I'm toying with the idea of building some Integra SoooLong hybrids in 24* and 21* with steel shafts.

I'm currently playing a set of Mizuno mx15's with the standard Reg Dynaflex shafts and may want something to go with these.

I see some manufacturers sell specific hybrid shafts and some don't. What are the pro's and cons of iron shafts over wood shafts for hybrids?

Also has anyone had any experience with Raven shafts?

Thanks,

Dean

My understanding is that 'hybrid' or 'long iron' shafts are very tip soft to help get the ball up - versus your irons shafts which may or may not be tip soft (and are most likely not as tip soft as a hybrid-specific shaft).
 
As for Raven shafts, I played their Platinum SL's for a while... but I couldn't tell you much about them.  They felt OK (but then again, I put vibration damping inserts in too).

SK, the true concept of building hybrids is to replace long irons with the same length and MOI-matched ones to the set of irons. I am wholeheartedly against wood-like hybrids or concepts to replace woods with hybrids. But it's just my opinion...
