That they were but we have started to get along. Even the 22* is in the bag right now. Tried a bunch of long iron this year that were no easier to hit than the Ft. Worth 15s. In full disclosure the 22* got the Big Stu lead tape treatment.

Haha whatever it takes. Those recoils interest me. What steel shaft has the most similar flight for you?

Thank you MGS for this awesome opportunity. I can't wait to try these out and see how they perform. I just hope you don't have to swing like Hogan to be able hit them well. I would be in serious trouble. :) Thanks again!

MyGolfSpy has had some sweet testing opportunities lately. I just get done saying I would really want to test something and they come out with something I want to try even more.

Congratulations. I have the ft worth 15s and can say they are tremendous. Happy hitting.

They are like smooth X100s, very similar ball flight for me. The kick at the bottom is a bit different than steel but easy to get used to. Shocked that they are as tight on dispersion as any steel shaft I have ever played.

I will once I get some time with the Hogans. Did not get along at all with the Ping Crossover. Absolute hook machine for me which was a combination of the offset and the shaft.

Might have to try a set of those out. They are sounding better all the time.
