what is the difference in shafts for wedges?

Dennis D

I am looking to purchase another 56-08 Vokey wedge.  There are different choices in shafts, R200, R300, S200, S300 etc. 

I hit my present Vokey 75 yds. and use steel regular flex shafts in my irons.  Does it really matter in the sand wedge what the flex of

the shaft is?

    Dennis, 

    A lot of what you decide to put in your wedges can be determined by feel.  Since you aren't taking as many full shots with your wedge, staying with a stock S200 over the regular flex in your irons won't have as much of an impact as if you went up a full flex in your irons.  I would recommend consulting a Club Fitter as well as trying out the current stock S200 shaft.  Hit a variety of shots with the stock shaft and let that help with your decision.

    After just spending a half of day with Bob Vokey, I would agree with Cameron...I was fit into an S Flex steel shaft for the reasons Cameron pointed out...every other club in my bag is an X Flex (well, maybe not my putter! LOL).

    I also have a question along those same lines. Right now I am playing the 712 AP2's with the stock S300's in them and loving it. I currently have a 52 and 58 with the "wedge flex". I was thinking about replacing my 52 since I hit a lot of full shots with it but is there really any difference in going from wedge flex to an S300? I was told at my local pro shop that the standard Titleist wedge flex is actually an S400. Is this correct?

    Pat, 

    The stock shaft is a Dynamic Gold S200.  The only difference between the S200 and S300 is a couple grams.

    What S300 shaft do manufacturers put in wedges? I have a 54 and 58 both with S300's but are these 8i shafts, 9, are they tip trimmed 3/8" any insight?

    Looking to get my wedge shafts in order. Currently my 50GW has an S200 which I feel is too weak compared to my X100 in my irons. I hit mostly full shots with the GW. In my 54 I mostly hit partial shots 100 yrds and in but still would like to be able to hit full shots with it. With my 58 I only use around greens and for higher partial swings. What are my options? Would it make sense to play an X100 in my GW like in my irons and leave the S300s in the 54 and 58? or Could it help to stiffen the 54 as I take more full shots with it compared to the 58?
