    Even though I already play graphite shafts, this is one that I would really love to attend. Always interested is learning more about them and have the expert determine if I am playing the correct graphite shafts for my game.

    This will be awesome. Recoils are so good and absolutely destroy so many misconceptions about graphite shafts.

    This one sounds great! I too have graphite shafts in my current irons, but I didn't do a formal fitting, and know I could learn a lot from an experience like this. I do know I like the Recoils that I put in my wedges better than the stock graphite shafts in my irons.

    I've always been skeptical of graphite in my irons, but I'm definitely curious.

    Looking forward to seeing what location is chosen for this one. Should be a good time regardless!

    I'm definitely in the group who thinks they would never consider a graphite shaft. Should be an interesting follow and sounds like blast as well.
