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!
Matt Saternus (used to be with MGS) of PluggedInGolf.com posted an interesting article...
"Do wedge shafts matter?"
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!
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.
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.
