    What are the Titleist "wedge" shaft specs for the SM6? Is this a spinner shaft? What is the difference between the Titleist labeled "wedge" shaft and other shafts, e.g., the XP, the TT DG, etc.? Weight, flex, trajectory, etc.

    My API 714 irons have the R XP shafts. IS the AMT Red the same?

    How do I decide what shaft to order?

    The standard shaft in the SM6 is a True Temper Dynamic Golf S200. I play the AP2 716s with Project X LZ 6.0 Shafts. But I left my SM6s with the S200. Obviously there are many options, but Titleist does a great job of putting the right shaft with the right club head so I left my SM6s alone and they are fine with the stock shaft.

    Hi Bill W ... I'm sure others on here will echo a similar thought and that is that the best way for you to get your wedges is to go to a good Titleist fitter, with an inventory of wedge shafts plus a Trackman.

    When I went for my fitting, we had different wedges to try with the different lofts, bounces and grinds. We also tried them with different shafts and I tried them off of turf and in bunkers. It was all supported by the use of a Trackman so that I could make a more informed decision on the specifications for my wedges.

    My wedges provide a good yardage gap to ensure that I can hit shots from the various distances, plus the shafts allowed me to see what I could generate for spin numbers as well (Trackman is great for these functions as the data it provides is invaluable for this). It may take a little bit of time and effort on your part, but I think that you will really appreciate the differences and the customization for you and your game.

    The best way to decide which is best is to try them all and compare the stats/what feels best for you.
