Nippon Shaft has announced the release of the N.S. PRO MODUS3 Wedge, a newly developed steel wedge shaft that offers optimum short game performance.

Based on feedback from PGA Tour players, the MODUS3 Wedge utilises several of Nippon Shaft’s cutting-edge manufacturing technologies to provide a lower trajectory with less variable spin and excellent directional stability.

Multi Heat Treatment (MHT) technology delivers the optimum feel on short game shots of all distances, while proprietary wall thickness adjustment technology provides high-level stability in terms of spin and direction.

“Based on the popular N.S.PRO WV, the new MODUS3 Wedge is designed to enable players to enjoy more confident approaches with optimised performance that closely matches their imagined trajectory,” said Garry Price, Sales Manager for Nippon Shaft Europe.

“Through the use of MHT, we’ve been able to further refine the unique flex and carry that is the mark of traditional N.S. PRO shafts so that golfers of all abilities can approach the green with superior control,” continued Price.

The MODUS3 Wedge is available in three weights that offer three different characteristics, enabling players to freely choose the shaft that best matches their style and current iron set.

Over the years, Nippon Shaft has recorded hundreds of victories on professional golf tours worldwide, as more and more of the best players around the world have chosen to install their steel iron shafts which are manufactured in Japan to unparalleled quality standards.

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. Details of these can be found at

Nippon Shaft manufactures all of its steel and graphite shafts in a state-of-the-art factory in Komagane, Japan, with the company’s integrated production lines strictly monitored and controlled with thorough checks conducted responsibly through the entire production process. As a result, Nippon Shaft is able to control high product quality – from material selection to final testing.
