Ordered two DG S300 37" wedge shafts from Golfworks. The code on the butt end reads L77199555-5 DGISL300-37. Seeing "SL" makes me think I have Super Lite shafts and not the standard Dynamic Gold.

DGISL 41-37 Dynamic Gold S300 Taper  130 Gr.
DGSLIS3  41-37  Dynamic Gold SL S300 Taper  106 Gr.

So they are the classic DG

The "L" in the "DGISL300" means "long" in this case (well, not sure it is intended to mean that by True Temper, but it's how I think of them).  DG shafts formerly were from 35" to 39".  When they were lengthened to 41" to 37", they added that "L" to distinguish them from the former, shorter, DG tapered shafts.

DGISL could be interpreted (I'm hedging, lol) as "Dynamic Gold Iron Stiff Long."  Meaning, shaft model, what club it's for, then flex, and the L to ID it from older DG shafts.

The "DGSLIS3" Howard mentions for DG SL then falls into place; the model is DG-SL, it's for Irons, and Stiff flex.

Incorrect.  DGISL 300 is the DGS300 shaft not the SL shaft or the long version.  It's the standard shaft in most good players' irons.  There are many here who give bad information.  I suggest that you go to the True Temper sight, find Dynamic Gold and go the PDF shaft info.  It will clearly show that the dgisl 300 is the Dynamic Gold S300.

Before you try to correct anyone on this page, do your homework and read whats actually is written
DGISL 300 means....

D = Dynamic
G = Gold
I  = Iron
S = S flex series (200/300/400)
L = LONG version (#9 iron is 37.00" or 2 inch longer than the old model)
300 = sub flex 300 or weight between 129.5 and 131.5 grams

So this IS the "LONG" version, and the only on the marked now as Tour Weight or 130 grams if you like, so its your correction who is "bad"....

Haha, we all do mistakes, i do them all the time, especially when playing,  but correcting someone with WRONG info is not smart, because that do have the potential to mislead someone who might think "the latest poster is right", but in this case not, but i have to admit that TT shaft codes might be tricky to read if you dont know whats behind the letters and numbers, but my job was to know....
