Project X LZ

Jimmy M

I just ordered the 718 CB in project X LZ 6.5 and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions in shafts for when I order my 46, 50, 56, and 60 degree wedges. Someone told me to put the Dynamic gold AMT to compliment those shafts in the irons. If anyone has any guidance I'd appreciate it.

    Titelst fitters tend to recommend the same shaft in any wedge you generally use for full shots. Off the rack wedges won't have your iron shaft on the floor - but you can order them that way.

    Hi Jimmy
    Great choice of club - the CB - in my view no better club.
    Shafts - now there is the mine field.
    The Project X LZ - also good choice - and quite stiff - you must have had them tested.
    Personally i like the Project X 5.5 - the step-less design and stronger tip and grip - just works for me personally.

    But wedges - again a slightly different tool - more a sweeping / feel action - Vokey use a standard Wedge shaft which go through extreme testing to compliment the head to be perfect - that being the case why change - but if you must - be sure you test with a pro first.

    So many different variables - the manufacturer / the materials / the process in manufacturing......

    That's a great questions. The most important thing is to get fitted from an authorized Titleist fitter.

    But if you look at a lot of set make ups for full wedges, they usually have the same shaft as the rest of the irons. So for the 46*, probably get it with the Project X LZ 6.5 to match your set. For the rest of your wedges (50, 56, & 60), a lot of people like to get the same shaft to keep the same feeling, but a softer flex, so maybe a 6.0.

    Example, Rory plays 7.0 in his irons, but his wedges he plays 6.5.

    Since wedges are more of a feel shot and finesse shot, a softer flex might help with those.

    But again, getting properly fit and having the best combo is most important.

    Let us know what you get and how you like them.

    I used to play PX 6.0s in my irons. A Titleist fitter recommended stepping down my wedge shafts, 50 deg PX 6.0 and 54, 58 to the PX 5.5. A little softer feel especially around the green.

    I just got my 718 AP2's with px 6.0 in them. I also just got my wedges 50*, 54* bent to 55* and 58* bent to 59* to help with gapping. I use my 50* and 55* for full shots so I had the px 6.0 put in them to match the set. My 59* is more for around the green finesse shots so I had a px5.5 put in that since it will be a bit softer. I would just go to a fitter and have them work with you and find out whats best for your game.
