Why, what are you trying to do, and what wedge do you use primarily around the greens?

Spinners are not low, but they spin. They do have two flexes, though.

My personal opinion is that you don't get spin from a shaft alone.

This is more how you hit the ball.

A shaft can contribute to that ok, but a shaft that makes you spin the ball??

I think you should check what is in your irons at the moment. And try matching them

to get the same feeling. I use the KBS Tour stiff shaft in irons and wedges. I do get a decent amount off backspin.

You might consider Cleveland wedges.  The last several years of the CG wedge line featured the TRAction (Tip Responsive Action) wedge flex shaft as stock shaft. The TRAction shaft had a more flexible tip for better feel, and a stiffer butt section to promote a lower launch.

This was a variation on the Dynamic Gold S300 shaft.

I cannot tell from the Cleveland promo material if the TRAction shaft is still standard for the 588 Forged (2012) and the two new 588 RTX models.

Personally, I don't enjoy the DG except for the Spinners, in a wedge. A shaft without much kick, as DGs are, imho, are not the best for your 54-60 wedges.

Now for the PW and Gap, I'd say if you don't use them around the greens, just go with your iron shaft.

I've had KBS Hi Rev and the Spinners - I've had good results in the higher lofted wedges with the Hi Rev, and they come in different flexes.

    • Yeah, beginners clubs go through a lot of abuse. Try getting a used set of good clubs. There are quite a few places that have those as well. The thing about the Zevo clubs was their lifetime warranty. I don't know if they still have it, but as a Golfsmith product they were warranted for life. I got shafts replaces and head glued on many times for free. The name brand products like TM or Callaway required shipping back to the manufacturers and could take a couple weeks. Shop around a bit.
    • Hogwash! I bet these people aren't saying Vince WIlfork isnt an athlete. And all he did was stand up and shuffle a few yards most of the time. You tell them to go hit 1000 balls and then go play 72 holes if they dont think golf is a athletic pursuit. If that doesn't work - get a super soaker, fill it with vinegar and water, and make them pay for their ignorance. 
    • Just because there is a maximum score rule, that doesnt mean people will follow it. Same thing with pace of play. I have played tons of courses that have the pace of play guidelines printed on the scorecard, but rounds take over that amount of time because there is nobody from the course out there actively enforcing the pace of play.  And in my own personal experience of non tournament golf, I have NEVER seen someone to come back up to the tee and hit another tee shot once they got out to the fairway/rough and couldnt find their ball. Based on my experience, people coming back up to the tee and rehitting/not hitting a provisional is not the reason for excessively slow rounds.
    • That's good to know. I've been debating between getting this Zevo complete set, or trying to find a decent quality iron set $150 to $250, that I can use with the current driver I have. Only problem is trying to find one new that isn't poor quality, or one used that doesn't look like it's been beaten to hell and back. Gotta love it! 
    • I haven't watched it, but I've read many of the comics when I was a kid. So, heightened other senses. . .Tradeoffs. Hmm, I wonder how much of that applies to golf?   Another topic for the healing lounge. Golf was insulted by a co-worker who doesn't know much about golf today. I told my co-worker that many of my partners think I can't hit far until I start hitting far on the course or range, because I look kind of dumpy. The real reason is that many have known me for years and knew me when I didn't drive this far on average, which actually only happened recently. Then he said "No golfer looks athletic, they all look out of shape. They're not athletes. You look more athletic than any of them." Then I told him about long drive, and he admitted watching some blurb on TV about that and stated "Yes, but that's not golf. Is it?" So, he agreed that long drivers look like athletes, while still stating that PGA Tour players don't look anything resembling athletes. You know what? I agreed with him, because it's kind of true. . . I was suddenly reminded of one of my recent post about "Fattest golfers on the PGA Tour." vs the "Fittest golfers on the PGA Tour."  Off the top of my head, only Rory, Sergio and Camillo. In recent pictures, Dustin looks like a twig. Tiger has skinny calves. Golf needs to heal from this mornings barrage of "We are not athletes." . . .
