Doggers61 here, am currently in a dilemma! Have played stiff shafts for ever, spinal damage now means I can not load the golf shaft properly anymore, does anybody know what shafts would now work for me? I have gone from 105 driver swing to a gentle 80 to 85 mph at best. 
I would love to test the new Zelos shafts in a very light weight. Would the extreme lightness make it more difficult to control the head path? Would excess lightness create more stress on the back or more likely would a light shaft allow an easy swing with more swing speed naturally. Sorry, seem to have more questions than answers!!!!!

Currently playing Ping i500’s, TaylorMade Sim Driver, callaway driving irons/ 18/21/24 degrees, Japanese putter( Sukira forged) TaylorMade high toe wedges. Play twice a week and practice when ever I can

Testers Wanted (3)

One of the ongoing debates, or maybe decisions among golfers is graphite or steel for iron shafts. It was long ago decided that graphite is the way to go for drivers, fairway woods and hybrids. But the use of steel in the iron category--maybe due to the name--who know, is still holding strong as the most common material used in most sets of irons on the market.   

With the ever increasing models of graphite and it's lighter weight benefits in the marketplace, steel has fought back with technology and new materials to offer some of the same benefits as steel--namely weight. 

Enter Nippon with the N.S. Pro Zelos model.   A true lightweight steel that offers some of the benefits of graphite--mainly increased speed due to a lighter weight. And, just as Nippon has multiple models in the very successful Modus lineup, it offers three different models in the Zelos line. 

Zelos 6 is the lightest coming in at 68 grams

Zelos 7 offers a range of 73 to 77 grams depending on the flex

Zelos 8 comes in 84 or 87 gram for a bit heavier feel, but still very much in the lightweight category for an iron shaft. 

You can click Here to see the details of each model.
