WRX Spotlight: Nippon N.S. PRO Regio Formula graphite shafts

Published

on

Nippon Shaft was long known as manufacturers of high-end lighter weight golf shafts. That changed some years ago with the introduction of MODUS³, a tour-weight and quality line of steel iron shafts. GolfWRX members took notice as well. This thread on PGA Pros switching to Nippon iron shafts which have amassed an astounding 580,000+ views since it began in 2014. Take some time to read it when you get a chance since there’s some fascinating information.

Nippon is not just steel, however. N.S. PRO Regio Formula graphite shafts are a complimentary line of graphite shafts designed for MODUS³ iron shaft users. These are designed to fit similar bend profiles of the corresponding MODUS³ iron shafts.

Products: NIPPON N.S. PRO Regio Formula graphite shafts (Various driver and fairway shaft models are designed to fit users of NIPPON MODUS³ iron shafts)

Pitch: You can match the profile of your iron shaft to your graphite shafts.

N.S. PRO Regio Formula B

N.S. PRO Regio Formula B and the N.S. PRO MODUS³ Tour 120 have similar shaft bend profiles: Firm tip, soft mid, soft grip

Performance: Increased distance with improved initial velocity, decreased spin and optimized launch angle of trajectory. Increase your carry distance with faster (OR improved) initial velocity, decreased spin and optimize launch angle of trajectory.

N.S. PRO Regio Formula M

N.S. PRO Regio Formula M and the N.S. PRO MODUS³ Tour 130 have similar shaft bend profiles: Softer tip, firm mid, firm grip

Performance: Increased distance with improved initial velocity, decreased spin and optimized launch angle of trajectory.

N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB

N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB and the N.S. PRO MODUS³
Tour 105 and 125 have similar shaft ben profiles: Firm tip, firm mid, mid-to-firm grip

Performance: Increased distance with improved initial velocity, decreased spin and optimized launch angle of trajectory.

Our take on Nippon N.S. PRO Regio Formula graphite shafts

Nippon’s N.S. PRO line of graphite shafts sport an interesting fitting concept: Use a particular MODUS³ iron shaft? Here’s the corresponding shaft for your metal woods. It’s designed to take a bit of the guesswork out of the fitting while providing users with the performance they’ve come to expect.

Here’s the cheat sheet…

  • Use MODUS³ Tour 105 or 125? Try N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB in your woods (that’s the gold one)
  • Use MODUS³ Tour 120? Try N.S. PRO Regio Formula B in your woods (blue)
  • Use MODUS³ Tour 130? Try N.S. PRO Regio Formula M in your woods (red)

It’s a simple concept that Nippon MODUS³ users should check out in 2019. Of course, you don’t have to be a MODUS³ user to put Regio Formula shafts in your bag. Like Nippon iron shafts, golfers can expect a smooth feel with no matter what model they choose.

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop

Published

on

As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
