    I have installed graphite shafts in dozens of older PING iron sets. Once you get used to the change in weight, they play just fine, with softer impact on hands, wrists, elbows, etc.

    Do you have to worry about spine or puring?

    You're asking the wrong guy. I don't believe for a second that spining or puring matters at my level (9 to 11 hdcp). I use $10 FGS graphite shafts and a good swing yields a good solid shot. Spining and puring is a bunch of hocus pocus to me.

    Depends on the shafts you put in. If you are dealing with newer, quality graphite shafts you should be fine without spining/puring. The older generations of graphite shafts were more were more prone to spine issues.
