Shimada Iron Golf Shaft

In response to a request from a viewer, the Shimada iron shaft data available on my old shaft review page has been resurrected. it has been some time since I measured these and some of the data now shown in the current reviews is not available. The review samples are no where to be found in the shop.


The profiles look much like the new TourTemper XP 95 S flex design, That same design is available in different weights and stiffness.

    i have 2 questions … is there a big difference between ns pro 1050GH S and the shimada tour lite S ? is the Shimada tour lite a constant weight shaft at 101g or 105.8g (111g uncut according to the official website) ? thanks for your feedback 🙂

    • The Shimada’s have softer butts than the Nippons. I do not have data on the parallel’s so I cannot answer your second question
