New Addition to the N.S. PRO Regio Formula + Graphite Series Is Aimed at Giving Golfers the Same “Feel” with Irons and Woods
CARLSBAD, Calif. – Nippon Shaft today introduced its new N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB+ graphite driver shaft, providing a harmonious shaft lineup for players who use the N.S. PRO MODUS³ HYBRID and the N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR 105 and/or TOUR 125 steel shafts.
The introduction of the Formula MB+ completes the N.S. PRO Regio Formula+ driver shaft series, meaning that each N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR iron model now has a corresponding driver shaft. The company’s goal is to provide golfers with a similar feel and performance so that they may swing confidently in any setting, according to a company spokesman.
The Regio Formula B+ driver shaft matches the performance of the N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR 120 while the Regio Formula M+ matches the N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR 130.
“Nippon Shaft is proud to introduce the new N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB+ graphite driver shaft,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “With the completion of the Formula + series, golfers now can have a driver shaft that works in perfect harmony with their Nippon Shaft steel shafts irrespective of their weight or configuration.”
The 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, according to Fukuda. “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,” Fukuda said.
The N.S. PRO Regio Formula MB+ graphite driver shaft produces higher ball speed and better ball control without sacrificing traditional feel and/or consistent performance, according to Fukuda. This is achieved by adding an ultra-high elasticity carbon sheet to the length of the shaft thereby suppressing the “twist” of the head that occurs during a swing, Fukuda said.
The shaft is scheduled for release in Japan on January 15 with full global release set for the end of January.
More than 200 players on the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, European Tour and Korn Ferry Tour use Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ series steel shafts to help gain their desired distance, accuracy and trajectory.
Nippon Shaft products are available globally either as stock or custom shafts in many of the world’s top iron brands. Details of these can be found at www.nipponshaft.com
