I’m 6’8″ and am having Maltby build me a set of irons at plus 1-1/2″ over standard length at 1/4″ progression between clubs from the 7i. I’m going with the DBM head and FST Pro 125 in X-Stiff. I currently have an order in for a 7i as a test club for this setup, just waiting on some backordered components to come in. In looking at the FST Pro trimming instructions I’m concerned that at my shaft length I won’t be getting X-Stiff in the completed club. For X-Stiff in the 7i FST instructions call for 5-3/4″ tip trim. To get a 38-1/2″ 7i there is only enough room to tip trim at 4.5″ (43″ shaft length – 38.5″ = 4.5″). This would equate to soft stepping twice. Everything I read indicates these particular shafts play softer than stated flex. What would the above scenario put my finished 7i at flex wise? To get a true X-Stiff shat at my playing length, would you recommend another shaft altogether?
