PostSubject: Aerotech Steel fiber Shaft   Mon Oct 15, 2012 11:21 pm

Take a day with BFG, got my club back with a set new steel fiber i80. Direct do to MBGC range for test.

Before start hit ball, the club feel very light (my old set shaft are DG lite R300, is about 115g). Start from 9 iron. It is much easy swing, but ball flight quite like my steel shaft, everything under control. for my 7 iron, more easy give my for almost 5-10 meter extra distance. I have keep my 4 Iron since it is very hard to make the flight, some time same distance 5 iron, but tday I got 170 meter. It is too late. Tomorrow afternoon have game. Will try it.


Thanks Eric for your time!

iron for iron youming's 7 iron used to weight 435g. now its 400g with a step up S flex. Based on his swing speed, swing motion and the weight of his JPX heads (after extraction), the i80 was seemingly the perfect choice.

i am sure you will gain some distance and ease of use after a couple of rounds. and after that you will never play another shaft.

have fun and the big difference is at the end of the game.

cheers and its great having you at the Den.

Always good to have better and lighter shaft.

Enjoy yourself with the new shafts.

Bro, just curious wouldn't this would be a trade-off for bigger dispersion? Thx

Using same shaft i80
Lighter than my nspro 950 and easier to swing and last through 18 holes.
Hitting more GIR now with current set up. Smile

Are you getting better distance with i80 as compared to your nspro 950?

More consistent distance, and tight dispersion.
Similar distance to nspro for short iron. Better distance for mid irons.

i just had a pro visiting from overseas at the Den. he was fitted by TM with PX 6.5. this guy is big, 6 ft 5 with floor to wrist length of 39 inch. thats a difficult fit for most - cos the clubs have to be at least an inch longer and 2 to 3 degrees more upright.

good thing we have 1 inch overlength club with a i95 X and after hitting just 5 shots, he was convinced. we did further test on 80, 90 and 100% shots with the i95 versus his PX 6.5.

all shots came out better with the Steelfiber. dispersion was tighter with the signature baby fade was evident but he gained almost one and half club length immediately. in his own words.."you seem to work less for more"

Dispersion is never a concern fitting with SF. in fact in almost all cases, it is friendlier and bad shots always turn out to be less acute and the margin of error is reduced.

again its not a miracle product while some like it, others may not. i have also seen loads of golfers who strikes better with steel shaft than with the SF. So its something one need to try and work at before getting the desired results.

Hi Eric,

Beside the weight difference between i70 & i80,
Any other different in technical specs?

I agree with DGman. No regrets going back to SF shafts.

now i am a firm believer of these shafts....


cos i always believe that when i am healthy...i can golf

when i can golf, i can be a strong 18HC.....

Very Happy

Was meant to spend only 45 mins to see if I should make the switch to the Aerotech shafts across my irons. Ended up a good 2 1/2 hours there testing/reviewing my own clubs versus the BFGCB003 with the i80/i70 shafts. (I was sidetracked by the beautiful putting range next door I must admit!) Completely blown away by the ease of achieving the same distance with less effort plus if one was to juice it, was surprised at how stable the head was going through the shot.

T-loaned 2 irons (5 & 7) and can't wait for the 'test drive' on the course.

This is very very poisonous stuff!!

Thanks to Eric for sharing his time and views with me!

Anyone want to buy a set of Miuras CB301...? Laughing

let me share another case today.

a golfer who had a old set of Mizunos was in the Den today to check his loft and lie. basically there was not much problem with the lie but i noticed that he was jerky through the swing on impact. lets say this chap is not long but very consistent and confident in his swing.

so i asked him to try out an i80 and a i95. one can see that the swing was immediately smoother. close evaluation of the clubs. his i70 fitted in Australia had a bunch of lead tape on the head. he told me he added them after his switched from NS Pro 950 as he cannot feel anything.

so we weight his irons. his i70 was the same weight as the demo i80 and the i95 was about 10 g heavier than his i70. the analysis is simple, i often talked about total weight being the most important and this is a classic example.

An hour of testing (on his own to play different type of shafts) later...the verdict was out. he prefers the I80 S flex (soft step) with a lighter SW free of lead tape.

the dangerous thing of course is he also take home a BFG CB003 back home to Sydney but i am convinced he will have a better swing and striking with his new set up.

its been a busy day and thank you for your interest and response on this thread.

DGman

PS - we have fitted sets with i80 for the longer irons and i95 for the shorter irons. basically if you are re-shafting your set, the final choice can only be made when we remove all the heads and weight them. in the case of JPX or MX or legacy black series, the heads tend to be light and one may use a i95 and have the same total weight as the i80 on the BFG CB 003.
