The two iron is the only club out of the three that has been in my bag/I have hit. It's one of the oldest clubs in there and I want to keep it in when all the new clubs get put together, even though it doesn't make much 'sense'!
The hybrid and utility are sitting in my room unused, both with steel shafts in them and the upgraded shafts yet to go in.
Swapping the shaft in the 2 iron was something I did only last year. The stock steel shaft was pretty good but quite whippy (Nippon 990GH 'Uniflex', 102g).... I was interested in trying the Steelfiber composite shaft in something and thought why not chuck one in the two iron as an experiment. I got REG. flex and the 85 gram 'i80' model as that was the only singular one I could buy in Australia. (At that time I hadn't yet bought shafts or clubs from overseas.... Didn't trust them to be packaged well enough to arrive in one piece). I researched the Steelfibers and popular opinion was that they play half a flex or 1 flex stiffer than they are. Plus the torque quoted is very low for a regular at 2.9. Also they have a stiff tip design. So I justified the purchase of a reg. with that info. I also would have ideally liked the i95 model as I wanted to match the weight of the old steel shaft if possible but I thought 85 plus a 4.5 gram aluminium ferrule and a midsize grip (another experiment) would be close enough. To sum up, I probably should have just left the club stock but in saying that I have hit some ripper shots with it since the shaft change, and it feels great to swing.
In terms of distance, when I hit it as good as I am capable of or at least 97/98%.... I can cover 240-245 metres.
I would think that the new hybrid and UT will be around about the same distance range.
(I would have liked to got the Accra shaft for the hybrid in STIFF but like the Aerotech, it was only avail in XS.) A bit of an experiment again but I have always wanted an Accra shaft and think with the torque number, profile and length of shaft it will be close enough to stiff.
41" for a 3 hybrid is about right I think.... Maybe 40.5-40.75 could be what I go with... Like I say the club hasn't been assembled yet!
As I said in this thread in response to someone else, I have decided to have the new setup like this as I am not shooting the scores I used to and playing a round these days isn't much about trying to shoot a low score, it's about hitting at least a handful or more like a dozen or so shots, really well. Long, long tee shots preferably!
So no four wedges for me... The top five clubs in my bag are there for fun and variety off the tee. They won't be hit at all off the deck (or barely ever). My 5 iron can go 205 or so metres and I am past the days of trying to belt a 3 wood off the fairway 260+ metres to get on a par 5 in two. Much rather lay up with the 5 and flop it close with the short pitch.
