Aldila NV Green Shaft Review – Specs, Flex, Weight

Aldila NV Green Shaft

Aldila has been behind some of the best graphite wood shafts in recent memory.

The original NV series was beloved by all kinds of golfers because it essentially had something for everyone.

If you needed higher launch, the NV series delivered.

If you needed lower launch and lower spin, you could find an NV shaft that would suit your needs.

With the latest iteration of the Aldila NV Green shaft, Aldila has made some key improvements. Is it the shaft for you? Find out in the following review.

Aldila NV Green Shaft Overview

I like what Aldila did with the color scheme of the new Aldila NV Green shafts.

Instead of a luminescent lime green finish, they went for a mostly flat black finish.

You still get some green in the “NV” lettering, but overall, the shaft has been toned down colorwise which is something I am all for.

The Aldila NV Green is being offered in a wide array of weights and flexes so again, you are likely to be able to find a shaft that works for you in the Aldila NV Green series.

The Aldila NV Green is advertised as a low spin, low launch shaft.

I’ll get into the performance aspects in a subsequent section but for now, let me just say that it delivers on those fronts.

I tested the Aldila NV Green 75 in 79g specifically and it felt lighter than that for me.

I should have gone up to the 85g weight class but I wasn’t disappointed with the feel overall.

It felt light throughout my swing but never loose. The Aldila NV Green incorporates aerospace-grade prepreg in the tip to counteract the flex in the middle of the shaft.

And I could really feel the prepreg working. No matter how fast I swung or how quick my transition was, the club  head never felt loose or like it was getting ahead of me.

It stayed where I needed it to even as the midsection kick point was noticeable.

Why is the Aldila NV Green So Popular?

Aldila NV Green Shaft1

The Aldila NV Green has earned a reputation for delivering a low spin/launch shaft in a package that feels fast and lighter than it should.

This is honestly one of the most anomalous shafts I have ever tested. With how light it feels, it’s baffling to me that it produced such low spin numbers.

How Does the Aldila NV Green Perform?

To simplify it, the Aldila NV Green performs exactly how it’s supposed to.

I plugged the Aldila NV Green into my test Ping G425 driver which usually produces launch angles in the 12-15 degree range.

With the Aldila NV Green, that range shrunk to 10-12 degrees. And this was right up my alley because I do much better with low launch shafts.

I was able to take my natural swing with this shaft to great results. When warmed up, I have a transition slightly on the aggressive side. But the Aldila NV Green kept up with it.

And while the launch angles were right on the money for me, let’s be honest 10-12 degree launch angles aren’t super impressive. And almost any shaft can be worked down if you’re good enough.

What can’t be faked is spin. My lowest spin rate reading with the Aldila NV Green shaft was 1600 RPMs. I’ll say that again…1600 RPMs.

That was mind-boggling to me. My average spin rate at the end of testing was closer to 1900 RPMs but the fact that I was able to get down to 1600 RPMs was extremely impressive to me.

As a result, the Aldila NV Green shaft helped me shoot arrows down the heart of the fairway on almost every swing.

The Aldila NV Green is offered in 55g, 65g, 75g and 85g weight classes.

The 55g weight class is for sub 70 MPH swingers. The 65g weight class would work for 71-80 MPH swingers.

The 75g weight class is good for 81-90 MPH swingers and the 85g weight class may be suitable for 91-100 MPH swingers.

Why is it So Good?

The Aldila NV Green is good because it allows fast swing speed players to swing even faster without increasing spin rates.

Aldila NV Green First Impressions

Aldila NV Green Shaft2

I thought this shaft was going to be too light to work with my tempo.

That’s how it felt anyway. I’m happy to report that wasn’t the case.

Key Features & Performance

The Aldila NV Green shaft uses multiple layers of aerospace-grade prepreg to stiffen up the tip area.

This has to be what was keeping the spin rates in check because the rest of the shaft felt pretty active.

Aldila NV Green Driver Review

With my test driver, the Aldila NV Green felt fast and light. It produced really good ball speed and kept my launch within a reasonable window.

Aldila NV Green Fairway Wood Review

The launch angles stayed reasonable with my fairway wood. However, I would plug the Aldila NV Green into a more compact fairway wood if I were to make it my gamer.

Who Should Buy it?

The Aldila NV Green is definitely for fast swing speed players who want to be able to push their carry distance even further without losing any accuracy.

The Aldila NV Green plays straight, long and the launch angles stay low so players with aggressive tempos can maintain that lower trajectory that works best for them.
