Nippon Shaft to release Tour-proven steel shafts to the public

Nippon Shaft has announced that, for the first time, they will bring to market two new types of steel shafts that tour pros already have used to win a combined 14 events on the PGA TOUR and the Japan Golf Tour.

Nippon Shaft has announced the release of the N.S. PRO MODUS³ Tour 105 and N.S. PRO MODUS³ Tour 125 for sale to the public. The release of the two shafts is the outcome of four years of Nippon Shaft’s work with Tour professionals, who began interacting with company representatives when Nippon Shaft began travelling with the PGA TOUR on a regular basis in 2009.

“Nippon Shaft is proud to add two models to the tour-proven N.S. PRO MODUS³ series: the lightweight N.S. PRO MODUS³ Tour 105 and the traditional weight N.S. PRO MODUS³ Tour 125,” said Hiro Fukuda, Sales and Marketing for Nippon Shaft.

“It takes time and exhaustive testing to create products that meet the performance requirements of the world’s best players,” Fukuda said. “Listening to players’ feedback over the last 48 months, Nippon Shaft engineers developed ‘tour’ prototype shafts to suit the needs of tour professionals and these shafts have been further refined and engineered in response to their comments.”

Tour pros have been using – and winning with – the two shafts in prototype form both in competition and in testing environments, providing important input to Nippon Shaft engineers in the development phase.

Professional tour golfers play one of the four N.S. PRO MODUS³ Tour models because each delivers optimum control over three modes of ball flight — trajectory, distance and direction – by the optimum control over the three sections of a golf shaft.

The shafts will be available in the United Kingdom through Nippon Shaft’s network of authorised dealers.
