Yes, you can verify this by doing frequency analysis on the club.

It's a step backwards for AMs too....
Graphite shafts are much better, but it's really hard to beat the $18 price for a steel shaft versus $200-$1700 for a graphite shaft. The Proforce shafts are kind of interesting, but still over $80.
If the OP liked the feel of steel shafts with an old style club head, the new style club heads should work with steel shafts too.
Plus it's hard to beat the jewelry chrome finish on the steel shafts. Tougher too.
