, to see how Fujikura says they are able to "Multiply" a drivers swing speed. Read it Here Will it work for you? Well that's what we're going to ask five forum members--that reside in the United States--- to test for themselves and report back to the forum on the results The five testers will go through a phone fitting with a Fujikura fitter to determine the best model for them. They will then receive the shaft put it through paces on the range--Ideally with a launch monitor access--and on the course over several weeks, track and monitor the results versus their current gamer, then write and publish their full length review here on the forum. Testers will be required to keep up an ongoing dialogue in the review thread while testing the shaft. Once the testers are selected and most likely during the phone fitting, you will be asked what driver head you are using, and the shaft will be sent with the adapter for that head, you will be all set to put it on and go test!! How to Apply to Enter Read ALL the details below and enter your information in a post in this thread. PLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS POST IN YOUR REPLY. JUST PROVIDE THE INFO REQUESTED. Testing is for US Residents per the OEM's request. First Name/State Current Driver Shaft Current Driver Swing Speed What if anything would you like to improve in regards to your driver shaft..such as more or less spin, better dispersion, more distance..etc. Do you have regular access to a Launch Monitor--Not required, but would be helpful in testing. That's it, we'll be selecting the testers sometime late next week. Good Luck!
  3. I was previously playing with a taylormade R15 driver 10.5° for which I was hitting terrible 90% of the time(hooks, slices and short) . This was before I realised what shaft flex it was so when I checked the shaft I realised it was a L flex. I was able to trade it in for a stiff flex Titleist 915 D2 driver and this sorted my problems out. What flex shaft do you use? Do other shafts mess your tee shots up? Let me know
  4. My son bought me a Ping g400 driver for christmas last year. Great club and I hit it way farther than my old BB, but only if I de-loft it to 9.5 (big minus setting), slow my swing down a bit and play it back in my stance (de-loft some more). Of course, anything other perfect timing and its either snap hook or balloon like crazy. The shaft is an Alta 55 soft regular. I'm thinking this shaft is a little too soft for my swing (swing speed =95 mph). Here's where the bling squirrel comes in, in Springfield ,IL your only options for anything Ping is Dick's or Scheels. Both are woefully lacking in any type of shaft to demo (each had 1 Alta in stiff only), so I'm here looking for any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
  5. What is the best "bang for your buck" aftermarket shaft out there? Would love to get everyone's opinion on this one. Personally I think its the Proforce V2 for $59.99 but I don't know everything that is out there or how much they all cost.
  6. Great forum, great community, and I am sure one of the knowledgeable members has come across this question before (or, can point me in the right direction). I have used the search bar some to pin point this topic to some effect, but haven't come across the answer that satisfies my curiosity. I already know and understand a dynamic fitting and static fitting work best for shaft fitting and it's hard to beat a good (and patient) fitter. My question pertains to online iron shaft fitting/recommendations from most of the shaft manufacturers and/or online fitting services: How relevant is a question regarding iron distance (say, 6i carry) when your current 6i loft and the set you are interested in purchasing is different? I could ,theoretically, hit my 6i 170 yards using a 26* loft but only hit my buddies 6i 155 yards using 29*...these are just relative numbers to express a questionable point... with all other variables being the same (relatively speaking) but loft. My interpretation of the line of questions for iron shaft recommendation is that it is generating results based on flight and dispersion preferences along with swing speed/power/carry distance. However, if my current 6i is 26* and is allowing me to move the ball 170yds down the fairway, how good is the online fitting tool going to be if the new set I am interested in has a more traditional loft to it? Am I totally off base in this line of thinking? Are the manufacturers shaft recommendations useless? Again, I apologize if this has already been discussed ad nauseam. Happy golfing!

  8. Matt Saternus (used to be with MGS) of PluggedInGolf.com posted an interesting article... "Do wedge shafts matter?" https://pluggedingolf.com/do-wedge-shafts-matter-golf-myths-unplugged/ He tested in a similar style to MGS using a variety of recreational players and identical wedge heads with different shafts, then swapping them among the players and having them hit different short game shots. Results are measured by Trackman at a Club Champion. The questions he was looking to "Confirm" or "Bust" include... Myth #1 – A wedge shaft can create more spin Myth #2 – A wedge shaft can change launch angle Myth #3 – A wedge shaft can improve accuracy Myth #4 – A wedge shaft can improve consistency Myth #5 – The same shaft will fit all your wedges Interesting and informative article .. worth a look! https://pluggedingolf.com/do-wedge-shafts-matter-golf-myths-unplugged/
  9. I recently swapped my Project X 6.5’s for a set of 5.5’s. I did keep the 7i shaft as it had been repaired after bending it around a tree. Its new home is in an old Wilson 2i. I digress, I want to sell these shafts. I have 4,5,6,8,9,PW with grips, Lamkin 3 gen ACE that have been played but are in good shape. The shafts have ferrules but I recommend dressing them up with new ferrules if you have the opportunity. Here’s some pics. I’ll start at $100 shipped within the lower 48. Thanks for looking. I’ll be playing at Sweetens this weekend so I may be out of touch. I’ll check in when I can to answer questions.
  10. This one is next up in our shaft review pipeline. I still need to get some of the details from the team at UST while our shaft review partners at Cool Clubs take their S3 measurements, but I wanted to get some pics up now. This is essentially a release that celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the ATTAS line. While the paint is bold, it's not without purpose. Starting from the butt end of the shaft the colors celebrate the previous ATTAS models by way of sequentially matching the colorway of each of the 9 generations of ATTAS. Beginning with the butt section of the shaft; the original ATTAS was orange. The ATTAS 2 was red, 3 was yellow, and so on it goes through the white of the 9th generation ATTAS Cool. Full details and review in a couple of weeks.

