Vintage Iron and Modern Shaft Choices

Recommended Posts

I bought a vintage 1970s muscleback forged club and am trying to figure out the right shaft given the 5 iron head is 10-15 grams heavier than most modern  heads.


What would you suggest to pick a modern shaft for older heads. Not afraid to just pick TTDG300 and not worry about, but that seems like missing the chance to put the right shaft on the irons.

My driver swing speed is 95. I have NO idea what current swing weight is. My irons are Titleist 704 CB with TTDG stiff shafts. I like the feel even though my swing speed has slowed 5-10mph vs 15 years ago.

I am thinking I can find a modern club head with nearly same headweight low offset and use as my shaft fitting demo.. add lead tape to get to same headweight for same loft. 

What do you think ?
