I think there's some truth in the statement that Asian spec shafts are more flexi than US spec shafts. So, they are possibly more whippy.

yes, this is true.. Asian spec plays more whippy and lighter than US specs.. our build is smaller hence the difference.

This is something which I'm learning: Don't buy clubs to suit your price. Buy clubs to suit your game.

Aiyo.. how can use my nick and PGA Tour in the same sentence; unless it's to show contrast..

Anyhows.. golf is a game of contradictions; you hit down to get the ball up; setup left to hit right...
Then golfers want to play big size forgiving drivers, but small size blade irons???

Old man liao, eyesight poor.. the even those burner plus irons are starting to look small... Very Happy
