True Temper Elevate Shaft Review

50 Words or Less

The True Temper Elevate shaft seeks to counteract the strong lofts and low spin properties of today’s iron heads.

Introduction

As OEMs continue to push the limits of sanity with iron lofts, golfers are left to wonder, “Can I hold a green with a 7I anymore?”

Enter the True Temper Elevate, an iron shaft designed to boost launch and spin to optimal level for distance and stopping power.

Feel

One of the key technologies in the Elevate Tour shafts is VSS – Vibration Suppression System.  True Temper claims that this dampens 56% of the vibration of the shot (71% in Elevate 95) without suppressing feedback.  Call it placebo effect if you will, but I did feel like the Elevate had a cleaner impact sensation than other shafts.

During the swing, the Elevate Tour felt very stable but smoother than Dynamic Gold.  The Elevate Tour actually felt similar to my gamer, the KBS C-Taper Lite.  In comparing the two, I found the Elevate Tour to be slightly smoother and more active.

Performance

The similarities to the C-Taper Lite continued when I got on the launch monitor.  The Elevate Tour produced numbers that were nearly identical to the C-Taper Lite, which made it a perfect fit for me.  My shots launched on a consistent trajectory with just enough spin to hold a green.

Don’t be scared off by the name.  In my testing, I did not hit a single shot that ballooned or had any kind of unexpected result.  Players with the skill will be able to shape shots both ways and control trajectory.  This is not a soft, high launching shaft, merely one that is not as stout as Dynamic Gold.

There are two versions of the Elevate shaft.  The Elevate Tour, which I tested, is heavier and comes in three flexes.  The X-Flex weighs 122 grams, stiff weighs 117 grams, and regular flex is 112 grams.  The Elevate 95 is lighter and available in two flexes – stiff is 98 grams, regular is 96 grams.

Per True Temper, the Elevate 95 provides higher launch and higher spin and is best for players with a “Deliberate” tempo.

Conclusion

If you’re tired of watching your iron shots skitter across the green instead of sticking next to the pin, consider the True Temper Elevate shafts.  Players coming from stout, low launching shafts, will enjoy the stable feel while benefitting from the higher launch angles and slightly elevated spin.

    You making the switch?

    • Matt Saternus

      Marcos,

      Not at the moment. For as little golf as I play, I try to limit my changes. That said, the Elevate will be high on my list whenever I have a new set of irons built.

      Best,

      Matt

      • It was either these or the CTL’s for me. Funny they reminded you of them. I’m staying over 100g and I’m worried the E95 will balloon so I stuck with KBS.

  2. Looking to get fitted with the elevate 95 but iam not sure what club head…Ive tried a ping,Callaway…any thoughts

    • Matt Saternus

      Garry,

      Why make the decision in advance? Work with a fitter, test them all, buy what works best.

      Best,

      Matt

    • Eric Vitolo

      I just Got the Callaway apex pro iron with these shafts….. absolutely amazing! Smooth players iron with forgiveness! Check em out

      • Michael Salamone

        Hi Eric,
        Curious what level of player you are. I’m considering the Apex v the Apex Pro.

        • Got elevate 95r in my ping 430, love the feel. I am 72 but still get my 7iron 160, but now it tends to stick much better and my tempo is easy to replicate.

    • PXG has a major sale going on.
      Hope you are still in the market
      I ordered them less than a thousand 4-PW

      Thanks so much for the info

  3. How might this shaft compare to Modus 105 in stiff, my gamer the past 5 years or so?

  4. Mark Kuyawa

    Thanks Matt! I really enjoyed your reviews.

    How would you compare Ping 210 irons and
    PXG 0311 P Gen 2 irons ?

    I’m 63, 3 handicap.

    Thanks!

  5. any comps with the xp 95 or 105?

    I have to go really light to get my launch and spin up even with a driver ss of over 100

    • Matt Saternus

      Alan,

      I didn’t test head to head, but my sense is that the XP is higher launching and spinning.

      Best,

      Matt

  6. How does the elevate 95 compare to the Nippon 950GH? Thank you.

    • Matt Saternus

      Jeff,

      I didn’t test the 95 gram version of the Elevate.

      Best,

      Matt

      • Richard Vasquez

        I play the Apex 21 with the Elevate 95 reg. Distance is short and pull to the left, with these I hit the 7 iron 140 yards with a deliberatetempo. I’m 64 yrs. Will the Elevate stiff help?

