    Yep, I recently went back to a reg flex wedge shaft after thinking back to when i used to be a good and confident wedge player some 20 odd years ago. I used to have a std DG R300 shaft in some cheap progen gunmetal wedges and was sooo much better with them than anything i tried since with stiffer wedge shafts and spin wedge shafts and more recently the S400 tour wedge shafts that seem ubiquitous in off the peg retail wedges. So I bought a cheap budget no frills MacGregor 56 degree wedge with reg flex for £39 as an experiment and its made a big difference, especially with less than full shots, which is virtually every shot with a wedge. So i now have 3 x Cleveland RTX4 wedges with S400 shafts to sell.

    Really depends on the golfers starting point but I really like using x100 8iron shafts in all my wedges. For me it produces more spin w a slightly lower flight.

    Interesting – I have thought about this for my 50 and 54 but not my 58 and 62!!!!

    X100 in your irons, S400 in your wedges. Done.
