Buying a new set of G10 irons... Shafts???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I'm looking to buy a set of Ping G10 irons, and today I went to range to compare the ZZ-65 shaft and the AWT. The end result? I liked the AWT better, although the ZZ65 shaft was on a set of i15s. I felt like they were just too light, and I couldn't get a feel for the weight.  I actually ballooned the ball with the ZZ65 to my surprise, thinking they would have a lower trajectory for me compared to the AWT shaft.  The AWT shaft I tried with the G15s, and I liked them a lot.  The trajectory was nice and high, but not too high. 


Currently I'm playing a set of Snake Eye Viper irons with standard True Temper "Steel" irons (regular builder shafts).  To my surprise, I found the specs to this shaft to have a high kick point promoting a lower trajectory.  I hit the irons great, nice trajectory, even a little high maybe, although they are regular flex.  I should be using a stiff flex according to my fitting.  I like the lighter shaft of the AWT, but I was also looking into the Dynamic Gold SL shafts as well.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions??? I'm a little hesitant going with the AWT because I think it has a lower kick point, promoting a higher ball flight.  I'm happy with my ball flight now, and I have no trouble getting my 3 iron up in the air also.

 

Thx!!!

Are the XG's the conforming groves?  Is that the only difference with them?  I just bought a G10 3 iron to go with my I10 4-GW and noticed that it had an XG on it.
