oh it's paid... paid about 3K for my epon's with shimada shafts.

I like Shimada NINE9, they feel very smooth, I think they are very similar to Oban CT. However, when I assembly them to my irons, it seems they have a bit smaller diameter to fit into 355 hosel. I hav

Great shaft company.  I play different shafts, the tours, however I highly recommend the quality of the shafts from Shimada.

I'd had Shimada tour lites in the past and found them to be very smooth and consistent. I know that's a different model than you're asking, but I think you'll really find them to be fantastic shafts.

I recently pulled the Shimada Tour Lite from my Vega VDC01 and had stiff Modus 3 Tour 105's fitted.  I loved the Shimada's, the feel was exceptional, but for me, and this is very personal, because my swing has improved recently (lost weight, added strength and improved flexibility) I needed something that did not unload as fast.  For me, (7-iron swing speed ~85mph) the Modus 3 are a little stiffer with less kick, so gives me closer dispersion and a slightly lower launch angle (it has also resulted in 5-10 yards more, but that was not the main reason for the change - it's the closer dispersion that made it worthwhile for me).  I felt guilty pulling the Shimadas, they have such great feel, but it didn't last long as my handicap dropped and they went to a good home on someone else's Titlests

I tried both the Shimada's and the Nippon 105's and I'm able to get a higher ball and closer dipersionwith the Shimada's which I wanted for the hard packed greens in the desert.  I've only tried them on the trackman and hopefully will be able to test them on the course in the next few days.

I played Shimada tour lites in 2 sets of pxg 311p I  had . 1 set was taper ; the other was parallel. The tapers felt better and were  one of the best I Have  EVER USED COMPARED  to  modus tour 105  and Nippon 950. Actually sorry I SOLD THAT SET UP. I check with cpm machine and sw SCALE  all my clubs and that set was very good.You cant go wrong with their product. Very smooth ; and great dispersion.

I'm loving the Shimada shafts so far.  I'm getting a higher ball trajectory and loving it.  I would give them a try on the course.
