Thanks for the reply, David. My next question has to do with shaft flex. Why do you feel that one flex fits all, when it is generally believed that swing acceleration affects the shaft deflection? A senior golfer with a slower swing compared to a tour player, and yet you offer just one shaft flex? I'm interested to learn the science behind the concept.
Thanks, as always.

We only offer our steel shafts in 1 Iron Golf clubs. The design of our golf shafts in combination with our proprietary Shaft Optimization Process produces a perfectly balanced golf club (all other brands use stock shafts with no balance criteria whatsoever). Once this perfect balance is achieved the concept of shaft flex disappears and the golf club will perform at its peak performance level regardless of swing speed or strength. You can liken it to a precisely balanced bull whip where there is a perfect transfer of power along its length from the butt to the tip regardless of the strength of the person using it. Our golf clubs are played by professional golfers and long-drive champions with extremely high swing speeds and played by senior men and women golfers with very low swing speeds. The results of our studies and testing over the past twenty years have shown that our shafting method produces the highest level of performance for any golfer. Also, we are the only golf club manufacturer to perform shaft flex plane orientation as part of our proprietary Shaft Optimization Process. If a golf club is shafted without regard to its inherent flex plane the shaft will try and rotate around its axis to a position of stability during the swing which creates an oscillation of the shaft and club-head. This oscillation results in the club-head literally wobbling through impact which causes miss-hits and is the main cause of "impact shock". When the shaft is correctly oriented in respect to its inherent flex plane it will resist twisting to any other position when placed under load and will remain stable through impact. It is as if the club-head is riding on rails through the impact zone.
