Nippon Shaft

About Nippon Golf Shafts:
In early 1959, the proven strength and durable flexibility of NHK Spring Co. LTD.’s marketing-leading automotive value-spring alloy served as the genesis of what would become a revolution in the golf shaft industry. And since its inception, Nippon Shaft has developed proprietary golf shaft materials and specialized heat-treatment processes resulting in a line of high performance golf shafts that are superior in feel, consistency and performance. Nippon Shaft has revolutionized the golf game, making its shafts the defining component of the ultimate obsession. When Nippon Shaft’s N.S. PRO 950GH came to market in 1999, it was the first consistently-made sub-100 gram steel shaft in the world. In addition, all Nippon Shaft products are “constant weighted,” meaning that every iron in a player’s bag be it a 3-iron or a pitching wedge weighs the same. Professionals demand constant weighting for the sake of consistency. Amateurs and higher handicappers also can benefit from constant weighting.

Nippon Technology:
Automatic comprehensive production you can count on. Uniform quality control is our trademark. From tube production to tapering, heat treatment, plating and testing, quality control is guaranteed at every stop of the way at Nippon Shaft. It starts with strict raw material inspection then continues with in-process controls throughout the integrated, full-scale assembly line. This uncompromising commitment to quality is just one more reason that Nippon Shaft is viewed by the top club manufacturers as the most prestigious name in lightweight steel shafts.
All Nippon Shaft steel shafts are “constant weighted.”  This means that every iron in a player’s bag weighs the same whether it be a 3-iron or a pitching wedge.  The irons also are available in either parallel or taper tips, which is unique in the industry.
The real “magic” of Nippon Shaft sub-100-gram steel shaft is its ability to be both “soft” and “hard” at the same time. The marriage of pliability and stability is an apparent contradiction that is overcome by a combination of the type of steel Nippon Shaft uses in its manufacturing process and in the manufacturing process itself. Both can be traced to the company’s roots in the automobile industry.

Nippon N.S. Pro 950 GH Steel Shaft:
The product that propelled Nippon Shaft in to the elite group of golf equipment manufacturers was the N.S. PRO 950GH lightweight steel shaft, which was introduced in 1999. At 95 grams, it was the first sub-100 gram steel shaft that maintained the consistency of traditional steel shafts, which weighed in at approximately 125 grams. The lighter weighted shafts enabled players to increase their swing speeds and therefore increase their distances. The stability of the shafts meant that their clubs would perform consistently and accurately.
Ever since its release, this top-selling model has been a favorite among golfers of all levels looking to take points off their scores. It features exceptional weight balance and control, with ultra-lightweight design comparable to graphite that makes it easier than ever to swing. And the use of new NSGS8665V alloy co-developed and patented with Nisshin Steel has helped create a revolutionary combination of strength and weight balance.
