Aldila NV Green Shaft Review – Specs, Flex, Weight
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?
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.
