Nippon's new hybrid shaft combines the best of both worlds

Nippon Hybrid 1

Nippon Shaft’s new N.S. PRO MODUS³ Hybrid, the brand’s first ever hybrid shaft made of steel and graphite, is designed to bring the best characteristics of both materials to hybrid clubs.

The new shaft is engineered to provide those of you that like to game a hybrid with the solid feel and tighter dispersion associated with steel along with the easier launch, greater distance, higher trajectory and vibration-dampening qualities of graphite.

Nippon Shaft’s patented special adhesive enables the thin-walled, 70-gram steel shaft to adhere to an outer coating of multi-layered carbon (graphite) to create a shaft of ideal weight and flexibility.

He continued, “most golfers use steel shafts in their irons and graphite shafts in their drivers and 3-woods. The N.S. PRO MODUS³ Hybrid Shaft is made specifically for hybrid clubs. We think the concept will make sense to golfers, who will be convinced when they experience the performance of the Hybrid Shaft.”
