I know there has been a ton of discussion on here about when is the best time to have juniors hitting adults clubs. I was just curious as to what shafts everyone is putting in their kids clubs when they do go to the OEM irons. I know putting Flynn shafts in them is an option but if you are buying the clubs brand new that isn't an option. My brother recently bought my nephew the Cobra Forged Tec Black irons and he debated between the steel and graphite shafts. He went with the graphite shafts and that seems to be the smart choice for my nephew because he is small for his age. Those shafts are the Recoil ES 760 shafts and they seem like good ones but I wanted to know what everyone else was using in their kids irons.

Kuro Kage TiNi in the irons. Diamana in the woods. Can't tell exact specs since I'm sitting in a lobby waiting on my next meeting.

I can second the Kuro Kage TiNI in the irons and wedges. Can't beat them it's what we use now in Irons and wedges.  Also had good luck with UST MP6 shafts (Have someone taper them). If your ordering new irons work with a fitter to see what you can get as they may have more choices but the above 2 have been cost effective for me.

If your looking for used irons look online for Tileist ap1 in ladies flex they have the Kuro Kage shaft already in them. I have seen them go for under $300 a set. Even brought my wife a set of them and it really helped her game.

Zelos 7 R2 for irons/wedges when first transitioning from graphite.  For woods, have a fitter cut down a ladies/senior flex (those will already have characteristics from which  your junior can benefit) to correspond with appropriate us kids length.

The KBS TGI Tour Graphite is also a great shaft to look at.  Comes in 50, 60, 70 and 80 grams.  I didn't have much knowledge of this until my son tested it a couple of weeks ago.

Had these on my son's last cobra set. I really like the tgi 50. When we do any shaft change I'm going back to them.

$50 a shaft seems like a a lot.
