Nippon Shaft launches world's lightest steel shaft - N.S. PRO Zelos 6

The company that gave golfers the first sub-100-gram constant weight steel shaft is now releasing the world’s lightest constant weight steel shaft, the N.S.PRO Zelos 6, which checks in at a mere 68.5 grams.

Available from today, the N.S.PRO Zelos 6 was introduced to the golf industry in January at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show to much fanfare and was tested thoroughly by many golf visitors who were impressed with the shaft’s stability and performance.

“As the lightest steel shaft ever made, the N.S. PRO Zelos 6 showcases Nippon Shaft’s unique design and engineering ability and our continuous effort to design shafts for golfers of all profiles,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for the Japan-based company.

The ultralight-weight Zelos 6 is aimed at golfers who have driver swing speeds less than 75mph range and whose drives travel 175 yards or less, according to Fukuda.

Unlike similarly weighted graphite shafts, the Zelos 6 features a proprietary spring steel that gives the shaft the stability characteristic of steel, Fukuda said. The Zelos 6 also features ease of launch, high trajectory ,and excellent spin, which helps shots hold the green.

“The Zelos family of shafts grew out of our Nippon Shaft philosophy that we want our customers to Play Steel for Life,” said Fukuda.

Nippon Shaft products are available globally either as stock or custom shafts in many of the world’s top iron brands.  In addition, Nippon Shaft products are available through Nippon Shaft’s dedicated global club fitter network.
