Well it can be, but only slightly, you wouldn't be able to make a stiff into a regular etc.
If you shortened a club, the shaft would become stiffer, and if you lengthened a club the shaft would become more regular, but you only make a 1-2 inch change to the shaft.
What it does do however is change the swing weight. A lengthened shaft make the head lighter, and a shortened shaft makes the head heavier. All pro players like to have the swing weight the same for all their clubs. Apparently Tiger Woods can tell the swing weight just by swinging the club.
A stiff flex is the flex of the shaft usually for swing speeds between 90 and 105 mph.
Hi....I have played Ping clubs for serveral years..and yes the Ping soft regular shaft is equivilant to the senior shaft or A flex of many shaft designations.
A Golf shaft which is too stiff will cause a slice. This is because the shaft is too stiff for you to square the club face at impact. You can get custom fit to see which flex is best for you, as a shaft which is not fitted correctly can affect your game.

A senior flex shaft is a very flexible lightweight golf shaft which is ideal for senior golfers. They usually have a low kick point which is ideal to get the ball in the air with the slower swing speeds of a senior golfer.
Currently Fujikura Blur shaft for 2011 is a mere 47g for their R2 flex model.
Different manufacturer's of golf clubs have different names for shafts of the same specs. RL is equivalent to; A flex, L Flex ( Light flex not Ladies) and the more commonly known seniors flex. These shafts are designed for a lower clubhead speed.
The companies that make shafts for golf clubs will have a specification listed on the shaft itself such as "Stiff" of "Juniors". We call it "Flex". The flex standard may be the same on a graphite or steel shaft made by one company and nearly the same as made by another company. It is kind of like sizes for cloths. Both graphite and steel shafts come in "Stiff" flex. Companies may use the word "Mens" in place of "Stiff" or "Juniors" in place of a "not so stiff" shaft. Consult with your local Golf Coach or Golf Professional and they can explain more about the flex in a shaft or other things like "kick points" in a shaft.
I assume you are talking about Project X golf shafts. A Project X shaft with a 6.5 flex is the equivilent of a stiff shaft.
Stiff shafts are for people with 65mph+ swings
It means the shaft is flexed 4.26 inches from its original created spot. A person who gets this kind of shaft is someone who has a flatter golf swing.
