This shaft is generally preferred by stronger players that are looking to maintain the overall effort it takes to swing their steel shafted irons but wants to benefit from the vibration dampening characteristics of a composite shaft. We are able to maintain the playability of the 125 gram shaft by minimizing the wall thickness with the use of metal to increase weight instead of adding more graphite. Because graphite is 1/5th the weight of steel it would take 5 times the amount of graphite material for the same weight increase which increases wall thickness and gives the shaft a “boardy” feel. The weights of all of our SteelFiber iron shafts are manipulated using metal and graphite instead of just graphite. This is just one of the things that set the playability of the SteelFiber shafts apart from all its competitors.
Players looking to go a little bit lighter than the typical steel shafted irons choose the SteelFiber i110 so they can pick up some yardage while maintaining a low penetrating ball flight and avoid changing the overall feel they are accustomed to from playing steel shafts. The player will also take advantage of the reduced vibrations of a composite shaft resulting in fewer injuries and less fatigue during the round.
The SteelFiber i95 is a great transition into a lighter weight iron shaft without going too light and substantially changing the feel of the club during the swing. The 95 gram weight allows the player to see some good improvement in distance while still maintaining pinpoint accuracy and incredibly consistent distance control. If a player has been losing distance in their steel shafted irons but still wants to maintain every bit of consistency the i95 is a great choice.
Our number one selling SteelFiber iron shaft, the i80, gives a player all of the benefits of a 100% graphite shaft but with remarkable control and consistency. Whether a player is looking to get back the valuable yardage they lost over the years or has been playing a 100% graphite shaft that is too light and lost their accuracy the SteelFiber i80 can really do it all.
The lightest SteelFiber shaft in our lineup is a great shaft for those slower swing speed players looking to gain as much yardage as possible. This shaft is offered in a wide range of flexes and can hold up to even the most demanding swings. You won’t find a more stable 75 gram iron shaft anywhere. If a player is looking for all of the swing speed they can get or they’re looking to play the golf club substantially over length and want to maintain a reasonable swing weight the i70 is the right choice.
