How many of you wrx'ers play this shaft???  What are some of the pros and cons of this shaft compared to the ever so popular PX and TTBG??  Thanks!

I'm perplexed by these shafts because the specs say they are too much shaft for me but every time I try them, I'm shocked I can hit them comfortably.  I actually hit them higher than my stiff TT Lite XL.  Go figure.

Oh, and I did come back to TT after a long stint with PX.

By far the best shaft tor my irons and my swing.  They are a bit heavy for me as I  am past 65, but nothing else I have demoed , feels as good.  Great ironshafts!  I also like the Sensicore option which enhances the feel IMO.

Very solid feeling shaft.  Good control of your ball flight with these.  I voted 4 only b/c I've never tried anything else so it's tough for me to vote "BEST".  I hear the Rifle ProjectX shafts are pretty sweet.  Like to try those someday.

One of the best shafts around, IMO. I had a set of Ben Hogan Edge CFT's with 3 (regular) flex which i had no idea what that meant. I placed one in my 6-iron at 37.5" and got the best results and could be aggressive with my swing, experimenting with trajectory at ~185 yards. It gave such an amazing feel, way better than the S300! It was awkward going back to the other regular-flexed irons 20 or so grams lighter though.

If you have a Driver swing speed of 105, do you think X100 would be a bit too strong for me in my irons? I like to go after my iron s pretty hard and I have a quick swing for what it worth. Also if I tend to fight a Hook, from my regular flex in my MP32 irons. Do you think this will give me a better dispersion and lesser Hook action?

I know these are a lot of questions, thanks for your advice in advance.

You need to try an s300 first, x100 will probably be too much...  But get those regulars flex out of there

I've had PX 5.5, 6.0, & 6.5.  But, I went to DGX100s and found my game.  Granted I tried DG's SL, HL and a few others before feeling comfortable.  Nippons also felt good, but didn't work for the tight dispersion I want.  The KBS ball flight was hard for me to dial in.  I am a feel player who goes hard at pins with the shortest club I can.  These keep it lower thru the wind and hold the greens.

Can someone help me with these question? What is sensicore (padded material)? Can it be retrofitted into a shaft that doesn't have it? What advantages are gained if any from this?  Thanks in advanced.

Negative. A shaft either has a sensicore, or it doesnt. No in between.

I have had sensicore s300's but not in the x100. Great feeling shaft and would recommend it to anybody. Seems like Sensicore X100's would be the next step for me.

The sensicore is a big difference from what I remember. Very smooth, less vibrations on misses.

While the sensicores feel peachy and all,  when I hit a toe ball I want that feedback,  when its 2 grooves to low I want that feedback.  It seems like it would be like driving a sportscar with a mushy steering feel,  not for me.

I understand your point but with a shaft as stiff as x100's are, I want them to be as soft and mushy as possible. Stiff enough to keep up with the swing, but dampend through impact.

Oldish thread but I just fitted some X100's to my Ping S57 Irons. Originally they had the ZZ's.

So far I'm thrilled with the feel. Maybe I'm still in the honeymoon phase but I like:

a) The extra weight.
b) Flight seems the same except in 3 and 4 which seems lower.
c) From what I can tell I've picked up around 10' on my 8 iron. I might have just been swinging harder cause I was excited with having new toys ;-)
d) Not as sharp a feel to off centre hits as the ZZ's. This could be a side effect of the extra weight.

I'm happy so far :-)

After years of thinking these shaft were too stiff for me I decided to give them a try.  I purchased a set of Ping i5's with these shafts and fell in love with them.  I've always struggled with hitting the ball too high and these shafts cured that problem.  It's easy to see why so many pros hit them.

I purchased a new set of Bridgestone Combo irons this spring and they came with PX 5.5's.  They generally feel dead and seem to not go anywhere.  
   During a lesson, my teacher let me try his pw and 7 iron with DG S300's.  Oh my, what a difference.  Lively more boring trajectory with more distance. I am replacing the PX's with S300's tomorrow.

I played a set of MP-67s with PX 5.5s in them and they were meant to be suited to my swing speed but no chance they were extremely weak i bought a set of Callaway X forged 08 and they were fitted with DG X100s and are amazing best shaft ever in my opinion

I got into PX a few years ago, started with 5.5 and went to 6.5. I'm kinda steep so I end up bending the tips on the PX. Every single PX shaft I've had in a club, the tip has bent. Went back to DG and decided to try out the X100. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL OF MY LIFE?!??!! Best shaft ever, piercing flight with great feel and distance.
