jpbova thanks for the response. did you do the stiff or the stiff+ in the $ Tapers.

 

Stiff. Swing my driver about 110-112. 7 iron is 88-90. Stiff was plenty. I was looking for a shaft to tighten my dispersion, reduce spin and height, and help my tempo

I tried these at a fitting with Club Champion, fitter recommended the C-Tapper lite over the $-tapper do to the lower spin on the $-tappers. I went with my gut and put a set into my Apex forged and lo

I had modus 105s in my i210s. I was fit for PX 6s and $ tapers. The PX feel more board like and the feel isn’t quite as good. I went for the $ tapers based on that. They have knocked my spin and fligh

I have been playing $Taper since fall of 2017 and before that I played Steelfibers, CTaper, X100 & Super Peening Blue.  The $ Tapers are fine, no complaints.  I have them in some 0311T's and my biggest complaint is that I find them hard to flight down in shorter clubs.  They feel nice and create a strong flight in the mid and long irons, but in short irons it is a battle compared to those mentioned above.

Interested in these shafts as well. I tend to get steep and have high launch high spin and need something to help me lower my flight. My 7i swing speed is same, 89-91. Currently playing modus 120s. Like the weight, but getting really high launch.

I have similar swing and flight characteristics to what you describe and played KBS Tour 130X in my previous irons. I moved into the $ Taper 130X and my ball flight has CERTAINLY come down. My flight is far more piercing, while the shaft itself I feel has a touch less feel than the Tours, but is still great in that department. I don't feel tempted to overswing at all. Of course, shafts are totally subjective to the swing but based off your description, we sound like we have similar characteristics.

I've been playing my $-tapers (stiff) for the past 10 months and they've been great.  My 6i SS is around 94mph but my transition is really smooth (guess this is the result of a really big arc due to being 6'9").  The shaft lowered my spin but kept a nice medium trajectory for me which gives me the confidence to point and shoot at greens knowing the ball will probably end up about 4-8 feet from where it landed (depending on the iron).
