  1. not to be vulgar, but you've GOT to be sh***ing me! how is this possible?
  2. that "whup-whup-whup" sound you hear is the black helicopters circling overhead...
  3. what? why would you think that? I asked what effect soft-stepping and 1/2" over standard length would do for my distance and ball flight. this is simply a technical question. I don't need new heads. I used to play a set of forged Hogan Edges w/ DG S300's @ 1/2" long and was hitting 6 iron 175-180. I switched to these Callys with PX 6.0 Flighted @ standard length and now I'm hitting 6 iron to about 170 depending. I've lost distance and some height. I'm just asking if the small change I'm considering will help with that. and don't believe all you read or hear about heads being all that dif
  4. there's a couple of sets of PX 7.0 on Ebay right now. this Satin finish set for a "buy it now" price of $179 http://cgi.ebay.com/Project-X-Satin-Finish...1QQcmdZViewItem hope this helps...
  5. Bobcat, normally, lengthening a shaft will make it softer. but you have brought up a good point about the peculiarities of the PX Flighted shaft. these are PX Flighted so I have no idea how that differs from normal PX. according to the Royal Precision website, "the all-new Project X Flighted features an exaggerated change in kick point within each shaft throughout the set to optimize ball flight through the bag. Long irons provide a lower kick point for higher ball flight, easier launch and greater distance, while the short irons have a higher kick point for a lower trajectory, grea
  6. yep. I already need a more upright lie as determined by static board testing. all my other clubs have been 1/2" over so this is part of the reason I'm curious about this fix. thanks for the reply!
  7. hmmm, hadn't thought of that. ... off to Ebay to check auctions!
  8. these are nearly new so I don't think that would work. but I'll look into it. thanks for the suggestion...
  9. thanks andre. that's what I have come to understand through some research. but I don't want to swap out these shafts to a softer PX because of the cost. I really like the feel, weight, and dispersion of the PX Flighted shaft so I don't want to chuck them for something completely different if I can just make a simple, inexpensive change that will help. If it doesn't, I can always pull them and start over later. thanks for the reply...

  11. PX Flighted are $30 ea. that's $250 that I don't want to spend. Callaway quoted me $300 to switch out the 6.0 for 5.5's. + shipping. I don't think so... I can change the shafts myself. I have built clubs for years but I'm asking what would be the effect of this change if I do it?
  12. maybe. but I'm going through a bit of a rough patch with my swing now. WHen I get it back, I'd still like to hit it like I previously hit my DGS300 shafts but now I lost about 5-7yds per club in my short irons and altitude in my long irons with these PX 6/0 Flighted. just wondering if soft-stepping and leaving 1/2" long would help me get back some of that distance and height in my shot?
  13. don't use sandpaper. ScotchBrite makes a pad for metal polishing that comes in different grades. I use the red/maroon to refinish corroded parts from my motorcycle. green is a little softer and blue is the softest of the ones I use - barely useful for what I do except taking rust spots off chrome. get it auto parts stores but be careful. once you start, you won't want to quit. its addictive...
  14. tubing cutter. same ones plumbers use.
