    I only recall changing iron shafts once. When I was gaming the Srixon Z 545 irons with Recoil 95 F4 shafts, I was curious how I would like a little heavier Recoil shaft so I bought a set of the 110's and put those in the 545 heads. Did not like them as much so chaged back to the 95's after about a month. Did the shaft swaps myself.

    Basically seeing what I think feels best for me. Some have worked better than others... some have felt too loose or soft, others like the PX Rifle 6.5 and c taper x shafts felt too boardy. These irons have had c tapers, c taper lites, KBS Tours, x100's, PX Rifle 6.5s, and PX LZ 6.5's. The LZ and the KBS Tour 130x have felt the best to me. These currently have the LZ shafts in them.

    Ive changed the shafts in my iblades 3 times. Im a big fan of project x but went with the modus 120. Hated them so I put a set of KBS 120 in them. Those were decent but skying my 7-pw. I found my current set on the bay for super cheap and I they are great. Get my 4, 5 and 6 up but keep my 7-pw down a bit. I wanted px LZ but the cost was just too much. At first I was nervous doing the shaft swap but its really not that hard. Graphites are a different story (unless you have a shaft puller)
