Dear Ralph, I have re-shafted my Ping Eye2 iron set and got some questions. Original shaft is Ping K-Shaft steel (106g.) that too Stiff for me. I re-shaft my 5-9-iron with N.S.Pro950GH Weight Flow R-Flex that pull out from Tourstage VIQ2005 (weight 95-99g.) same spec. with modern Ping AWT shaft. Keep same Golf Pride Tour Velvet .58 ribbed grip.
I have measured the length and swingweight of each iron before do anything and got
#5; 37.75”; C6 | #6; 37.25”; C5 | #7; 36.75”; C6 | #8; 36.25”; C5 | #9; 35.75”; C5.5
After I re-shafted it and add 4 grams plug-weight in the hosel, I got
#5; 37.75”; C6.5 | #6; 37.25”; C6 | #7; 36.75”; C7 | #8; 36.00”; C6 | #9; 35.50”; C6
My questions are
- Why original Ping Eye2 irons have swingweight at around C5-C6, is it standard for that old day?
- What should I do to have swingweight that you suggested at D0?
- Are there any affect from shorter length in my 8-iron and 9-iron? Should I extend the shaft to get the same length and please suggest how?
