I got fitted via the Mizuno fit tool thing today and the shaft recommendations were Project X 6.0 (not a fan of the PX iron shafts), KBS Tour X and the Dynamic Gold XP X100.  The DG XP really intrigues me as I have always loved True Temper shafts.  I am looking for the Dynamic Gold XP shafts and they are only OEM shafts.  When you look at the specs, the Dynalite Gold XPs match the Dynamic Golds.

Is there a difference between the two or is a branding OEM thing?

Dynalite historically have a high flight and Dynamic is low - different step pattern.  I have a set of DG XP's in some Wishon heads and like them.  Trajectory is medium to medium-low.  Wedge shots had enough spin to hold the green.  Just the way I'd expect.

reading the description of both on the TT site, the XP means a higher launch.  I wonder if the Dynamics are just slightly lower than the Dynalite?  I am a very low ball hitter so the higher ball flight is what I need, but the recommendation was for the Dynamic Gold XP so i was just curious.

I use Dynalite Gold XP S300's in my AP2's. They produce much higher spin and higher flight. (For me at least). The regular Dynamic Gold XP S300's I had a much lower launch and the ball would run out more.

EDIT: Both the same distances for me though

The Dynamic Gold XP were exclusive to Mizuno until the start of this year but they are now available as part of the True temper range, so they are readly available from golfsmith, golfworks ect. They have a similar butt stiffness to dynamic gold but have a more responsive tip increasing launch and spin. The tip has some project x technology in it to help retain stability.
I guess your optimiser readings show an early to mid release factor >5, which is why it is recommending slightly softer tip shafts.

just curious as to what flex would be suitable for me in the dynalite gold xp?

My six iron speed is 90 mph, I think in my shaft optimiser fitting last year I was 4s on everything, Im looking for a high ballflight, but want to get the flex right. mizuno fitting said standard dynamic gold S300 would be perfect flex wise, does this equate to a standard dynalite xp S300, or would I need to hard step them slightly?

Thoughts?

Taylor Made had Dynamic Gold XP and Mizuno had Dynalite Gold XP.  Both were exclusive for a while but I think True Temper has expanding their offering recently.  I think they are still OEM only though.

The DG XP is lighter than a regular DG shaft.  Given they are lighter, it makes sense that they could be more flexible but not by a whole lot.

If by OEM, you mean only available from Mizuno or TM, that is not the case.  I reshafted from the Ping Z-Z65 to the Dynalite Gold XP S300's this year.  I've found them nice to hit and they get the ball up rather easily.  If I go with the Ping i20's next year, I may shaft them with the DL too.

Are you directing this to me?

According to True Temper, Dynalite Gold XP was exclusive to Mizuno, and Dynamic Gold XP was exclusive to Taylor Made until this year.  They only recently opened up these offerings to other OEM's and (maybe) the general public.

I play the Dynamic Gold XP in my Nikes and like them quite a bit.  For me they play almost identically to DG S300's that I've played in other sets, maybe a slightly higher ball flight, but I appreciate the 10-15g in weight reduction.  I have not hit Dynalite Golds to be able to compare.

True Temper site is still showing the Dynamic Gold XP as exclusive OEM.  Both Taylormade and Nike have managed to get them; Mizuno no.

DynaLITE Gold XP, on the other hand, is no longer exclusive to Mizuno.

I thought the two shaft options available to the club fitters is the "Dynamic Gold" or "Dynalite XP" but I read that here and other threads "Gold" and "XP" get thrown around and used for describing both shafts.  I've been on the fence, too, about deciding between the two shafts.  The Dynalite XP feels slightly better to me, but the Dynamic Gold gives the best weight (and SW) with satisfactory ball flight.

Sorry for slow reply - I ordered and installed Dynalite Gold XP S300's ion May of 2012 right from the TrueTemper catalog/site (GolfGalaxy did the install).  They are in Ping i15's right now, and were on the TT web site at the time too.

Weird.