        • Matt Saternus

          Richard,

          The only way to know for certain is to test them in a fitting. That said, you’re missing short, that indicates a mishit or poor club selection, neither of which is going to be fixed with a stiffer shaft.

          Best,

          Matt

  7. What is a deliberate tempo?

    • Matt Saternus

      Ray,

      It’s just a way of describing someone with a smoother swing, someone who doesn’t aggressively force the club out of transition.

      Best,

      Matt

  8. Matt, how does tour elevate stiff compare to Modus 120 stiff? Thank you.

    • Matt Saternus

      Jeff,

      The Modus is smoother, to me. The profile and performance are similar.

      Best,

      Matt

      • Forgive my ignorance, I’m wondering if there’s a correlation between shaft feel and tempo? More specifically, do smoother feeling shafts tend to fit players with a smoother, more deliberate & even swing tempo?
        P.S. Thanks for another excellent review!

        • Matt Saternus

          Joeg,

          With the caveat that we’re painting with a broad brush, yes, I think that smoother or more active shafts generally work better for players who have smoother transitions.

          Best,

          Matt

          • I’ve enjoyed these shafts since I’ve gotten them. I’m simply debating if it’s worth it to go from Stiff to Regular flex? My irons don’t miss to the right, I like my launch, high and straight, some baby draws. Just peace of mind I’m looking for haha.

      • Michael Salamone

        Hi Matt,
        Enjoy your honest reviews.
        I”m a 3-4 Handicap. Would you recommend Apex or P790’s? I currently play Callaway Rogue w/ stock Adila Graphite 65g. Love the distance but want more consistency. Thanks

      • Charles Yaniko

        Bought new set if cobra king tour mim irons. Have c taper reg shafts. These feel heavy and stiff to me. Loosing distance and height. I think I need to change shafts to a more friendly reg flex than the c taper. I am 65 with driver ss of around 98 to 102. I have an aggressive transition but not a digger. Would these shafts work or any suggestions. Also worried about swing weight with a shaft change, but I know c taper r, feels like a stiff to me. Help?

        • Matt Saternus

          Charles,

          My best advice is to get fit. The C-Taper is a very stout, heavy shaft, so there are loads of options that will be lighter and easier to swing. You can buy-and-try, but that’s ultimately going to cost a lot more and be a lot more frustrating than working with an expert.
          Regarding swing weight, any good builder can “neutralize” the effect of the shaft change and get your set to the swing weight you want.

          -Matt

  9. So I’ve hit both the 95 S & R and the Tour R and found them similar. The Tour S was a little too stiff for me. I asked you earlier what the definition of deliberate was and you said something about a smooth tempo. The Mizuno optimizer put me in an R flex and in the 90-110 g weight range with a 75 mph 7 iron swing. C Taper Lite was my top rec. So it’s pretty darn accurate. So my question is why wouldn’t you designate the Tour R for a deliberate type swing?

    • Matt Saternus

      Ray,

      I’m not sure what you’re trying to get at here. Where did I say that the Tour R would be inappropriate for a deliberate swing?

      -Matt

  10. Ray Farrell

    Sorry, it was a long day.
    All Im trying to ask is if you feel the Tour R, and maybe the S, could be categorized as suitable for deliberate swing types as well as the 95 series.
    Thanks again

    • Matt Saternus

      Ray,

      Absolutely. If you’ve read much of this site, you’ve probably gathered that I put limited stock in the overly broad rules such as “Shafts like ____ are only for ____ golfers.” It always comes down to individual fit, and any fitter has seen plenty of examples that break all the rules.

      Best,

      Matt

  11. Garrett C Broschard

    Matt,
    How would the elevate 95 stiff compare to the KBS Tour 90’s? I’ve decided on the Apex 19 forged, but unfortunately I didn’t test the Elevate when I hit them.
    Thank you

  12. How would you compare the Elevate tour x-stiff to the DG 120 x100.

  13. How is this VSS technology different from their previous SensiCore technology? It seems pretty much identical. Perhaps change in materials.

    • Matt Saternus

      Frank,

      SensiCore is an insert that goes into the shaft. VSS is part of the design of the shaft itself.

