Raw weight: 437.92 (4.8g lighter than Lag’s specs)
Swingweight: D6 (added 7g of lead tape to achieve this)
Shafts: s500 (I cannot find that raw weight of these, but I am guessing 125-130g)
Raw weight: 454.7 (13g lighter than Lag’s specs! )
Swingweight: D6 (added 7g of lead tape to achieve this, most of the irons were D2.5)
Raw weight: 469.10 (12g lighter than Lag’s specs )
Swing weight: D6 (added 7g of lead tape etc)
So my questions are:
Pros/cons of tipweighting
What does an old school blade iron head weigh?
I know the easy route is to buy an old school set (I thought I had actually!) Seems that even blades got a bit light headed after say…1970! And yes I can estimate based on my numbers above but I am not certain about the weight of the s500s etc. Surely your can set up a “Lag Set” in the modern era!
I coach. I pretty much sold my best player on the heavy…stiff…flat business. But he is assuming that the modern blade is heavy. His “numbers” at the the club fitter were good. He is putting the KBS tour x-stiff tour shaft and having it swign weighted to D6. The clubfitter pitched a fit, but his numbers got better the heavier and stiffer he went! I am concerned that modern blades simply are not nearly as heavy as the old stuff…so what to do?
