Have a set of Parallel Dynamic Gold DGIX200 shafts. Looking at the TT specs for steps, etc this looks like it would be an S200 shaft, as it has 9 small steps, then 2 large steps. But the "X200" in the model number confuses me. Is this an S200 or X200?

Thanks,
Mark

u=universal (parallel tip)
dg = dynamic gold
i=iron
x200=x200, ie a bit heavier than the more common x100

if you look at the tt specs on x vs s shafts in the dg's, they are very similar except for the last step near the butt end, which might even be below the grip.

Right - Looking at the pdf from the TT site, the R3/S3 have 9 1.88" steps, then 2 3" steps.  the X should have 8 1.88" steps, then the 2 3"steps.  These shafts have 9 1.88" steps (no grips so I can see them all).  So the steps indicate it would be a S (or R), but silkscreen says X200.  Very Strange.

I'm going to go and recount the steps... ;)

Definitely 9 steps plus 2 steps...I'm flummoxed. Agree it seems like it would be x200 but with the discrepancy on the steps who knows...

Just to throw a bit more confusion into the mix, I got a set of irons with DGR300 labels on the shafts, but they are definitely either X or S. Step pattern says S, but distance to first step says X. And they are very very stiff.

The tip sections for the X & S flexes are the same 10.125"
The tip section for the R flex is 12.125"
Therefore the only difference between the 200/300 and X is the uncut weight with the R being the lightest and the X the heaviest.
Hope this clears up any confusion

Did some backwards math, assuming std tip trim for the 3i, total raw length of 41".  Minus 1" tip, leaves two inches cut off the butt to equal the current 38" shaft length.  Since there is still just under 8" of butt left, that plus the 2" syncs up with raw butt length of 9.88 - so I'm going to call this an X, As the R & S only have 6 and 8" of total raw butt length to begin with.

I'm new to the parallel world, everything I've worked with in the past has been taper.  In fact, I expected these heads to be tapers and had a choice of a few sets of shaft to put in them, but when I pulled the shafts they turned out to be parallel.  So at some point someone reamed the heads to install the current shafts.  Surprises are always fun ;)

As luck would have it, I just happened to have the aforementioned parallel DG's laying around, but had expected to put a set of taper S300 sensicores in.  Oh well, might soft step them since I haven't hit a 3i in ages...  Or I guess I could shim my taper shafts.  I've shimmed 335 to 350 for woods with fine results - but never irons.  I'll check in to that also.

Thanks all,
Mark
