Nippon Modus3 Hybrid Golf Shaft Review

Nippon Modus3 Hybrid Golf Shaft Review

The Nippon Modus3 Hybrid is a new style shaft from Nippon. There is a layer of Composite material over a steel shaft. When you look closely, you can see and feel the steps in the steel shaft. I have been told it has been on tour for over a year. About 30 are in play every week. That is typical of Nippon’s approach to introducing new shafts.

Aldila 2KXV Hybrid Golf Shaft Review

Aldila 2KXV NV Hybrid Golf Shafts Review

The 2KXV NV is not a new shaft. I measured the Orange and Green models in 2016 according to my notes. I did not measure the 2KXV Blue and therefore never published the review. In looking through shafts that had not been reviewed I was sent the review shafts with the 2KXV Blue Driver Shafts. Many of my fitting friends work with these shafts. From what I see in the measurements they are one of the best deals in the market.

Aerotech hls Hybrid Golf Shaft Review

Aerotech hls Hybrid Golf Shaft Review

This measurements for this review were done a long time ago. For some reason they never got published. The AeroTech SteelFiber his hybrid shafts, like most AeroTech products are still in production, unchanged over 5+ years. For a custom club fitter this is a very good thing. The fitter that invests time learning them and money for fitters gets a return on these investments. To his everlasting credit, Chris Hilleray does not often change his models. The old saying, “if it works don’t fix it” comes to mind. Tour acceptance has proven the AeroTech SteelFiber works.

In a recent video Chris Hilleray, president of AeroTech explains the construction of the SteelFiber Golf Shaft. If you do not know the story of how the SteelFiber is made, he tells it better than I can.

Mitsubishi Thump Hybrid Golf Shaft Review

Mitsubishi Diamana Thump Hybrid Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker
The Golf Center at the Highlands, Carrollton Texas

I cannot recall how long the Diamana Thump Hybrid has been in my bag.  I am playing the original 95 gram Thump that was made with a .350 tip. For many years I has been available as an unlisted special order shaft to Mitsubishi Dealers. I have ordered and installed them for many of my fitting clients. At last, the Diamana Thump has been reissued with a .370 tip and new graphics. There are three models, 90S, 90X and 100X.

I have long described the Thump Hybrid as a steel shaft made out of carbon fiber. It sits in the same weight range as mid weight steel. And it is every bit as stiff, if not stiffer than steel in the weight range. The low torque that is an inherent property of steel is built into the Thump. If the $200+ price of a Thump, or other high performance carbon fiber hybrid shafts, is not in your budget then go with steel. However, there are a few reasons you would choose carbon fiber over steel.

The .370 tip fits most all current generation hybrids. No longer will you have to shim the .355 tips of the older design. If you have used the earlier generation you will find the tips to ever so slightly firmer in the new design. Torque is slightly lower as well. It is time to put some new hot face hybrids in my bag.
