I purchased the R9 irons with the stock graphite shaft about 5 months ago. In my opinion, they are much more forgiving across the entire face than the R9 irons are.

Both irons had a higher trajectory than my gamer 7 iron. You mentioned the high trajectories you were getting from the long irons; how were the trajectories across the set?
