When the original NV was introduced it quickly became the number one aftermarket golf shaft ever offered, a favorite of Tour pros and amateurs alike. After years of development, ALDILA has created NexGen Micro Laminate Technology - new, even thinner high performance carbon fibers combined with today's advanced fiber resin technology. The result is even more layers of carbon fiber offering maximum consistency and performance. What separated the original NV from the other shafts available was what some referred to as its 'perfect feel'. The 2KNV provides for even better feel and performance. The 2KXV Orange is perfect for those seeking a lower ball flight.
