I have a set of STi clubs with Kuro Kage shafts that I played a lot the last couple of years. They have been great. Really love them. I am wondering about the differences in the new STi2 heads and how they might perform in comparison. One thing I noticed is the gaps between lofts are less on some.
Also what light weight steel shaft would you recommend that is close to graphite weight?
The STi sand wedge is one of the best I have played.
The STi was in the Ultra Game Improvement category with an MPF of 857. The new STi2 is in the Super Game Improvement category with an MPF of 757. The difference comes mainly from a slightly shorter c-dimension and blade length in the STi2 and a slightly lower MOI. The Actual Vertical cg is lower in the STi2 (.729 vs .750). 100 point playability difference will not be noticed by most players. That being said, the MPF tells us that the STi will be very slightly more forgiving. From testing, I can tell you (having hit many shots in the testing phase of the STi2) that is an outstanding iron. I would not hesitate to put in the hands of someone that had been playing any Ultra Game Improvement iron. Extremely solid, with great distance. The STi is and was our best seller. A great iron that was very affordable and offered great performance. The STi2 is a little more expensive ($19.99 per head), but offers a step up in appearance, features and performance (in my opinion).
