Hello Everyone!

Thanks for all your interest to try out Nippon shafts. As I have stated in the past, I am not employed by, or affiliated in any way with, Nippon directly. I am just a fan like you all. After I got a ton of requests for some test shafts I reached out to Nippon and asked for some 6 iron shafts to send out to everyone. They were thrilled with the idea and hooked us up with some shafts!!!

I've never done this before so I'm just running with it. My plan is to send the clubs out to people. Let them demo it on the course / range and then they will forward it on to the next person in line. I will pay to mail the first clubs out myself. Then everyone down the list must agree to pay for the shipping to forward it on. You must also agree to ship again in XX number of days. I'm open to suggestions, was thinking between 10 and 14 days. Everyone should be able to get in some practice or play time in that amount of time and we want as many to try it as possible!

I will be providing the heads for the start. I bought these with my own money, most are demo heads. A few are new-ish but I tried to stay with forged and players CB as best I could. If you want to take it to a clubmaker (or do it yourself,) have it installed in your head, try it, and then reinstall back in my head, that is all on you. But the club must be back together before you days are up and when you send it on. (Unless you love to PM people and you ask the next guy on the list if he wants it apart as well.) I might ask everyone to use discretion if a club comes in mangled up we might have to ask the person before you what happened to it. I paid for these heads so lets try to treat them like they are your gamer and keep them as nice as we can for the next people.

I'll create a list in the next posts for each club and add to it the waiting list. Once it gets going I'll leave it up to you guys to communicate with the person after you on when you're going to ship and to get their address. I can jump in and PM someone if it's been too long as needed. But hopefully everyone involved is a cool guy/gal and will just adhere to the rules and move it along.
To be fair, if you live in a foreign country. I'm going to ask that you pay for the to and the from shipping if you want to try it that bad. But I understand this will probably be too expensive of an experiment for that. We'll have to coordinate with someone willing to do the extra work of a customs form and give their paypal out for the extra fee.
I'm going to try to keep it simple and use a box with a single Priority mail sticker with To and From on the box so you can just put a new label over it and reuse the box.

I have the following shafts & heads:

Modus Tour 125S 6i
Modus Tour 125X 6i
Modus Tour 120TX 6i
Modus Tour 120X 6i shaft
Modus Tour 120X (7i shaft)
130S & 130X are being requested. Sorry about that.

If the program takes off and is working great I will ask for more shafts. I have requests already for 105X, 105S, 130S, 130X, 120R and the Modus wedge 125. But lets see how this goes first. If any of you have connections and have extra 6i heads let me know please!!

Please post what shaft you want to try, maybe what head you prefer, and where you live. I will try to collect a list of the first few each and see if I can accommodate a head preference for the majority of that shaft testers preference. (Won't matter after the start, you get what you get I guess.) For now lets stick to just 1 club per person, depending on the interest we may let some folks jump in on another shaft list to try that one too.

My hope is each of you try the shaft out and write a review or help out with comparisons to your gamer shafts. And ultimately if it is the correct shaft for you you can work through your local dealer or find a Nippon dealer online to order what you need.

Finally, HUGE Thank you to Nippon for hooking us up! This is really cool, I hope we can keep it going and expand it to more shafts!

I will pass but urge my US friends to try the new 105x in the Modus 3.  It was money for me at the PGA show.  I am a 108 driver swing FWIW

Reminded me a little of the old zz65 if I dare say ...

Re: Nippons.  I loved my 1150GH x shafts in my s55's ... smooth feeling and very accurate ...  but had to go graphite due to tendonitis.  Seems others are also figuring this out

great idea MARK !!!

Great job as always mark! WRX is lucky to have you! Can't wait to hear how it goes. We can't golf yet up here!

But I'd love to try the 105's and wedge shafts when you get those.

Are the shafts standard 6i length?  I'd be interested in the 130S w/o a head if possible.

I'd be interested in the 125s...09 x forged or mp64. I'd probably put it in my own head to try anyway but I'd be interested for sure. Won't be able to hit balls for a while so maybe don't put me too close to the top...maybe march april

I'm in utah

Hi Mark, Are you in So Cal?  If so, I would love to borrow the 125s for a few hours or meet you at a range nearby, please let me know if this is possible. I can donate a 6-iron to the cause it's a few years old though...

Hi Mark, I'd like to try the 125x. I know we exchanged some PMs and it might be easier just to try and meet up one of these days. I can get a 6 iron head and have it shafted, just gotta go check out the single club bin at Roger Dunn.

What do you guys think? I was thinking we could possibly make the shafts 1/2" over standard. Open to suggestions.

+ length will certainly provide the most amount of utility.

Regarding my request for the shaft w/o a head, if you want to install the 130S into the MP64 I can work with that if it's going to be a desired combo.  I was going to put the shaft into a MP32 head so, while not a direct comparison, it should be close enough.

I didn't provide location in the previous post, but I am I'm in Northern CA (Bay Area).

I'd love to test the 130X, as soon as I can- I'm looking at T-MBs and currently have a hard stepped PX 6.5 5iron which is a little too spinny and low launching.  

1/2" over would be great for me, that way I can just throw it in the T-MB 5 iron and test it hard stepped!  (which is what I think I need anyway!)

Just tell me what the best one to go with trying to switch to something softer and smoother than tour issue x100.  125 or 130 s ?

125x would be a softer and smoother

I've got C-Taper 130X shafts right now. I'd love to test the most stable offering here--I believe that is the 120X?

Would also LOVE to try the wedge shaft, if that program ever gets up and running...

I currently play the Modus 130 stiff but am really interested in trying out the 125 stiff. I've played primarily C-Taper stiff and PX 6.0 before I got into the Nippons last year. Love all the info you provide on here, Mark! Thanks!

I think I goofed and I actually have a 120TX, not a 130X. I'll see if I can get a 130X since we had some interest on that one as well.

I'm gonna put you down for 125X at first. If you feel it is too stiff we can drop you into the 125S list. 125X I find plays both softer and is for sure smoother than X100ti.
