Boron Graphite shafts are an Alloy of Carbon Fiber with Boron(Metal Element) Weaved along the side the carbon fiber strands. The best graphite Iron shafts ever made all have this in them, Some examples are the Yonex Tour irons that Phil Mickelson played, they had Yonex LTB-600 shafts(Low-torque-boron) and G.Loomis Tour shafts as well(G.Loomis also makes HIGH END fishing rods. Boron significantly improves the the tip and bend profile of the shaft and also makes it stronger, Boron significantly reduces the torque of a shaft, The Loomis tour's and Yonex ltb-600 shafts have lower torque numbers that TT Dynamic Gold steel shafts.

How is nuclear graphite manufactured?

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.

Whats the difference between a graphite and a steel shaft for golf clubs?

Graphite shafts transmit fewer vibrations up the shaft to the golfer's hands than do steel shafts. This might be good or bad, depending on your skill and your desire. You might want that added feedback that steel shafts offer - or you might be tired of your hands stinging so much on mis-hit shots. The biggest and by far most important difference between steel and graphite shafts is this: graphite shafts are lighter than steel shafts. So clubs that have graphite shafts will be lighter than otherwise identical clubs that have steel shafts. The difference in weight between graphite shafts and steel shafts will translate, for most golfers, into an additional 2-4 mph of swing speed with graphite. And that could mean an extra 6-12 yards of distance with a graphite shaft, compared to a steel shaft. Steel shafts are less expensive than graphite, so the same set of clubs will cost less with steel shafts than with graphite shafts. Steel shafts were once considered much more durable than graphite. That's not s

Can new graphite driver shafts be replaces with steel shafts?

Yes, they can. However steel shafts that are long enough to be a driver shaft are very uncommon, this is because they are so heavy and not as good as graphite ones. If you find a steel shaft that you would like put into your driver you will need to check the tip diameters are the same and your local pro or clubmaker should be able to do it for you easily.
