Choosing the Right Golf Shafts

Understanding Golf Shaft Flex Can Help Improve Your Game

There are five general ratings for shaft flex: Extra Stiff, Stiff, Regular, Senior and Ladies, usually denoted by the letters X, S, R, A and L ("A" is used for Senior because this flex was originally called "amateur").

Having a flex that doesn't match the needs of your swing will result in the clubface being misaligned at impact, causing your shots to go off-target. Shaft flex can be determined by the type of swing that you have - fast or slow, smooth or jerky. As the shaft flexes throughout the swing, the position of the clubhead changes. At impact the club face must be square (perfectly straight) to get the most out of your shot. The wrong shaft flex for your swing, will result in your club face being off square at impact sending your ball in an unanticipated direction.

General Guide to Golf Shaft Selection

As a general rule, the distance you hit your driver can be a reference to the shaft flex needed.

  • Stiff Flex Shaft: If you carry you driver 250 yards or more
  • Regular Flex Shaft: 230-250 yards
  • Senior Flex Shaft: 200-230 yards
  • Ladies Flex Shaft: less than 200 yards.

    Only the biggest of the big hitters is ever going to need an Extra Stiff Shaft.

If you have a very smooth swing, you could benefit from a softer flex even if you swing very fast. A swing that gets jerky at the top - during transition into the downswing - will probably need a stiffer shaft.

If your drives go left, you might benefit from a stiffer flex; if your drives go right, you might benefit from a softer flex.
