Nippon N.S. pro 950gh shafts

4 posts in this topic

I was considering trying these shafts in my irons (currently using DG high launch s300). Does anyone have experience of these shafts? Do they spin a lot? Also, the tip is .355 (i think), and my current shafts are .370 (i think lol). Would it be as simple as using a shim for a club fitter to swap these shafts around?
Any other thoughts on these shafts appreciated.
6i ss around 90 mph

I have these. Very light (95 grams). Very Ideal for slower tempo swings(for swingers rather than hitters). One of the most widely used shafts in Asia. Also very popular among LPGA tour professionals. Plays softer than dgs300 (I use stiff 950gh). High launch. I would say you give it a try with x stiff. Remember, these shafts are very soft. Probably the most advanced lite shafts available as Nippon is known for their lighter shafts.

Thanks. I'm thinking of trying them because my brother has a spare set of irons with these shafts in them so I could pull them and install them in my set. I am more of a swinger than a hitter so maybe they will suit me? What is the cost of pulling the nippons and installing them in my current irons?

Got these in my irons, and I like them a lot. As Jkwakopo said, these are high launch shafts for skinny guys like me (haha). I've seen my 1.5hcp friend play them and they balloon pretty badly (but he is a very hard and long hitter) on high speed swings, but I'd say in S they are fine for up to 95~100mph (driver club head speed). If you swing faster than that, then try them in X but I'd recommend you look into the slightly heavier 1050GH in X for a slightly lower launch, if you still want lightweight shafts.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
