I use the dynalite stiff shafts from golfsmith (about 12 years ago) what shaft do you have the would be similar in weight and kick?

Tom Wishon

DON
The S2S Superlite Steel iron shaft is the closest to the Dynalite pattern you got 12 yrs ago. The difference between them is in the weight – The Dynalite is around 12-15 grams heavier than the Superlite but the bend profile characteristics for stiffness design over their length is pretty similar. Hope this helps,
TOM

Dear Tom,
I am currently playing a set of GS Tour Cavity Forged irons with the older
Wishon Superlight shafts made by Precision. Will the new super light shafts play the same. I noticed their step design is somewhat different. Also, which iron head in your current offering would play close to the Tour Cavity Forged?

Tom Wishon

LEE Closest iron in my line to the old Tour Cavity forged iron from Golfsmith (if this was pre 2002, it was my design) would be the 565MC. 575MMC cavity would be too small compared to the old GS TC forged. 565 is much closer in all aspects but even a little higher in MOI. I’m 67 and prone to senior moments of memory but I do not recall that I ever had Precision make the Superlite steel shaft. I recall that the Superlite as it is has only been made by Apollo. Current Superlite is a little more tip… Read more »

Tom,
Yes it helped a lot. Love the look of the 565’s. Thinking of updating. I was aware that the Golfsmith T C Forged was your design. Best
deign I have ever played. Thanks again

Thanks and much appreciated. The TC forged came about because Scott Verplank, who GS had on contract to play the designs I created, wanted a forging but more forgiveness in his #2, 3, 4 to go with the blade #5 to PW in the Tour Cavity model I had previously done. You can’t just do long irons in a new forging so I did the whole set and Scott played the 2, 3, 4. I recall he won a few events on the tour with that mixed set and played the 2002 Ryder Cup with them too.

Hello Tom,
I played Taylor Made R7 TP Irons with True Temper Dynamic gold SL R300 (swing speed 85 mph) , what differences with S2S superlight ? What shaft flex Should i use with sterling irons ?
Thank you
Pierre

Tom Wishon

Pierre Thanks for your interest for some information. We’re always happy to help. The S2S Superlite and Dynamic Gold SL shafts have small differences between them. The Superlite is about 8 grams lighter in weight than the DG SL. But the DG SL is a bit stiffer in the tip section than is the Superlite. If you are a golfer with a late to very late release on the downswing coming into the ball, you might possibly notice that the Superlite feels very slightly softer right when you release the club to hit the shot. But not by a lot.… Read more »

Hi Tom, I was wondering if the S2S WISHON Superlite steel shafts would for me in a set of the Sterling irons my 7iron swing speed is 75 mph.

Tom Wishon

MIKE: Since you did not tell me anything about your swing motion characteristics, I will have to try to answer your question by telling you what swing types the Superlite shaft is designed for. With a raw uncut shaft weight of 100 grams, that means when the shafts are cut and put into a Sterling set at 8 iron length, the shafts will all weigh around 85 grams. That light of a shaft is best for golfers who, 1) are average to below average in strength, 2) have a smooth to passive to just average amount of downswing force in… Read more »

Hi Tom
I am using a project x6.0 shaft. Which type of your shafts are most similar?
Thanks

Tom Wishon

MARCO
That would be an S2S Stepless steel iron shaft and in S flex but with +1/2″ additional tip trim for each shaft over what we prescribe as standard for the S flex tip trims for each shaft in the set.

Great info Tom, thanks so much!

Tom Wishon

Always our pleasure to help with the best information – because goodness knows there is a lot of poor information out there !!
HA!

Hi Tom. My 5 iron speed is in the mid 80’s but I don’t think I want a heavy steel shaft. What are my options, since it seems like this shaft ops out at 80mph? Would I need to look at the Black graphite?
thanks
Mike

Tom Wishon

MIKE: If you wanted a shaft weight higher than the 85g weight of the Black graphite iron shaft and around the 95-100g weight of the SuperLite, you can tip trim the Superlite additionally to push the flex up. Each additional half inch of tip trim over the norm for the S flex will raise the swing speed rating by @ 2.5mph. So if you wanted the 95-100g steel of the SuperLite for an 85mph swing speed, you could tip +1″ over the norm for each iron head and be OK. But if you are OK with the graphite, I can… Read more »

I have recently had these S2S SuperLite Steel shafts fitted by Richard Kempton in the the UK. It is early days and with winter golf it isn’t easy to get the practice in, but initial signs are good. The club head feels more responsive (Wishon 555c heads), as do the shafts compared to my previous Black True Temper stiff ones. My little draw has returned and I am more that happy with these . . lets hope the season brings success and my handicap lowers a little too! Thank you Tom and Richard for all your help.

Best feel of any lightweight steel.
