I have a general query concerning swing weight for a club repair/build.
I purchased a used set of 712 AP2 irons (kbs Tour stiff) at a good price to experiment with v 712 AP1 (dynalite xp gold reg). I really like the irons and strike them as well as the AP1 with only a few weeks of winter practice.
Unfortunately I’ve broken the 7i shaft inside the ferrule, upon stripping the grip (shaft labels not on any iron) a kbs tour stiff #5 is revealed. Having taken club to my pro to enquire about repair it’s also revealed to be almost +1”.
I’m able to source a set of std length pulled kbs tour stiff shafts with GP Tour velvet corded locally which pro will fit.
What attention would need to be made re: swing weight? Can I tell pro to build SW like for like with current AP2 or does it need tweaked given the rebuild will be standard length and no softstepping? Is there a standard sw per club they should be built to with kbs tour or am I worrying about this too much?
Thanks in advance, sorry for a long winded message.
