Well, just sitting here on this beautiful day in Protestlandia, Oregon and wondering if anyone has tried the Shamada/Oban shafts.

 

I have a few 8 irons shafted up in the Nippon 950 Gh and 1050 GH but hearing some excellent reports on the Shamada and Oban extruded shafts.

 

I was super impressed with the 950 GH effortless and long.  8 iron close to 150 on a 53 degree damp day. The 1050 was OK.  

 

Researching  the OBAN by Shimada,  they are  stating  a full extruded shaft without the seam.  Also a ton of subsets for weight and flex in and around a light gram weight.  

 

Going into a 919 Tour head. Lovely!!