      Best,

      Matt

  14. John D Williamson

    Hey Matt. Did the regular flex in this tour shaft feel somewhat stable. It’s 112 grams. I play Project X lz 5.5 Looking for something I can grow into with a new set I’m getting and dont want to change clubs for a while. I usually dont change irons for 8-10years. I know you will say test them out first and I will. I’m 47 and I have ankylosing spondylitis. My driver went ss went from 120 to 105 and has been pretty devastating. In about a 12 Year span. I do yoga and I haven’t quit playing but I probably will. This may be my last set. Sorry to go off on a tangent but it has devastated me and I live in pain. I’ll go test them just wanted your opinion.

    • Matt Saternus

      John,

      I didn’t test the regular, so, unfortunately, I can’t offer any opinions on that.

      Best,

      Matt

    • Rodd Macklin

      I have the tour r.. 7 iron swing low 80s. Feels great. A tad light for me at 112g when i transition too quickly so i need to figure out if i should use lead tape or something.

  15. John D Williamson

    OK I guess I read that wrong. I thought you tried all 3 Tour flexes. I hit them tonight. I’m going Tour stiff soft stepped. Thanks Matt.

  16. Mark Kuyawa

    I hit the regular flex in a fitting last week and really liked it. Not sure of weight. I currently play Modus 105 in stiff and I think this new shaft performed better. I’m 63, up to a 4 handicap and battling back issues. I also hit Steel Fiber 95 grams in regular and very similar Track Man numbers

  17. How do these compare to the Project X lz’s? Both seem to be going after the same goal in creating higher launch to add more “stopping power” when trying to hold greens.

    • Matt Saternus

      Steve,

      I have limited experience with the LZ, but my impression is that the LZ is more active than the Elevate. Overall, I would agree that they’re similar shafts.

      Best,

      Matt

  18. Keith W Hayes

    Do you know how these compare to the KBS Max?

  19. Keith W Hayes

    Thanks for the quick response.
    According to the stats on the manufacturer pages the KBS Max is 102g. The Elevate tour is 112g and the Elevate 95 is 96g.
    I probably should have been more specific as I am primarily interested in launch and spin.
    I had a fitting and got put in the KBS Max with a Big Bertha head.
    After looking on the Callaway website at all the different shaft options I am concerned that the fitter only had me swing 2 shafts. One steel (KBS Max) and one graphite (not sure which).
    I definitely hit the steel more consistent than the graphite and like the heavier club feel as well.

    • Matt Saternus

      Keith,

      If you’re not confident in the fit, you should definitely go back and try more options or at least try those same options again.
      I haven’t tested the Max and Elevate head to head, so I can’t give you any information about their comparative performance.

      Best,

      Matt

  20. I have heard that club fitters are finding that the Elevate shaft is playing a little softer and they are fitting players that may play a regular flex into the stiff flex. Have you found this to be the case??

    • Matt Saternus

      Marty,

      I haven’t talked to the fitters I know about the Elevate specifically since I wrote this review. Based on the way it felt to me, I could see that as a possibility, but I don’t know it to be the case.

      Best,

      Matt

  21. Matt
    Loaded question here, but first time asking! I have a background in the game which I won’t bore you with. However, I have a somewhat specific, yet general question: Hit the Elevate 95 stiff(Callaway Version) in a x-forged from a fitting cart. Loved it! Purchased a used 3 iron Apex iron with the Elevate 95 and hit it well!! I just ordered the Elevate 95 Tours which are tapers vs the Callaway Elevate parallels. My question; in your testing of shafts, have you found a significant difference between parallel and taper of a similar model shafts??? Wanting to put the Elevate Tour 95 in a combo set of x forged 18 and MB’s. I’m 60 years old and still shoot par or better, having played professionally eons ago!!

    • Matt Saternus

      Tanner,

      Great question, and one we may explore in a future Golf Myths Unplugged. At the moment, however, I don’t have any data from which to form an opinion about taper vs. parallel tipped shaft. Sorry I can’t be more helpful.

      Best,

      Matt

  22. Hi Matt,
    I am in the process of switching irons, played old Tommy Armour’s in stiff for the last 20+ years. And now i think it’s time to change those old trusty iron for something modern…i was fitted for Apex Combo w/ the Elevate 95 stiff, but without having played with them yet (swinging in the garage), i find them a little whippy, which worries me a bit. I am 52, play off of a 8 hdc , (club speed of about 95-98 mph) but don’t drive the ball that well…iron hitting is good. I want a club that will last me a few years. Can you provide any insight?
    Thx

    • Matt Saternus

      Ron,

      If you were fitted into the Apex/Elevate combo by a good fitter, I would trust that fitting unless I saw a substantial amount of data on the course that said the irons didn’t work.

