OBAN Oi-series Iron Shafts
While these are not new shafts, I thought it would be good to share with our readers how versatile these graphite iron shafts have been for us. The design of these I-series shafts is not totally unique to OBAN, but it is an interesting concept.
Shaft Weights from 43 to 103 grams
The weights of the graphite shafts go from roughly 43 grams (i-43) to 103 (i-103) in 10 gram increments. There are no designated flexes for theses shafts, just the weight classification. The lengths are 42″ in each shaft which allows us as club builders a lot of flexibility in terms of tipping to get to a particular flex and desired ball flight. Our sweet spot with theses shafts seems to be in the i63 – i83 range with a few of the i93 and i103.
Shaft Profile – Mid-High to High Trajectory, Mid-High to High Spin
These shafts have a nice soft tip which is great for smooth swings. We have fit a ton of lady, senior and junior players into these with excellent results. The key for us as builders is the blank length at 42″ so we can fit a very broad range of golfers depending upon the weight that works for them. This shaft can also be used in hybrids and we do it a lot so we can match the shafts in both irons and hybrids. Definitely a shaft for virtually any golfer needing this type of performance.
