  • club shafts

    This past summer was my first full season of playing golf I have been using king cobra irons with stiff steel shafts I hit them pretty well.... But I recently aquired a complete set of clubs from my grandpa all with med.-stiff graphite shafts. I have been told that I have too much power for graphite shafts and if I shank the ball I will snap the shafts. How true is this? I would really like to try these new clubs! What should I do stick with what I know works or try these clubs out?

      Re: club shafts

      I always enjoy hearing these urban myths about graphite iron shafts, it is possible to break graphite iron shafts in much the same way as it is possible to break graphite shafts in woods. But its pretty unusual, I have a set of Cleveland Reg 588's that came originally with graphite shafts, I managed to break the 3 iron and 7 iron shafts right at the hosel. This was nothing to do with my huge strength (although it may have had some influence ) and everything to do with the shafts being dreadful quality OEM gear in the very early days of graphites popularity (ca 1990) I would imagine a set of graphite shafts fitted to a set of modern Cobra irons will be of much better quality. I think someone you have discussed this with has a similar experience and think that its a standard failing of graphite shafts in irons.

      As LowPost says, have at it!!
