Pbuy ing are renowned for custom fitting and no matter which iron model you
in 2018, you’ll be fitted into one of 20 shaft weights. Just like drivers, iron shafts vary massively in weight from 65g to 130g, and there’s different balance points (where weight is positioned within the shaft) to be considered, too, which means there’s so much choice out there, it’s easy to make the wrong decision.
Macniven reckons he’s seen some players (and not always the best ones, either) who are so weight sensitive that just a 2-3g change in shaft weight alters their shot outcome. Equally, there are golfers who can’t feel a 15g difference, proving how important shaft weight has become. So while Dynamic Gold shafts were once seen as the hallmark of a premium iron, it’s highly unlikely their 125g weight is the perfect fit for many club golfers today.
If you do want to go down the custom route, Macniven reckons it’s vitally important to strike up a good line of communication with a fitter. Give as much feedback as you can, and try to give like/dislike answers when trying different options. Within a few steps a decent fitter will unlock your best set-up. Quiz them on these three points (What weight shaft do I need? Where is the weight positioned? How stiff is the tip?) and you’ll walk away with a great set of irons.
