Nunchuk Designs Hybrid-Specific Shaft
by John Steinbreder - August 6, 2012

Two years ago, nVentix Golf introduced the Nunchuk 370 precision shaft for drivers and fairway metals, and in 2011 the so-called “one-model-fits-all” shaft garnered three wins and 16 top-five finishes during its inaugural seasons on the PGA and Champions Tours, with more than 40 tour professionals putting it into play. More recently, nVentix rolled out a version of the Nunchuk 370 for hybrids, and company officials say they expect it to be just as successful.

According to Mike McCall, chief executive officer of the privately held, Dallas-based nVentix, the design of the Nunchuk 370 is based on two simple premises – making sure the clubhead is better aligned through theimpact zone and making it easier for golfers to find the sweet spot. To that end, the company developed a technology it calls Tri-Zonal Stability in an effort to reduce the variables that shafts typically introduce to shotmaking, such as twisting and flexing unnecessarily.

With the Nunchuk 370 for hybrids, nVentix has produced a shaft with a wider tip diameter than the 370 model it created for drivers and fairways – and a somewhat shorter length. But it still relies on that concept of having tips and butts that are very stiff and quite resistant to twisting for greater stability and a more flexible center for enhanced energy transfer from the body and hands to the clubhead and ultimately the golf ball.

Sort of like the nunchaku martial arts weapon, which is made in three sections, with a pair of handles connected either by a rope (himo) or a chain (kusari). That rather formidable bit of protection is also called a nunchuk. Which is why the shaft maker gave this product line that name.
