I have been looking at ping i200 for awhile. I am a little weird I learn how the play golf with Wilson Staffs back in the seventies over the years playing different sets of clubs it seems every time I go to game improvement clubs I play worst. My handicap is around fifteen and I was thinking game improvement clubs will help me but it gets worse.  I playing Titleist AP1 and they fill like shelves. Today I hit the Taylormade M1 Mizuno forge balance JPX 900 Taylormade p770 and the Ping i200. The club that had the smallest dispersion was the i200's. The shaft was the stock AWT 2.0 stiff shaft.  
My question is should I go with the stiff or regular shaft?
Here are my numbers.

7 iron

My average numbers 
club head speed 74.3 
ball speed 101mph
launch angle 24.6
side spin 315 L rpm
backspin 3463
Total spin 3501
peak height 31 yards
average Carry 145.33
Total distance 159.42
offline 2 yards

Whichever one you get fitted for. And I believe Ping (and most other companies) will fit for free if you are buying from them.

I would say your spin looks really low. LPGA players average 104 ball speed, but 6700 rpm spin. you are getting nearly half the spin rate for only 3 mph difference in ball speed.

What type of machine did you see these number on?

Take a look at this Ping shaft chart to see where different models place:

 

Ping Shaft Diagrams

The AWT 2.0 shaft features:

  • Regular 98 grams / Mid high launch
  • Stiff 104 grams / Mid launch
  • XS 119 grams /Mid-low launch

The best thing to do would be continue with the fitting. It's free from Ping (and most other companies) if you buy new irons.

I went to another local golf shop and checked the ping shaft chart looks like I need to go to Regular.  Thanks, all.

It doesn't really work like that. You are spending the cash, why not get fitted for what you really need?

I should have been a little clearer.  That was a fitting. It was not a complete fitting but going from stiff to regular was a big difference.

    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
