We Offer a Larger Selection of Golf Club Shafts than Any of the Big Retailers or Online Sellers.
Choosing a golf shaft may be the most important task to improve the performance of a specific club including the putter. Shafts are made of graphite, graphite combinations, and different configurations of steel. When considering a new golf shaft – most shaft selection guides are developed based upon center hit data. The basic presumption is that every golfer’s swing stroke results in a dead center hit. However, the vast majority all amateur golfers have swing variations ranging from an open or close face hit – to a swing path either outside-in or inside-out. We strongly recommend that a golfer take into consideration the degree of variations in his or her swing in making a shaft selection. If the swing variations are significant, a lower torque, stiffer flex, or even heavier weight may provide the extra stability needed to bring the ball back in play.
In general, the lighter the shaft weight, the more active the shaft will be when in swing motion. Therefore, everything being equal – with an on-center hit – a lighter shaft will provide longer distance than a heavier shaft. A more active shaft will behave like a high compression golf ball. An on-center hit will go farther, and an off-center hit will be farther off the target. Hence, the lighter shaft weight a golfer uses, a lower tip torque should also be considered.
The shaft term “Flex” refers to the ability of a golf shaft to bend as forces are applied to it during the golf swing. Those forces are generated by the type of swing that you have – fast, slow, smooth, or jerky. There are five generally used ratings for shaft flex from firm to loose and represented by the letters X, S, R, A and L: Extra Stiff (X), Stiff (S), Regular (R), Senior (A), and Ladies (L). The letter “A” is used for Senior because this flex was originally denoted as “amateur”). Now, different shaft manufacturers will have the same letter designation, but their specs may differ to some degree amongst the variations.
We stock a set amount of shafts, but can order any of the graphite or steel shafts listed below and have them in stock at our workshop within 48 hours.
