Assuming you're putting an 8 iron shaft in a 7 iron (hard stepped) and you still retain the standard length how does that really change the true flex? With flighted PX the ball flight would be lower, more 8 iron like in the 7 iron but in the 7 iron distance? So we're not really changing the flex as much as the ball flight?

I have PX 6.0s in one set of clubs but am interested in a little more spin, which I understand DGs to provide. I play the PX 6.0s .5" over standard length. Given the general guideline that PX 6.5 = DG X100, how would a PX 6.0 that's .5" over length compare with a DG X100 that's .5" over length? If my understanding of the impact of additional length to flex is correct, it would seem that this would bring the relative flexes closer together.

They haven't send me any for DEMO. So it's hard for me to understand if their demo program is a bit tight.
I know for sure KB tour feels good, but fly a hair higher than normal DG. It reminds me of the old precision steps! Freq higher but doesn't play or feel as the number says IMO due to soft smooth feel. KB should spin a hair higher than PX too IMO.
Anyway, I don't want this thread to go off topic. You might want to open another one out side this sticky.

the project x flighted has progressive kick points throughout the set. The scoring irons (pw-8) have kick points nearer the hands, providing a lower more predictable flight for better control over the shot. the mid irons (7-5) have mid kick points helping the player launch the ball slightly higher, and the long irons (4-2) have low kick points and softer tips helping to get the ball up the in air and land softly.
The average player would probably benefit from the flighted PX for the better all around set - The player with more control over his or her swing would most likely go with the standard project x for complete control.
hope this helps,

I am disappointed that there is so much subjective info here instead of some facts...

I think you've got it the other way around. Dynamic Gold is easily the most widely used shaft on tour.

DGS300 = 5.8FCM
DGS300hs = 6.1FCM
PX5.5ss = 5.8FCM
PX5.5 = 6.0FCM
PX5.5hs = 6.2FCM
PX6.0ss = 6.3FCM
PX6.0 = 6.5FCM
PX6.0hs = 6.7FCM
DGX100ssx2 = 6.2FCM
DGX100ss = 6.5FCM
DGX100 = 6.8FCM
DGX100hs = 7.1FCM
Assumptions: using Joe's numbers & given that stepping shafts adjusts flex by 1/3.
DGS400 will flex virtually the same as DGS300, but weigh a few grams heavier.
From: TrueTemper Sports/Fitting Works
What are the differences in performance characteristics between the Project X and Dynamic Gold shafts?
Project X will launch slightly higher (0.5°) and with slightly less spin (200 rpm) than Dynamic Gold due to its slightly softer tip section and firmer mid section. The firmer mid section of Project X will give the player a slightly stiffer feel compared to Dynamic Gold. Both shafts are designed for the better player or stronger swinger seeking shot control with their irons and a lower, penetrating ball flight. Players with quicker tempos may prefer the heavier weight of Dynamic Gold.
We have seen several Tour players switch back and forth between the two models (Davis Love III & Camilo Villegas are two that come to mind). At The Players Championship this year, there were 66 sets of Dynamic Gold in play and 23 sets of Project X.
...if a player is currently playing Dynamic Gold S300 and wanted to try Project X, we would suggest that he start with the 5.5 as it would be the closest comparison to S300 (and vice versa).
..................Project X 5.5.......... Dynamic Gold S300
Weight........... 118g........................... 130g
Torque............ 1.7°............................ 1.7°
Flex Point..... mid/high...................... high

I don't want to make this thread to go off topic. Any other question/s should open up another thread on the regular clublab section.

A Typical field on the Tour is more than 120 players playing True Temper and Project X, while FST/KBS is 15-18, Nippon is 10-13 and Aerotech about 4.
TT is in total domination on the tour on Iron and wedge shafts
