I have a set of irons I want but I am 73 and don't have a world of swingspeed(the irons are mizuno hmbs) Can I make some of it up with really good shafts. Swing speed is about 85 with a driver on a good day.

It’s possible that you may pick up some speed with a change in shafts. You need to find a “good” shaft that fits your swing.

Driver swing speed is only a small data point to go by and may not even have an impact on your iron shaft choice.

The best thing to do to find a good shaft for you is to get fit

Driver: PXG 0811 X+ Proto w/UST Helium 5F4

Wood: TaylorMade M5 5W w/Accra TZ5 +1/2”, TaylorMade Sim 3W w/Aldila rogue white

Hybrid: PXG Gen2 22* w/AD hybrid

Irons: PXG Gen3 0311T w/Nippon modus 120

Wedges: TaylorMade MG2 50*, Tiger grind 56/60

Putter: Scotty Caemeron Super Rat1

Ball: Titleist Prov1

There are plenty of quality lightweight options that would suit you well. You probably just need to see a fitter to determine what shaft is best. Shaft weight is going to be your biggest enemy if you're searching for lost distance. There are lots of great graphite options that weigh under 50g/shaft, it's just a matter of finding the one for you.
