  1. Hey Team,

    I got fitted today for the T100s with Project X LZ 6.0 in the irons.

    Totally forgot to ask about wedges until I got home. Would it be beneficial to get this same shaft in the wedges? Also would I need to get heavier shaft / stiffness or keep everything the same?

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers, Jonny

    You could go with the exact same shaft or one weaker; ie, 5.5 if you want to stick with the Project X LZ throughout your entire sets of irons. The stock shaft in Vokey’s is DG S200, which may be slightly heavier and stiffer. That seems to work fine for most players. Due to the shorter length shaft in wedges, I really don’t believe you can go wrong either way. Feel and consistency are what’s critical with your wedges. I hope this helps.

    Jonny...there was a post not to long ago under Vokey wedges on this.

    I am ordering new wedges this fall and I am going same shafts straight in on my sand and lob since my irons are hardstepped once. I play the project x lz 5.0 and thought of going heavier with the 5.5, but I called WedgeWorks and he said to go the same shaft and heavier swingweight will soften the shaft. My sand and lob will be at D3, my irons are D1. My 50 gap will be the same as my irons. He was a great help and explained it very well. Good luck.

    PS, give an update on the 100s of how you like them. I love my 718 ap2’s, but the extra distance and not affecting the bounce has me intrigued. Good luck!!
  4. I think there is a school of thought that you match the shafts in your irons for wedges you will be swinging full speed, like a 52 degree. But for wedges used primarily around the green, like a 56 or 58, the heavier stock DG is better.

    I would agree with Tom and say that if you stick with the same shaft for a consistent feel, having the same flex isn't bad. I think most tour pros even go just a bit softer as Tom mentioned, as wedge shots are usually not full shots, but more about feel.

    You could get your gap wedge in a 6.0, since most players take full shots with that and then 5.5 with the SW and LW or just got GW, SW & LW in the 5.5.

    Of course, you could go and get fitted, as there might be other shafts that are better suited for wedges and could help with whatever shots you normally play.

    But I mean, if you are getting Vokey wedges, you can never go wrong with those!!
  6. I would want the same shaft in all irons that I plan to use with a full swing. My set includes the same shaft in all irons down to the sand wedge. My lob wedge is the stock shaft.
  7. Thanks for the advise everyone. I’m a very target golf type of guy and try to hit to exact numbers for approach shots. I generally hit all my wedges as full shots so I decided to go with the same shafts throughout.

    I will let everyone know how it goes. Love this community and all the help everyone gives.
