I just started back playing and I bought the new AP1's with the XP 95 in stiff and some Vokey SM4 wedges in wedge flex. I hit my 7 iron about 165 yards. My handicap is about a 9-10, but should probably drop once I get back some consistency and short game. But I can't practice as much because of wrist pain. My driver swing speed is on average about 105.
I had to stop playing several years ago due to some nerve damage in my wrist. I have started back playing and trying to keep it from getting worse. I love the new irons but the vibration is really starting to aggravate my wrist again. I have tried the graphite shafts and that helps my wrist but I just can't control the trajectory. I hit the XP 95 shaft plenty high, but I can lower them down when I need to. But I need to find something to help my aching joints. I'm really looking at the steelfiber shaft. Probably the I95. Since the regular graphite doesn't seem to work would the steelfiber be the best option?
The nearest fitter who deals with steelfiber is at least an hour and half from me. So, I'm trying to get some answers to a few questions:
1) which size shafts go in the AP1's and the Vokey Wedges? .370 or .355? and would the same length as my XP 95's keep them about the same swing weight?
2) with that swing speed which flex would you recommend? From what I have read the stiff would probably be too stiff for me, but not sure if the regular would work. Plus it seems the regular flex has a higher ball flight and I don't really need that.
3) And/or would hardstepping the regular or softstepping the stiff be the best route?
4) what about my wedges? When I played regularly before my injury my short game was a big strength. I like the different options and different choices so I carry 4 Vokey wedge. Should I use the same shaft in them?
