Wedge shaft recommendations
« on: February 14, 2018, 09:27:53 PM »
Play Roddio I 7s in Epon 503s 5-PW and need some suggestions on what shafts to install in my 503 AW and Miura K Grind wedges 56 & 60. Usually take full to 3/4 shots with the AW and 1/2-3/4 shots with the 56/60. Any input will be appreciated.

graphite or steel?
for graphite mci 90 or oti 95
or you can go like nspro 950.

ideally if you can get roddio i8/19 for your wedges they would be perfect.

For graphite, I think Attas has a 95 gram version of the Spin Wedge shaft.  Or get Roddio i-9 or i-10s.

Thank you. I would prefer graphite. If I went with the Roddio, would I get wedge shafts or 8/9 iron shafts and Tiger step them?

So just use PW shafts cut to length in the AW, 56, & 60?

Some graphite iron shafts worked as wedge shafts, and some didn't.
For example;
Attas 9s irons did but Attas 120 wedges didn't.
Quadra 100i irons did but 100i wedges didn't.
SF i95 did, players Spec irons didn't, i125 wedges did.
Crazy cbi-02 didn't but Crazy 110 wedge did.
Quadra 120x did in both......
Roddio i-10sx irons did. Never tried them in wedges.

From what I've experienced above, I would go with what spoon said and try the i-8 and/or i-9.
Driver: jBEAM Glorious 10.5* + Motore VT 7.0x, 45.5", Superstroke.
HY: Fourteen UT716 1i/3i/5i + Thump h90x, 39"-42", Superstroke.
Irons: OnOff Forged 6i - PW + Accra Tour Ti Mesh, Superstroke.
Wedges: Epon Tour 51*/57* + Accra Tour Ti Mesh, Superstroke.
Putter: Rife Barbados, Garsen.

I would go i9 stiff 9i shafts...will be meatier, more consistent but load able for full shots...I like the feel of a heavier shaft with the wedges...i10 9i shaft the best for me feel wise...seem to chip and pitch ok with anything though...
