Nippon Golf and GolfWRX are looking for 4 members to test the N.S. Pro Modus3 Hybrid GOST shaft! This shaft has been talked about a ton in the forum and we want to find four members to test this out and report back to the community! I have hit these already and if you can listen to my podcast review HERE and you can read more about them from our GolfWRX article HERE. Apply now for your chance to be a tester and try out one of the hottest hybrid shafts on the market.

 

About Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3 Hybrid GOST

Hybrids and/or driving irons are increasingly used for precise tee shots requiring distance control and for second shots on longer-distance holes. But steel and graphite shafts both have their advantages and disadvantages – neither is superior overall. As a shaft maker with extensive knowledge of both steel and graphite, Nippon Shaft developed a new hybrid shaft that delivers both higher trajectory and tighter dispersion with pinpoint accuracy.

The key to our success was our patented adhesive technology that allows us to take full advantage of graphite’s design flexibility to ideally integrate steel and graphite. Not only does this composite design compensate for the lack of rigidity in steel, but it combines the solid feel and spin control of steel with the flex control of graphite. In essence, N.S.PRO MODUS3 HYBRID Graphite On Steel Technology results in an ideal hybrid shaft with many of the advantages and none of the disadvantages of steel and graphite.

 

How To Apply

In a post below, answer the following questions

City, State?

Handicap?

I do not own a hybrid, those new SIMs are creating quite a buzz. I may have to buy one just to test the GOST. My 195-215 yardage is probably my worst.
