Question: What happens if shaft is too stiff?

A shaft that is too stiff will absorb the force of the swing, which affects the timing of the transference of energy from the club to the ball at impact. The ball tends to fly lower, which impacts distance. As a note, the dynamic nature of a shafts stiffness and a players swing speed matter.

What happens if I use a stiff shaft?

If your golf shaft is too stiff and your swing speed is too slow, your well-struck shot will be limited on both carry distance and shot trajectory; a too-stiff golf shaft will most often lead to weak fades or slices.

Does shaft stiffness really matter?

Second, if softer shafts inherently produced longer shots, we would have seen the stiff flex produce more distance than the x-stiff. The idea that stiffer shafts are more accurate is busted. Our testing actually showed the opposite: the regular flex shaft was the most accurate of the group.
