  1. Solvent may leave a bad taste??? I don't know.
  2. Please believe me, 50% of the club is the shaft. For me having the correct shaft is more important than having the correct head.
  3. I'm no expert, but unless you are getting too high a ball flight or too much dispersion in your shots a senior shaft is not necessarily bad.
  4. For me the look at address would be key. I have tried but cannot use a combo set where the long irons are much bulkier than the short irons.
  5. Yes you are correct. A word of caution. Trim the shaft AFTER it has been put into the 6i head to make sure you trim it the right length. I made the mistake of trimming my XP95 shafts before installing them into my AP2 irons. I figured half an inch difference from one to the other. Guess what, the hosels are not the same length. Shorter irons have longer hosels than longer irons (at least in my AP2). So you really need to install the shaft first, then measure and trim it to proper length. By the way, for me soft stepping the XP95 once hardly made any difference. I think some shafts respond more noticeably to softstepping than others.
  6. I've done it before. My Titleist AP2 pitching wedge is just 1/4" shorter than the 9 iron, so using a 9 iron shaft on the pitching wedge is like a half of one softstep, hardly noticeable. Using the 9 iron shaft on a gap wedge, which is 1/2" shorter then the 9 iron, that would be one softstep, but again, barely noticeable. Go ahead and don't worry about it.
  7. I'm sixty years old and hitting the ball farther than ever because I've been improving my technique in the last year. Focus on technique. It will take time though.
  8. I'm just a mid handicapper, but for me MOI fitting is way much better than swingweight ftting of clubs. For me produces much more consistent swings.
  9. Same thing has happened to me several times. Even if you know exactly where the ball landed, it's so soggy and muddy you still can't find the ball.
  10. I have owned practically all Ping models of irons, from G Max to i Blade. For me, having the right shaft makes more difference than having the right head. Get fitted first.
  11. Cutting down the shaft by 1.5" affects swingweight a lot. A club that feels too light may mess up your swing.
  12. A draw bias can come not only from offset but also from the position of the center of gravity of the club. I too have the perception that most hybrids are draw biased to some degree, but it's based just on anecdotal evidence.
  13. Some weeks ago I went to a tournament and was lucky to be standing right next to Lee Westwood when he hit a shot from the trees. I looked into his bag and what did I see? Ping clubs of course, but not the new iBlades. He had i200's!!!!
  14. I'm a 60 year old mid handicapper. I use Titleist clubs. For my irons, I use lightweight shafts such as XP 95. For my woods, I use stock Diamana Red lightweight shafts. HOWEVER, for my driver, the Diamana Red was too light!!! It messed up my tempo. Diamana Blue, slightly heavier, works better for me. For me it's very simple, I will try different weight shafts with my eyes closed and just try to FEEL which one is more natural for my swing and tempo. Hope this helps.
  15. My view. I'm 60. As you get older having good technique becomes more important. Use lighter and more flexible shafts, AND take lessons.
