New iron shaft that Nunchuk is bringing to the Tour.


Two different paint jobs that they working on.  Solid silver/grey or the silver-grey & burgundy shaft.  They are also trying to decide on the graphics.

Looking at doing the silver/grey shaft with a burgundy block on the underside with white graphics, similar to what is on the burgundy & silver/grey shaft.


Thoughts on graphics?


Greg

Silver for me Greg - do you have a price per shaft - or a set of 8.  Many thanks.

Silver by far. Solid burgundy would be bad enough...but two-tone takes it to a whole 'nother (worse) level.

If it were any other color, I would turn my nose up at the two-tone.  However, my Saluki DNA can not resist maroon.  I'll be watching for their release, either way.

Cost of Nunchuk in Canada is the same as it is in the US. $259 Canadian for Driver. Not sure where $400 comes from.


I also prefer the silver over the two tone.

Interested to see how 104g shafts swingweight out in irons. I would definetly go with the all silver, or if they can split it like the Daiwa/Seiko Roddio with top is one color, bottom another that is fine. I don't like it when part way down it just fades to silver. Looks lame. The only way that looks good is if it's closer to the grip ala original Fuji Tour Spec graphics.

So here's a question - do you still need to spine/pure these shafts when installing them?

Probably. Different process but you can do the same thing with graphite driver and wood shafts so I'm not sure why these would be any different.

I only ask because these shafts are different, they don't have a "flex" and instead have stiff butt and  tip sections separated by a flexible kick point in the middle (hence the name "Nunchuck") - just completely unconventional. That being said, do they have a spine like typical shafts?

I cannot say for sure, but unless they're manufactured in a completely different manner than most other graphite shafts, they would have to have one plane that bends less than the others, and would stay more consistent throughout the swing. I haven't read up on the topics anytime lately, but I think steel shafts have a spine (one side) while graphite shafts have FLO (flat line oscillation) which would mean that there are almost like two spines, exactly 180* apart.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this is my very general understanding.
