I golfed with a gentleman today who claimed that golf shafts "wear out" and need to be replaced every 4 years (assuming 50 rounds per year).

 

Can anyone (equipment junkies, club builders, club fitters, etc.) please chime in with your thoughts on this?

 

Is this a valid claim?

I think his claim is off by at least one order of magnitude. I am still double hulling 40 year old gen 1 graphite fly rods that effectively use the same basic build technology and, see much higher duty cycles.
