  • S2S Black 65 gram Wood Shafts are for golfers with more aggressive swing characteristics who have a Strength rating of 1.5 to 2, OR who may be stronger but simply prefer the lighter total weight feel from a 65g shaft weight.
  • S2S Black 85 gram wood shafts are for golfers with more aggressive swing characteristics who have a Strength rating of 2 to 2.5, OR who may be weaker but simply prefer the heavier total weight feel from an 85g shaft weight

  1. Hi Tom,
    Been reading about your sterlings for the last couple months and I am going to take the plunge. Have a fitting set up with Jeff at Accufit Golf in Colorado Springs. Already hit his demos and all I can say is WOW. I love them. Anyways, my current irons have SteelFiber i95 in reg which I love. Which one of your shafts would most match??? Thanks.

      Good to hear that you like the test sessions with the Sterling irons and are going in to be fit for a set. Our S2S Black 85 would be the closest shaft we have to the bend profile design of the SteelFiber iron shafts because they also are designed with a firm tip section. However, the i95 is 10 grams heavier than the Black 85. While that is not a lot in terms of the final effect on the total weight of the irons, it is a difference in total weight that some very feel sensitive players would note.

  2. Just got done fitting a customer into a Black 85 X Stiff with his driver. Previously he could not get a good drive with any of the other shafts we tried. Now, he has increased distance by at least 30-yards and they are dead straight. He has a very forceful transition and is more of a hitter than a swinger, so this worked a bit better for him than the Red shaft. He could not be happier with the added 20 grams of weight and with only a 85-90 mph swing speed never even considered the X Stiff shaft. Always a pleasure when we can fit our customers and see such a simple change make such a huge difference! Thanks Tom for the great and affordable shaft designs!

  3. Hi Tom:

    Hoping you can provide a recommendation. Collin Callahan fit me with the S2S 65g Black shafts in a 7, 4, and 2 wood. I use the S2S 85g black shafts in my irons. The iron have been excellent btw…I need to see Collin regarding the 4 iron as I am having trouble finding the sweet spot.

    My PGA professional is Matthew Lodwick at Inverness in Denver and I have now had two sessions with him. Per his advice, I have reverted back to my old KZG 3 wood shafted with w Fujikura Motore F3 80g shaft. Unlike the S2s, the Fujikura launches the ball high – not too high – using my normal swing. I am constantly fighting with the S2s 65g’s unable to get them in the air – not without significant modification to my swing, which Matt views as unwise.

    I am going to revisit the situation with Collin, but wondering if you have any advice on a higher launching shaft in the Wishon line-up that would be help me produce better results?

    I realize it is difficult to analyze without seeing me in person, but I hope this information proves useful.

      It is customary in the custom clubfitting business that when the clubs are not quite right or not quite to the golfer’s final satisfaction, the golfer should go back to talk to the clubfitter to explain the matter so the clubfitter can adjust, change or tweak the clubs to get them so the golfer is happy with the final work. Talk to Colin, show him what you are talking about with the shot height difference between the clubs, and he should be able to work with you to get you into perhaps a softer tip shaft for your swing to help get the ball up a little more. Of our shafts, you may want to ask him to let you try one of the S2S WHITE graphite shafts as it is designed with a softer tip section than the Black.


  4. I recently went to club-builder Bill Weitzel for a wood-shaft fitting. After a few hours on his launch monitor, we discarded all the very costly shafts I brought with me to analyze; the dispersion of the best of the lot being about 20 yards. After trying a few shafts Bill suggested, the shaft I ended up with was the Wishon S2S Black 85. Longer than any of my shafts and my dispersion on a half dozen 295+ yard drives with the S2S was 3.5 yards! Thank you Tom Wishon! Thank you Bill!

  5. Over the last year I have replaced the stock shaft in my Taylormade R1 driver with an Aerotech Claymore and then an Aerotech Steelfiber. About two weeks ago I installed an S2S Black shaft in the club. In the past I hit the driver well but was never really positive where the club would be at impact. With the Black shaft those fears are gone and I can now swing freely with true confidence that the clubhead will be there at impact. I am hitting an average of two additional fairways per round but more importantly my distance has increased by an average of more than ten yards when in the fairway. Love the feel of the Black shaft in my driver as well as my fairway woods. It is so much fun to see your golf buddies wonder what happened when all of a sudden you are out driving them or putting the ball up near the green on long par 5s without fear. Thank you Tom.

      That’s great to hear that you like the performance of the S2S Black shafts in your driver. Most people tend to think of us first as a clubhead design company but we really feel that our shaft R&D capability is as good as there is – heavily so because from all of our fitting research we really do understand how the different moves of the golf swing relate to and affect shaft stiffness design and performance. We’ve really worked hard to understand all of this and then we have that information to use when we design our shafts. In the end, we feel it works very well and so we are very pleased to hear it has made a visible difference for you!!

      Thanks again!
