Arthur Xtreme Engineering Xcaliber Graphite Iron Shaft Specifications

AXE XCaliber Graphite Irons Shafts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I have been making clubs for over 25 years and have tried all kinds of combinations. I am a 60 year old, 6 handicap. I have been playing Acculite Steel shafts for the past couple of years, but the vibration was getting to my shoulders and hands. I decided to look for a graphite shaft, but was having trouble finding one with a low torque that didn't break the bank. A friend of mine that played the mini-tours suggested I look into XCaliber and boy am I glad he did. I love these shafts! Solid feel with great stability, even on off center hits. These shafts are great for hybred heads as well. I play hybreds down to my 7. Don't laugh until you try it. These shafts will stay in my bag from this point forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from as good as they get installed these in a full set of KZG forged irons, stiff flex, excellent results. Only other iron shaft that is comparable is SK Fiber and the Xcalliber has lower more boring flight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AXE XCaliber Graphite Irons Shafts I removed the TT steel shafts that came with the Maltby TE Forged iron package and added these AXE XCaliber Graphite shafts. Set looks great, feels really good in my hands, plus by eliminating approximatly 20-25 grams per club I'm averaging approximately 15 yards longer per club. At 69 and hitting that extra distance I'm smiling alot more these days. I love this combination and wish Maltby would package more sets for us older guys and gals. I shot a 74 on 6700 yd. course last week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Shafts!!!!! I play these shafts in both my Ping G driver and Titleist AP1 Irons and love both the control and distance I get from them. I have played other graphite shafts in the past but once I put these in I now wouldn't play anything different. I sincerely hope these will be around for a long time as they are great shafts and hope others give them a try. The shaft I have in the Driver is the SWD50 Stiff Flex and in the Irons are the Taper Tip Reguler Flex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality!! I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the shaft(.355 taper tip). It has proven to be just what I needed to improve both accuracy and distance. An excellent shaft at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shafts Dropped these shafts into 5-9 Irons of my Taylormade Rocketbladez I got on sale last fall. Only got in a couple rounds at the end of the season with them. Had stock Regular flex steel shafts which provided nasty feedback on thin hits. Did a club fitting with Taylormade rep recently who said I actually needed Stiff flex based on club head speed. Great! They have graphite shafts, drop em in there. Mmmm, not so fast. Seems TM doesn't make shafts available to club builders. So I'm supposed to drop $1,000 on new clubs? I bought these last fall! So off to GW in Ottawa I go. Worked with launch monitor to get numbers, tried a couple shafts and had them do a 5 Iron to start with. Got it back a couple days later, and back to to the monitor. Balls were 195-205 with a slight fade based on my set up. Really a great feel when struck cleanly. Soft on the hands even when mis-hit. Ball just rockets off the face when hit on the screws. Handed over the 6-9 Irons to be done. Again, the turnover was only a couple days. Work was well done, well priced, and I feel far more confident hitting these clubs now. Can't wait to get them outside!! C'mon Spring! I have golf to play! A great job by the GW group here in Ottawa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great shaft for any amount of money! Great shaft, buttery smooth. I even gained about 5 yards. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very responsive iron shaft I bought these (XCaliber S-flex) for a handbuilt set to replace my old Nike Slingshot HLs which were shafted with factory UST S-flex high-kick. I assembled them with a 3-PW set of new-old-stock Vulcan XDC3 forged. Tolerances were great, I measured .375" with paint coat on the shafts, when tip-prepped they were just under .370". The included trim instructions were appreciated although I cut the tips just 1/4" longer than the instruction sheet indicated in order to soft-step them a half-club or so. Once they were bonded, butt-trimmed and gripped, I hit them at the range. Of course, going from cast to forged heads, it was much more necessary to hit the ball in the sweet spot for a pure shot. Launch angle was definitely reduced and spin seems to be lower also. I gained about 5 yards per club. The very low torque (2.3, I think?) is a big help in hitting the ball dead straight. I don't fade the ball at all and in fact had been over-drawing it with the Nike clubs so I am really impressed with the accuracy benefits of this shaft. Feel is nice and smooth except on very off-center strikes. The extra 10 grams per shaft helps with tempo as well. Playing these clubs has been a blast. The shafts have not suffered any scratching in about 20 rounds. I find it easy to choke down for pitch or punch shots without losing feel. Par-3 tee shots are flying precisely without the ballooning I had with the high-launch irons. Shock from fat or bladed hits is not transmitted as with steel, although they are not as soft as some graphite S-flex I have played. Bottom line, these shafts work very well as a replacement for good-quality steel or graphite and have a player's specs for torque and kick point.

