Shafts or New Clubs.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Bought a set of Nike Forged Pro Combo's like new for $150 bucks. Noticed that i was hooking the ball with every swing. Never really hooked the ball previously unless i was trying to over swing. Took them to Golf Galaxy an found out that the shafts on the clubs are not meant for me because of my high swing speed. So now im trying to decided wether it's a better idea to go ahead and get new shafts and get fitted. Or if it's a better idea to just get some newer clubs.

 

I need stiff steel shafts. Any recommendations on shafts?!

The obvious standard-weight steel shaft choices that you want to try out are TrueTemper Dynamic Gold s300 and Project X 5.5 and/or 6.0.  You might also want to test some KBS Tour stiff shafts.

whats the difference between the 5.5-6.0?

I would get get fitted - both lie board and launch monitor - and decide what shafts you need from there.

 

Then, do the math. Golf shops start at about $10 labor per club for reshaft, plus the cost of the shafts. Assuming 3-PW set, and using GolfWorks 2011 catalog costs, reshaft would cost you:

  • KBS Tour (S): ($25 shafts x 8) + $80 = $280, plus grips
  • DG S300: ($14 shafts x 8) + $80 = $192, plus grips
  • Project X Rifle 6.0: $269 for set + $80 = $349, plus grips

 

Not sure if you can sell the pullout R.flex shafts or not.

 

I am assuming these are the Pro Combo irons from circa 2003, the ones with the punch-hole pattern in the lower back of the clubhead. If this is the case, be aware that that they have an MPF = 337, which puts them in the Classic/Player's playability range (not a lot of forgiveness).

 

You're a 6 HDCP, so you need to decide if you like the original PCs well enough to reshaft. You might try reshafting the 4i and 7i and see if it works.

 

Also consider the 2011 VR Pro Combo irons which sell for around $900 at a golf shop near you.

 

Like everything in golf, it's you call.

Please correct me if im wrong, but the 5.5 is a firm shaft and the 6.0 is a stiff. That compared to the TT DG S300, the S300 would be about a 5.7. Hope this helps.

Appreciate the info.

 

Yea i believe they are the ones you are talking about. Here's a photo- nk510.jpg

 

I bought them for so cheap so i figured i would go ahead and just give them a try. Seems like it might be a better idea to just go ahead an sell them an just invest in a new set of clubs.
