new XP 95 iron shaft

Just wondering if the XP 95 shaft in regular flex plays similar to the NS Pro 970 or any other NS Pro model. Also, I'd like to hear some comments about the XP 95. Thanks

Hi Ken, 

Thanks for the question. 

The XP 95 is a lighter weight iron shaft. The key characteristic of the XP 95 is the flighted design. It is designed with a lower kick point in the longer irons to heighten ball flight and a higher kick point in the shorter irons to create a more penetrating flight. The 970 is a little stiffer in the tip, which will create a little lower flight. Weight is similar.

I would suggest seeing a local fitter and trying both shafts out.

Hope this helps.

I know you were looking at regular flex, but I have the stiff XP95 in my AP2's and they are fantastic.  Great feel, higher ball flight, but they carry forever.  I also feel like I dont have to swing as aggressively to hit them far.  Try them out, I am very happy.

Thanks, I hit the NS Pro 970 higher than my graphites in my AP1 irons and was told the XP95 shaft was lower in spin and trajectory than than the Nippons. I'll have to hit them for a comparison. After all, that's the only way to know for sure and be able to sleep at night. Right?

I terms of "flighted" are you refering to the Project X XP95 or the TrueTemper XP95

While you are at it can you refer a Tilteist certified fitter in the Park CIty UT area
