Iron fitting

Main idea is irons shafts and choosing/selecting something thatll fit my swing. 

I've got quite a quick swing, I'm hitting at 7000ft above sea level an 8 iron 185 yards/7 iron 195 yards. I've been playing a regular set of Ap2 716s with project x 95 gram shafts. I am aware I need something stiffer. 

Driver club head spead is about 110<mph 

I kinda need to figure out what sort of weight iron I'd need and if stiff would be good or x stiff ? 

Dynamic gold S300 or S400 ? What would the weight difference influence? 

Or go x100 shafts ? 

Cheers

Do you have access to a fitter? Really can't know with much accuracy unless you get on a monitor and see what works for you. If you aren't able to be fitted another way which will take some money to blow is to order one club, say a 7i, of new or used AP2 716 with an S300 and S400 and see what works best for you.

Just fyi, the difference between S300 and 400 is about 2-3 grams. That weight is further stretched out over the length of the shaft. You will not see a difference between them while playing them. S200 and S400 exist because some DGs fall outside of the manufacturing tolerances, hence they are sold as 200 and 400.

I will tell you that if you are around 110 driver speed, then sub 100 shafts probably aren't necessary or helping you. You could look at the 130g stuff (DGs, PX, Nippon Modus3 130, etc), but most people are best suited in that 105-115g range.

    • My kids - all four of them - shag my foam golf balls when we go for walks.  I take a nine iron and rip shots that they field like outfielders.  Drew, my athlete and most avid golfer, has a running total of 49 catches.  Caitlin has caught about five.  Will tracks them pretty well, but he hasn't caught one yet.  Emma just watches.
    • The Gentlemen My wife really loved this movie, but it was a bit slow compared to other Guy Ritchie films.  The "gang" activity seemed kind of forced.  Scramble for par.
    • I've used the M3 but prefer the R7, I think it's primarily because of the difference in shaft and lie loft angles. Has anyone tried to match the difference of your preferred driver to the latter model based on the fact it should be better. I have the R7 set with all the weights in the fade position and it's 8.5deg, my M3 standard 9.5deg which means if I set it to 8.5deg I open the face? It would also mean that the shaft will play a little differently as I've altered the spine and flo therefore would you say I need to remove and reset the grip and adapter? If you tried this with your new and improved driver head did you find it successful, plz advise so I can decide if it's worth pursuing?
