Are ladies club heads the same as men's?

Simple question, are the club heads on ladies clubs the same as men's?

 

Specifically on iron sets, say a set of TM Speedblade irons, are the heads the same or would they be lighter?

I'm pretty sure they are the same with the shafts only being lighter.

I wasn't sure if they needed lighter heads to hit a normal swing weight when using the lighter shafts

I could have a lot of fun with this......

 

But I would say that unless it is a different model, such as the Calaway Solaire, it would be the same head.  Otherwise, why bother.  If you are going to build a woman's specific head, market it as such.

The ones I've seen simply had higher lofts.

 

Makes sense to me as higher lofts are easier on the player and do not require as much swing speed. There are limits to how much any company can invest to access a speciial market and women are way fewer on the fairways and more often relegated to the husband's cast offs. The market for specially built women's clubs is limited.

My point in a all of this was around the Speedblade irons. I swap out pretty much any shaft they would come with so if I found a better deal on a used women's set I could just pull the shafts and the club heads would be the same as the men's sets. My big concern was if the head weights are the same.

Have you tried emailing tmag or even a fitting center to see if they know?

Irons are easier.  You can add swing weights and make them whatever (within reason) you want.

Generally speaking, they're the same heads.  Occasionally, with drivers, you'll find they use a lighter head than usual.  As far as the faces/heads, they're the same and the same material.  I bought a ladies XHot driver last year because the mens weren't available in the higher loft I wanted to try.  Only difference was the paintfill.

I also bought a ladies XHot fairway last year because the crown graphics were different and there wasn't an alignment aid, so it looked cleaner.

If that is all you're worried about just visit a medical supply store and pick up a scale, preferably digital. You'll then be able to compare head weights to your hearts desire.

I already bought a set of men's, so no longer an issue. I do have a digital kitchen scale I use for clubs and packages, but to compare I would have had to buy both sets :)