      Best,

      Matt

  23. whats the difference between the Elevate 95 and the XP 95? Are they the same but just a newer model or are there differences?

  24. Does the 95 Elevate balloon the ball into the wind?

  25. Can you tip these shafts without losing the characteristics?

    • Matt Saternus

      I haven’t tested them after tipping so I can say for sure. Generally, tipping leaves you with the same shaft but stiffer.

      -Matt

  26. Neal Mechling

    Have you compared the elevate stuff 120g with dynamic gold S300

    • Matt Saternus

      Neal,

      No, I tested the Elevate in X-flex.

      -Matt

      • Hi Matt, what’s your 7 iron club head speed. Mine is 83mph, would the elevate x flex be okay to use or would you need more club head speed. Thanks in advance.

        • Matt Saternus

          Michael,

          Choosing the right flex goes beyond swing speed. I think 83 MPH for an Elevate X could be correct depending depending on your tempo and what you need in terms of ball flight.

          Best,

          Matt

  27. Matt:

    I was so pleased that you reviewed these shafts back when you did, because they ended up on my “Matt Recommends” list (you’re inspiring me to get out and try more and more gear, but it’s beginning to cost me pal). I did end up moving to the Elevate 95 shafts after much hemming and hawing about graphite vs steel, lighter shaft vs heavier, et cetera, etc. I primarily needed some more club head speed, but also needed some reduced vibration – without compromising accuracy and feel. I definitely hit the steel shafts with greater consistency with much better feel, but the graphite felt better on the joints. Yes, I could practice less, and play fewer rounds, but meh…that’s just not happening.

    I really wanted the graphite shafts to work, but the fitter said, it was all too obvious I was trying to make my swing match the shaft…nope…not a good strategy, he was right. I was starting to lose faith, when I remembered your review about the Elevate 95, and he lit up, found one on the racks, installed it on the club head and BINGO! I’ve been playing it now for a couple months and I’ve been so impressed, my scores have stayed nice and steady and my comfort and confidence with these shafts is only growing.

    Coming from the Nippon 105 Tour and KBS Tour 105, I thought I would be disappointed with this transition, but the only thing I had to acclimate to was greater distance – anywhere from about 5-10 yards difference depending on the club, and less aching in the joints after practice and playing. I’m still working out the yardage as I play, but it’s getting more and more clear what these shafts can do. The accuracy is still there, and the ball flight is just gorgeous, no spinning up, no ballooning, just a mid to mid-high arc that keeps putting the ball right where I’m aiming. I can still work the ball, but I’ve taken on a new approach to simply going for the center of the green and putting for birdie instead of trying to work so much. Yeah, ok, I still have to put a little spin on it from time to time for effect and certainly in windy conditions I will play the right spin. And, the nice thing is, when I do want to go after it and step on it for a little juice, it still doesn’t spin up like some other softer shafts did.

    Most noticeable, however, is the Elevate 95’s ability to dampen the vibrations – that’s a huge plus for a 60 something y.o. who still loves to practice hours on end. Also, for the record, I do have a smooth tempo and quiet transition in my swing, so I can’t speak for the golfer who swings more violently – but then again, that’s why I liked the Nippon and KBS so much. They loaded up nicely with my swing type, as does this shaft.

    Matt, as always, thanks again for all your reviews. I have come to rely on your insights and they’ve all paid off, or maybe more accurately, paid out.
    Cheers;
    Jay

    • Hi Jay, I am in exactly the same position as you , I playEd the modus 105 in stiff for the last 4 yrs, but have always been on the cusp of reg/ stiff. When swapping to the 95 elevate did the flex stay the same ?, I could also do with the distance increase at 61 thus going from mizuno sc 18 to Callaway apex forged 19, thanks Keith

  28. Matt,
    Can you tell me a shaft that would compare to the Memphis 10 UNIFLEX SHAFTS CALLAWAY irons, looking at buying new clubs and I live the MEMPHIS 10 SHAFT , is there a shaft out there today that compared to that shaft?? Thanks

    • Matt Saternus

      Keith,

      I’m not sure what current shaft best compares. My advice would be to take your current clubs to a fitter and try a lot of different iron shafts until you find the one that feels and performs the way that you want.

