    Default True Temper Dynamic Gold v.s Nippon Pro

    G'day all,

    I have been hearing a lot of good things about Nippon steel shaft. I am wondering whether any one here have tried them. What would be the difference between the TT Dynamic Gold R300 v.s. Nippon Pro 1050? What are the pros and cons between the two?

    Also if I was to purchase it and have it fitted, where about could I get it done in Sydney and how deep do I have to dig into my pocket for a set of them?

    I would kindly appreciate it if any of the fellow members could assist me.

    Many thanks in advance.


    Kind Regards,
    LQU

    Hi, I have used both in stiff, Nippons are 30 or so grams lighter but I couldn't really notice any great performance difference personally.

    I have tried the Nippon 950 in my irons and I thought they were great. I soft stepped a stiff, and it felt comparable to the R300, but lighter. Trajectory was good, perhaps a little higher than the DG. The Nippons felt a bit "smoother" ... whatever that means.

    I also tried the NSPro 950 in the woods but didn't really like them. A bit too whippy. Felt totally different to the iron shafts.

    The Nippon shafts are around $35 a club. Gary at Custom Golf Services in Balgowlah has them. If you tell him that Jono sent you, he'll probably charge extra ...

    Why don't you give him a call? 9949 8899

    I had Gary reshafted a set of irons with NS Pro 950, as I prefer the lighter feel of the NS Pro. Gary does good works.

    Funny you mention that Jono. I had a 950fw in a 3 wood and it felt like spaghetti. I couldn't have imagined a worse feeling shaft. But I had always heard the iron shafts were a different matter. But once bitten twice shy!

    Goughy,

    Big big difference between the iron shafts and the wood shafts. I loved the iron shafts and HATED the wood shafts. Go figure.

    any noticeable change to your ballflight with the Superlites ?

    also heard they play stiffer to flex than standard DG's ??? is this true ???

    trajectory seems to go okay...still hitting them high (which is what I'm used to)...

    sometimes it looks like it would come up short of the target - but not really...
    not sure if it's the irons or the shafts...we'll see in a couple of weeks time...

    the standard DGS plays much stiffer/heavier....way more!!!

    Jarro,
    Both shafts are high quality in their own right. I would suggest the reason the Mizuno combos go left with 950's is that they are soft which is what the 950's play. They are not crap for the hard swinger you just need to have the right nippon on board and if you do like the 950 and swing hard get them hard stepped. I have the NS1150 in my irons now in stiff flex and have found these shafts to be the best I have used in all the sets I have had. Previously I had the DG Superlites in the irons and while they felt good they didn't suit my ball flight where finding the right Nippon in the end has changed things dramatically both in terms of flight and feedback from the shaft. The Superlites definately feel firmer than standard DG's and are that way in the tip. Someone using S300 in normal DG's could easily use R300 in the Superlites. This is a common mistake guys are making fitting this shaft, S300 in normal DG does not necessarily mean S300 in Superlites. Hope this helps.

    Spalding,

    Can't agree with you more. I use S3 in the normal DG and R3 in the Superlite.

    I like the Nippons. I only find trouble with them when I get a little quick at downswing transition, but that certainly isn't the fault of the shaft. Smooth feeling shaft, IMO, with little vibration, and a nice high (but not ballooning) ballflight.

    thanks mate, i appreciate the comments

    I'm keen to try these shafts at some stage, either in my irons, or in a demo set.
