DYNAMIC GOLD - FLIGHTED - ASCENDING WGT - 3/8" sets

Someone asked if we could tweak a set DYNAMIC GOLD into a FLIGHTED set, and yes, that can be done, and we can also by weight sorting get a good ASCENDING WGT slope of about 1 gram from shaft to shaft when we combine it with a 3/8" set up where we use the #8 iron (or PW) as starting point for the length slope (keep the standard #8 iron)



To make it, we need to take out the #4 and #8 iron, and add a #1 and #2 iron shaft, then tip trim this taper tip shaft like in this chart.

The CPM numbers in the bottom is only estimates to see how it looks in terms of flex the way we manipulate SW values and combine SS2 with SS1, tip trim and strait in.



The set as a whole should be judged as SS1 on flex vs strait in, and thats typical what we know from PX Flighted, but here we have a altered flex slope that changed from 10.4 to about 11.4 per inch, and with a change of tip length progression between clubs from 4/8 to 11/16 as average. That gives us a standard tip length and flex in the #9 as LOW launch, and up to the #3 iron with 1 inch longer tip than STD and HIGH launch. (or as high as can be and still keep flex within reason)



The concept should work, but i never made a set like this, so consider it a "paper project" where the numbers is done to see if its possible, and it seems like it is.

ive limited tip trim to 6/16 or 3/8" so it should be strait forward to use tapers with hosels for tapers without insert problems.



Both S300 and X100 can be used as starting point

PAY ATTENTION TO STARTING WGT ON EACH SHAFT, THATS NEEDED TO GET A GOOD AVERAGE ON THE WGT SLOPE

    This looks really interesting. Would this same concept work for DGSL, or other lighter weight options? I'd love a flighted set in the 110 to 115 gram range.

    All constant wgt shafts can be used, but we need to do the numbers to see how that might look



    As you can see, ive taken advantage of the weight tolerance in DG do make the numbers look good in the end, but the concept itself (SS2, SS1, tip trim and strait in) can be used on any shaft so yes it can be done, but we have to do the numbers in each case, so if we make a 3/8" set starting from the #4 iron like one reader did the other day, this numbers change and want look identical as they do here.



    For Dynamic Gold S flex, we can take advantage of sub flexes (S200-S300-S400) who will make a ASCENDING slope in the area of 10-11 grams from longest to shortest club where we use the same shafts as X100, so in S-flex we can use S200 -1,2,3 shafts 'SS2 -, S300 5,6,7 shafts SS1 and S300 8,9, and a S400 PW on top.

    This set up dont look as good on the paper, we move in steps or groups if we cant sort them right, not a "equal" progression from shaft to shaft like the example ive posted (but close) and the long irons become a tad softer (even steeper CPM slope) Look at how the slope changes when we go into the S200 shafts, we suddenly jump with 8 CPM into S200 so that might be to much, maybe a small tip adjustment to get them more inline on flex should be done

    Thanks for the info Howard. Really interesting info that is food for thought.
