These are good shafts. I did an experiment with the Zelos steel hybrid shafts. Was pretty good but i decided to go back to graphite.

I am scratching my head on how little applications this thread has so far.

Shafts are tough; you have to have someone willing to assemble a set of clubs; either their gamers or acquire some heads/another set

I know, but it is an opportunity to both test a great product and get the work on club making a little bit.

You make a good point but shafts are an afterthought for most people except on the driver.

Just in case it matters. Testers will have the choice of sending their irons to Nippon to have the shafts installed or the shafts sent to them if they wish to do the work themselves or locally. 
 

Gave this the weekend for s few more entries.  Will be choosing early in the week.

Tough with most shafts being a specific targeted group. Cool technology here though!

Congratulations guys!!  I will be an interested bystander.  My Bridgestone irons came with the Zelos 8 shaft and I have been impressed with the height I get over other steel shafts.  I wasn't sure if it was just a good fit for the iron heads or if similar results are achieved with any club head.  Good luck with the test.
