Talkin' Golf Club Shafts



With the proliferation of golf shafts, both in composite and steel, there's never been a better time to let shaft companies speak their mind. We recently assembled a few questions for several shaft equipment companies to answer, all to help get a better idea of the personality and perspective various companies have. What you're about to read may very well alter your decision on which shafts to include in your next clubs.

GOLF TIPS: What have been the most significant changes to graphite shafts in the past three years?

Tim Gillis, director of sales at Miyazaki Golf:

But don't assume that a shaft weighs what it says in the logo. There are shafts on the market and in current ad campaigns that weigh significantly more than the misleading number shown in the shaft name/logo. Additionally, shaft balance points have been moving up the shafts (toward the grip end) to accommodate the heavier driver heads and longer assembled club lengths that are becoming commonplace. These higher balance points allow club companies to maintain acceptable swing weights in longer, heavier-headed clubs.

Bryan Nicholson, certified PGA professional and chairman of the nVentix Golf advisory board
: Much of the golf industry has been focused on developing longer and lighter shafts in the pursuit of distance. Un...
