The S400 will flex out about the same as a Hard Stepped S300. It is a little heavier in weight, but usually is a nice option for a player looking for something tighter than the S300. Soft stepping a X100 will still be a little stiffer than the S400.
Based on all the information you have given, I would recommend hard stepping the S300.
There is a flex in between, s400, which will be the same as a hardstep s300 but still softer than a softstep x100. i would go with softstep x100 or as stiff as you can handle as dispersion is much more important than distance, but that is just me. hope this helps a little
X100 has a 6.8FCM
S300 has a 5.8FCM
soft-stepping the X100 will bring it to a 6.5FCM
hard-stepping the S300 will bring it to a 6.1FCM
An s400 is at 6.1FCM so if your on the line I'd go with the S400. I'd even go with the Tour Issue S400 to make sure that everything is right, because the tolerances are a lot tighter.
Soft stepped x-1s everyday and twice on sundays.
Soft stepping the x-1s wont have a negative effect on the dispersion compared to a straight in x-100, but will give you a little more "play" at the bottom. Also, they will perform better in the wind then S-300s.
When I got fit with my old irons with hardstepped s-300s, my spin was up around 7000. Put soft stepped x-100 in and spin was down around 6000-6200 rpm.
I would highly consider the TI S400. I was fit on the miz shaft optimizer with the same swing speed to a SSX100 as well or HSS300, and I chose the TI's in my 714 AP2's and couldn't be happier. No longer did I have any miss to the left, it was straight or even a slight fade and my dispersion improved dramatically. If you have the scratch definitely go TI S400 or SSX100...
I was in the same situation with my last two sets of clubs and I ordered X100 SSx1.
