Am thinking of reshafting my irons with FM Precision Rifles.  From what
I've read, they're fairly popular.  Any comments on the shafts?

Think about why you want them, and what you expect to get from them.
Don't just get them because "they're fairly popular"; that's a truly
silly reason.

If you have a good reason to go with them, be warned of the following in
choosing a flex:
        Most catalogs suggest that "R" is the 5.5 and "S" is the 6.5.  If you
believe this, you'll wind up with telephone poles instead of shafts.  The
Rifles play anywhere from a half flex to a full flex stiffer than these
"nominal" flexes, so order your shaft accordingly.

Hope this helps.

I recently reshafted my Cobra Tour Irons with a 6.0 Rifle shaft.  Since I
went 1 inch over standard I was a little afraid to going too soft since
I've always played stiff shafts.

The clubs had Apollo stiff shafts in them which I could never get
comfortable with.  It was kind of like hitting a concrete block with a
2x4.  

I am very happy with the Rifles.  Less or no vibration on offcenter hits
and I got back 5 or 6 yards in distance and hit the ball higher.  

I think the key here is "Quality".  Thats what you pay for in the more
expensive shafts and ususally what you get.   The results may have no
effect on your score but atleast you are comfortable with the club in
your hands.

They are a very good feeling set of shafts, with a slightly soft feel when
you get into the hitting area. Howevre, they're like every other steel
shaft with little torque and they are standard weight steel, so they are
nothing revolutionary. I liked the feel of them, and that's probably most
important.
