Irons Golf – Determining The Material Of The Shaft

Irons golf clubs are a significant purchase in golf shop. After all, when you look inside someone’s golf bag, this is the type of club you will see the most. One of the vital factors you need to consider when buying golf irons is the material the shaft has been made from. Read on to discover the options you have at your disposal.

You generally have three options to choose from when it comes to the material of the shaft: steel, graphite and multi-material shafts. Let’s take a look at each one in further detail. Firstly, we have steel shafts, which are the most common. Steel is heavier and stronger than other materials, and thus it is more accurate and consistent because it creates less flex. Steel is also a popular choice because it offers a high level of durability and it is not expensive to purchase. Graphite shafts are not as popular, yet there are still golfers who prefer their irons to have a graphite shaft because it gives them the ability to unlock more distance in their game, as they can increase swing speed due to the flexible and lightweight nature of this material. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that this comes at a trade-off: namely an inconsistent feel. Finally, we have shaft that is made from different materials: for instance, graphite and steel are combined. These shafts are less common, and they usually feature a graphite tip with the vast majority being made from steel.
