Howard- Need some help. I have been playing the PX Flighted 6.0 shafts forever. So much so I have pulled them twice now and put them into new sets. Well I got my new Titleist 718 AP2's in and don't want to separate the shafts from the 716 heads. I ordered them with Project X 6.5 shafts and while they don't feel overally stiff they feel JUST stiff enough to be annoying and they aren't as forgiving. I have decided to soft step them once ( the PX 6.5 ) and am looking for some thoughts in how stiff they will play compared to the PX Flighted 6.0's. I have never understood how they achieved the flighted shafts. I play DG Tour Issue S400 shafts in my wedges ( 58,54,50,46) and love the way they feel but fear they may be too soft in full shots. . How would a set of s400 shafts play compared to the PX 6.5 shafts soft stepped 1 time. ? thanks in advance
PX flighted is a "mixed set", where tip trim is changed to make them play to the same flex, so when you soft step 6.5 1x, you are getting closer, but that want be the same. Your PXF 6.0 LONG irons is close to PX 6.5 SSx2, so by going SS1 you go in that direction, but not all the way.
6.5 SS1 would still be stiffer than S400 strait in (S400 is very close to RIFLE FCM 6.0, so PX shafts with the same flex letters is a tad stronger)
