  1. Good point - I actually tested both lightweight steel (Nippon Zelos 7,8) and graphite (Recoil ESX 460, Recoil 780 SmacWrap and Tour AD 75) to see if there was a major difference. Pain or lack thereof was the same across steel and graphite at similar weights. What I did find though was performance was actually better in the lightweight graphite than the steel and I suspect that is down to the shaft stiffness and profile. It seems (from a feel perspective and results) that the lightweight graphite is more stable than the lightweight steel. I think that this would absolutely back up
  2. Thought I would provide a quick update on progress - I tried a bunch of combinations starting with heavyish total weight + light SW (KBS Tour stiff at C7) through to ultralight total weight + normal SW (Recoil ES 460 stiff at D1) to see what the outcomes would be in terms of performance, feel and pain management. The findings were actually a little surprising (or maybe not so much): - Heavy TW + light SW = loss of distance, loss of consistency and no change in pain situation - mid TW + light SW or normal SW = normal distance, normal consistency but no change in pain situation
  3. When you order "special order" taper tip (0.355) shafts from UST - specifically the lighter weight Recoil models. I assume they just take the normal 0.370 shafts and sand them to 0.355? Looking for input. A
  4. Stuart_G spot on! Pain is worst at the top of the swing and well after impact. Which is why started me thinking it was weight related. The physics of the swing and how a heavy weight (the clubhead) swings around essentially a fixed point (hands/arms/shoulders) leads me to believe that is swingweight that is the biggest culprit because of the leverage the extra headweight puts on the forearms wrist and shoulders.... Swingweight though as we all know is a combination of head and shaft weights and balance points hence the risk and error to find something that works it isn’t the fin
  5. Guys thanks for the fantastic responses, insights and support. The pain is definitely associated to arthritis that is made worse by the diabetes. I will try your various suggestions and let you know what works!
  6. Going in to my third winter since being diagnosed with diabetes and the consequences in joint pain etc that have come with the disease leaves me still trying to solve the conundrum of finding an iron set up that allows me to play somewhat pain free, supports the loss of strength as well as still lets me be consistent. I am a plus index golfer that used to hit the ball a long way using heavy shafts in everything. Given my swing mechanics I was one of those that did not benefit from lighter shafts but with everything my body has endured over the last few years I have faced the p
  7. Last of my Callaway sell off: Excellent condition Mavrik Pro 4-AW with TGI 90S shafts (stock L/L/L) - SOLD Excellent condition JAWS MD5 Platinum Chrome 52/10S and 58/12W with TGI 100S (8 iron shaft soft stepped at standard L/L/L) - SOLD IM me with any reasonable offers. Final sales price includes shipping to lower 48 US states and I only accept PayPal.
  8. The bad news is that the Mavrik range does not work for me (across the board), the good news is that somebody is going to get an awesome deal on these clubs/heads: Mavrik Sub Zero (SZ) 9*head in mint condition Mavrik Sub Zero (SZ) 15* 3 wood head in mint condition - Mavrik Sub Zero (SZ) 18* 5 wood with Rogue 130 MSI 70S in mint condition - Mavrik Super Hybrid 20* with stock CK Pro Orange 80S in mint condition - Mavrik Super Hybrid 23* with stock CK Pro Orange 80S in mint condition - Mavrik Pro Hybrid 20* head only in mint condition - All he
  9. Interesting I just pulled the shaft from my Mavrik SZ 3 wood and it also measures .350” and I am 100% it is a legit club. Interesting to see this.....
  10. Anybody know the hosel diameter for the Mavrik SZ fairway wood. I bought a 4W head and it seems it has a 0.350” hosel......trying to figure-it if the head is fake or real. Update - I went out and bought an SZ 3W and pulled the shaft. It also measure 0.350” and don’t have a shim so guessing Callaway are using a similar “universal hosel .335/.350” like they do with their irons to allow different shaft as customs.
  11. Gently used set of PXG irons (Gen2 0311X 4i, Gen3 0311T 5-GW) that are in great condition. Shafted with Matrix Program F15 95 stiff shafts and Lamkin Limited Edition Red/White/Blue crossline grips. Standard L/L/L SOLD All reasonable offers will be considered by low-balls offer will be ignored.
  12. Looking for thoughts or opinions from those who have hit both - they seem to target the same type of player and I am intrigued as to the real world distance/ball speed comparisons between these two.
