Matt Kuchar first switched to Aerotech Steel Fiber in 2008 and his lacklustre career has been transformed every since. he has won many tournaments including coming close to winning the Fedex Cup twice . other professionals like Brandt Snedeker, Carl Pettersson and Cameron Beckman have also switched to SF.

of course not many people know that Jack Nicklaus was probably the person who introduce the SF to Matt. Jack was one of the first to go out and bought a set of shafts and had it installed on his irons.

here's a look at the winner of the Player's Championshop 2012. unfortunately all the big guns failed to master the very tricky golf course.

not bad for a unheralded professional using a graphite shaft....boy i love underdogs.

i also use steel shaft on my wedges.....and normal graphite shaft on my driver...only irons and hybrids on steel fiber so no need to be afraid to sound kuku.

So it is still possible to have wedges on SF shaft? What will be the different of wedges on SF and on steel shaft?

we usually recommend SF for those who prefer to play approach shots with their wedges. hence in most cases, 50 to 52 degrees is as far as we go for wedges on SF.

hope it helps....DGman

Eric said "Why you want to play SF, SF are for whimps!!"

I replied "Yes I am a whimp, but I know what i want"

Thanks Eric and YL for this wonderful job in 1 day turnaround, complete with matching Ah Seng grips and white chocolates.

Now time to give the other SF convert and his Tits a run for his money

Ralph have been a SF user for years. like most of them who first switched from normal graphite, they start from i70 and then move to the i80, while the other Titty user who is Lenny, Ralph's brother moved from NS Pro 950 to i80.

the biggest complaint came from Lenny's golf kaki CL who was recently beaten on the last hole at airforce. Lenny apparently took CL Razr Hawk 5 wood fitted with an TourAd SF 6 (not steel fiber) and landed the 2nd shot to within feet for a birdie. needless to say Lenny has to get fitted for a similar FW with a SF 5.

Kaching$$$

If you only had a 5 wood to the green on Air Force #9 from the Blue Tee, I think the drive deserves some applause as well Smile
