For beginners I would recommend a regular shaft in your driver, these are aimed at golfers with slower swing speeds, as you progress through the game you may want to go to stiff or even extra stiff.

What does intermediate flex mean for golf drivers?

Means the stiffness of the shaft. It is for slower swing speeds. However I tend to reverse that thinking. Rather than matching a shaft flex to benefit a swing speed I match shafts to prevent damage to a swing. Anyone can swing a stiff flex and suffer no real ill effects. The worst that can happen is that you are accurate and maybe a bit shorter (not much) However not everyone can use a whippy shaft flex. The balls will be sprayed all over the place. I bought a Driver on ebay that had an intermediate flex. I sprayed balls to the right and even got a slice back that I had not seen in years. After a few trips on the course it was enough of the intermediate flex. I removed it today and replaced it with a regular flex.

What is the difference between regular flex and stiff flex iron shafts?

The flex of a shaft can be varied depending on the needs of the golfer. Stronger golfers tend to swing faster and therefore need a stiffer shaft to keep the club head from lagging too far behind. Seniors and ladies can benefit from a more flexible shaft that helps compensate for the slower swing speed. Shaft flex is important for woods and the longer irons, but has less effect on the shorter irons. Any good golf pro can analyze your swing and tell you what degree of shaft flex you need. Good luck.

Will a stiff graphite shaft be similar to a steel shaft?

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.
