  • “I have put Zelos into a Callaway Apex iron & the signs are good !! Three people have tested against another Apex with UST Recoil graphite shaft & found your steel shaft to feel better ! The customers couldn't quite tell me why it felt better but they said there was, "something good about it…" The Zelos seems to have tighter dispersion & higher trajectory ! Customers also preferred the thought of a steel shaft to graphite !” “…to introduce him to Zelos 7. He liked the shaft and we had the chance to rest with a customer he had with him. His customer had Mizuno irons with KBS Tour 90 shafts. Comparing his # 6 iron with a Bridgestone # 6 iron with Zelos 7 R flex the Zelos was straighter, longer and felt better than what he was using. Encouraging feedback! A senior golfer trying for his Senior tour card also tested it and was carrying 166 yards with no effort. Again good feedback.”

  • “Well I must say I will be having a set for my own use of those shafts if the whole set performs how well this baby did today, I even had a pal of mine come over and he gave it a go he was gob smacked, we both averaged 10yds longer carry, and the dispersion was still reasonable. His comment was "wow it feels so easy and smooth to hit", me personally just was staggered on how well it performed and how nice and easy it was to use, and another amazing feel factor was for a Stiff flex shaft and how lite it is, it didn't feel like an unstable shaft at all, it just worked seamlessly. So I think you boys at Nippon deserve an award for that one, I think that will go well for you. Honestly we are both amazed with the quality and performance, we tried hitting it harder to see if it buckled under pressure but it still performed but the best result were from nice timed tempo shots and it was just effortless.”

  • “A local clubbuilder had a ZELOS 7 R flex 6 iron club to test. I spoke to him today and he is also considering changing from his MODUS3 Tour 120 X flex to ZELOS 7! He plays off 4 handicap. He gave the club to another pro who "waggled" the club and said "I can't hit this". Wayne said just go ahead and try. Again his response was one of surprise. His comment was that "it feels so smooth and flexible through the swing, but at impact it behaved the way I would expect something like an X flex shaft to perform".”

  • “@NipponShaft Congratulations on the #Zelos7 The smoothest most stable shaft I have used. #PGAShow Would love to test further. - 18 Feb “ Club Professional (Andrew Waple of Pure Gravity Golf) “Those shafts seem pretty amazing. Dad found extra clubhead speed and ball speed along with a better flight for a 6 iron. I should think with a proper ball the difference would be more than the 10 yards carry at the range last night. He wants to change shafts right away, so please can you put me down for 5-Pw plus an extra 9 and 8 iron when you get them in. Very impressive”

    Club Professional (Alexander Toth @AlexTothGolf)

  • “I have had a shot with the shaft this morning ? very smooth feeling and a good sense of release through impact, definitely a more responsive and softer feeling shaft than the 850GH. Interesting balance through the club as although the Swing Weight was pretty light that James built it to it felt quite club head weighted ? is it quite a tip-balanced shaft?”

    Club Professional (Simon Cooper from Precision Golf)

  • “I took the 3 irons that you left here out and hit them this weekend and am thrilled with the performance of the Zelos 7!!! I was at an exclusive private club and had some people who were on the range hit them too and they were very impressed.”

    Clubfitter (Sue O’Connor from Cool Clubs)

  • “Yes I’ve tested them with 2 people so far with surprising results. Shot dispersion is better, Launch angle higher, About 5-8 yards further. Better feel through strike, Feels a more powerful strike.”
