The Nippon N.S.Pro MODUS3 Tour 120 irons shaft has become one of Nippon’s best sellers.  The design is unique. And that design has now been used in a driver shaft. It is different enough that I cannot comment without testing it.  My first look was with a model that was too soft. Stay tuned, there will be more testing soon.

The closest Ei match is the Graphite Design TourAD DI and the Mitsubishi Series G Ultralight. The Modus Tour 120 profile was uniquely different and has become one of my favorite shafts for low single digit handicap players. When and where it fits, dispersion tightens. The graphic below may look a little bumpy.  These are single shafts profiles, not the averages typically seen in other reviews. The radial quality of this shaft is excellent, The consistency of the bend profile signatures are as good as it gets.

Project X Driver Shaft Review

True Temper Project X & Project X PXv Driver Shafts

The Project X brand name came from Royal Precision. Royal Precision, an iron shaft only company, was acquired by True Temper in 2006. The Project X brand name was part of that purchase. Project X branded driver shafts appeared soon after that purchase.  They use the same stiffness designation as the Project X irons shafts, numbers, rather than letters.  The 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5 & 7.0 numbers designate stiffness.  The original numbering scheme was formula based and came from frequency and length.  The numbering system on the Project X driver shafts, like all other driver shaft stiffness designations I have seen are based on both weight and stiffness.  A heavier 6.0 shaft will also be a stiffer 6,0 shaft.

TTPX Composite Ei.fwI looked at four versions of the Project X driver shaft, the original Blue, the lighter weight Black, the newer, PXV Tour52 and the PXV.
