Hey The difference between the two is the flex point of the shaft. The Rife shafts generally are for better golfers. The rifles have mid to mid-high flex points. Shafts like True Temper have all the points(low, med, high). The Rifle shafts are more personalised where as the others cover a larger range of golfers needs. In my oppinion, unless you are seriousey crazy about golf, save a little money and stay with True Temper. They make great shafts and there isn't that much of a difference to lower scores considerably.

Rifle shafts are simply a brand, that's it. You have Ford and GM, each different, each just as good as the other, each has expensive models, each has chearer models. Rifle shafts come in all flexes and varying flex points, True Temper comes in all flexes and varying flex points. True temper shafts are what called a step steel, they have gradual steps in the shaft diameter as it goes up to the grip, rifle shafts have a smooth diameter change in the shaft as it goes up. True Temper calls there various flexes R, S, or X as in R-100, S-100, X-100, Rifle has there flexes as a numbered figure, such as; 5.0 (regular stiffness), 6.0 (stiff), or 7.0 (x-stiff).
