Found this, may be some help at least on the golf club thing.
Did not realize you were in France!!!
Will see what I can do, about the shafts...
Numbers are used on golf clubs to indicate the type of club. Golf clubs are divided into four main types--woods, irons, wedges and putters. While a putter won't have a number and a wedge is usually identified by a letter such as "P" for a pitching wedge, the woods and irons all have numbers. It is crucial that a beginning golfer knows what these numbers represent because each number has a direct correlation to the amount of loft the club has. The lower the number a club is, the further a golfer should be able to hit the ball with it.
1. Although once made of wood, the club heads of this type of club are now made up of different metal alloys. The driver is the club that has the largest head and is designated as the one wood; it has a small angle of loft and hits the ball the furthest.
2. Fairway woods, usually numbered two through five, have a smaller club head but more loft to them. The fairway woods can hit the ball off of a grass lie and are used for long approach shots to greens.
3. The long irons are clubs with thin, grooved metal heads and are numbered one through four. The long irons are designed to hit the ball longer than the other irons.
4. The irons marked five through seven are the mid-range irons. They are lofted to hit the ball higher than the long irons, which means the ball won't go as far--usually 140 to 160 yards.
5. The eight and nine iron are used when the distance to the green is under 130 yards but still too far for a pitching wedge. These short irons have much more loft to them than the lower numbered clubs, and have shorter shafts to give them better control.
