True Temper brings back the Spinner wedge shaft!

I'd probably take out my 5 wood or 4 iron. I love my 3 wood too much to remove it.

 

And me, I'd die without my 4I. I hit it about as much as any long club in the bag. And once I get the A7 in the 3hybrid spot, I think that's going to be a favorite as well.

They are a softer tip. In all honesty, i have been told on more than one occasion that you can take an 8 iron Rifle shaft and get basically the same result as the spinner. I have never frequencied the two to compare or anything, but thats what I have read on more than one occasion.

 

The softer tip, which should kick the head through theoretically to create more spin. Thats my take. I never liked spinners, as like a few here, i hit them too high and lost distance with them. Instead of an 80 yard lob wedge it ended up being 68 or so and right in a bunker. DOH!! Perhaps the new ones are different, i dont know. YMMV

I always just assumed that these were heavier in the tip section to promote more speed at impact and release. That's how they felt in my hands anyway. I didn't know they were softer tipped.

Inga Hammond was eye candy - nothing more.

 

I actually think Kelly is highly under-rated and one of the best on-air personalities there. One of the networks would snatch her up in a minute if TGC cut her loose.

 

Here's the problem: Inga Hammond wasn't good looking! Erin Andrews is eye candy, not Inga Hammond.

 

You have regained all the credit lost (re: saying I was from Barrington) by showing appreciation for Kelly. Now her golf forum fan club numbers 2.

What is it about the shaft that helps to create more spin?

 

In my experience, the shaft was much heavier towards the tip which promoted more of a release of the clubhead. Someone else also mentioned a softer tip, which might be true, but I don't know.

Finally some rationality on the Inga Hammond situation, she really wasn't all that good looking. Now, Lauren Thompson is something else.....

I have been told by a Rifle dealer that the Spinner is in fact a 8 iron shaft put in a wedge, no difference at all. That said, if you like them and want the extra spin a great shaft...

That's very interesting to hear, but hearing it from the Rife dealer isn't unbiased info though, can any other source collaborate this?
