    As of a few week's time, everything in my bag, bar my putter, will be graphite shafted. I'm trying a spread of weights of the new Rapid Taper shafts from Xcaliber in the irons as follows:
    4-6 - 75g
    7-8 - 85g
    9-PW 95g

    This increasing of weight has been tried and tested and seems to make sense. I've tried both the 75g and 95g shaft in some demo clubs and they feel great. The shafts are quite stout, so I'm moving from Stiff to Regular. And I'm going to throw in some Spin wedge shafts as follows:

    GW 85g
    SW and LW 100g

    We are in full lockdown here for the next 4 weeks, so it will give me something to do and hopefully look forward to. Reports to follow for sure.

    Keep us informed on how those shafts work. I just got done changing all my grips. Using air took me about 15 minutes top. Taking the old off was easy as they were blown on.

    Yep! I'm hoping to find a decent set of graphite shafted irons this winter. I've been getting along fine with the steel, but 75 year old joints are beginning to talk back.
