Should you use a Graphite or steel shaft in rescue clubs?

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.

Will mixing graphite and steel shafts affect your golf game?

AnswerYes, unless you're a pro. A hobbyist does not have the swing control necessary to adjust to the difference required for each shaft. The extra flex in a graphite shaft will require a different swing. Playing golf well requires good repetition of proper swings.You want graphite in your woods and perhaps in your Hybrids. Graphite in irons can be spooky as in sometimes the ball will go long and sometimes short. It is more difficult to control the distance with graphite iron shafts. Steel is more predictable.

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.
