Also, the shaft that was in it might tell you also as some shafts don't come in parallel, etc...

Shac, just get taper shafts especially if steel.  if the irons turn out to be parallel, simple shimming will do.

Just as a side note, I sent my PRGR RS Forged irons for a reshaft today. I was still gaming the original m43 steel shafts. They are spec'd to be D1 according to PRGRs Website. The builder swing weighted the irons and guess what... They were all at D1.

Little update: played 9 with the new shafts. While they are quite a step up on weight (somewhere around 15 gr heavier) comparing to what I have been playing they certainly do not feel heavy. I was actually a little concerned they would be too heavy. I am happy to report that weight is not an issue with these for me.
Impact on these are more thumpy and dense if that makes any sense comparing to the ns pros St m43 (I think these are very similar to ns pro gh950) I have been gaming. I quite like it. There was a Wilson demo day that day. I hit a few balls with their new blade which looks gorgeous by the way. They feel superb when middling it. But that doesn't happen often enough, so they are not for me 😂. But they had the standard dynamic golds in them. I actually feel the standard version is a bit smoother than the dg120 version. The DG120 feel a bit crisper overall to me. I actually prefer the standard version from a feel perspective. But I am so far not unhappy with the DG120. Obviously, need more time but it is a promising start.
