I was lucky enough to win a spot at Shaft Up #1 this year, so I kinda went graphite by default. I'm not sure if/when I would've given them a fair shake otherwise, but I'm extremely grateful that luck was on my side and I was exposed to the awesomeness of graphite in general, and the UST Recoil 110s specifically. Since then I've been talking up graphite iron shafts to all of my playing partners.
Yes, played them for a couple years and enjoyed them. Originally tried them because of elbow pain, but figured I would get fit into them during my most recent fitting. I would definitely play them in the future.
I am currently using graphite iron shafts. I was hoping that the lighter weight would give me a boost in swing speed for a little more distance. I've only had them in the bag for about 6-7 rounds so I'm not fully adjusted yet but so far they're okay. Hopefully once I've used them a little more I'll start to get more of a feel for them.
I have graphite regular flex Recoils in my older set of Big Bertha's that I am currently playing. And I have Project X graphite shafts in my Hot Metals, but they are senior flex and my swing just doesn't pair up with them now. I really enjoy the way the graphite shafts feel compared to steel. Seems to have less vibration in graphite. I may res-shaft my Hot Metals if I can find a good deal on some graphite shafts.
I did to try and combat some elbow issues I was having. It did lessen the impact on my joints but I became far less consistent with my distance control so I decided to go back. I would try them again if I were fit into them this time.
i have gamed steelfiber, and i have tested recoil, accra and catalyst but ultimately went a different direction. i'm not opposed to it at all, as long as the fit works. honestly it makes a lot of sense for my delivery, just always found slightly better results with steel.
Yes, and still play with them 9 times out of 10. I was fit into a set of Steel Fiber i110s in order to get a lower trajectory, but even though my swing has changed, and I now like a higher ball flight, the graphite shafts are fantastic.
I have a set of s400s in my other rotational irons, and there's definitely a difference in weight, but I don't really see much different in the way I play. For that reason, I will probably seriously consider graphite shafts for all sets going forward.
I have tried them a couple of times in the past 10 years - once in a set of Ping G10s and again in a set of Wilson C300s. I wasn't fit for either set. Both felt good, but once my swing began to improve a bit, I switched to steel and I prefer it at the moment. Maybe a properly fit, heavier graphite shaft would challenge my KBS steel shafts, but it would be difficult.
I had graphite in my DCIs that I played from 1994 to 2011. At first, I didn't like them but, within a couple of weeks, I was a fan. I switched back to steel in the next irons and stuck with steel when I was fitted this Spring.
Graphite will likely be in my next set of irons due to arthritis in my hands.
The only club in my bag that doesn't have a graphite shaft is my putter. Went graphite for the first time with my current irons, and it was simply a "feel" issue. I tried all the irons I was interested in with steel and graphite, and I preferred the graphite shafts in all of them.
