Tensei AV White AM2 iron
« on: May 26, 2020, 09:39:03 AM »
Have been playing these in a couple of test clubs before shafting a set.  I have the 100g in S flex.
Test club 1 is a 4 iron TS909 shafted up with a hard step, playing @ 39".
Test club 2 is a 9 iron TS909 shafted straight in, playing @ 36.5".

In neither case did I pay much attention to SW, MOI, Spine, FLO or any other club building spec.  Just installed the shaft, cut to length and threw on a grip.

The purpose of the test was to see what flex was controllable for me.  Generally, the shorter the iron the stiffer the flex needs to be.  Also to see if I like the shaft.

First I built up the 4 iron to test the flex on a long iron.  Was getting good performance although I would not say it is an extremely low trajectory.

Since I liked the 4 iron I built up the 9 iron.  Good distance and was avoiding a big draw, which is what happens for me when a shaft is too loose in flex.  Definitely not a low ball flight with this build.

Gonna build up one more club, the PW using a hard stepped shaft.  The Gap wedge shaft is only 1/4" shorter than the PW but trusting they upped the flex some.  Hoping to see if it lowers the ball flight any.  If not, will likely end up going straight in with the shaft into the TS909 heads.

Not really, been a major Ho for a while.  Just been getting weaker so need to deal with shafting all of that which I have been ho'ing.
Covid has given me more time to tinker.

Can't tell if it is a US Spec by Mitsubishi or not. 

Oddly, when they were shipped from overseas it came through Aldila in CA.  Wonder what the relationship is there.

Mitsubishi owns Aldila and provides their materials IIRC
