As a recovering sufferer from Tennis elbow, if these could out Steelfiber Steelfiber, I would be very interested for sure if they became available for entire sets at a price no more stupid than Steelfiber :-)

I dunno, just looks like someone stuck a steel shaft extender in the back of a graphite shaft.  Bad club-making if you ask me.... :busted2:

What you think it looks like has got nothing to do with reality, and I highly doubt Nippon, probably the world's tightest tolerances shaft maker, is going to be guilty "bad club-making". Nothing is "busted" by you AT ALL

Gun barrel manufacturers are doing something similar.  The bore of the rifle is just a sleeve made of steel.  The walls of the sleeve are thin.  They then wrap that sleeve in carbon to stengthen it.  The resulting barrel is lighter than all steel but very strong.

there seems to be confusion in this thread about Nippon's use of the word "Hybrid" as in Prototype Hybrid (graphite and steel) shaft. Not as in shaft for a hybrid club, as is evidenced by the pic with the iron heads attached to a couple of them that say Hybrid on them. ANyways, these look pretty cool.

Isn't this kind of the opposite of the Aerotechs?

I'd love the two designers to debate why one concept is better than the other.

I wasn't knocking you I was agreeing with you.

My guess is they were pretty bad performers because we'd hear something more about them in the past 6 months if they were any good.

I doubt this is the case.  Nippon will only release a product if it meets their high standards for performance.

Has anyone put one of these in play yet? I’ve not seen anybody use one.

Good old GolfWRX...a few pics of a new shaft, painted black (that’s murdered out to you cool dudes) without any details on playing characteristics, and people start foaming at the mouth, declaring they “need this shaft in my life”. Got to love this place.

It’s interesting that the one shaft is labeled as a “350 tip”. I wonder if that’s for .355 heads?

They won't release something if it competes with a current Nippon offering. They prefer not to get stuck in the TM like cycle of cannibalizing your own sales.

Interesting, although I haven't noticed anyone playing them and they've been available for a while.

Did you get any idea about profile, etc?

I was really hoping this would come out, I love Modus 130 in my irons and it would be cool to have a hybrid equivalent.

Interesting, although I haven't noticed anyone playing them and they've been available for a while.

Did you get any idea about profile, etc?

Could barely get him to show it to me at the time, much less hit one. Its gonna play similar to the 120 but lighter and smoother from what I was told. His feedback from players was that you could reallly load it like a steelshaft and not worry about it, but still get the same kick you get from a graphite to get a few extra yards

I'd heard the same thing, Nippon building buzz amongst the players by making them as rare as rocking horse s***.

I love my 120s and I didn’t know anything could be smoother. Sign me up if this is true.

I’ll take a 100g for my driving iron please!
