True Temper Elevate 95 Vs True Temper Dynamic Gold 95 Shaft Comparison

True Temper Elevate 95 Vs True Temper Dynamic Gold 95 Shaft

Choosing between lightweight steel iron shafts is very difficult.

But to help you make the right choice for your game, I tested the True Temper Elevate 95 against the True Temper Dynamic Gold 95.

True Temper Elevate 95 Shaft Overview

“The Elevate 95 comes in regular (93 grams) and stiff (94 grams) flex.”

I was amazed at how well the Elevate 95 damped vibration. Usually, steel shafts at this weight point let you feel all the shock of a mis-hit or even a flush shot.

But the Elevate 95 seems to absorb shock through the entire shaft to spare you the jolt in your hands.

The kick point is low and the launch is unapologetically high. So much so that it can’t be worked down.

I wasn’t thrilled with the dispersion though: 9.2 yards on average. The Elevate 95 is fast; but it’s also a bit erratic.

Dynamic Gold 95 Overview

True Temper Dynamic Gold 95 Shaft

“The Dynamic Gold 95 comes in regular (96 grams) and stiff (97 grams) flex.”

In my opinion, the DG 95 does a much better job striking a balance between lightweight steel and control.

The dispersion shrunk to about 7.5 yards and the kick point was a bit higher to leave the window open for working the ball down a bit.

The DG 95 felt just as fast on the downswing as the Elevate 95; but with a better sense of stability through transition.

“The clear winner in this comparison is the True Temper Dynamic Gold 95. It offers more control and just as much acceleration as the Elevate 95.”
