    Instead of making the courses longer or the ball shorter, why not just design (or change) courses so that the most advantageous tee shot is 280-300 yards. Dog-legs, trees, ponds, big ole pot bunkers, these are all things that could be done to a course to make hitting 350 a big disadvantage. We went through a period where we changed all the courses to simply make them longer, so we should be able to do the same but this time be smarter about it and make the focus more on precision instead.

    Ball rollback people are wrong. It’s the worst way to go about controlling distance in the game. The ball rollback would effect everyone on Tour equally. It would do nothing but shorten all the players across the board. All of the longer players will still be long, they will still have less club than others into greens, nothing would change.

      In the past the game was protected from technology by lengthening courses. We can’t do that anymore- more land,more water, more maintenance all drive up costs and playing-time. The game is already too expensive and time consuming. Do a little research on the global fresh water problem. I believe that not only roll back the ball but that pro’s should be limited in driver size, say 330-360 ccs. that way when they miss the sweetspot they’ll pay a penalty so will only bomb it when strategicly viable or needed. And for those that don’t like bi-fircation they are kidding themslves if they think they are playing the same game as pro’s. And plenty of other sports have bi-fircation, i.e.- the further one progresses the more skill is required. Just my 2 cents.

        Golf is *already* bifurcated: tee boxes. And handicaps.

        Consider the source(s): Jack Nicklaus is at the head of the pack to “roll back the ball”. He’s an arch-conservative supporting a lawless prez… He is NOT the type to advocate “regulation” or “ruling bodies telling us what to do”. Therefore, his concerns are personal: his ego for his professional career and records, and his ego as a course designer and architect.

        Meanwhile, the winner of any tournament must have be at least one stroke lower than the rest of the field; includes driving, irons, putting, etc.

        If a “tour ball” punishes longer hitters disproportionately, there will be lawsuits. There will likely be lawsuits from ball manufacturers anyway. The average fan will not be impressed when driving distance drops significantly. I don’t think the “roll back” crowd has thought through the ramifications carefully. (Kind of like prohibition and the “war on drugs”)…

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

2021 Nippon N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB+ driver and wood shafts

Published

on

Although they have been producing graphite shafts for years, Nippon is better known for the performance and quality of their Modus line of steel shafts – but with the release of the new NS Pro Regio Formula MB+ graphite shafts, they are looking to deliver the same performance to drivers and fairway woods.

“Nippon is proud to introduce the new N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB+ graphite driver shaft. With the completion of the Formula + series, golfers can now have a driver shaft that works in perfect harmony with their Nippon Shaft steel shafts irrespective of their weight or configuration.”
– Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft.

The release of the Formula MB + shafts is intended to complete the Nippon NS Pro Regio Formula+ series since each model is intended to work for golfers alongside the well known N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR steel irons shafts. The concept for developing the profiles was to offer a similar feel and performance so golfers could have top to bottom confidence in their clubs.

The previously available Regio Formula B+ driver shaft is designed to match the performance of the N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR 120, the Regio Formula M+ matches the N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR 130, and the all-new N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB+ shaft mimics the dynamic performance and power of the N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR 105 and/or TOUR 125 shafts.

 “Our goal is to give each individual player a consistent feel with their shafts throughout the bag in order to improve performance and make the game more enjoyable,”

The shaft’s performance is driven from using an ultra-high elasticity carbon sheet the full length of the shaft to reduce twisting of the head that occurs during a swing, according to Nippon, and it also helps replicate the smooth feel of the Modus3 steel shafts.

Price, specs, and availability

The shaft is scheduled for release in Japan on January 15 with a full global release set for the end of January 2021 trough Nippon authorized dealers.

The new Nippon NS Pro Regio Formula MB+ is available in a number of weights and flexes to suit any golfers and will be priced at $530 each.
