Nippon NS Pro 950 Vs Dynamic Gold S200 Shaft Comparison
Today, we test a tour-weighted classic, the Dynamic Gold S200 vs a steel shaft intended to perform like a graphite shaft, the NS Pro 950.
Nippon NS Pro 950GH Shaft Overview
“I tested the NS Pro 950 in stiff flex at 95 grams.”
I was amazed at the feel of this shaft. The flex moves seamlessly from the butt to the club head.
I was even more stunned when I found out this was a 1.8 torque shaft. It feels a lot more fluid and the kick is very gradual.
The launch is mid high and it can’t be worked low. But it wasn’t intended for penetrating trajectory anyway.
The NS Pro 950 will help you get the ball in the air and get your club head speed up. This is a great lightweight steel alternative for anyone making the jump from graphite shafts.
Dynamic Gold S200 Shaft Overview
So right off the bat, the S200 is a significantly heavier shaft.
It also has a much stouter profile compared to the NS Pro 950. It was like night and day between these shafts. The S200 launches effortlessly low and keeps spin number in check even on mis-hits.
The S200 also instilled more workability in my shots as well. The kick point is right under the grip area and is only discernible when you are swinging out of your shoes.
The stability is amazing which allows skilled players to hit fades and draws at will.
“If you need to get the ball up in the air, the NS Pro 950 is probably the better shaft for you.
But if you want to be able to hit a variety of shots with consistency, the Dynamic Gold S200 will be more up your alley.”
