    AMT s300 break

    Was on the range this evening with less than a month old irons and my 5 iron shaft (AMT S300 black) snapped half way up the grip. Iíve never had that happen. My one else?

    Very strange imho , definitely not normal for a steel dg shaft unless it was rusted out from the inside out or just a crazy defect

    I'm a Golfsmith and the reasons I agreed all the questions is because that shaft is not cheaply made so it really is a fluke,I just can't see how it broke in the handle on a shot like that
