Their website has been down for a while. Anyone know what's up?
Doubt it, they just came out with the nemesys and I heard its selling well.
The Nemesys is not an Oban shaft, it is a VA shaft. Victor Afable (VA), was the chief engineer at Oban and left to start VA.

Whoops my mistake. Guess oban hasn't really come out with anything new ina while. Love there iron shafts
Glad to hear. Been playing a Kiyoshi purple for a long time and love that shaft. Their website has been down for a while.
An "Obama" shaft? Spell check issues?
Ugh. F’in spell check.
Spell check is your ****. 😉
Wouldn't surprise me if they did go under. When is the last offering from them that has any pub at all? Heck, when was the last time they even released a new shaft?
Mitsubishi/Aldila and Fujikura own the shaft game right now. Oban makes good shafts but I haven't seen anything new from them in a while.
Maybe not - looks like a large deficit may have caught up with them!
Warning! Generic comment not intended to reflect any particular political view!
I'm hoping this isn't the case.
I don't have much to offer aside from they did have significant presence with their booth at the PGA show this year.
They had a booth @ this year's PGA show...
Just like the rest, one of the big boys will buy them up!?
I've heard from a reliable source that they are not Bankrupt, just some website challenges.
Their site should be back up and running soon from what I am told.
I'm sure they still have enough presence on other tours other than PGA to keep them afloat. It's true they aren't getting much mainstream attention with all the work Fuji, MCA and TT has got going on, but they are still solid shafts.
Oban and VA make phenomenal shafts.
Oh no. If they go out of business what iron shaft will Club Champion fit every person into?
Ha...was going to say the same thing Adam! Maybe some other $50 per shaft option...
Very true. If it wasn’t for CC, companies like Oban, Veylix, and maybe even VA would be done. All good shafts, but without Tour presence and new innovations in design, they are all becoming CC exclusive products.
That’s VA and Accra. Never heard of someone getting fitted at CC who didn’t have an Accra recommended somewhere in the bag.
Website is back up and running.
Still Accra. Always Accra.
I've never had a CC try to unload an Oban on me, but good grief they try to unload Accra and Steelfiber on anyone and everyone I've ever known to get fitted there.
Website is back up. Doubt they are going out of business.
Ralph Reichert is a cool dude (and a good golfer). If you ever get a chance to meet him, do it.
We had dinner with them at the PGA Show. I'm pretty sure they're still OK. 😀
