Nippon's N.S. Pro Modus3 iron shaft has risen in popularity on the PGA TOUR, so much so that the company has started to release slight variations of the original shaft, like the N.S. Pro Modus3 LSL (low spin and launch) prototype that was spotted on the practice range at the Safeway Open.
Built on the N.S. Pro Modus3 125 platform, the LSL version produces a more penetrating flight and low spin characteristics while still offering a similar bend profile. The shaft comes in at almost the same weight (125 grams) as well.
At the moment, the prototype is a Tour-only offering. However, that could change in the future depending on the response it receives.
Along with offering the N.S. Pro Modus3 in four weights (105, 120, 125 and 130 grams), the company expanded the line to include a wedge version that features a heat treatment called MHT (multi-heat technology) technology that improves feel around the greens with a low trajectory and less variable spin.
