What kind of shaft do you find works best? I can't really decide what works best for me, as it doesn't really seem to matter what I use. Sometimes I'll use one kind of shaft and it will work well, so I'll start using that, but then the next time I use it I have a horrible game, so I start switching around again

In the end, I still suck :)

I tend to change shaft's a lot, i try to stick to one, but i get tired. Try to find one that really works, some stores let you test it for a day or two.

Most people can't even tell the difference between shafts. A bad golfer isn't in tune with his equipment to begin with, and a good golfer will subconsiously make it work. :dunno:

Never really though about it. I just use what ever I have on hand. I don't have a large budget to go out and buy top of the line shafts and clubs. So I just use what ever I can afford.

I use graphite exclusively now. I need to get more speed, so I find graphite works for me in extending my drives while also cutting down on the amount of vibration I get when I hit the ball.

I'd be interested in people's opinion on titanium shafts. I'd like to give one a try, but since I've now finally got a set of clubs together that works pretty well for me, I'm reluctant to switch anything. Still, I'm game to try anything once :)

I switched to a titanium driver shaft about 12 months ago after many sorties into the graphite field. Guess like most was looking for a few more yards on the right fairway. Well I got straighter but no longer, the experience showed I could have achieved what I got with the titanium shaft by firming up the graphite. Now I am back with graphite in my TaylorMade R5 Neutral but with an Accuflex Pro LD Regular shaft at 57 grams 3.5 torque and mid bend which suits my average 86 mph swingspeed fine. I also switched to Titleist SoLo balls and I am now approx 15/20 yards longer and straighter. At 74 years 'young' my handicap has dropped from 14 to 12 in the few months since the change.
