    Wake up this morning and I am beyond excited to get this started. Have some ideas floating around in my skull. First thing is tomorrow. I know what happens to my body when I hit a ton of balls with some irons that are steel shafted. My fingers and wrists will flare up and half the time I will be unable to fully make a fist.

    Well I plan on taking a picture of my hand prior to going and then after the range. I'm hoping the pictures can pick up the swelling. Sometimes it can't. Then when I get the irons with recoils in I will do the same. There will be a difference based on what I have seen in the past.

    Very cool. I've always considered graphite even more so now with my left wrist injury. Anyone know what the price of these are? I'm scared to even find out since I know how expensive the IS990 Prototypes are haha.

    Depending on the model these can run pretty high. Prices below are what I have been quoted

    600 series--$40
    800 series--$60-80
    Prototypes--$110-$125

    Chunky, what are your thoughts on the weight? Have you hit graphite shafts in that weight range in the past? Any preconcieved notions going through your head?

    I have some UST Mamiya grips on my clubs and like them quite a bit. I think it's cool that they sent you the grips as well, that should assist in the costs for you guys.

    I'm very optimistic about the weight. In driver shafts, I have had very good success with using the 70 gram version over the 60 gram version. It seems to work better for my tempo IMO

    In iron shafts, I have used a wide range of weights. The PX graphite was in the 90 gram range. The PXi's with cushin insert are right around 105 I think. The KBS tours are 120ish I think, possibly lighter. I seem to hit the KBS better. Is it the weight? I can't say for sure but I do hit those better

    Just for a graphite example, I really enjoy the Matrix Programs. They are about as heavy as it gets and I believe the same weight range as the Recoils. Heavier weight seems to jive with my swing.

    My preconceived notion is that I am very excited. I think these are going to work very well for me. The obvious and first benefits are going to be for my body. I've said it a billion times, but I am falling apart. Bad hands, back, knee, brain.... Graphite helps tremendously in taking the vibrations away which means less wear and tear on the body. That means more range time for me. That means happier Ken.

    My only concern is the ball flight. These are labeled as mid/low. I tend to like a high flight. The KBS tours are labeled mid though and I hit them sky high so I think it really does come down to that persons swing and how the shaft reacts to it. I picked irons that are known to have a high flight to them so I'm hoping that everything will meld into a perfect marriage of mid/high.

    That's what I was thinking. Not only will some have to pay to have them assembled, but they're also going to have ot pay for grips. Kudos to UST for eating that cost too!

    Excellent. Very interested in what all of you end up seeing, especially when it comes to ball flight.