      Best,

      Matt

  29. Hi i just bought callaway mavrik iron set online they came with the true temper shafts now on the listing it said stiff so i figured they were coming with the 98 gram shaft but now that i have received them i got the 96 gram shaft regular….. so my question is will there be a big difference ? i dont feel like going through the whole process of returning them. But do you guys think is there a big difference ? thxs

    • Matt Saternus

      Francisco,

      The weight difference isn’t big, but the difference in flex might be meaningful to you. If I were in your shoes, I would return them and get what I ordered.

      -Matt

      • Ty Matt ,
        It’s exactly what i did today. Thxs again !! Happy Holidays

      • Hey matt, i currently have 2019 m2’s with the stuff flex reax steel shafts. Im going with the new apex 21’s which have the true temper elevate 95 regular flex shafts. Is this too big of a drop off in terms of shaftvweight and flex? I currently hit my 7 iron 175 with my m2’s

        • Matt Saternus

          Sal,

          I don’t know the weight of the Reax off hand, but I’d guess they’re in the same ~100 gram range as the Elevate 95.

          Best,

          Matt

  30. Michael Doerfler

    What is your swing speed? Since the X- flex was the right shaft stiffness.

    Thanks

  31. How similar would these be to the old True Temper DG High Launch?

    • Matt Saternus

      Paul,

      Unfortunately I don’t know much about the DG High Launch, so I can’t compare.

      Best,

      Matt

      • How would you compare the Elevate tour to NP PRO 950gh NEO with the same flex ? on feel? what type of player should use the NEO and or Elevate. ? Are they similar? Which one would be easy to control? Which one would you recommend?

        • Matt Saternus

          Dennis,

          I would recommend that everyone get a fitting before buying new clubs. The Elevate Tour and NEO are similar in weight, though the NEO is noticeably lighter. In terms of profile, again, same ballpark broadly speaking, but the NEO is smoother and more active.

          -Matt

  32. Thank you it’s just my set comes with elevate and I have a set of np 950 gh neo at home just to get an opinion about the feel difference.

  33. Michael S Remy

    I went to a fitter and they recommended the tour shaft…problem is I don’t want to pay what they’re asking…I can get king cobra forged tec irons in the 95 shaft…is there much of a difference?

    • Matt Saternus

      Michael,

      I never recommend going against the fitter’s recommendation. While it’s possible that you won’t find a substantial difference between the two shafts, you might find it’s completely different for you.

      -Matt

  34. Joe Thorpe

    i Matt,

    I have just been fit for these shafts in some PXG 0211’s. I’m also looking at some vokey wedges and wondered if you could recommend a a shaft that is close to these as they aren’t available custom fit from titliest.

    Thanks!

    • Matt Saternus

      Joe,

      I never endorse going against a fitter’s recommendation. I understand that the right shaft might cost more in the short term, but I will always argue that well fit clubs are the best value.

      -Matt

  35. Patterson Richard

    I played the 95 for a dozen rounds and I loved them. They go high, don’t balloon at all and like the review says, they bite by the holes and I was playing a few elevated greens that were a little dry. I’m getting these or the 85s in my next set. I might even put them in my X14s which I adore and still play with alot. They could used a little higher flight and extra spin.

  36. How would you compare the VSS Tour 122 gram x stiff shaft to the S300 . I’ve been told that the VSS Tour X Stiff 122 gram is actually not as firm in the tip section as a S300. I was fitted in the VSS tour x stiff in my PXG 0311P irons and had been playing the S300 prior in my Bridgestone tour forged. . Thanks

    • Matt Saternus

      Mark,

      I haven’t hit them head to head, but my guess is that the Elevate in X is probably a bit softer in the tip than the S300.

      -Matt

  37. Hi Matt,
    I am trying to order new irons and tested the Apex21 but can’t remember the shaft stiffness when I did as sim time was limited due to covid restrictions. Now I can’t even get in there at all to test one out. Given a generally moderate and relaxed tempo would you say its safer to go into a REG or A STIFF flex? In other words if I have to choose one blindly then the safer bet is…. Im 37 and 190lbs and often told I have a very relaxed and chill swing.
    Thanks for your time.

    • Matt Saternus

      Brad,

      Your description leads me toward saying regular, but I’ll ask this: how would you prefer to be wrong? Would you rather have a shaft that’s too stiff or too soft?

      -Matt

  38. Hi,
    I went to get fitted, tried so many clubs and shafts, in the end the only clubs that I could hit constantly was the Mavrik pro with the elevate r-flex 95 shaft. Wow, amazing shaft height and stoping power with 7 iron. I was averaging around 160 yard carry. and was like hitting through butter.. you have to go and test these shafts. Best I have ever hit the ball.

