Our choice of golf shafts matters almost as much as our choice of clubs. And yet, when it comes to choosing a golf club, the golf-shaft is the part that's usually overlooked. However, I, for one, think that the shaft deserves a lot more attention from golfers than they give it. That’s because the type of shaft I have can change everything - how far the ball will fly after I hit it, how straight it will soar and how high up in the air it will go. Our selection of golf shafts is one of the broadest in the world. But first, let’s look at a few of the different types of golf shafts out there. Choosing Your Golf Shafts
When it comes to golf shafts, personal preference is everything. That said, for a player to be able to choose the ideal golf shaft, they have to know what to look for first.
Golf shafts can be made from a two main materials. The consist of either steel or graphite. Steel is the strongest and sturdiest of these designs. Steel golf club shafts don’t have nearly as much torque as graphite shafts do. That means they twist less during a swing, which offers players better accuracy and control. Because of that, many players prefer that their iron shafts are steel. Graphite shafts are lighter and more comfortable to swing. However, they’re harder to control than steel golf club shafts. Graphite is most popular with Drivers and fairway shafts since it allows players to hit the ball further with less strain than if they used a stiffer shaft. They are also a top choice when building custom golf clubs, especially for drivers. Lastly, hybrid shafts try to offer players the best of both worlds by mixing elements from woods and irons together. They offer players a more natural swing of iron clubs while allowing for the forgiveness and distance found in woods
The most important property of all golf shafts is flex. Flex refers to how much a shaft bends at the time of a swing. It not only affects how far I can hit the ball but also how precisely. All golf shafts have a bit of flex to them, no matter how stiff they are. That’s why it’s essential for every player to choose a golf-shaft with the right amount of flex. Players who hit harder and have a fast swing will likely prefer golf club shafts with more flex. On the flip side, players who have a slower swing speed are generally more comfortable with a softer flex. Putter shafts, for obvious reasons, don’t have to have a lot of flex. However, all other golf club shafts types will usually have several flex options. Like flex, shaft torque matters quite a bit as well. Torque is how much a shaft will twist during swing and impact. While it can change the trajectory of a shot slightly (lower torque results in a less trajectory), where torque counts most is in the “feel” of a golf club. A club with a higher torque shaft will probably feel “softer,” while a lower torque shaft will give a harder or stiffer feel to it.
Remember, at the end of the day, no golf shaft is perfect for every player! We offer a wide selection of golf shafts - steel and graphite. In every type from drivers, fairways, hybrids, irons, wedges, and putter-shafts. We also have the most common flex options, L, A, R, S, X, and TX, as well as, a variety of not so common flexes. That means that no matter the player’s preference, they can find their ideal golf club shafts match here.
