Spotted: True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 wedge shafts

Published

on

We spotted new True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 wedge shafts at the 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic. The shafts, which are likely to measure around 115 grams based on the nomenclature, are designed as lightweight options for golfers who are already playing lightweight irons shafts, according to a True Temper representative.

As iron shafts are trending lighter in today’s game — even on the professional ranks — it’s only right that shaft companies offer lighter-weight wedge shafts to help bridge the gap in weight between irons and wedges. True Temper itself recently released Dynamic Gold 120 shafts for those who want a lighter feel, but still want the classic True Temper performance.

According to True Temper, the Dynamic Gold 115 shafts will be for those who have iron shafts measuring under 110 grams.

“The DG 115 wedges are for players using lighter weight iron shafts (<110gr) that want DG performance but don’t want to have the large shaft weight gap to standard DG,” said a True Temper representative in our forums.

    I guess I am missing something with this article and your comment about heavier graphite shafts. Where in the article does it mention these are made from graphite? They look to be stepped steel to me.

    Seems like True Temper playing catch up and copying some of what Nippon has to offer. This looks really close to the Nippon 115 wedge shaft. Also funny how True Temper released the Dynamic Gold 120, much like the Modus Tour 120 which has been available for a couple years, bet the profile is pretty similar as well. Innovation at its best by the top steel shaft company in the country.

    Well you keep asking questions, and that’s good, that you show how very little you really know.
    Graphite shafts a scam? What an eejit comment. Lets see you fit my 75 year old mother with the old DG S300 steel shafts in her driver and compare that to the new 35 gram graphite shaft and see which one she can swing the best. Got it? See, there is no scam. You’re just clueless. Very disrespectful and childish, you are.

      By only looking at Tour players and your better players you are only looking at a VERY small sample size of the entire golf market. For a lot of aging golfers (which are keeping the golf industry alive) graphite is a necessity., not only for its lightweight properties which allow them to achieve more distance with their slower swing speeds but also for the vibration reduction properties which helps relieve pain in their hands on every shot they hit.

      Even looking at better golfers, all the way up to tour players, Sneds and Kuch both play graphite iron shafts in a middleweight class with the Aerotech SteelFiber 95cw shafts. Although a compromise between full graphite and full steel shafts, the Aerotech provides different launch characteristics that fit these players swings the best.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best ball for players with slower swing speeds?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ghoul31 who created a thread dedicated to finding the ideal golf ball for players with slower swing speeds. Our members have their say on what is the ball most suited to slower swing speeds, with a variety of models receiving a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Hogan9: “My SS is 80 to 85. I play the Titleist AVX. Many people on these forums tell it’s wrong for me. I’ve tried several brands and types over the last year ( Pro-V-1 and 1X, Cally Supersoft and Chrome Soft, TM TP5X, Wilson Duo Soft and the Snell MTB. The AVX gives me the best overall performance for my game. I’ve had to slightly adjust to how it reacts on chips and pitches, but the extra distance off the tee is well worth it. “
  • North Butte: “Maybe 90mph driver swing on a good day. Driver 205-ish hit 6-iron from 150. Pro V1x but I have played AVX, B330, TP5 with pretty much similar results to my favorite V1x. Also played the Chrome Soft for a while but it seemed to fly a little low and sometimes have trouble holding greens (or maybe I just didn’t give it a long enough chance to know for sure).”
  • Hat Trick: “Pro V1X – Spin and higher launch keeps it in the air longer, but at the same time that spin holds the greens – SS 96-98 mph.”
  • Kmac: “My SS is right around 95-100, and I find the QST to the perfect for my game. I will also play the AVX or Chrome Soft Truvis. But for the money, nothing beats the QST.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Single length irons stunting development?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rbark11 who has sparked an interesting debate over single length irons in our forums. Rbark11 has been playing single length irons for the past seven months, and he is concerned that he may have issues changing back to regular length irons. Our members give their take on the matter, as well as discussing single length irons in general.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mcs4: “No, it will not. Both my father and I are currently playing Cobra One Length irons after decades of playing variable length irons. It took both of us maybe a few rounds to feel comfortable with the switch. This weekend I played a round with my old irons, and it was different but not a big deal. My opinion is that there are pros and cons with each approach, but I don’t think picking one will make any particular negative impact on your ability to later switch to the other.”
  • Quadra: “I’ve played both. Right now I am back to VL clubs ( Wishon 560 irons). Find VL gives me more shot-making options. With uneven lies, especially with the ball above or below foot level, the shot seems easier with a more upright or flatter lie, rather than trying to manipulate a shot from clubs with only a single length/lie. VL = more shot possibilities.”
  • Aucaveman: “I played Cobra ftbo for a year. Shot my best scores ever. Our club switched to Mizuno exclusively, so I had my first real fitting. I switched to the 919 forged and had to sell the Cobras to fund the mizunos. Really wished I hadn’t. I really liked the Cobras. The shafts in the Mizuno’s are better suited for me but had I put the same shafts in the Cobras; I’d prob been better off. At some point, I’ll prob do it and go back to one lengths. I was perusing eBay yesterday actually.”
  • Brandons68: “I think that the consistency you gain from SL irons is pretty great. I have not played them personally, but have talked to several people that have, and they really like the feel of the irons and the fact that they swing every iron the same because they are all the same length.”
