Spotted: True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 wedge shafts

Published

on

We spotted new True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 wedge shafts at the 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic. The shafts, which are likely to measure around 115 grams based on the nomenclature, are designed as lightweight options for golfers who are already playing lightweight irons shafts, according to a True Temper representative.

As iron shafts are trending lighter in today’s game — even on the professional ranks — it’s only right that shaft companies offer lighter-weight wedge shafts to help bridge the gap in weight between irons and wedges. True Temper itself recently released Dynamic Gold 120 shafts for those who want a lighter feel, but still want the classic True Temper performance.

According to True Temper, the Dynamic Gold 115 shafts will be for those who have iron shafts measuring under 110 grams.

“The DG 115 wedges are for players using lighter weight iron shafts (<110gr) that want DG performance but don’t want to have the large shaft weight gap to standard DG,” said a True Temper representative in our forums.

    I guess I am missing something with this article and your comment about heavier graphite shafts. Where in the article does it mention these are made from graphite? They look to be stepped steel to me.

    Seems like True Temper playing catch up and copying some of what Nippon has to offer. This looks really close to the Nippon 115 wedge shaft. Also funny how True Temper released the Dynamic Gold 120, much like the Modus Tour 120 which has been available for a couple years, bet the profile is pretty similar as well. Innovation at its best by the top steel shaft company in the country.

    Well you keep asking questions, and that’s good, that you show how very little you really know.
    Graphite shafts a scam? What an eejit comment. Lets see you fit my 75 year old mother with the old DG S300 steel shafts in her driver and compare that to the new 35 gram graphite shaft and see which one she can swing the best. Got it? See, there is no scam. You’re just clueless. Very disrespectful and childish, you are.

      By only looking at Tour players and your better players you are only looking at a VERY small sample size of the entire golf market. For a lot of aging golfers (which are keeping the golf industry alive) graphite is a necessity., not only for its lightweight properties which allow them to achieve more distance with their slower swing speeds but also for the vibration reduction properties which helps relieve pain in their hands on every shot they hit.

      Even looking at better golfers, all the way up to tour players, Sneds and Kuch both play graphite iron shafts in a middleweight class with the Aerotech SteelFiber 95cw shafts. Although a compromise between full graphite and full steel shafts, the Aerotech provides different launch characteristics that fit these players swings the best.

What Adam Scott said about his new 681.AS irons

Published

on

Adam Scott has used the same irons — Titleist Forged 680 — for the better part of 10 years.

“When you’re old and stubborn, you like what you like,” the 41-year-old told PGATOUR.COM.

Indeed, as he has transitioned into Titleist’s latest woods and wedges, the 14-time PGA TOUR winner has remained steadfast in playing his 2003 680 irons with KBS Tour 130 X shafts.

It was interesting, then, to see Scott with a different — but very similar — set of irons in the bag ahead of THE CJ CUP @ SUMMIT.

Scott’s new 681.AS Forged 8-iron

At a glance, the visually stunning irons look identically shaped to the 680s we’re used to seeing in Scott’s bag — similar large muscle pad on the rear of the club, similar hosel transition, similar generous amount of offset, similar topline. However, the irons looked substantially less worn and were stamped with 681.AS on the hosel.

What’s going on here?

Titleist declined to comment, but PGATOUR.COM caught up with Scott, who shared some details. As it turns out the new irons are the same…sort of.

Before digging into the 681.AS, we asked Scott why he doesn’t simply continue playing 680 irons, and when a set wears out, replace them with another. The answer, he said, was simple. Titleist “just ran out of original sets,” which the company stopped producing in 2005.

What to do? Scour eBay and used club stores? Frequent garage sales?

Scott indicated Titleist engineers took a different tack: They made CAD (computer-aided design) copies of his beloved 680s and CNC-machined what he called, “basically the same clubs.”

“Thanks to technology,” he said, “they’re as exact a replica as you can get, but with the way they’ve been made, I could argue it’s a more solid head with a more solid strike.

“I’ve been stuck on the 680s for a long time now,” he added. “…We’ve tried some stuff here and there. We tried bending the 620 MBs earlier this year, which I actually used at the Masters. I’ve been looking for 12 months for that new fresh set with good feel in the hands and good vibes, and we just couldn’t get there, so they took this project on.”

He continued: “It’s very nice for me that Titleist was able to do that. I know what I know. I’ve played it so long, I’m at a point where I think it’s detrimental to go searching and trying to change. I know how I play, and I know what I need to play well.”
