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.

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
