Just ordered a ts1 3 iron with a fujikara pro 95 shaft to try out as a driving iron. Anyone give these a try yet?

    Someone in the TS2 thread had taken the lowest lofted TS2 they could find and set it up as a driving iron. They seemed really happy with it.

    Haven't heard of anyone doing the same with a TS1 head though.

    I have the HDI and struggled with it everywhere except the tee but it's probably from the heavy S300 shaft.

    I have a dbm 3 iron that is the same for me. I had a parallel tip s300 installed and it's a tee only club for me. From what I've read the fujikara pro is similar to the dg bend profile. Hoping it's a good fit. I currently play amt s300 in my ap2s.

    Think any head is better with a Fujikura Pro iron shaft. At my age, I’m more of a 75g guy. But, I love those shafts - just so stable and consistent.

    good to know. I'm definitely curious how it's going to play. I'm not beyond switching to graphite in all my irons even at my age. As I tend to get some elbow pain during the season when I'm practicing alot.

    Yep, that was me. TS-2 #4 hand picked low loft and bent to 18*. I wouldn’t suggest dending any further otherwise you’ll end up wit negative bounce - my setup is 1-2* bounce already.



    Still very happy.



    Makes for great low runners out from under the trees when I inevitibly find myself stuck there as well.
