2021 Official Review: Nippon Regio Driver Shafts


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Finally was able to go to the range and do some testing. Used the PRGR unit. thank to @ChasingScratchfor letting me borrow it.

Using a different Driver Head (TourEdge EXS 220) since I'm still waiting on the replacement one (TourEdge EXS Pro), I thought this initial testing was pretty good.

The Ball flight was a little higher than my normal flight, but everything was pretty much a straight and deep ball. There were a few that were pulls every time I tried to give it a little extra on the swing. 
The shaft felt amazingly sturdy, the more comfortable  I got with the swing the more confidence I got to turn on it and since there wasn't the foul ball to worry about.

If I have time tomorrow, I will get about 10-15 swings with my current shaft and document those numbers so we can have a true comparison. 

Hopefully by next week the replacement head will come in I can test it with my regular gamer. (I  expect similar numbers maybe a little better)

I will be taken it out to the course on Sunday which should be fun, long course and an a challenging 18th hole which begs for you to go for it.

Some pretty solid early numbers, hope to be able to seethe comparison to your current shaft

Its a layup hole most of the time, if you happen to be down wind, you may challenge carrying the water , and you hope you can stay right or left of the tree, then you have another 230yds or so to get to an elevated green crossing water again. Its a big number finishing hole if your are not careful.

That 18th hole looks like an absolute beast. Nothing like a finishing up your round on a hole that can kick your teeth in. 

And to all the testers great work on finding ways to get some data for the shafts. It really helps paint a picture of what's going on during the testing process.

I did another session just to gather numbers from my current shaft and compare to the Nippon.
You can see the difference in Balls Speed, Carry/Total yds and smash factor.  Its clear that the Nippon MB+ 65 is a winner.

Balls Speed increase by 8Mphs, Carry Distance up by 16yds and Total yards by 15yds, even the smash factor was up by 0.06.

Ball flight is a little higher than my normal but is hard to gauge since am not using my normal Driver Head. Hoping to get it back by next week.

Ah right. For some reason I read that last one as you having your driver back. 
 

hopefully you’ll see the same results once you do!

Tremendous results from this weekends outing, the shaft and combination with the TS3 held up fantastically, I am a solid 250 carry rolling out into the 260's. I played today and yesterday walked 18 each day, yesterday the pace of play was great for walking which allowed me to conserve some energy. I hit 50% of the fairways and 3-4 were within 1-2 feet from the fairway playing in the first cut. Today I hit 7 fairways alone on the front 9, but fatigue caught ups to me on the back 9. I was roasted with the heat and it showed. my driver took the brunt of it. I chalk it up to fatigue causing the driver to drop off in performance.  I don't have a launch monitor or Arccos currently although I am considering it but I did take some photos on the GRINT lining up my shot and the tee box the best I could to show everyone some of the locations and distances I have hit this weekend. The drive I hit on 8 is one I would consider as a "missile", I really wanted to go all out and cover the bunker, it was probably the first time since getting the shaft on the course where I really let it rip. No disappointment on that drive!

.IMG_0114.jpeg.90ee7c0e54a6f8034dad4fae31ad198b.jpeg

Yesterday this was such a cool drive to hit, the hole plays uphill, they're currently filling in the fairway bunker to the left and seeding over. Earlier in the year when it's windy no chance of reaching the green, the wind holes through the opening and it's right at your face or a cross wind. The woods are behind you so limited chance you are getting much assistance at your back with the wind. It's risk reward, if you are left approaching the green you are looking to be in a green side bunker which are quite steep, If you go right their is a marsh and farther right puts you in the condos. I couldn't have been happier with the results and even funner I couldn't find my ball at first because I had never drove it that far with the wind. I would honestly say it was that well of a struck shot on the face.IMG_0116.jpeg.794ead5f94b44cbdf6457acc19b5d6bb.jpeg

Starting the day off on 1, hell of a shot to get the round going, perfect position, leaving me with a great shot into the green. I don't have much more real estate to work with before I run into the river lol This combo really impressed me this weekend. It even impressed my playing partners. I'll be honest with everyone at 5ft 6 this combo has allowed me to maximize my distance this weekend to keep up with some stout guys!

IMG_0113.jpeg.8f69cc75e8ba65188d9db733b0699801.jpeg

The best part about hole 9, man it landed right on the 150 yard marker. Taking that marker out and tossing it aside for my shot felt amazing. Really culminated all the hard work I had been putting in with my driver.

the Shaft appears to keep the load longer, so as you finally releasing it ball seems to jump of the driver.  Feels really sturdy , this was a heavier shaft than my Tensi CK Orange but it feels lighter.

Looks like some great results with the driver shaft combo so far. keep the results coming. The distance gains are great too. Do you feel that it is mostly from some better timing, a bit more confidence, a little bit of both. Either way its great.

Played yesterday at The Bridges in Gunther, TX,. front 9 driver was even better than in the range its windy there and the ball flight was penetrating thru the winds. 

Back 9, well torrential down pour of rain, we had to stop and hide by the trees in between heavy down pours, wait until it was steady rain and the rivers on the fairways where down to small streams.
Shaft performed even better in the rain, didn't expect to be doing a test in the rain but it happen.
By the end of the day I hit 71% of fairways, and they ones I missed where just in the edge or I ended up in a fairway bunker.

This weeks heavy rains are expected to continue, one of my home course is underwater already, don't expect any range or course play this week. 
Hopefully next week.

On the good news, my driver head is fixed and will be picking it up this afternoon, Next time am able to hit the driver, it will be with my normal setup. Expect similar or even better numbers.

Looks like some great results with the driver shaft combo so far. keep the results coming. The distance gains are great too. Do you feel that it is mostly from some better timing, a bit more confidence, a little bit of both. Either way its great.

It’s definitely a combination of both. The timing was less of a factor than the confidence. I didn’t feel a huge drop off in comparison to my Tensei white when it came to timing. Because their isn’t a huge kick point with the Nippon it seemed more seamless of a transition from the Tensei. The shaft definitely performs and I’d be interested to see what the numbers look like when I do a trackman test coming up.

Sounds great and that confidence is a huge thing. Getting there helps produce that free flowing swing with that little extra speed.

So finally got the head back, hit a few times at the facilities my last numbers before leaving were very good. Still need to tweak a bit. But its an improvement already.
