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.

WRX Spotted at U.S. Open: Justin playing just Rosey with new TPT

Published

on

We are a little more than halfway through the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and so far the course is giving and taking as much as you would expect from a perfect setup by the USGA.

Taking the lead on Thursday and continuing to lurk into the weekend is Justin Rose. Since we have been paying close attention to his Honma golf bag all year, we noticed a shaft change in his Tour World driver.

We reached out to TPT to see if we could get an update on what Rose has put in play for what is often referred to as one of the toughest driving weeks of the year. Here’s the inside info

“Justin has put into play a TPT Golf 14 MKP-LT-SW shaft in his Honma driver. This shaft is a full 10 CPM ( Cycles per Minute ) stiffer than the 15 LKP-LT-SW shaft that he put in play at The Memorial after testing it that week. It’s also different in that it has a Mid Kick Point (MKP), where as the 15 LKP-LT-SW has a Low-Kick-Point (LKP) design.”

From a technical and fitting perspective (generally speaking) a lower kick point shaft will hit the ball higher with more spin compared to a mid or high kick point shaft if all other factors are equal. We don’t have access to his driver numbers but with the U.S. Open being played on what can always end up as a windy venue the theory would be that this change to the MKP is to help keep ball flight lower and more controlled — which will also be a benefit next month at the Open Championship.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best budget driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Ivyguy who is on the lookout for the best driver to be had at an affordable price ($300 or less). Our members give their suggestions, with plenty of different drivers getting a mention.

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.

  • tbsbama: “Cobra King LTD is a wonderful driver. The pro model has lofts from 7 to 10 with fade settings. The regular from 9 to 12 with draw settings. Both heads are absolute bombers and can be found pretty cheap. Best driver I have hit in several years.”
  • zzyzxx33: “I won a Tour Edge EXS Driver, and it has been Awesome! Great Price, Look, Sound and Results! It’s longer than anything else I’ve hit.”
  • AG12: “I would say the regular PING G400…you can get new for $300 on PGA SS website, ’17 M2 is a good choice, and the M4 can be had at under $300 used in most shops.”
  • Badshaft: “I have the F8+ and bought the extra weights off of eBay (inexpensive, shipped from China)- 12g front 7g back- Blue Tensei 70g stiff. Longest for me – straight and as accurate as anything. Nice well-balanced combo. Looks to me it has the same moveable weight strategy as the F9.”
