Wilson Staff Iron Shaft Flexes

14 posts in this topic

I've noticed a lot of the Wilson Staff irons come with "Uniflex" shafts... Is this a happy-medium between Regular and Stiff flex?

I've been searching for a set of new Ci7's but it's tough to find them in Stiff flex.

Thanks

Medium, yes. Happy, well that is up to you. I am a borderline guy that is now playing regular flex irons. I hit the callaway uniflex and didn't mind the shaft.

Thanks. I've played stiff shafts in all of my clubs for the past few years... but recently my transition has been less aggressive to work on my control and ball striking. I'm a bit hesitant to order a Uniflex, so I might just hold on until I can find a Stiff set somewhere.

These online shops are weird with pricing.. some sites offer them for $199, others $299... then you have guys on Ebay selling used sets for $275 lol

The wilson ultra lite steel shafts in uniflex will play soft if you prefer a stiff shaft they are like a mid dynalite r/s higher launch softer tip. The callaway uniflex was either a rifle or Dynamic gold depending on the iron with a single hard step. So a heavier shaft in the callaway versus a lighter shaft in the wilson.

I have 2 sets of WS irons, the Ci7s in a stiff TX-105 steel, and the Di9s with uniflex TX-99 steel (the weights being 105g and 99g respectively). Though I could get away with stiff flex, I tend to play regular flex shafts for a bit more kick. To be honest, the stiff TX-105 in the Ci7 is a bit too stiff for me, which is one reason I stopped playing them. If OP was a lefty, I could sell you my set (very lightly used). The TX-105 are definitely not a whimpy stiff flex. The uniflex shafts in my Di9s (technically fat shafts) are great for me--definitely a nice happy medium, not too stiff, not too whippy (and I like the 99g weight--I don't need a real heavy shaft).

So while you still may require a stiff shaft, the uniflex could work for you, but obviously you'd need to try it out for yourself. And I am not sure what the specific uniflex shaft is in the Ci7s, since the Ci7s were only offered stock with the TX-105 shafts, regular or stiff, at least initially.

I swing easy so I am fine with the Uniflex that came in mine. I was expecting R, but apparently Wilson made a change late in the Ci7's lifecycle away from the TX shaft to the Uniflex shaft.

I only have a SW with the S-flex TX shaft, so it is kind of hard to gauge, but it doesn't feel that much different than the other shafts to me. My guess is they're kind of a "firm" flex, between reg and stiff.

edit: I paid $199 for 4-GW around Christmas 09, and another $30ish for the SW. Definitely don't pay $300! They're nice clubs IMO but they're easily had for $200 new.

Thanks for the replies everybody. I don't swing too hard anymore so the Uniflex may work for me. I just put a bid on a set of Mizuno MP-60's which end in about 20minutes, if I don't win them I'm going to search for a set of Ci7's and give the Uniflex shafts a shot.

$230 plus shipping for the Mp-60's. Pretty darn good deal considering every other auction I saw on Ebay going for at least $260. They should be here on Monday (according to FedEx) so I'll definitely be hitting the range with them and probably taking them out for 9 hole after :) Pretty excited!

Solid deal then, congrats. There is currently a MP60/MP33 mixed set for >$200 that seems like a good deal, too.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
