Difference in wedge spin is significant between premium and non premium golf balls. Spin off the driver isn't that big of a difference (300-500 rpm). I doubt a more premium golf ball would cause you to slice way more than a non-premium golf ball. 

I would look for a 3-piece urethane cover golf ball if you want something with more spin around the green.

This is the answer I did not understand:

Then you should look at your technique not your clubs. Or both.

the "or both" part 

I'm saying look at your technique, but your clubs might eke out another degree or two of launch angle. They might contribute, but I think they're the minority contribution.

I agree it is my technique but as my unnamed sport announcer friend says: You play better than 97% of 65+ year old so quit complaining.

Irons cobra F9 1 length regular flex graphite

Driver Ping G410 sft with speeder 365 reg flex shaft typical drive is 225 with slight fade I am left handed

I try to control my driver swing so as to hit the ball straight 

I am a pretty good chipping and pitching 

Can i mention we have practically identical sets except I have a Callaway Mavrik Max. I'm 5'11, and I have the Atmos +1" length R. I have a 82 mph with the 7 iron (and with my 6i - PW) since they're the same length) according to my Garmin G80 Approach launch monitor. I play the ball dead center. I can hit a high fade with these clubs. I also can hit a hard straight punchy shot with a lot of spin that will stop on a green if I want. Depends upon what I want to hit. 

It's not a shaft issue. It's your technique. Before you dump a grand into new clubs you might want to take a lesson. OR make a video of your swing and put it up into the My Swing section of the forum and let @iacas take a look at it. We all get into bad habits at times. God knows I do. 

And since we got into golf balls too,... I play the Srixon Z-Star. If you like Bridgestone, look at the Bridgestone Tour B RXS (White & Green Box).

There was a Callaway demo day at the club today. I hit a few shots with trackman with both my 7 and the Mavrek 7. Results were similar considering the Callaway's are 3 degrees stronger. The Callaway guy said I do not hit the ball high because of my swing. He asked what I shot today, 74. He asked why do I want to change. I have come to the conclusion that I deloft the clubs at impact giving me extra distance and lower ball flight. In other words my 7 acts like a 6. As far as lessons at my advanced age I want to avoid them I am happy shooting 75 to 80 with an occasional "my age"

    • Day 356 The holes in my net have become unmanageable, and I've ripped holes in the target cloth blocking the holes in the net now too. While I wait for my warranty replacement (not sure how Rukket earns money considering all the nets I've been through), I just hit some 50% speed 5-irons with the feeling of the club head moving before the handle to start transition, and tried to keep the trajectory low to hit an integral part of the net.
    • When you missed that one foot putt did you tell him your name was Bill Buckner?  😁
    • That's a great hat! I have one just like it, plus various other Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins hats. I played with a Yankees fan one day while wearing a Red Sox hat,and I told him that he was a very lucky man because he could look at my hat for four hours.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Very wet, cartpaths only. Plugged drives all day. Played something that kind of resembled golf. Not going to bother analyzing anything since it's December 3rd. Was just happy to get out on a nice course. Highlights of the day were making birdie from a penalty area on #9 and the twisting sand cart paths I drove golf cart rally on.
    • I doubt you were actually swinging slower. Did you have any clubhead data?
