2020 Official Member Review: Nippon Modus GOST Hybrid Shaft


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I only had one opportunity to use my 3h today, and I shanked it badly. I won’t blame that on the shaft though, it was all me.

I’ll try to put it in play a bit more later this week. I should be able to get out either Thursday or Friday in the afternoon.

Nippon GOST Hybrid Shaft Review June 21, 2020 by Jmikecpa First off, I would like to thank MGS and Nippon for the opportunity to review this shaft.  I have been fortunate to do several reviews

I want to try one but $250 on a blind test is rough if it doesn't work out haha. Is there a dollar shaft club yet?

Only hit my GOST hybrid four times during the round today.  Three were good and one was a horrible swing that only went 100 yards.  Oops.

The biggest story from the round is how horrible the greens were.  The head greenskeeper is blaming the wet spring for the conditions; but no other course in the area is like this.  It looks like something you would see from Club Pro Guy on Twitter!

Here are the two greens that I three-putted today.

Yikes! That looks like some sort of disease. Hopefully they can rejuvenate them before the hot summer months.

I hit the hybrid once today. #2 hole at Brea Creek. The ball flight and distance were exactly what I was expecting. Although my trajectory is still lower than I would like it is a big improvement over my original shaft.

This is a view from the #2 tee box. The green is across the creek on the right.

Oh jease that is bad. What kind of grass do you know? Also has it been really hot and humid? Looks like Pythium Blight because of how much real estate it is taking up and the water build up.

That's the worst part; no one at the course is owning up to it and explaining what happened and how they are going to fix it.  Someone said the head pro blamed a wet spring on the greens, but no other course in the area looks like this.  It also definitely was not hot/humid in Wisconsin.

The good news is the crappy greens don't really have any effect on my GOST testing.  If anything I'm more likely to be aggressive with the hybrid on par 5's knowing that the only way I can make birdie is if I get extremely close to the pin to eliminate the Plinko greens.

Still sucks that no one is owning up to it. We have a course here that used to be fantastic until the owner didn’t want to put money into it to keep it up. Then he started blaming everyone else for the conditions. It used to host some state AM events too.

Took a lesson last week and got some things back in line with my swing and was finally able to handle this shaft. Based on the wind at my club I either hit hybrid five or six times a round or once or twice. On Sunday I got to hit it once from the fairway. On the par 5 fifth hole I had 261 flag and 249 from in a left to right wind that was helping slightly. Hit a nice high cut that flew 250 and landed like a butterfly with broken wings. This could be a winner if my swing can hold up to it.

Sounds like an awesome shot.  Do you think it's something you could have pulled off with your old shaft or with this a GOST speciality?

I'm looking to finalize my data next week.  Between indoor shots with my Skytrak and outdoors with Arccos I have over 60 shots currently tracked.  To help with a final push before crossing the finish line I'm playing 27 holes tomorrow, 18 Saturday, and 18 more on Sunday.  If I don't have good data by the end of the weekend I don't think there's any hope for me at all.

I could have hit it with the other shaft I have for my hybrid. The shaft I got fit for was a KBS Proto 95x that is tipped an inch, which is a pretty stout shaft. The biggest difference that I am finding is if I don’t have the speed that I am used to the GOST is a bit much to handle. Reminds of a smoother feeling HZRDUS black.

Played 63 holes over the last four days.  27 on Thursday, 18 Saturday, and 18 on Sunday.  I hit 14 Arccos tracked shots with my GOST hybrid shaft over that time so the data is looking really good right now.  I'm hoping to finish up my official review later this week.

The shaft is definitely a quality product, but did it beat my old Fujikura ATMOS shaft?  Is it worth the $250 MSRP???  Results coming soon!

@Jmikecpa - How is the feel and performance compared to some of the Tour AD products?  I'm looking at a new shaft for my U85.  I currently have the KBS Proto in there, but I'm looking at the Tour AD DI.  I didn't know if the GOST would be able to go head-to-head with Graphite Design.

Range day today. It’s been difficult getting the hybrid in play on my weekly one or two rounds since the pandemic hit. So I get the most work with it on the range. Most rounds I may have one or two chances to use it. And at least one will be a grounder to short.

 

The good news is that in spite of that I am still seeing much better results than I did with my original shaft. My shots are pretty straight. No severe hooks or slices. But still a fairly low trajectory. Still, when I hit it flush, and sometimes even when I do not, I am getting 165-175 yards distance. That is exactly what I need this club for. Liking the feel of the stiffer shaft.
