Ping U44 graphite shafs are A flex senior shafts
I would recommend graphite shafts for kids. Kids have slower swing speeds, graphite shafts are more flexible and give a higher launch than steel, and graphite shafts are a lot lighter.
It depends. Generally steel shafts are used for irons and wedges whereas graphite shafts are used for woods and hybrids. If you have a slow swing speed or struggle to get the ball in the air, graphite shafts are ideal. Graphite shafts are ideal for women, juniours and seniors.
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
Callaway clubs differ from other clubs because they have bore through shafts. These can be difficult to put in, so you should really get your local pro or clubfitter to replace them.
Callaway Big Bertha irons are a line of golf clubs. These clubs are available with either graphite or steel shafts. They tend to be great for players who have high handicaps and are very forgiving and thus mask bad swings well.
Some golf clubs are made out of graphite. Golfers prefer graphite shafts rather than steel shafts because the ones made out of graphite are lighter. This leads to further shots and more yards.
True Temper makes their steel shafts now, called Uniflex. Previously they were made by Royal Precision and were called Constant Weight Series. One shaft is stepped and the other stepless.
For irons, steel shafts are better- unless you struggle to get the ball off the ground, in which case you should use graphite. Steel shafts are used for irons because graphite shafts are quite expensive and iron heads are relatively heavy- steel shafts are also heavy and even out the swing weight. Graphite is used for woods and hybrids because their heads are light and you can get the most distance from them.
Yes, graphite shafts are far superior to steel shafts in terms of distance.
