i play nv 85 gr in my 3 wood, and works great, its a low launch and keeps it really tight, very good choice, check the aldila store in ebay, they have this in pink for 20 bukcs.

I saw that and that's what got the wheels spinning. Just would have to put up with the razzing about the PINK shaft as I don't wear or own anything else in that shade of colorby choice. (cool)

I really like the NV shaft since it fits my swing very nicely.  If your SS is similar to mine I would stay clear of the NVS, I tried it and it was a hook machine extraordinaire.

I really like both these shafts

NV is great for that low launching, penetrating ball flight with the driver, or a FW you want to primarily hit off the tee

NVS in the HEAVIER weights(and with a 1/2" extra tip) plays remarkably similar to the NV but gives a nice high ball flight for FW woods off the deck


I've got a NVS 85 pink in my 4 wood and I just ordered up a NVS 75 for a strong three, Aldila Store is blowing them out at 35% off too!!!

Please see my sig.  And you would have to pry them from my dead hands.  I'm about to build a backup driver with the NVS 75 X shaft.

110 mph driver swing speed.  Carry my 3w about 230s.  Hit it off the tee in the 250s, even into the 260s.

I play the ball right to left naturally.  I have NO issue drawing the ball with these shafts, but I can also hit a high fade.  I don't have a very hard release, really swing with the body.  Wouldn't say i've ever fought a hook with any of my clubs with NVS shafts.

I'm leaning to NVS 85g (raw) Stiff flex.

How did those of you that play them in FWYS tip them?

I was looking at these for my Nike CPRs... would 85 be a good weight for a hybrid?

For fairways Aldila says tip 1" and then install, honestly with the NVS I think it should be at least 1.25" unless you really struggle to get the ball airborne.  My fitter found a lot of the NVS(and some of the lighter NV's like the 55 and 65 gram versions) play somewhat soft to flex

My NVS 85 is tipped 1.5" as I wanted a slightly lower flight with the 4 wood, when I get my 75 gram I'm debating between 1.25" and 1.5" and am leaning towards 1.25" as its going in a 13* three wood

I like 'em to play a little soft in my FWY woods actually. I've got R flex HM2000 Tour 85's in my BUL 3 & 5 woods that are tipped 1.5".

If I remember correctly, I wrote it down somewhere....

1.5" tip for the hybrid
1.25" for the 3 & 5 wood

As you can see, I play a stiff shaft TIPPED in my driver.  I have a 105-110mph swing speed.  So I can play X stiff if I want, but i've been leaning towards slightly softer shafts.  The X flex NVS does NOT feel nor play like an X stiff.  Its got a lively feel.  I feel like I can swing them and still pound them high and long.  I don't feel like I need to rip at it to get the shaft to kick.
