I purchased a set of 6.0 flighted shafts to assemble a set of MMB-17 Blacks. The golfer likes DG S300’s and I was looking to do a ‘close’ match to those and realize I should have got 5.5’s. Thinking of soft stepping the shafts by one. Would this result in ‘5.7’ish flex?
Soft stepping by one should put you right in the 5.7-5.8 range. So, your right on. I did the same thing with an old set of Project X Rifle shafts in our DBM forged irons and the result was 5.7-5.8 at a D2 swing weight, standard length.
