Switching from DG x100s

16 posts in this topic

So I've been swinging x100s for the last 3 years in my irons, (been playing golf for 4).  I bought the x100s on a hunch and they've worked great! Best part about them is the tight dispersion!  I'm looking to pick up some new sticks and was thinking about changing to project x 6.0 because the x100 may be too stiff for me as I have a 105ss with a driver, but they work.  s300 is too lose I think. I lose shots left and they're noticeably higher launching than the x100s for me.  Should I stick with the x100s or try the px 6.0?

KBS Tour S+ might be a good option if you want something in between a S300 and X100.  I'm personally not a huge fan of the PX shafts, just because they feel a little boardy to me.

If you like the X100 other than stiffness, a soft stepped X100 will get you into the same 6.5 FCM range as the PX 6.0 and KBS Tour S+.

I have S300 and PX 5.5 (no X100 though) and like Mike said they seem like very different animals to me as well. Not that I dislike the PX 5.5, just generally prefer the S300 more.

Have never had any KBS shafts.

SOFT-STEP the X-100's . I was in the same boat as you and it was the best move I've made. Dispersion is still just as tight. Only go with project X if you want less spin.

The only worry about project x I have is, from being a lighter weight, I'll lose distance compared to the x100.  I feel like the heft is part of the reason I get amazing distance.

That's not why. The heavier the mass your swinging the slower the club head speed. That's why Tiger was using a 100+ gram steel driver shaft this week; too slow him down. Dynamic Gold is great for high speed players, because of the weight and medium trajectory flight. Project X is a Tip stiff shaft and it is great for a higher flight and reducing spin rate. You would actually probably gain a half club or more with the PX. They are two different animals, so try it before you make the switch...

I've hit 6.0 in ap2 before.  Something about my blades with x100 is longer than anything I've ever hit.  I always assumed it was the shaft.

the kbs C-taper 130 stiff has mass, feel and a pretty tight dispersion(not likely to go high left) might be an option to consider.

if your club face tends to be slightly close to the path no shaft will help, when I work with tour players I generally adjust lie angles to get the ball to fly straight once they have a shaft that feels good to them and provides a good trajectory

A lot of better players and pga tour players will adjust there lies to ball flight instead of lie boards...if your miss is a push or a hard hook you should try setting your stand bag behind you on the target line place a stand bag in it's 'legs out' position with the base of the bag a couple inches inside the target line and the top of the bag about even with your right hip and avoid hitting the bag which will most likely feel like your cutting across the ball. most stand bags are about the same plane as a 6 iron when the legs are out. You might consider studying 'D'plane a bit it will really help you out to eliminate big sweeping hooks. good luck to you and your shaft selection.
