Graphite shafts can be installed on high-trajectory drivers and they work best for women golfers and seniors. The graphite is very whippy and as the club comes forward into the hitting zone, the shaft will have a lot of give as it is prepared to strike the ball. The combination of the graphite shaft with the high-trajectory head will send the ball soaring into the air and that's the results the golfer wants to see.
Combination Graphite-Steel Shaft
For stronger women golfers and most medium-handicap men players, a shaft made from a combination of steel and graphite works best. While it is not as whippy as the graphite shaft, the torque supplied by the golfer will get the club head into an excellent launch position and allow the golfer to hit the ball high in the air. The key is taking an athletic stance and getting your hips through the hitting zone before your bring high-trajectory driver head through.
Steel shafts are used by a majority of players. When playing with a high-trajectory driver, graphite or a steel-graphite combination works best. However, with larger players who create most of their own torque with their swing, steel shafts can be the right choice. It takes more strength for the shaft to get into the launch position, but a bigger player with a more forceful swing can do it and make the high-trajectory driver produce the intended results.
