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.
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.
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.
