    Nippon Graphite Shafts

    The Nippon NS Pro and Modus line of steel shafts are getting more popular every day, but many golfers do not realize that the company also makes graphite shafts.

    THP TV sat down with Nippon at their US office in California to discuss the Regio Formula line of graphite shafts and what makes them unique.

    I've almost pulled the trigger and purchased the Formula MB multiple times, but just never did it since there was no place to demo one first. Looking forward to this!!

    Hmm, a graphite driver/wood shaft designed to be paired with my new Nippon Modus3 130 iron shafts; very interesting! I will definitely be spec hunting this afternoon...

    Wow, I had no idea at all. That's really cool and I love how they match up with the steel counterparts. I've been playing the Modus3 120 in my last two sets of irons and love them, these would be fun to try out and compare someday.

    I had no idea these existed. Definitely nice options to balance out the product line. I know the bend profiles align with the steel shafts, but has anyone in here actually hit these?

    Had no idea they made graphite shafts. Intrigued by the yellow one and hope to be able to demo it one day. Would love to see them get into graphite iron shafts.

    I must admit that I didn’t know Nippon offered graphite shafts. After getting my first taste of Nippon irons shafts this week (980 G.H.) I like them a lot.

    The fact that I can get a similar profile in my graphite shafts for my hybrids and woods is exciting, who wouldn’t want the consistent feel throughout the bag?

    Very cool info as I knew they made some graphite options, but had no idea what/where they fit within their whole umbrella of shafts. Would love to give the yellow a rip.
