Graphite and stainless steel are common materials used in the construction of golf shafts. Get fitted for the right shaft and you are still having issues, get a lesson. Steel shafts are generally heavier than graphite ones, but they are far more economical. I guess if switching to a steel shaft helps you mentally then go for it. This is an auction for a lot of 8 vintage Ben Hogan Golf H-2 steel original shafts.
I want to say i am probably getting another 40 to 50 yards now then i did 12 years ago. I just hit it for the first time last night at the house, and it feels really nice! Stiffer shafts impart less spin, all else being equal. Seems like even with stiff shaft as hard as my swing is it still bends alot on me and seems like when bends to much i am getting a open face on my club causing me to slice. From the tee or the fairway, discover your best game yet. It also reduces vibration at impact, helping reduce stress on hands, wrists and elbows-players with regular joint pain may opt for a graphite shaft. If it doesn't fit your swing, maybe you'd go off plane or miss the center with the stiffer one, but even your misses will be less spinny and result in more of a push than a slice in than the same miss with the soft one in general. Meanwhile, golfers with slower swing speeds benefit from a more flexible shaft.
You get to try it when, where, and how you want for two weeks before deciding if you want to buy it or not. This material is preferred by stronger players, as it is heavier, but delivers optimal feel on swing. This isn't 30 minutes on the range with range balls, a pro looking over your shoulder, and an awkward conversation at the end about whether you want it or not. I'll be heading to the range this weekend with it to see just what it will do. They have some light rust and wear from age and storage. It's not an apples to apples comparison.

What you need is a proper club fitting to find the proper shaft for your swing. The role of your golf shaft is to deliver the clubhead to the ball reliably and consistently. Originally Posted by onesome I'm not really sure you can do that with todays driver heads, as far as I know steel shafts are heavier and wouldn't that make the club head too light?

Make sure you have a club builder get the weights and stuff right because it could go too head light. Originally Posted by LovinItAll You don't think that, all else being equal, a stiffer shaft produces straighter shots? Every little thing changes something, and creates a huge chain reaction. What about shafts for your driver and fairway woods? The oversize heads 360-460cc that I have tried on steel shafts did not work out for me at all and I would recommend that this size of driver head be put on a graphite shaft. This is an auction for a MacGregor Golf Tourney Eye-O-Matic Tommy Armour 653T persimmon driver. When i was in college 12 years ago I use to play with a callaway steel head driver with steel shaft. All shafts are brand new and genuine in full raw length. There are softer wood shafts but generally they're obsoleted by graphite.
If you do love it, that's awesome! Unless they want a super heavy and stable shaft, they go graphite. This club is right handed and in good, used condition. Want to test out two different brands, or two different configurations? Buy golf clubs online from Monark Golf having sale on golf clubs and other top golf brands. But honestly, I would skip the steel shaft, and get a harrison shotmaker, or a Nunchuck. Now i know graphite shaft having that whip to it helps gain distance but now with the heads being more advanced then 12 years ago could i still get a good distance putting a steel shaft on my driver. That shaft is pretty stiff and low launching. Heavy graphite is easier to find and works fine.
Both are generalizations, but have truth to them. I know i can tell the difference between in the swing because the swing weight is different now. If you want one a little shorter for more accuracy, this can be easily done. When the clubhead hits the ball, the shaft twists. I'm not sure thats a big difference.
Built right, the swing weight shouldn't change. I'm playing in a tournament tomorrow and was tempted to bag it, but I'll wait until I can see what all I can do with it. The flex you choose is determined by your swing speed. If you don't love it, simply put it back in the box it came in, use the included prepaid return shipping label, and send it back to us. Wrong that steel is stiffer, or stiffer is straighter? It has a steel, stiff flex shaft and the genuine Kingwood Calf Neumann grip is in good shape.
No, there are plenty of steel shafts designed for todays drivers out there. You didnt hit the steel straighter because it was steel, you hit it straighter because the shaft was shorter. Sounds like you don't like the bigger driver heads. A custom-like shaft will provide the feel and performance you're looking for. Steel shafts typically range from 85 grams to 130 grams.
This is for the shaft set up only. This includes the Taylor Made Sleeve, Shaft and a pro velvet grip. Golf shafts are constructed with a variety of flexes and flex profiles to match an individual golfer's swing mechanics and level of strength. Utry gives you the freedom to test drive the club on your course, at your pace, with the golf ball you play. Steel shafts come in many flexes, from A senior all the way through R regular , R+ firm , S stiff , S+ stiff plus , and X extra stiff. If you're on plane and hit center, the stiffer shaft will curve less. Some produce higher ball flights for those wanting distance, while other keep the ball low for those looking for more roll.
