Differently-Weighted Heads on 714 AP1s?

    Sorry if this question has already been addressed, but I was unable to find an answer when searching these forums.

    Last year, I purchased a set (4-GW) of 714 AP1s with SteelFiber i110cw shafts to address a recent rotator cuff injury. These irons were EXACTLY what my game needed in terms of improved feedback and performance, and much less shoulder pain.

    To fill out the set, I purchased a matching 52-degree GW, but with the stock Kuro Kage shaft instead of a SteelFiber. To my surprise, this wedge swingweighted quite similarly to the 48-degree wedge in my current set (D1.2 vs. D0.5). Given the different weights of the shafts, I expected the swingweights to be quite different.

    I know a little bit about how the balance point in the shaft can affect the swingweight, and I know that the Kuro Kage is a "low balance" shaft (says so right on the shaft :)), so am I safe in assuming that the SteelFiber is a "high balance" shaft, so to speak, and this balance point is more important in affecting swingweight than the gram weight of the cut shaft?

    Or, did Titleist have differently-weighted heads available in the 714 AP1s to achieve certain swingweights?

    Thanks for the help.

    Titleist has different weighted heads to allow sets to come out with similar swing weights....pretty cool!
