Hi bros,

i own 2 forged sets. one is on PX 5.0 and the recent one i bought is MP58 with NSpro950 SR.

Is thinking of swapping the PX shafts into my MP58s.

Can i do that? what are the things i should look out for?

Thanks for your input

Andrew

yes you can do that, things you should look out for is the length of clubs, lie angles, and individual irons swing weight...

I adjusted my lie angle when I got the mp58. Is all irons shafts standard length if stock?

need to check hosel diameter, they come in 2 sizes, 0.335 n 0.35, if both match then can swap, if not, can still be done but will involve lots of work....thus $$$

Iron shafts comes in 0.370 parelle or tapered.....0.335 and 0.350 are for wood shafts.
Depends on wat brand, not all brands are of the same length, but of course there is a standard asian length for irons.....length also defers between iron steel shafts and graphite ....

the ones i saw online is .355 tapered. matching with the Mp58s.

but i think if add the shafting and cost of the shafts total will exceed $650.

Ouch!