  13. Just got some Artisan Wedges created by Mike Taylor:
  14. For Christmas this past year, I was given a driver fitting at Club Champion along with the driver/shaft I was fitted for. I ended up going with the Rogue Sub Zero with a HZRDUS Black 6.0, so it was early February before I had it in hand. After playing with the driver for a little over a month, I decided the trajectory was a little flatter than I wanted it, so I increased the loft 1 degree. In doing so, I knew I would be altering how the shaft (which was sst pured) was oriented, but was ok with that just to see how I liked the flight. I figured if I liked the flight, I would just go back to Club Champion and have them reorient the shaft. Well, not only do I like the flight more, I also like the feel of the shaft more as well, which raises some questions? -Was the shaft not properly pured? -Was the shaft not properly installed? Club Champion puts a P on the shaft for where the spine is located, and that was installed facing down at first. Now, after increasing the loft, the sticker is facing up. -I know some people don't think puring a shaft is worthwhile...is this just evidence for that mindset? Or it is just something about this specific shaft/my swing that is causing me to prefer the way it is oriented currently? If it helps, my swing speed with driver is right at 105 with a quick tempo. Any suggestions/information you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

  18. I've always been fit to 3/4 or 1" over in iron fittings, depending on the OEM and their standard length. But recently I went to a demo where I wanted try two different shafts in the same iron. But they only had one shaft in 1/2 over and the other in the 1" over. I hit the 1" well enough, mostly like my normal shaft length. Then when I tried the 1/2 it was like magic, every shot seemed flushed and seemed to have much more solid contact. Could it be similar to drivers, where the shorter shaft gave me much more control thus producing more consistent contact. I know the answer seems obvious based on the above results. But I guess I had just never thought of irons that way, It seemed i was always fit more for my posture stance with the 1" vs. better results with a shorter shaft. I didn't seem to notice a huge difference in my set up, meaning I didn't feel like I was more hunched over with the 1/2 than the 1" but that was just my feel, I obviously couldn't see for myself.
  19. Hi guys, I'm looking for some advise. I currently have a set of TaylorMade Speedblades, stiff shaft and my swing speed is between 85 - 95 MPH. I am looking to move over to the 2016 M2 Irons, should i move over to Regular shafts?
  20. They will need new grips. The shafts weight is 127grams. The 5iron length is 37.75". Tthe tip size is .355". The ball flight that they give is Low-Mid (i.e: Lower than KBS) Asking for 70$ shipped!!!!!!OBO!!!!
  21. I've got an EPIC SZ head on the way. Friend gave me a good deal on just the head. Now I need a shaft to go with it! Does me no good if all I have are Titleist tips sitting around in my basement. So what does everyone have that they are willing to let go at the MGS discounted price?? Looking for Stiff shafts, 55g - 75g (well weight is really not the issue) Let me know, send pics .... I know you guys have shafts laying around that you're not playing ... let's see 'em!
  22. Anyone have any of these lying around? Been contemplating between these & Recoils. Wanna put the 95's in AP2's 4 - 9 & 110's in the wedges
  23. I golfed with a gentleman today who claimed that golf shafts "wear out" and need to be replaced every 4 years (assuming 50 rounds per year). Can anyone (equipment junkies, club builders, club fitters, etc.) please chime in with your thoughts on this? Is this a valid claim?
  24. Turns out these just don't work for me ... spray the ball all over the place. Have 2 rounds in them, just 1 pull so they are like new, taper tip 3 - PW with an extra wedge shaft that I would be willing to add in if interested in the set. Have brand new GP MC4 grips on the 4 - 9 iron, GP tour velvet on PW, and GP red multi compound on 3 iron. (Didn't buy enough +4's so had to put together a few stragglers) Trade interests would be Recoil F4 95s or 110s. Or maybe a Callaway Epic SZ and some $$ Let me know thanks ... looking for $230 OBO
