A New Spin on Old Tradition     

  • Shaft Length
    Once the shaft is installed, you must then determine the proper length. This is just as important as flex, torque or anything else to do with the shaft.
  • How to Determine Length
    To determine the length of your club, stand at attention and have someone measure from the crease where your wrist and hand meet to the floor. Do this with both hands and take an average.

  • If you measure:
  • - 29 to 32 inches, your irons should be based on a 5-iron of 37 inches
  • - 33-34 inches, your irons should be based on a 5-iron of 37 1/2 inches
  • - 35-36 inches, your irons should be based on a 5-iron of 38 inches
  • - 37-38 inches, your irons should be based on a 5-iron of 38 1/2 inches
  • - 39-40 inches, your irons should be based on a 5-iron of 39 inches
  • - 41 or more inches, your irons should be based on a 5-iron of 39 1/2 inches

  • STEEL OR GRAPHITE
  • Should you go with steel shafts or graphite shafts? What are the differences between the two? Is one type of shaft better for you than another?
  • These are questions that many newcomers to golf - and even many golfers who have played for years - have in mind when they go shopping for a new set of clubs.
  • In the "old days," the general feeling was that recreational golfers, mid- and high-handicappers, should use graphite, while the better players, low-handicappers, would stick with steel.
