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.
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
Yes they do.
I like them. The good thing about all the shafts Ping use, is that they have been specially selected to compliment the heads of the club giving the player the best from all their clubs. The AWT steel shafts are brilliant.
The Nike Pro Combo OS are made of forged carbon steel. Nike Speed Step Steel constant-weight shafts are made from soft, forged 1030 carbon steel that gives an excellent feel transmission. This high strength steel alloy creates a shaft that is 30% lighter than traditional steel shafts. The lightweight and soft-tip shafts provide for higher ball flight and greater distances.
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.
Young children should really use graphite shafts, they help them get the ball in the air easier and they are a lot lighter than the steel ones. Any clubs I have seen designed specifically for children have graphite shafts. When they get a bit older and stronger say 13-14 they may be able to move on to steel, because their swing speed will have increased and they are a lot stronger. Girls however tend to stay with graphite as they have slower swing speeds and the graphite shafts help get the ball in the air.
It depends on the butt size of the steel club and how wide the graphite shaft butt is. It is not really ideal to mix the composition of shafts in this way as it will drastically affect the swing weight. Yes it is true there are matrix shafts which have steel and graphite but these have been specifically designed for their purpose and work well. You would be best going and getting steel shaft extensions they are cheap enough.
86 multiplied by 65 is 5,590.
Yes, graphite shafts are far superior to steel shafts in terms of distance.
Metal golf shafts are made of steel.
Steel became popular in the late 1930's as the popularity increased.Hickory is easily broken,hard to master and more expensive then steel thus leading to the popularity of steel
no, like almost every porfessional golfer he has steel shafts. the exact model is true temper dynamic gold probably X100 (extra stiff)
