Just wondering if anyone had any experience with Driver or Fairway Woods on steel shaft. Will it give you the same distance as graphite or carbon steel? scratch

Must be super heavy loh.

Doubt can even swing properly let alone drive same distance.

I experimented with a project like that and now that club is sort of my go to club in my bag...

I put a DG X100 Steel Wood shaft on my Nike VRS Covert 3 wood but I played it to 0.5" longer than the stock shaft.

Range measurement showed that I did not lose any distance (210 - 230 yd range), measured with the Swing Caddie Launch Monitor (so may not be as accurate as Trackman)...

But it sure is heavy to swing... Never really measured the SW, maybe I will pay Henry a visit. FYI, the club is an Asian spec club so it has adjustable loft. I still am able to slot in the stock graphite shaft if I wish to...
