Anyone know if the Steelfiber wedge shafts listed on their website are a new design or are they the same as they were before, ie PW shafts? I emailed a few days ago but haven't heard back yet.



Wanting just a bit firmer feel in the 125 stiffs in my wedges, and not sure how to accomplish that. I've got the PW shafts in mine currently.

    That's what I'm trying to figure out. Wondering if they are lower launch, stiffer etc, or if they are the same.

    Now I’m interested too. Just thought it was the natural progression of the iron set.

    I asked AT this very same question and they did respond to me. The shafts listed in the "wedge" section of their website are the same wedge shafts from the set, but they are different from the 9 iron shafts. I know some companies' 9i and wedge shaft from the set are the same. They recommend the same wedge shaft in the PW and all of your wedges.



    Now a note of interest, they do make a i125cw in an R flex wedge shaft, but they don't make a full set. So if you want a little heavier, but softer wedge shaft, they do offer this. Think X100/S400 in Dynamic Gold. So maybe i110cw S in the set, and i125cs R in the wedges. Just a thought.

    Firmer feel than 125 'S' in your wedges....not sure how you'll do that in graphite with the same bend profile, unless you drop down in weight to the 110 'X'...and use some 8i shafts.



    Otherwise, I'd go to steel shafts with Prosoft inserts......probably Dynamic Gold X100 8i shafts, to get that firmer feel you're looking for, while also maintaining high weight.



    Another option in steel for a close bend profile match, would be the 'standard' Project X 5.5....yes 5.5 (it will be firm enough), which is a 115g design

    Why not just try a 125 X-stiff to try and achieve a firmer feel? But I agree with Cwebb, that you might have to go steel. X100 with prosoft. But isn't the 8i shaft trick to try and get more spin, so a softer feel?

    Been thinking about 125X. Might order one to try out. Really dont want to move back to steel.

    For someone who plays 'S' flex, it won't be a "softer" feel. A DG 8i shaft installed in a wedge, just results in soft-stepped twice

    I didn't realize the i125 was available in 'X'. Maybe try an 8i shaft in one of those? The 'X' straight in would probably feel too firm as compared to your irons in 'S'

    they dont differ and Aerotech doesnt make a "wedge" shaft its simply the PW from the different sets (i.e i95 i110 i125). I play the i110 X in my irons and the 125X in my wedges and while Its ok in my 59 with plenty of feel in partial shors, I am struggling with them in my 54. I spin the ball a fair bit to begin with, which doesnt help how high I hit it as it spins up into the air, but I just hit it so **** high. I want something more peircing a flat. and the ability to flight the ball more.



    If you are a person looking for hieght with your wedges and spin plus NO vibration these are awesome!

    I think your only option would be to tip the shafts 3/8 to 1/2" if the shafts allow it..
