Iron / iron shafts advice - Considering TT Elevate


Recommended Posts

I play MP20 HMBs that have Project X 5.5 LZ 115g shafts.  

 

7 iron club speed averages 78 mph.  150 carry, 5,000 spin.  Figures are averages from a mevo with range balls outside, but close enough to what i've seen on quad etc.  The optimal strike spin is in the 5,200-5,700 window which is probably what I'd expect for this style of club.  

 

Current shaft was in the top 3 choices on a mizuno optimiser in a previous fit but I just don't like them.  To me they feel a bit lifeless and like i struggle to load them.  Tempo is on the deliberate side of moderate.

 

Considering the elevates 95 as seem to be smoother offering and hair claimed hair of extra spin wouldn't hurt.  

 

I can build up my own clubs so can afford to fail an experiment, welcome any other options.

So this may be anecdotal but I am a higher swing speed/spin player and when I say the elevate was a stock offering in a lot of sets a kind of boo hoo'd it. I work at a big box golf retailer PT and most my shift is spent hitting all sorts of heads and shafts. I will say that i was pleasantly suprised with the 115 Elevate even in S flex. Seems to hold up to my speed and transition and launch and spin was right where I would like it. With my swing changes over the years I have seemed to become a bit more shaft agnostic, being able to play stuff I never could in the past, but i thought the Elevate was a solid offering.
