I'm interestd in opinions of people who have played either (or both)
of these irons with the graphite shafts, and any thoughts on
comparisons between the two.

I would get the graphite "firm" in the X-12 or the S-90 in the LCG's.

I am about a 12 handicap.

I tried both and found that I liked the firm DCI Oversize+  best.  It was
funny that with plastic in hand I was going for the X-12sin firm
graphite.  So both my bank statement and swing appreicated my open mind
for not going with what the majority feels is the best, but rather with a
set that fit me best.

I have own then X-12's since they came out and love them. I like the M-10 '98
steel shafts.  I am 12 handicap also. I hit down on the ball which really
created a very high ball fight when I played my old Ping-Eye 2's. I want the
spin that hitting down creates but not the height. The M-10 '98 shafts has a
much higher kickpoint which does just that. If you have trouble getting ball up
I would say that you would want to consider another shaft or the Callaway
X-10's ( 97' BB Irons) with the origial M-10 shaft. Hope this helps! Callaway
has toll free number 1-800-228-2767, just ask for customer service departmetn.
I called last week adn they are very helpful and informative about thier
products and the preformance that your looking for.

FreemanBW,

Wow, that's really interesting. My golf instructor has been trying to
correct a problem with why I am launching the ball high with my Ping-Eye
2's. Technically, I seem to be doing things right, so my instructor has
checked the lie angle and all that at least twice now, thinking it's the
clubs.

Not that the equipment is the problem, your experience is just
interesting. Has the switch in clubs made a difference with your flight
path?

Eric

Do you think its the shafts that make the difference or the fact that the
Callaways are a stronger loft compared to regular irons?

The equipment is probably part of the problem. Most cavity backed clubs
hit the ball high by design... because most have a low center of
gravity. For most of us that is a desireable thing.

Dudley,

Thanks, I did not know that. I'm not all that familiar with the equipment
technology in golf as yet.
