What is "Uniflex"?



Uniflex shafts are deigned to increase stiffness with increased speed and become more flexible with a slower swing. These are the most common steel shafts in golf today. They are ideal for golfers who normally maintain a swing speed between 75 and 95 miles per hour.





HL is an abbreviation for "High Launch". Clubs designated with HL have a lower center of gravity to assist in launching the ball on a high trajectory.





Draw bias is referring to heel weighting on or in the club that will assist in closing the face upon impact. Draw bias is generally preferred by players who may be battling a slice

  • Draw Bias – Assists in repairing a fade or slice
  • Neutral Bias – Weighting concentrated in or on center of club.
  • Fade Bias – Weighting on or in toe of the club to assist in repairing a draw or hook.



Shaft flex is determined by one single factor . . . swing speed.


Senior or "A" Flex 70-90 mph
Regular Flex 80-90 mph
Stiff Flex 90-100 mph
X-Stiff Flex 100+ mph




When you swing your club, the shaft bends or "loads" to store power. It then straightens or "unloads" to release that power and help create club head speed. The flex point, also called the kick point, is the spot on the shaft where most of that bending takes place. The kick point is important because it helps determine the ball's trajectory after you hit it.

  • Your shaft can have a high, medium or low kick point.
    • Low Kick Point = Higher Trajectory
    • Mid Kick Point = Medium Trajectory
    • High Kick Point = Low Trajectory




CC stands for 'Condition of Competition' which means that the grooves conform to USGA guidelines





Bounce is built into the sole of a wedge to keep it from digging into the turf or sand. The greater the bounce, the more the sole resists digging. Bounce helps prevent "fat" shots by keeping the club moving through the turf or sand. Having enough bounce is particularly important on sand shots. Too much bounce can make shots from firm conditions more difficult to execute.





That is the million dollar question. As each golfer has different needs and abilities, determining the right set can be a daunting task. This question is best answered by speaking to one of our Golf Professionals and providing them with your information and discussing where you want to take your game. As a rule of thumb though, the chart below may assist.

Lie angle is the angle between the center of the shaft and the sole of the club. Upright means the toe of the club will be higher than standard and flat means the toe of the club will be lower than standard.

  • We are able to adjust the lie angle on most of our irons. Please contact one of our Golf Professionals to see if your selection may be altered.
