Curious if there is a similar shaft profile for irons like the new tensei Av blue x. Have 55x in driver, 65x in fairway, and 80x in hybrid. It’s definitely butt stiffer than ck and pro which I prefer and just feels and loads perfectly for my swing and flex is perfect without feeling boardy. Curious if there is a similar iron profile to this one could recommend?

    I'm actually working on a giant chart/table that matches steel shaft profiles with graphite counterparts. The AV Blue will be in there, although it is not the most common profile so it won't really have any dead on matches.

    Where can I Find this chart? Why is profile so different? Anything similar? I just really love everything about the shaft.

    I'm still working on it, not complete yet. It's not that the profile is so different, it's that many Graphite shafts have more extreme profiles due to the ability to combine and manipulate different materials vs. just a simple steel tube. Many Graphite shafts have no real steel counterpart as a result.

    Also it should be noted that there is no guarantee that a similar steel shaft profile will work well, although I do think it's already worth trying out.
