Folks, had to re-register with a new username as my previous one was attached to an old work email that I can’t retrieve.

Quick query regarding component availability for custom fit orders. Recently went to a Mizuno Performance centre - knew going in that certain KBS shafts were an issue (C Taper & C Taper Lite).

Got fitted for JPX 921 Forged with Nippon NS Pro 950GH NEO shafts - now being told they won’t be available until June - Fitter knew nothing of this at the time of fitting.

Was at a local range today with an attached golf shop and asked them to make me a demo club up so as to try a different shaft (Nippon NS Pro950 GH) and was told they had taken them out of the cart as Mizuno couldn’t service those orders.

Is anyone else (MPX ?) aware of this? This was the start of an entire new bag fit out, and I want the irons before getting fitted for the hybrids / fairway words…at this rate it will take all year!!! 😭

That shaft is out of stock at the moment. Stiff is due a delivery in June and reg late in August.

Thanks for the update, albeit not good news as I was told by the Performance Centre Rep 8th June..... having ordered on 26th Feb, late August feels like too long to wait.

Pleased to say that the new irons arrived last week!! Two range sessions with them and going well so far!! Few swing flaws to correct that crept in from the old irons that I had (MP59 with KBS Tour - shafts too heavy) - really enjoying being back in lightweight steel with the new version of the NS Pro 950 (still has the familiar kick of the original NS Pro).

Thanks to those who commented / provided updates on the component status.

If only Golfpride did a green version in the normal Tour Velvet Align to match the NEO’s green decal !!😁

Could you live with a grip with a small chevron on it? - If so, you could always try these ...

Hi folks, just been fit for a set of 225 Pro with Nippon 950 GH NEO shafts and was wondering whether there is still a shortage of this shaft?

could any admin/Mizuno staff give me some insight please?

cheers
