Shafts for my Wife?


leekgolf

Recommended Posts

I want to take my wife to a clubfitter to either buy new irons or get her's reshafted. She currently has Cleveland TA5's with men's R actionlite sensicore TT shafts. I compared the step patterns and these seem to be Dynalite Gold R300s. She really prefers steel shafts in her irons, and her pro told her her clubs are too heavy.

 

She is a little better than a beginner, but I don't think she can play to her 40 hdcp. As far as clubhead speed, I watched her carry her 9 iron consistently about 90 yards, but she seemed to carry her 8 between 100-115. Looks like her 6 also carries 115+.

 

I'd like to take her to a fitter to first get one club reshafted as sort of a demo, then see how she likes it. Any shaft recommendations? Any questions you might suggest I ask a clubfitter to make sure they know what they are doing?

 

Thanks

I would look into something like TT Release but I feel she would benefit from a light flex graphite shaft. Look for something in a slighlty heavier weight but soft in the tip for more feel. Usually I use shafts from SK Fiber for those needing alittle more torque and flex. Have also used Aldila Excelerators with success. Good luck.

If she really likes steel, you'd be hard pressed to find a better set of ultralights than the Nippon NS Pro. But they are dealer only, so the installation usually runs $25 to 30 per club. They play a little soft compared to standard weight steel, and they do make a lighter set than the 95 gram NS pros. They have a "weight flow" set that is progressively lighter in the long irons, but I think they make a set in 85 gram range in L/A/R flexes.

 

The TA-5 is a great club, but the cost of reshafting them is problematic for most people unless you're a DIY hobbyist like many on this and other sites. Sometimes you can find NS Pros as pullout sets on Ebay in the $75 to 100 dollar range. Some clubmakers would install a set of those for $10 to15 per shaft, depending on the amount of work required (trimming, etc).

 

Alternatively, Titleist has been using the NSPro in several of their models for a few years. You might find a good used set on Ebay with the R or better yet, the "Soft R" 950 flex. Does she use standard length clubs or is she 5' 6" or under? In some cases, it's much cheaper to buy the set with the shafts you want and sell the others. Play It Again Sports might be a good option as well, but Ebay rules with respect to selection in most cases.
