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!!
