I recently picked up a set of Nike VRS Forged irons with Nippon 950GH HT shafts in Stiff. Loved them on the range, high trajectory but not overly so.
Just as background, 15hcp and dropping, low of 12hcp in the past. Driver SS on a Trackman was 108-110, 6i 89-91mph.
I've played the Nikes a few rounds, love the feel and generally hitting the ball well. My "stock" 7i with them is 170yds. In the past I've had about a half club on this, but trying to develop a smoother swing. I've noticed on a couple occasions when I put a very good swing on them, I actually lose distance. I've seen it with a 7i and 9i, ball has the ballooning trajectory, hangs in midair, then seems to drop straight down. In the past I've played Dynalite Gold S300s and never seen this. Do you think it's possible the Nippons are spinning too much at times? Can't really find too much direct info comparing spin rate between True Temper and Nippon shafts.
It's not bad enough for me to swap them out, just trying to think through it.
