    Do you like a stiff shaft or a more bendy one?

    Does having a stiff one effect performance? or does speed having an effect of how bendy it is?

    It's all about the kick point man.

    You need regular flex though, I will not say this again. Mine is stiff.

    hmm i play my irons well though so surely stiff shafts are still more bendy than steel shafts??

    will i not be able to hit the ball?

    Steel shafts always for irons, don't get all female on me.

    There are variances in flex to steel shafts also.

    It'll affect how you flex your knees.

    It won't mean you can't hit it, just that it'll cause a slight raising of the head when you come through the shot.

    I can guarantee that you need regular flex clubs. You are way, way off being in need of stiff flex shafts.

    And yes, it makes a massive difference.
