With a constant weight every shaft weigh the same weight no matter if it's in a 5i or 9i. If you use a non constant weight shaft the weight decreases towards the short irons. The 9i shaft is lighter than the 5i shaft. For some people that doesn't feel right because the weight distribution changes / shifts through the set.
There are also players that like to have a weight increase for the shaft towards the short irons so the 9i shaft is heavier than the 5i shaft.

Thanks for chiming in.

So it's more a feel thing I'm gathering...

Yes, from a players perspective it's about feel. Which is influenced by weight, weight distribution / balance, bend point, flex but primarily by weight.

aerotech ,  monaccos   shimada  are CW.
I found the  short irons are the ahrder to get used to....... counter intuitive but   I found the pw/ 9i  doesn feel like it does in a  " normal set'   its totally the worng way round  but that's how I find it, the 9/pw  feel stiffer than the 3-4-5.

makes no sense, but that's what I get

Thanks, I may try these.  Just realized the bangvoos and roddio are ascending weight shafts in that the shorter irons weigh more than the longer iron shafts raw.  After butt trimming, they MAY be close to constant weight.
