It all depends on your swing speed and tempo, graphite is normally for a slower swing speed so you get more flex out of your shafts on the down swing. Go to a golf shop and ask to get your swing critiqued, they should be able to tell you what type of shaft you'll need for your swing. Hope that was helpful In my opinion, use steel for everything except possibly the driver. Steel is a lot cheaper and a lot more durable than graphite, and the advantages of graphite are pretty minimal. Steel shafts are also much more consistently manufactured, so you're more likely to get a consistent variation between adjacent clubs than with graphite. They also twist less under torque than even the best of graphite shafts. This means implies that you will probably get more consistent iron shots with steel than with graphite.
Graphite shafts are lighter, so in principle a player should be able to generate a little higher clubhead speed with a graphite shaft. Getting a few extra yards out of your driver might be worth it. Probably not, though. A few extra yards down the fairway would be nice, but I'm more worried about staying IN the fairway. With your irons you don't care so much about maximum distance as accurate, known distance. If you hit every iron five yards further, you now have to hit a soft 8 instead of a normal 9. If you're that good, you probably already have a regular teaching pro, and you would have asked him.
Take a specific 360 yard hole. With steel shafts, you hit a 220 yard drive, then a 7 iron to the green. With graphite, you hit a 230 yard drive, then a soft 8 iron to green. Assuming you hit both of them correctly, you're now on the green either way, but you paid an extra $100 for the graphite shafts. After hitting the graphite-shafted 8, are you now so much closer that you are more likely to one putt (or not three putt) than with the steel? Not likely.
One possible exception to the above discussion is that graphite absorbs vibration better, so if you have sore hands it is said that it is a little more pleasant to play with graphite. Graphite shafts are manufactured a lot more consistent than you make them out to be. You should most definitely use a graphite shaft in your driver--if they weren't consistent why would Tour Pro's use them? It is also recommended to use them in fairways woods and/or hybrids unless you prefer the feel of steel.
Well, NORMALLY if you a man then you get steel and if you a woman then you get graphite. But professionals (like me) get steel. With steel the club comes down harder giving the ball a tremendous power. Some men prefer graphite though because steel is hard to control. The first time I went to steel, i was hitting it horrible but now I'm hitting like a natural, future LPGA pro! Also if you like graphite better, stay with it, it's good to since it gives the ball a good WHIP. Have you seen Pro golfers slow motion back swing with the driver?
I'm not sure if you have noticed, but the drivers shaft is amazingly bended which causes the club to make a WHIP which is a powerful thing so the ball can blast out for a hole in one!
Graphite is usually 20-30% lighter than steel so you can indeed swing faster with less effort. Yes - cheap graphite has worse tolerance (even shaft wall thickness and even torque (twistiness)) than steel - which is bad. Good quality graphite is beneficial to most beginner to average golfers but lets get the cart before the horse. Most beginner to average golfers would do better to buy high quality steel ((True Temper Dynamic Gold Regular) and spend the money they saved on lessons and range balls.
Graphite shafts transmit fewer vibrations up the shaft to the golfer's hands than do steel shafts. This might be good or bad, depending on your skill and your desire. You might want that added feedback that steel shafts offer - or you might be tired of your hands stinging so much on mis-hit shots. The biggest and by far most important difference between steel and graphite shafts is this: graphite shafts are lighter than steel shafts. So clubs that have graphite shafts will be lighter than otherwise identical clubs that have steel shafts. The difference in weight between graphite shafts and steel shafts will translate, for most golfers, into an additional 2-4 mph of swing speed with graphite. And that could mean an extra 6-12 yards of distance with a graphite shaft, compared to a steel shaft. Steel shafts are less expensive than graphite, so the same set of clubs will cost less with steel shafts than with graphite shafts. Steel shafts were once considered much more durable than graphite.
