    Looking into shafts for the new TS driver and still in love with the old Aldila blue bye you prototype from several years ago.

    Just curious how long to shafts usually last, do they have a shelf life?

    Wondering if anyone else has the same love affair with an older shaft and how long you have had it in play?

    Generally speaking, a player will not have to replace his or her golf clubs due to the condition of the clubs' shafts within their lifetime because the graphite or steel that are usually used to make modern clubs are super-strong materials resistant to damage and deterioration.

    Simply put, as long as the graphite shaft is not cracked or peeling and the steel shafts are not kinked or badly pitted or rusted, a player's golf clubs will last longer than a lifetime, though it is a commonly held misconception that the shaft will eventually wear out or suffer from fatigue to the point that it will no longer perform the same — which is only true if the shaft is damaged or bent.

    As long as a player takes care of and maintains his or her clubs, protecting the shafts from damage, the lifespan of golf shafts isn't something one typically needs worry about.

    I found the project x hzrdus shaft is better in keeping the ball straight.
