I've used both the 950 and the 1150 and they are both great quality shafts!  With the 1150 being slightly heavier, it helped smooth out my tempo and keep the ball down a fraction.

Nippon are great shafts!

Thank God for that! I was beginning to wonder if my shafts were correctly fitted or whether KBS was an option?

The Nippon 1150 is a nice shaft, it is one of the recommendations for my DNA so I have tested it several times.

The Nippon 1150 is quite different shaft to the Nippon 950 and is distinct in the Nippon NS Pro line. It has a stronger butt and tip section than the Nippon 950. In DNA terms it fits a player with a mid tempo, mid to mid release swing, where the Nippon 950 is the perfect match for the smooth tempo player with an early release.

It should launch a little lower and spin just a little less than the Nippon 950. It has a very similar bend profile to the DYNAMIC Gold XP which is stock with some other OEM's.


Funny you mentioned the DNA fittings.  Mine were:


DG XP S300s

Nippon 950 stiffs


KBS Tour stiff softstepped


I had MP64s with the 950s and hit them too high and lost yardarge.  Loved the feel though.  So I took a gamble on 1150s even thought they weren't in the DNA fitting.

I'm in a similar position to Smasher, debated the JPX825 Pros, or the MP59s, but decided to stick with my MP53s for the time being.  A direct replacement/update for the 53s would be marvellous.

Anyone heard anything?

The 53s will be two years into their lifecycle so a replacement wouldn't be a surprise this autumn.

MP53 came out with MP63, which have obviously been replaced by MP64.

I think MPX mentioned that the reason we have not seen a direct MP53 replacement this 'cycle' was that there is not a great gap between MP59 and JPX825 Pro, so no real place for them.  Also our US friends do have the H4 full set.

why dont you reshaft em yourself....its not that hard, buy a sw scale, a vise and a torch...your just glueing 2 pieces of metal togetner...

you can then demo as many shafts as you want, 

once you do a set you will laugh how easy it really is.....just have to get your swingweights correct which is just as simple...scale tells you so its foolproof...

buy some epoxy, ferrules , tipweights, acetone and mineral spirits

it is really surprising how many guys are always changing equipment, shafts etc but dont do their own work when its so simple.....

to do one iron for testing a shaft it takes bout 15-20 min

Just an update.


Got 3 rounds on the MP32s with new 1150 Nippons.  First two rounds were terrible (low 90s) so I thought I mad e a mistake.  Got really mad.  Took my frustration out to the course Tuesday and could not miss with them.  Shot 1 over 73 (personal best) and I'm a 10 handicap!  Hope the swing stays like that for awhile!