  39. Maurice Cohen

    I am 81 and still use apex pro 19 irons with the elevate tour 115 reg shaft. I have tried a Mizuno club with a 90 gram graphite shaft and they feel as heavy as lead. I think swing weight is still important. Gary Player used to say D0 swing weight is heavy enough for we amateurs.

    • Matt Saternus

      Maurice,

      Swing weight is definitely important for players at all levels. However, I think Gary Player is horribly mistaken to lump all amateurs into one group. There are as many higher handicap players who can benefit from heavier swing weights as lighter ones.

      -Matt

  40. Randy Peterson

    How does the Elavate 95 compare to the Steelfiber 95cw for launch and feel?

  41. Hi Matt, how would you compare the Elevate 95 Stiff vs the Elevate Tour in Stiff? Can you describe how both of them compare regarding feeling and ball flight? I currently play with project x 5.5, which one of these would you think feel more similar to the project x?

    • Matt Saternus

      The only Elevate that I’ve reviewed it the Elevate Tour X-flex, shown in this review, so I can’t give you a knowledgeable comparison between the shafts you referenced.
      If you’re looking for a new shaft that will feel similar to your PX, my suggestion would be to get a fitting and try a variety of things to find what feels similar to you.

      -Matt

  42. Wayne Hachey

    Hi Matt, I am considering the Elevate XP 95 for my 14 year old son. He plays off a 4 handicap, with about 74 mph with a 7 iron (140 carry). I am also considering the Nippon 950 GH or 950 Neo as well as I have read so many great things about these shafts. Do you think there is a real big difference? As the new Ping i210’s would come with the Elevate shaft included and the Nippon would be an upcharge.Thanks for your help!

      Wayne,

      My recommendation is always to get a fitting. I think the shafts you’re comparing are significantly different in feel, but others may not notice it. The performance difference is noticeable to me, for others it won’t be. The only way to know is to try them.

  43. My son has the 2021 P790s with the Elevate shafts in stiff ! He’s complaining that the shafts r pitting ( going rusty) .
    I’ve looked at them and agreed that it’s not acceptable! They r only 3 months old , cost a fortune and he keeps them inside the house !
    Why r they going rusty ??

      Mark,

      I can’t speak to the cause, but I’d suggest contacting True Temper. I would hope they would make this right for you.

      Best,

    I have a set of PXG 0311XP with True Temper Elevate 95 R flex. I have had the set 11 months. I have had the shaft in my 9 iron & 8 iron brake about 3 inch below the grip. Have you heard about anyone else having there shaft brake?

  45. Matt I’m considering P790 irons with Elevate 96 regular shafts. Is there much difference in flex between E95 and E96 reg shafts? Also do E96 have VSS? I’m 72 with a similar slow swing speed, handicap 15 and looking for more distance now.. the E95 shafts sound appropriate for me but the P790 deal has E96s. I know you will say “get fitted” but it’s difficult to find a fitter near me with P790s in stock.

      Mike,

      I’m not familiar with the differences between the E95 and E96.
      Where do you live? There are Club Champions almost everywhere, and they all have the P790 to fit with.

  46. I’m glad I found this shaft! It’s a great upgrade from my old one.

    Enjoyed your article. My iron set is Callaway Rouge ST Pros. Irons have the Elevate 95 MPH Regular Flex. But I am replacing a lost 7 iron with same shaft but Stiff flex (was a reasonable price preowned). How muck of a difference should I expect. I am a 10 handicap. Thanks

      Keith,

      Unfortunately, it’s impossible for me to say. Some people can switch flexes and barely notice. Others think it’s night and day. I hope that for you it’s the former.

      Best,

  48. Got new ping430 with 95R elevate very happy with the feel and weight. Swing speed is about 80 but ball speed is much higher. This works for me!!

    I have a set of TA6 irons that I love and the club faces are in great shape. These clubs came with the True Temper Action Lite regular shafts. I am thinking about changing to the Elevate 95 Regular flex. Would you recommend this and will I see a difference in weight?

    • Matt Saternus

      Jonathan,

      I’m not that familiar with the Action Lite, so I don’t know their weight. As to changing shafts in general, I don’t recommend it without a fitting first as you won’t know for certain what the results will be.

      Best,

      Matt
