    loving this. wish we could have discussed this at the round table but I understand it was embargoed. I will say I am happy to see a lighter option again for slower SS players.

    man this sounds right up my alley. Higher launch is the single reason I have the Project X shafts in them but softer is better

    121 grams is a lighter option? There are plenty of options out there in the 90-110 gram range. I guess I just don't see anything >120 grams as a lighter option. I don't think they're going after the slower swingers with this one, but I could be wrong. Did they specifically tell you that when you were out at PX?

    I don't need the higher launch, but I know some people that could definitely benefit from a better descent angle into greens. Sounds awesome for a buddy of mine that is a competitive amateur but has a low ball flight throughout the bag.

    Well if were comparing x flex That's lighter than their current line up gold standard Dynamic Gold profile. but you are correct, i probably should verify specs first before saying that.

    I think this could be really interesting for me in the right head combination and right around 120ish G is my happy zone it seems. I've always been told I hit the ball high for irons but if I can hit it high and still keep the ball from getting destroyed in the wind, I'm interested!

    I like the sound of shot stopping control. 121 doesn't sound like what I have considered a light option but that is definitely a weight I am comfortable with.

    That makes more sense to compare it to the Dynamic Gold line and original Project X (125 grams in 6.5 flex).
