Golf Club Shafts: Choosing Between Stiff & Regular, Manhattan, New York

If you're new to golf, the fact that golf clubs come in various styles beyond shaft size and face shape might come as a surprise. There are many different types of clubs available, and the shaft flex you choose will play a significant role in the way you swing and hit on the green. At New York City's award-winning retail golf store, New York Golf Center, you'll find every variation you could need.

When it comes to golf club shafts, one of the major distinctions is drawn between regular and stiff flex. This is an oft-overlooked element of club selection, so figuring out what works best for you could remarkably complement your overall game.

Regular vs. Stiff Flex


golf clubsThink of a regular flex shaft as the go-to golf club for those who hit mid to above-average range shots. The shortest hitters will want to go for the Ladies flex, which has the most bend. Those who tend to hit harder should opt for the subtle bend of the Senior flex. 


Another set of options opens up for long-range hitters. If you plan on sending your golf balls far enough to warrant the use of binoculars, a stiff flex is more appropriate. This type of club shaft is available in both stiff and extra-stiff, both of which offer a slight level of bend. 

If there's still an air of uncertainty around your ideal flex, New York Golf Center will offer expert assistance in the form of custom golf club fittings. A state-of-the-art indoor Trackman system will help you with your comprehensive fitting, so you'll leave with peace of mind knowing your clubs are the perfect match. Head to New York Golf Center's website for information on daily deals, and call them at (212) 564-0078 to speak with a knowledgeable staff member.
