Mizuno has selected Nippon Shaft’s N.S. PRO MODUS3 TOUR 105 to be the stock steel shaft worldwide for its new JPX-900 Hot Metal irons, which are designed to offer more forgiveness and distance to golfers who play them.
David Llewellyn, Director Research & Development for Mizuno USA commented, “For the JPX-900 HOT METAL, the N.S. PRO MODUS³ TOUR 105 gave us the perfect combination of lightweight steel shaft performance with a high level of solid feel and control. Also, this shaft is a great addition to our custom fitting program and will be available in all our models at no up charge, through our network of Performance Fitting Systems.”
This marks the first time Mizuno has offered the N.S. PRO MODUS3 TOUR 105 as a stock or custom shaft, according to Hiro Fukuda, Sales and Marketing for Nippon Shaft.
“Nippon Shaft is very pleased that Mizuno, one of the most respected brands in sports, will offer our N.S.
