    Jim, 

    You could consider one of our current graphite options (Graphite Design 65i or Aldila VS Poto T-75) if you were looking to get away from steel.

    Jim, I also just picked up a set of 690 CBs. They're beautiful as you say and a fantastic forging. Outside the graphite options Cameron listed, there are many steel shafts ranging in weight and price. The Dynalite Gold XP and GS 85 or 95 shafts by True Temper are fantastic. Still have great feel and save weight over the Dynamic Gold. There are more expensive options also with other manufacturers. With your handicap and swing speed, playing an R300 flex is probably close to optimal. That's also the softest flex the steel shafts are available in. However, if you would like them to play just a bit softer, they can be soft stepped i.e. installing the 4 iron shaft into the heavier 5 iron head etc. Great irons and a nice project!
