Do custom golf shafts make a difference?
Bottom line, differences exist. It could be torque, slight changes in overall weight or how the shaft is designed to launch/spin. I think everyone can agree these are important aspects. If you are playing a “made for” shaft, it’s worth testing out the aftermarket version to see if noticeable variances exist.
Does expensive driver shaft make a difference?
It was the same length and the same flex. When I was holding the two shafts side by side I couldn’t really feel much of a difference but the expensive shaft was actually a little bit heavier (which I do prefer). It’s probably not enough to even notice or impact your game for the majority of average players.
Are custom iron shafts worth it?
The simple answer is yes, it’s definitely worth getting custom fit golf clubs. If you were to look at the back of a typical set of off the shelf clubs, they would usually have various markings on them as well as loft and lie angles.
Does changing the shaft matter in golf?
The fact of the matter is that the shaft has a direct and quantifiable influence on how the club moves through the swing and into impact. Changing the shaft can and often will change impact variables like lead deflection (often manifested as impact loft), toe down, and closure rate.
Is there a big difference between regular and stiff flex?
What’s the difference between regular and stiff shafts? A stiff shaft is firmer and harder to bend than a regular shaft, and so more often than not, they’re also heavier in weight. As a rough rule of thumb, the more speed you generate, the stiffer your shafts should be.
What happens if shaft is not stiff enough?
When the shaft is too stiff, you won’t be able to get enough spin on the ball, causing it to come out very low, and look like it’s falling out of the sky. If it’s too stiff, your shot shape will be from left to right (slice), the clubhead won’t be able to return to square because the shaft is too stiff.
Does 10 grams make a difference in golf shaft?
10 grams may not sound like a big deal, but during the golf swing, it can make a big difference. This weight can make a big difference to feel, clubhead speed and dispersion (the accuracy of your drives).
Do shafts matter on drivers?
The heavier a shaft is, the more likely it is that your golf ball will fly low and with less spin. If it’s lighter, the ball will tend to fly higher and spin more. As Briand explains, the weight of a shaft has less impact on swing speed than golfers think, but that lighter shafts could increase the rate of closure.
How much difference do shafts make?
Shafts can range anywhere from 40 to 135 grams. Typically the rule of thumb is that a golfer with a slower swing speed will benefit from using a lighter shaft, and you would add weight as swing speed increases. As you might expect at this point, there are always exceptions.
Should I custom fit my driver?
Length: A custom fitting is important when determining the correct length of your driver shaft. Having the proper shaft length can help you achieve consistent contact and lead to more distance off your drives.

Do clubs make a difference in golf?
The quality of golf clubs does make a difference, but the change only increases with your skill level. A pro would not play as well with lower quality off-shelf Golf Clubs, but the difference between cheap good quality clubs and more expensive branded clubs for an amateur is not significant.
Do golf shafts weaken over time?
Yes, especially on wedges, where you’re hitting out of the sand. So those should be replaced conservatively every three years, more often the more you play. That happens with iron grooves, too, but on a much longer timeline.
Are Aldila shafts good?
Much smoother and easier to load. It was a stiff flex like I normally play, but just felt really good. On the tee box I found this shaft hit higher than the stock shaft, but spin was still about the same. While I didn’t have an accuracy problem with the stock shaft, the Blue was just a little tighter yet.
