TM DHY #4, Can I use .370 iron shaft or hybrid shaft only?


Recommended Posts

Title pretty much says it all. From what I can tell, the thing differentiating at .370 iron from a .370 hybrid is that the hybrid shaft would handle the weight of the heavier hybrid head. Is that a true statement?

 

next, if the above statement is true, is the dhy 4 head, light enough to be used in an iron shaft?

 

Looking for practical answers. I know I can stick the head in and it will look like a golf club, but I dont want my x to play like R+.

I've never had an issue putting .355 iron shafts into a couple of the Tour Issue Adams hybrid heads I have.

I have an Adams Super XTD 2 hybrid with 8g of hotmelt in it AND a much heavier sole weight, it it is only 5g heavier than my Taylormade UDI 1-iron. Take away the added weight and it would be at least 12g+ lighter. 

Which shafts in particular are you looking at? Some companies use slightly different designs for their hybrid shafts vs. iron shafts, other times they are just tapered vs. .370 and that is only difference. Sometimes they are even basically the same shaft just marketed differently.

I have a SIM DHY and don't care for the Thump hybrid shaft in it. Would you recommend the Ventus hybrid shaft or go with the Fuji Pro95 graphite shaft which I have in my irons?
