Would really appreciate any help with this issue...

Can anybody recommend a high kick LOW SPINNING, light weight iron shaft for clubs that are b-weighted to account for overall swing weight?  6-iron swing speed is around 93 mph and driver around 108-112 mph and I typically play x-flex.

I am tall but my arms are average length so wrist to floor is a bit of an issue.  I play to a 4 index but with regular length or even 1-inch over, my address posture is too bent over for my liking... thus the overlength shafts.  At 2-inches my posture begins to really improve.

Currently I am playing Mizuno MP-64's (b-weighted) with Nippon 950's X flex... spin with 7-iron is around 9000.  Driver spin is down in the acceptable 2200-2700 range with standard equipment and I don't believe it's a swing issue.  Fitting help por favor?

LOL...this tread could have been a "Cut & Paste" from a Dynamic Gold SL commercial where True Temper "made up a case" to show who this Dynamic Gold SL shaft is made for.......

The player is asking for help
TT nails the answer in 1 line, end of story :-)

(The OP might be a PR Agent, working for True Temper, because the answer was to easy, and there is hardly any options:-)

6"4 but more importantly, wrist-to-floor measures 41".  I've played standard length, 1/2 over, 1 inch over but in all those setups I'm making some big compensations particularly in PW to 7i in terms of being massively bent over at address.  If you compare my build to somebody like Kuchar or Watney (both tall golfers), you'll see they don't need to bend over nearly as much because their wrist-to-floor measures out closer to normal (as evidenced by where their hands are at address).

Very happy to see the endorsement of a shaft that was built for this specific issue (DG SL x100) - VERY MUCH APPRECIATE THE ADVICE as tinkering around is damn expensive.  I already got suckered into a set of Nippon 950's... great shafts I'm sure but not helping me out in this specific setup.  They'll be for sale soon I suspect :)

Interestingly enough I went on TT's site and through their shaft finder they recommend that PXi's which is a newer shaft from Project X and light.  They serve that up ahead of the DG SL's... anybody had experience there?

I think they're pushing those since they're new and a big upchagre on most clubs $$$

Ha - I think that's the reason I got steered into the Nippon's in the first place.  Unfortunately it's going to be a little tough to play in the wind when my 7-iron is spinning around 9200 rpm and height at a 36 yard average from 93 mph 7i swing speed.

I'm not a shill for TT but would be pleased if something so much easier to obtain and afford is ideal for this issue.  You guys have seen this work in real life or just marketing hype?

I am 6 foot 5 and play the pxi and love them. They work great for over length irons and control spin well.

I have to play my irons at the same length as the op and was wondering how the feel of the sl compare to the standard dg. I love the feel of x100 but the weight gets crazy e3+ sw and carrying is almost impossible for 18
