Hello all,

I'm currently playing the AP1 712 with the DG S300. I recently have greatly improved my swing and have picked up a great deal of clubhead speed. My 7 iron carries 170-175 when I hit it straight. My problem is that whenever I take a full swing I get a big towering draw or hook. Could this shaft be too weak of flex for me?

Thanks in advance!!

The shaft flex could certainly lead to these type of inconsistencies.  You do carry your 7 iron a far distance, which would lead me to believe that you have faster than normal club head speed and may want to consider an X100.  This is something a Club Fitter would be able to analyze in person.  Below are a list of two Advanced Fitting Centers near you, that would be great options to determine to correct flex needed in your irons:

I have same irons and hit same distance with my 7 iron. Unfortunately I have the same problem when I hit a bad shot... High hook. Just purchased this set of AP1's 6 months ago and. Already want to go get a custom set of forged titleist irons.
