Zelos 7

Approximately 90-95mph

True Temper R300. (I find them a bit whippier than I like. I used to play S300 in my previous set of 845's, if you think I should go for 8's.)

To give you an idea, the irons are Nicklaus.

I have tried graphite which were lighter than steel shafts and I did not like them.  Currently I have True Temper Elevate 95 Regular flex shafts.  Think I would like to see the reviews before I change out my current shafts or get a new set that has the option to get them.  Whoever gets selected I hope they see a performance improvement.

  • I am Wendell  and 59 years old and currently have an index of 5.6.  I play twice weekly in the Houston, TX area.  
  • I would like to test the Zelos  7 model in the R flex.  I have a smooth swing speed and the torque in my driver is 3.5.  I think this transition to a 2.8 or higher would make sense to me.
  • My swing speed in my irons is 87-93 depending on distance preferred.
  • Currently, I use true temper steel shafts in R flex in Taylormade RSi1's. ( I have a spare set of M2s with graphite shafts that I switch out from winter/summer for distance.  However, I prefer hitting the RSi1's)   My distance on the 7 iron is 144-153 depending on swing speed. They feel heavy (D1 swing weight)  and are a labor to swing. 
  • I have considered moving to graphite as my swing speed lowers over time.

Looks like an interesting test. I am happy with my shafts so best of luck to those applying! Will be interested to see how those that test the model 8 in stiff do when compared with heavier shafts.

Wilson Standard Shafts.

I play with the shafts that came on my Wilson Irons. They are regular flex and steel.

I play a Wilson Cortex Driver, Callaway Razr 3 and 5 Woods, Wilson D7 Irons, Taylormade RAC wedges with Tour Edge High Performance Putter.

I'd be willing to try the new shafts. I currently use Older Nike Slingshot Irons with Idiamana graphite shafts...........Looking to upgrade all my clubs in the near future. Cant even get a trade in dollar amount on these clubs because they done make them anymore
