Need to replace a Nippon NS Pro 1100GH in a Callaway diablo forged 3 iron. Which flex/ Nippon shaft would be comparable to the Callaway uniflex Nippon shaft?
Asked by: crgolf
The Uniflex is generally meant to be in between and R and S flex. I would take the R flex and tip trim 1/2" to bring the flex between the R and S flexes. With the 1150GH the 38.5" shaft is the raw length shaft for the 3 iron. The other option is to just install an R or S flex depending on which fits your needs the best. If you use an 8 iron from 150 yards the S flex would be best if you use a 7 iron from 150 yards the R flex would be the best choice.

I have a set of Ping G25 irons and they have NS Pro 950 GH shafts. Question: there is a box with an S in it near the identification -- does that indicate a stiff shaft? Am getting older and having trouble getting ball airborne!
Asked by: Thomas
If the "S" is in a solid box and is below the 950GH designation it is the flex. There is also an "S" with a square line box around it that is followed by the words "for shaft", which is on all Nippon shafts. Not sure what it references but it is not the flex. The Flex is in a solid box and is usually preceded by the word "Flex".

Are these shafts pre cut to length? I am thinking of switching from r flex dynamic gold 300s to something with better feel for Mizuno 825 pro irons. Any suggestions?
Asked by: brokepar
No they are not pre cut to a finished length. When you order the shaft you can request a shaft prep to have them cut for the finished length you would like with your Mizuno 825 pro irons. There is an additional charge of $4.95 per shaft to have the shaft prep service.
For your Mizuno 825 Pro Irons you would actually need the NP0003 shafts which are the .355" taper tip version. They would also have to have the shaft prep service to be cut to your finished length.

How does the 1150GH compare in flex to other shafts like KBS Tour or Rifle? I'd like around 5.0-5.5 flex. Would R work or would I need to hard step it or soft step an S? Thanks
Asked by: Kevomanc
In looking at our shaft test data the Nippon N.S. Pro 1150GH Tour S flex is more flexible then the Project X Rifle, and KBS Tour R flex shafts. Our data showed the KBS Tour R flex as 10 cpms stiffer at the butt end and the Project X Rifle 5.0 13 cpms stiffer. The closest match I found was the Project X Pxi 5.0 flex which was 5 cpm's softer at the butt end then the N.S. Pro 1150 GH Tour S flex. The 5.5 Rifle shaft tested 15 cpm's stiffer then the 1150 GH. The Nippon N.S. Pro 1150GH was more flexible at all the zones we tested compared to the other shaft except the tip stiffness measurement of the original Rifle 5.5 shaft which was more flexible at the tip.
