    What do you mean 'you went to fat shafts'?
    Wilson Deep Red II with the so-called fat shaft. Reduces vibration when hitting.

      For a completely different perspective, I developed very bad golfer's elbow a few years back.

      After month's of battling, it turned out the source of the elbow pain was pushing a clic gear. I stopped doing this, the pain went away.

      From time to time I break out the clic gear, basically when I don't want to use the remote control buggy in a storm and the pain comes back.

        Iíve been using Rifle 5.0ís for nearly 10 years because I always liked softer shafts in my irons and never had a problem. I went to a new set of irons with stiff steel shafts this year - admittedly Iíve also played the most golf Iíve played in the last 10 years - but Iíve developed horrible golfers elbow. Iím a lefty and itís the inside of my left elbow...just a horrible burning pain.

        I just dropped off my irons for reshaft with graphiteís today...Recoil 110g that Iíve previously tried and liked - - and hoping it helps once Iím able to golf again.

          I found that the weight of shaft can be a major factor. I switched to a Nippon Zelos 7 shaft which is less than 80 grams. It comes in stiff flex and gives you a high launch. Itís a steel shaft. I found that heavier shafts made me try too hard on my downswing, causing me to overuse my right forearm ( and elbow).
          The other thing thatís helping me is an elbow brace made by Bauerfeind. Itís called Epitrain. Itís an elasticize sleeve brace with small pads that absorb the shock to the tendons on the inside and outside of your elbow. I used it going through a TXG fitting session where I hit balls for about 1 1/2 hours. It really works well.
          Hope this is helpful.
