I was recently fitted for some Steelhead XR irons. The fitting showed that the Speed Step 80 stiff shafts were the best option for me. I was also told that the XP95 could be an option for me. What is the difference between the two shafts?
I had a fitting 2 weeks ago that came down to those same 2 shafts. For my swing, the dispersion was slightly better along with the distance using the XP's. I gained about 2 yards on the simulator. I was replacing my set of XR's that had the speed step 80 shafts. Real world conditions, the XP95's launched the ball a bit higher and I did gain a little distance. Both landed softly. The XP's are about 6 grams heavier than the speed steps. The slightly heavier shaft fit my swing better. I think you would be happier with either. Just MHO.
