How does the 120 flex compare to standard DG? Does an X100 120 = X100 DG or is the 120 slightly softer due to the lighter weight?

Does anyone have launch monitor numbers comparing standard DG to 120?

DG X100 is DG 120 X100 and so on.

Is the 105 being released the same that is being offered in the new P790's?

It is! P790s just have a sticker label instead of a heat transfer applied label.

is the 105 close in performance to the SL ?

+1
An updated SL perhaps?
Yes- I have a similar question.  The True Temper website lists DGSL as low launch, low spin and the DG 105 as Low launch, mid spin.

Which spins less? DGSL or DG 105?

I am a HUGE fan of DGSL and I am just trying to understand the difference??...

Thanks!

The 105 is an updated version of the SL that focuses on a much improved overall feel and will spin slightly more than SL. The wall thickness in the tip section has increased in the 105 as opposed to the SL, producing this improved feel. Some feedback we always got from the SL was that it was a little harsh and could have improved feel, so the goal set out by our engineers was to offer a lightweight option with the similar Dynamic Gold characteristics while still maintaining the Dynamic Gold feel.

Thanks for the pre-release snapshot.  Could you give information on the balance point of the new shafts?  Could they be installed and maintain the swingweight of older dynamic gold shafts without the need for heavier heads?

Yes, each of our lightweight Dynamic Gold offerings will swingweight to the same or within 1 swing point of standard Dynamic Gold. We are able to do this by using our Variable Wall Technology which allows us to alter the wall thickness throughout the shaft in certain areas.

Why would someone choose to go with a constant weight 120/105 vs say an AMT?  I'm a long time DG user and was thinking of going lighter in the long irons only so I'm torn between going 105 across the board or going with S300 AMT?

Personal preference of the player will be the biggest factor. Constant weight is something most golfers are used to and it gives an option for a golfer looking for a certain weight range throughout the set, whether it be 105g, 120g or standard DG in a 130g range. AMT gives an option to a golfer who still likes a heavier feel in their shorter irons but wants their irons, as they progress longer, to be lighter and easier to swing.

Let's say someone wanted lighter in the long and short irons but variable weight throughout.  At which iron would you switch between the DG AMT and DG 120?  Or are you going to come out with a DG 120 AMT?

not everyone needs flighting help. if you have no issues with your long irons and getting them to the proper apex -- you might be just fine with constant weight shafts; but if you are solid with the short irons but have trouble elevating the longs...AMT might be up your alley

Do you know if the DG105 will become a stock shaft for Mizuno?
