NIPPON SHAFT INTRODUCES WORLD’S LIGHTEST CONSTANT-WEIGHT STEEL SHAFT

New ZELOS 7 Combines the Best Features of Graphite with the Benefits of a 100% Steel Shaft

CARLSBAD, Calif. (March 15, 2014) – The company that quietly revolutionized the golf equipment industry by perfecting the first sub-100 gram constant-weight steel shaft, will release the world’s lightest constant-weight steel shaft on April 1, 2014 in Australia, Europe and the USA.

“The N.S. PRO ZELOS 7 is a 100 percent-steel shaft, but it is designed to mirror the best qualities of graphite shafts,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for the global company.  “Nippon Shaft is very proud of our engineering and design staff, which set out to make the ZELOS 7 in order to help make the game of golf more enjoyable for as many people as possible.”

The ZELOS 7 is aimed at golfers whose 7-iron swing speeds measure 75 miles-an-hour or less, estimated to be 80 percent of the world’s golfers, including some pros.  The shafts will be available in 3-iron through wedge, measuring 38.5-35.0 inches in length and featuring a low kick point. The regular flex shaft weighs 74 grams while the stiff flex weighs 76 grams.  Constant weighting means each iron will weigh the same regardless of its length.  The ZELOS 7 shaft will be softer than a graphite shaft from the tip to the butt end of the club.
