Golf is a sport like all other sports and no one is threatened to become a professional within a short timespan or at all. However, when you get interested in a particular sport you definitely spend a lot of time reading about it and finding where to get the best equipment.
Similarly, golfers tend to go straight to the store shelf and select golf clubs and shafts right there. This is not the right idea, especially for someone who is new to the sport. When choosing Cumberland Golf club shafts you have a lot of aspects to check. Here are a few tips that will help you choose the right shaft.
- The optimum shaft should have exact measurements both in stiffness, length, weight, kick, material, tip etc.
- Most of the shaft and club manufacturers collaborate with major companies and produce specific models like UST golf shafts that have specially designed irons and woods and hybrid drivers.
- Shafts are manufactured using the basic metal or the regular graphite. However, when buying a shaft one has to test the shaft with the club and see whether they match or you will end up with a shaft and a club that do not match. This will cause great difficulty in taking a swing and trying to get the ball in the air. Don't just choose a club after testing with a few swings in the store. Take demo days out with the manufacturer, compare with other brands by hitting the ball and checking the ball's trajectory.
- Fitting is another aspect – short swings require stiff tips and long swings require stiff butt with a soft tip.
