Just picked up a 2 iron today as I've always wanted to try one out being a high ball hitter.  I was hoping to get some shaft recommendations (both graphite and steel) for this club as it has a S400 in it right now which does not fit me at all.  For reference I currently play KBS C Taper x stiff tipped an inch in my irons and a Aldila RIP 105 x stiff tipped an inch in my hybrid.  I am looking for this to be a substitute to my hybrid and be a super low launching club for those windy days.

If you need any more info from me feel free to ask and thanks in advance for the help.

I have 2 different 2 irons I use, a X Utility Prototype 18° & a Callaway Diablo Forged 2 iron I swap between. In my 2 driving/utility iron 18° I use a Aldila VooDoo XVS9 which helps me keep the ball down nicely while keeping the setup a little bit lighter since I use it off the tee a lot instead of a 5 wood, gives me a little better feel with a oversized iron head. In my Diablo Forged 2 iron which it more traditional I ended up going with a Steelfiber 115, I wanted something as close to steel I could get with a little lighter weight. After trying a few KBS shafts but not liking the slightly higher flight I tried the Steelfiber which gave me exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a soft feel in the traditional 2 iron that would also keep the ball down as well as launch it as I need & it was the one. I thought about playing the same hybrid shaft that's in my X Utility Prototype but the feel just wasn't the same. An iron shaft is the way to go & I just wanted something that was as smooth feeling as my 7iron, plus a little lighter since I'd also be hitting it off the tee, hit the different shots I needed & the Steelfiber was the best compared to the steel shafts I tried.

The aldila NV MLTI pro 105 graphite is a very good low launch graphite option.  Lower (and less expensive) than most of the hybrid graphite shafts but obviously not as heavy as steel.

I would consider putting a KBS C-Taper X in it to match your irons.. its low launch and low spin and since you already know you like the shaft it should work out pretty well. If your looking for graphite I would suggest the Speeder 904 HB x-flex.. again low spin and low launch with a pretty solid feel.
