Recommended Posts

I see True Temper now has a Dynamic Gold 95 iron shaft, anyone have any experience with this shaft? How does it compare to other light weight steel shafts like the Elevate 95, Dynamic Gold 105, Modus 105? Looking for any feedback.

   VSS means the shaft has a sensicore type insert.

 

DG shafts are more tip stiff than Elevate or Modus so they will be flight lower, assuming you load the shaft adequately.  Tip stiff shafts tend to feel more firm and/or harsh than a soft tip shaft also.

 

Needless to say, a 95 shaft will fell lighter than a 105.

Just a small but important correction
DG 95 is NOT a low launch profile, but high launch, so it dont really belong to the classic DG line up, (130 and 120) but seems to have been given that name for marketing reasons
DG 105 is not a LOW launch profile either but MID launch, so its only 130 and 120 who is LOW launch

Anyone know what the actual profile on these look like? I don't think they are anything like the standard DGs, just share a name.

 

These definitely won out in my fitting today, but don't know if my body could put up with steel shafts. 

Still can’t find anything on the actual profile for the DG95, that being said I took a chance on the TT Elevate MPH 95 shafts this summer in a set of New Level 902PD irons after about 15 years of playing mostly graphite iron shafts and I love them. I did install some sensicore inserts in the shafts so they are similar to the VSS that TT was providing. I switched to graphite due to joint issues but so far the Elevates have not caused me any issues with pain or aches. I just feel that the steel shafts offer me a lot more versatility and shot making options. I’d like to test the DG 95 shafts but I’ve not been able to find anyone near me that offers them as an option.

I've been playing graphite iron shafts as well due to aches and pains. I very much like the 95 gram weight class, but feel that 95 gram steel shafts play way different than 95 gram graphite shafts. I feel like 95 gram graphite irons shafts feel more stout than 95 gram steel shafts.

Nothing specific on the DG 95, but the specs look very similar to the XP95 (or Titleist proprietary label XP90).  I have a set of 2019 T100 with XP90 R300 and found them to be a very smooth shaft.  The glossy says they are high flight, high spin, and deliberate transition, which was exactly what I need.  Similar to @dlow206, I play graphite in everything else (Recoil 780/F4) but the XP90 are as easy to swing multiple days and pain free on these old joints.

I think the XP95 are very similar to the old Hogan Apex shafts or the TT Dynalite Golds and for me I would spin those two shafts too much but for some reason I’m not excessively spinning the TT Elevate 95s. Could be that my swing speed is not what it use to be!! I’ve also had a couple of me buddies go from graphite to the Elevate 95 & 85 with success. My SteelFiber 70s were close in feel to the Elevate 95s.

I agree with the comparison to the Apex shafts and had thought to myself that they resemble the Ping ZZ Lite's.  I don't create a lot of spin with my swing and make a small, shallow divot.  I need to add it with shaft or ball and prefer to do it with the shaft.  I had one set with SF 80's in them and didn't like the feel.  Most of my female professionals, when I was still looping, preferred SF's though. 

 

Different swings for different players and likewise, different shafts fit different players differently.  Haha. 🤣

I haven't given any thought to steel shafts in a long time, so i don't know what shafts to play in my 54 and 58 that will pair well with the DG 95s. Need something lower launching in the 54 and 58. 

I use regular, old-fashioned DG R300 in my 52 and 56.  They pair well with my graphite and with those XP90s.  Never really played more than a 56.

Right now I’m playing a NL 902PD 48* AWedge with the Elevate 95, my 50* is a Ping AWT shaft to control flight (soon to be a new 52*) and my 54* or 56* are stock steel shafts..I seldom use it for full shots.

Played with this shaft for the last 5 months and it felt a little to loose for me.  Spinning, high and pulling left.  

What shaft were you playing prior to the DG 95?

The DG105 or DG115 wedge shaft should be right up your alley, I would imagine.  Elevate Tour is also a good one to look at.

I am on the quest for the clubs I hit the best, feel and looks be darned.

These below have my attention at the moment.

 

SIM - Rogue Silver 130

Speedzone Tour Big - Arcane

Rogue Sub Zero - Thump 

Ping i525 5-UW - Modus 120 Black Edition 

SM8 50/F, 54/D, 58/M - i123

Bettinardi Hive Custom - Spencer Levin Style

alright, did some research, seems like these DG95 are extremely soft based on this info from the TT japanese website. including DG 120 as a comparison. i know CPM is not the end all be all for shaft stiffness measurement, but these seem extra soft unless i am missing something.

I found this recommendations for shafts for a 80-90 mph 6 iron club head speed player.

Saw that one eventually as well. I like that chart, but that site this came from also made the statement that the Nippon 950 GH is the "stiffest" of all the shafts in this chart. It may be from a CPM measurement perspective, but a little misleading from an overall shaft profile stiffness.

Here are some EI profiles for comparison from https://www.golfshaftreviews.info/. This is a good site to get info and it’s only $12 a year.
