Yes, graphite shafts are more flexible than steel ones and require a slower swing speed to get the ball airborne. They are aimed at all players in drivers, woods and hybrids, but only at seniors, women and juniors in irons.

What are the major differences between men's and women's golf clubs?

Women's clubs tend to be about 1 inch shorter. The shafts also should be a little more flexible. Grips might be a little thinner, too. Other than that, it's pretty much just cosmetics. On average, women probably should use a higher lofted driver, say 13 degrees or so, because with a slower swing speed more distance can be generated with higher loft. (Probably most men should, too, but that's another argument.)Answer by FutureLPGAgolferThe major differences from men's and women's golf clubs is that women's golf clubs are more flexible and men's golf clubs are more stiff. The grips are thinner for women and the grips are bigger for men. Women's clubs are lighter which helps generate speed and men's golf clubs are heavier which makes a hard impact on the ball. Women and men should have a lofted driver of 11 degrees. Women can be just as fast as men, probably even faster because they are more flexible to have a full body rotation. I use 11 degrees and I go 210 yards. And the ball goes very high with a 11 degrees but still good enough to go as far as possible.

What is the difference between men's and women's golf clubs?

As a general rule, women's clubs are shorter, lighter, and have more flexible shafts then men's clubs. Sometimes the color of the grips (powder blue, etc.) or the model name (Annika Sorenstam, etc.) may give it away. However, anyone can have clubs custom made to any length, weight and shaft flex so the general rule is just that...general. GOLF IS MAD:)
