OT Tour iron shafts?
« on: September 19, 2018, 04:25:14 AM »
Anyone tried that shaft? Saw some irons (I’m tempted to try) with these shafts in 100 S-flex.

I have 90g hybrid shaft. It has a unique feel. Best I can describe is that it's very dense and strong? Probably due to braided carbon. It's very straight but I found that you can't take easy swings with it.

Thanks for Feedback
Can you compare it to the MCI shaft?
Had the club with OT shaft only in the hand (no testing range in the shop) but had the feeling it is on the stiffer side...

I have the OT 85 R but since I have been using MCI 65 R, I soft step the 85 twice. Without soft stepping, it would be stiffer even in R then what I used to.  The OT feels fine and easy to load but just not using it since I am not using my Epon 551 now.

I've never hit MCI but OT does feel stiff compared to everything else I've played.

Had the OT tour 100 S on several visits to the practice range (not on the course yet).
Well hardly any experience with graphite shafts in irons so difficult to compare for me.
One of the web pages I found a review and which got me intrigued on that shaft said about the OT tour something like: users of dynamic gold shaft which want a similar feel but less weight. Sums it up well. Very “steel feeling” graphite shaft at least as far as I can tell. As I want to keep the DG in the wedges I thought this should work.
Dispersion is very good - shaft is on the firmer side but that I expected from the comments before.
So far I like it. Let’s see what a visit on the course will bring.
Like also coloring: At address it is silver (iron like) only - the black/carbon fiber scheme with branding is on the back and not visible at address

The longer I play these the more I like them

It seems I’m not the only one ...

And try them I have. Played my first 9 holes with my AF-Tour/OTi Tour combo, and WOW. So that's why they're called On Target Iron, they're soooo straight. Obviously most blades feel great but I don't remember the AF-Tours feeling THIS good (last time I had them they were steel shafted). Had them built to 38 1/2" 5i and all lie angles adjusted to my spec. On one green I had the ball backing up 15ft with an 8i....holy shit man, this feels good. I've read that the profile of this shaft is similar to the OG blueboard, and I have a similar profile in my hybrid and driver, so it obviously suits me. Really looking forward to the autumn/winter season. Can't wait to shaft the wedges now :)
