These are some of the shaft makers we support.
I am a direct dealer for AeroTech Golf Shafts distributed from Bellingham. Most professionals agree that these are some of the best graphite golf shafts made. I play 80 grams Steel Fiber shafts in my irons. I am not alone for on the PGA and Champions Tours some of the best known players playing Steel Fiber are Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker, and Fred Couples. SteelFiber shafts are the No. 1 graphite iron shafts on the PGA, Champions & LPGA Tours. In 2014, SteelFiber shafts delivered seven victories - THREE WINS on the PGA Tour, TWO WINS on the Champions Tour and TWO WINS on the LPGA Tour - as well as dozens of Top 10 finishes.
Steel or Graphite?
- We have been asked and helped to answered this question many times. It all comes down to the players decision. The correct type of shaft depends on the player and his/her goals, body strength, clubhead acceleration, clubhead speed, and appearance. First, let us talk about some misconceptions.
- The flex of a golf shaft is not dependent upon material. The most flexible shaft I ever hit was made of Steel.
- Not all Graphite shafts are the same weight and not all Steel shafts are the same weight either. When I take a player through a custom fitting, I have them swing up to seven different weight shafts.
- Normally Graphite shafts are lighter than Steel, but a Tour weight Graphite shaft is 110 grams which is heaver in weight than a light weight Steel shaft.
- Weight: The range for a Steel shaft is 85 - 115 grams and the Graphite shaft is 50 - 110 grams.
- Vibration Reduction: Graphite allows less vibrations to reach the player's hands and arms. True Temper has a product called SensiCore which has a core in the steel shaft that also reduces vibrations.
- Cost: Normally a steel shaft cost less, but that was until Project X and some KBS Products
