  1. Thank you Tom for the reply. I’ve always been impressed you come on here and answer seemingly ANY question from ANYONE. You won’t find that anywhere else.
    Wishing you and yours a Happy Holidays.

      Many thanks for your appreciation ! Yes, I do and always have answered any questions from anyone who wants to know more about any aspect of golf club performance or design. It goes way back to when I was just starting and I was ravenous to know everything I could. back then I used to try calling all the golf companies and shaft companies trying to get someone who knew this stuff who could answer my questions. And every time I was blown off or given some lame excuse that what I was asking was “proprietary information they could not share”. What BS. Pretty soon I got PO’d and made myself a promise – I told myself I was going to dig into this stuff through my own work and research and I promised if I ever did get to a point that I had the knowledge, I would for sure share anything I knew with anyone who was interested. That’s why I have written 10 books, hundreds of articles and probably thousands of comment posts in my career. And will still keep doing it as long as people are interested in knowing the facts. (not alternative facts !! HA ! Which is kind of what the big companies put out, if they say anything at all ! )

      Thanks again and the very best to you in this great game,
      TOM

  2. I’ve yet to try these wedge shafts, but offering a knock down and high option is interesting.
    I’ve found the S2S stepless perform great in wedges for me. No reason to switch except that I’m curious.

    As far as the putter shafts, is there really any characteristic other than weight that matters?

      You’ll find me as one who believes that if a golfer has found an iron shaft they like, then there is no reason to use any other shaft in the wedges. When I create products for my design line, I try very hard to combine ideas I have on my own with the occasional request from our clubmaker customers for what they want to see as well. In the case of the wedge shafts, this was a request from quite a number of clubmakers. But in doing these shaft designs, I was very, very skeptical of the way all other companies designed their wedge specific shafts. Almost every one is based on the same flex as the 8 iron shaft in the set of shafts which means the other companies’ wedge shafts are like being about a half flex softer than a normal iron shaft installed in a wedge. To me, that is just hardly any difference and is something that pretty much only a more aggressive swing with a very late release would notice. And even then it would be very slight, More marketing than performance IMO.

      So when I decided to design these wedge shafts, I wanted to be sure that the one that would be softer (High Flight) would be a LOT softer in the tip section than what anyone else was doing. The whole idea of a softer wedge specific shaft is to try to help with a higher flight and more spin. And the only way a shaft can do that to any extent is if it is substantially more flexible either overall or in the tip section than the other iron shafts in the set. So that is what I did with the High Flight shaft – it is 1.5 flexes softer in the tip section than what you are experiencing with using the Stepless iron shaft in your wedges now. I had to do that so that at the slower swing speed of wedges there could even be a little bit of help for the shaft to kick more forward and do its thing to increase height and spin. So you have to think about this – if you feel that having a shaft in the wedges that did feel more flexible when you put more of an aggressive move on the shot is not going to turn you off, then fine. But if having a feel of the wedge shaft being able to kick more is not something you cotton to, then don’t do it.

      The other wedge shaft is much more stiff – the Knock Down is like a X and a half so if a player really wants to hit down hard with the hands well forward at impact, the shaft won’t give back any sense of kicking or flipping through the ball.

      So that’s the deal – and I did these at a reasonable price so if a player were just curious, he could build a wedge or re shaft an existing wedge with one to try out and if it was not his cup of tea then the golfer was not out that much. Hope this helps and thanks so much for your interest, TOM
