    Helloooooo. Hahaha

    Yeah, Im not a slow swinger, and I play the X100 Elevates happily.

    But, its still about what you need. Here, little more launch, and a tiny bit more spin to work well in a lot of the modern iron designs.

    Ive played them in NL and Miura irons and enjoyed, but in the new Apex combos its been another level.

    I’m looking at the PXG 0211’s and this is the only no upcharge shaft option. Was thinking of giving them a try before paying $25/club for DG X100’s or LZ 6.5’s. I’m sure the 0211’s will be more similar to your apex than the other sets you’ve tried them in. At first I was worried about them being too light, but after seeing the X’s are 122g, they should be fairly close to my LZ’s in weight.

    I was also kicking around possibly hard stepping them. Is there another shaft that you would compare these to for a similar feel? It’s so hard to go to a new shaft blind.
    In my Monoline cart bag:
    Driver: Bio Cell + w/ New 757 Speeder X-Stiff
    3 Wood: Bio Cell + 13.5* w/D+ 72 X-stiff
    5 Wood: Bio Cell + 17.5* w/D+ 72 X-stiff
    Irons: CMB 4-GW w/C-Taper X-stiffs
    Wedges: 588 RTX 54* and 58* w/DG S400 8 iron shafts soft stepped
    Flat Stick: TMAG Spider Mallet

    Imo, they feel a lot like DG X100s, which was a lot of the intent iirc. But, with the VSS dampening the vibrations they become much more enjoyable long term. Plus, theres that slightly increased launch and a touch more spin I mentioned before .
