There are so many shafts out there. What are a few current shafts that I should be checking out for an extra stiff shaft for a 3 wood? Not for me but for my son.
Are there a few shafts that really stand out currently?
Thanks in advance.
No. Its much more important that he get the one that is right for him. Take him to any place he can get fit or hit a bunch of clubs and make him try every shaft they have. Don't pay attention to the brand of the head; just find a shaft that works for him.
Probably because the sales person is trying to sell you the most expensive shaft. You don't have to buy it. You simply buy your favorite shaft at the price point you want. It's more about finding the right weight, flex, kick-point etc. in your price range.
Oh, yes, I see, Hawaii. That IS tough. Pooooor 808hacker, he lives in paradise.
Even if there is not a wide selection, I think he's still better off going there to see what they have. Again, you don't have to buy anything. I just think you're going to do better having him swing a few, even if there are limited choices, than trying to do it on the blind based upon what other people like.