Continued, Sorry. Driver 95 mph moderate tempo. 150 yd 6 iron. Build graphite irons on 38.5" 5 iron, swt. D2 or 3. From experience, Steel Rifle 4.5 and DG R300 38" 5 iron work well for me. Thank You!

Asked by: Peter
From this information the R flex Xcaliber shaft could work well for you. The biggest difference you will notice is the change of shaft weight going from steel to graphite.

Would these R flex be too soft for me? Maltby has me at 3B2M, but shafts that would fit me best are S flex G-Tech, S flex ProCustom, S flex USTComp series. I  consider them more R+, but if these play soft R, afraid I may run out of room to hard step them.

Asked by: Peter
As an R flex the Xcaliber iron shafts play pretty true to flex and you really do not have enough parallel tip length to do any additional tip trimming to make these play a little stiffer. The parallel tip length is 5.5" and the tip trimming for the wedges is 4" and we always recommend leaving 1.5" of parallel tip length for proper installation.

Which do you suggest- Aerotech I 70 A flex vs. Xcaiber AXE A flex for my irons? I am 68 / 20+ hdcp./ 6 iron =145 yds.

Asked by: RRM
I have the Aerotech in both  6 iron Titleist and your +4 Tour  Maltby. I prefer the Maltby 6 iron the best with the Aerotech. I thought maybe the XCaliber may be more forgiving? I enjoy their shaft in my Maltby wedge.

My divot with my irons is deeper at the toe then heel by 1/2 inch how do i correct this problem? My 9 iron is a 64 deg. lie, do i increase it to 66 deg.?

Asked by: kpc1
Toe deep divots either indicate a lie problem and yes you would need to go more upright. Toe deep divots could also indicate a swing where you cast the club from the top of your swing and a player that swings this way will dig toe deep divots. If this is the problem when you adjust your clubs more upright you may still take toe deep divots. The correct way to determine how much you need to adjust the lie would be to do a test from a lie board (S1632) using a Lie Angle Decal (TW1043P) on the sole. When you hit a shot from the board it will put a mark on the sole. We measure from the center of the mark back to the center of the face and for every 1/4" the center of your mark is from the center of the face you need to adjust the club 1 degree.

I am 4'8. When I cut down the factory shafts on my PING iron set, it changed the feel of the club. It's too stiff and flat now:(. I had to take 3 1/2" off my 6 iron for example to fit it to my body. How much can be cut while keeping a flex shaft?

Asked by: Angela
Anytime you cut a shaft shorter in length it gets stiffer in flex even if you only cut 1/2". Having to cut 3.5" is an extreme amount and if this is a ladies shaft flex there really is not much that can be done to get the shaft flex back to where it was before. 3.5" is equal to approximately 20 swingweight points and it would take 40 grams of clubhead weight added to the clubhead to get the swingweight back to where it was before you shortened them. Adding the weight would bring the shaft flex back closer to where it was before or at least adding some of the weight back to the clubhead could help. It might be worth a call to Ping to see if there is anything they could do with this set of irons to help you.

My trim code is IR6. So starting with the 3 iron, I cut in .5" increments from the tip ending up with 4" removed from my wedge and then finish off the length from the butt end, correct? What if I removed 3/8" instead? 

Asked by: ted100288
You are correct on the IR6 trimming. If you trim 3/8" increments instead of 1/2 inch increments, the shafts will simply play very slightly more flexible. In fact, probably not noticeable. 1/8" tip trim in a steel shaft is about 1/8 of a flex, generally.

Can I reshaft wedges (P, A or G, S, L) with the AXE XCaliber Graphite Irons Shaft?

Asked by: Max
It depends on which wedges you have and do they use a .370" parallel tip shaft or a .355" taper tip shaft. The AS0023 will fit the .370" parallel wedge models and the AS0028 will fit the .355" taper tip models. If tell us the manufacture and model of the wedges you have we should be able to tell you which shaft model you need.
