Recommended Irons shafts for high swing speed. 110mph 9 iron, 117mph 5 iron

I'm not really big into equipment but I plan to start taking golf seriously and I need some suggestions of iron shafts that I might want to try out. I currently have C Taper X-stiff and I hate them because the tips bend and snap. Also even at my swing speed, they don't feel pleasant. Even as an aggressive swinger, I don't like them.

 

My swing speed is as follows:

9 iron is in the 108-110 range

8 iron is in the 112 range but I can get up to 115mph if I step on it( not for course play)

5 iron is in the 116-117 range

3 irons is 122mph range

My driver I keep in the mid 130s just for course play and control.

 

Outside of the choice of a hard stepped X7, what options would I choose? Also are there any graphite options? I heard that Paderson also makes an iron shaft that's pretty stiff.

If you want other graphite options, you'll probably have to wait for LA golf rebar or Ventus black velocore to be released for retail.

Not sure you need anything super ultra stiff compared to c-taper x, your spin numbers seem reasonable here

Pretty much exactly what I was going to say. 

I also chuckled at "keep it in the mid 130's for control" for the driver. 😂

I dont know how you swing your clubs, but the only shaft for irons i know could work is True Temper Tour Prototype Monaco in TX flex who is 135 grams uncut. They are at bargain prices on the bay now.

Kyle Berkshire and Drew Cooper are significantly faster than OP and they use X7 and LS 7.0 respectively, just hardstepped. No need to use 200 bucks per shaft.

its only 200 for a full SET 3-PW, you can hardly find a set 3-PW for that price since its lower than standard Dynamic Gold, and way below X7 who is a tad softer than Tour Prototype TX (short end - Monaco has a progressive flex slope)
