There is no correct answer, it is completely down to personal preference. Rescue clubs are designed to get the ball up in the air, this can be greatly helped by a graphite shaft. Some people believe that if you have a graphite shaft on a rescue club the head feels to heavy. However, you should either get custom fit and see which one is best for your game, or just take both out onto the course and see which one you prefer.

What is the difference between graphite and steel clubs?

Graphite clubs shafts "transmit fewer vibrations up the shaft to the golfer's hands than do steel shafts" as compared to steel clubs shaft are less expensive and they are more durable than graphite. As Kelley states "Quality graphite shafts will last as long as you do so long as they are not chipped, cracked, or the laminate-seal is not peeling. Steel shafts will last forever so long as they are not bent, rusted or pitted" (Kelley). Graphite clubs are lighter compare to steel clubs. Source: Kelley, Brent.

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


What is the best graphite shaft manufactured?

If you are looking to fit a new graphite shaft to your club, I would say it doesn't matter which graphite shaft is the best but it is which one is best for you. Either a Grafalloy or Mitsubishi shaft, but they can be quite expensive.


Do you hit a graphite-shaft golf club differently from a steel-shafted one?

If this question refers to modern graphite shafted golf clubs as opposed to the older steel shafted golf, some golfers hit graphite clubs differently than steel clubs because graphite shafts have more flexibility than seel ones. So they are a bit whippy if the golfer is strong enough to swing that hard. Near the bottom of the swing, a graphite club will have a curve to it so the club snaps a bit into the ball. That must be taken into account when striking the ball. Personally though, I do not hit graphite clubs differently than steel clubs as I hit both equally as bad.

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.
