Wedge Golf Shafts – Nippon WV Shaft

Nippon WV ImageNippon makes a great dedicated wedge shaft, the N.S Pro WV. It was introduced in 2009 and has been one of my custom fitted wedge shafts since that time. It is one of the higher launch, therefore higher spin wedge shafts available. It is offered in three weights which correspond to increasing stiffness. Those weight options align well with the weights of the N.S Pro line of iron shafts. Using the wedge shaft that is just slightly higher than the weight of the iron shafts have proved to be a good fit.

    I’m wondering whether you’ve got your hands on the limited edition Nippon ns pro modus 3 blue wedge shaft? I understand it has a particular profile different from anything they had out currently. Thanks!

    • I have been quite busy lately and there are boxes of shafts waiting for me. As soon as I work through the piles that are here, I will call for samples.

    I am also very interested in the Nippon pro modus 3 blue wedge shaft. Not only for just feedback from you but any chance to get one. They are impossible for me to get.

    • The blue shaft is simply a limited edition color release of the Modus3 wedge series. I am a Nippon dealer and as of yesterday they were in stock at Nippon. Contact me at if you wish to buy some.
