  1. According to Nippon’s website, the Modus 115 Wedge flex comes in at 122g. Comparable weights (120g) from the above list would include: any of the KBS’s in Stiff (except the High Rev 2.0 which comes in at 125g), Project X 6.0, or Nippon Modus 120 X. 

  2. If the time and cost commitments of a fitting/ordering new clubs don't bother you, I would recommend that option. A 5-year layoff, let alone any latent injuries or discomfort from an accident, is enough to make me wonder if I'm going to need something quite different than I was used to playing. Glad that you're back playing, and I'd do yourself a favor and see a fitter.

    Last year MGS was testing golf balls via robot testing. The testing team noted several balls had erratic performance so they cut them open and noted the cores weren’t centered.

    For years people floated or spun balls to find these outliers to avoid using them. Based on that there must have been some testing to understand the impact of these balls being out of balance.

    I personally haven’t seen any testing that took a known “bad” ball and did a deep dive into performance evaluation. Based on that, it is impossible to know the extent of performance impact and if the golfer would be able to decipher if the issue was swing or ball.

    If it didn’t cause a performance issue, why don’t the manufacturers just come out and say it isn’t a big deal.

    I’d imagine the optics of saying that their balls lacked quality control but still performed well are bad. I’d just be interested to see the tangible performance differences. If you gave 10 golfers perfect and off-center cores, how does it affect distance, spin, consistency, etc. in their wedges, irons, and woods? Just a thought.

  4. I was honestly surprised to all the negative reactions to the ball after the test. It’s one thing if these were already selling at $30/dozen, but at HALF of that, I still think it’s an unbelievable deal.

    Call me a conspiracy theorist, but have there been tests, on MGS or anywhere else, that show the performance issues caused by “bad balls”? I’m not so sure that the majority of defects in a batch of balls would be noticeable to anyone but the tour pro.

  5. Are you looking at a particular model or manufacturer? Companies like Cobra and Titleist are probably not releasing their new woods until late in the season or the offseason. I’d say wait if you’re interested in those. The Titleist TS series are discounted now, though. If you don’t think you can get significant practice in over the winter with the new clubs, I’d say wait. But if you can get to the range often, I’d take advantage of the discounted models now.

    Does anyone have any input on whether its worth waiting till next year to upgrade my 3 wood now or wait until for the 2021 releases. I currently game a Cobra Comp 3 wood so technology wise everything is going to be better than what I currently have.

    The problem with this dilemma is that is will ALWAYS happen, regardless of when you purchase your clubs; there are always going to be new clubs on the horizon. For me, it comes down to one thing: how important your budget is to you. If budget plays a big part in your decision, I'd buy when the current year's model's price drops. If budget doesn't matter, then go ahead and wait for the new models! There shouldn't be a huge leap in technology between the two years. But, remember, no matter when you choose to upgrade, this problem is bound to arise!

  7. I'm not sure what to tell you about them besides what you can learn by googling them. They're definitely on the heavier end as far as driver and fairway wood shafts go, but, at your swing speed, you could even go heavier.

    The shafts have different launch profiles, as @csamsh said. If you want a lower launch on your driver and a higher launch on your fairway woods, the combo seems okay. If you'd prefer lower, I'd recommend you go with the Atmos Blue or Black variants. At your swing speed, though, I'd imagine it would be difficult to find heavy, stiff shafts that don't launch low.

  8. I know you are probably comfortable with the S300's, but DON'T BE AFRAID TO TRY NEW AND DIFFERENT SHAFTS. I think you might be surprised by the feel and performance of the lightweight shafts that are made these days. Enjoy the experimentation; it's a big part of the fun for me!

    Check out the IG page for MGS, there are some in hand pics there.  There definitely are 5 weight ports.  A neutral and a h1, h2, t1 and t2 
     

    I thought the could have come up with something a bit more marketable, even d1,d2 and f1 and f2 would have made since  or min draw and fade and max draw and fade  

    But looking forward to seeing snd hearing more  

     

    It's possible that they change in "lettering" could be a marketing strategy toward the stronger player. I'd imagine the stronger player would prefer "toe and heel" instead of "fade and draw," as "fade and draw" implies that they can't control their shot shape! That's just my guess, but I do think they have the perfect combination of classic, minimal looks and tech. Sign me up!

  10. Hi Evreyone,

    I am currently in the market for new iron shafts, and I'm a big fan of the Modus 120 X. Before I bite the bullet and purchase them, however, I would like to try them in TX flex. Does anyone have any recommendations for testing the tour variant flexes? I haven't been able to find them at any fitters. Thanks!

  11. I wouldn't be surprised if it came out after the release of the new Pro V1 line. Considering they're still widely considered the golf ball gold standard, it would seem like a mistake not to include the new versions.

    Hey all. Just joined the Forum! I have had the Mevo for about a month now. I'm struggling with getting it to consistently record shots either at a range or in my yard with a net. Has anyone else had similar issues? In order to get any readings, I have to have it 4 feet or less from the ball position (not 6-7 like the instructions say). One day I was able to track 32/48 shots and very next day, same setup (net in yard) I couldn't get it to register a single shot. Their customer support seems be severely lacking as well. 

    My experience has been that if there is a completely flat and uniform surface between the Mevo and the ball (such as a flat driveway), 6 feet works well. If there isn't, around 4 feet works best. Also, at 4 feet, I find that it doesn't work well when you place the Mevo directly behind the ball; you should place it ~3-4 inches above or below the ball, depending on your handedness and shot shape.

  13. Hi Everyone,

    I’ve been leaning more lately into my gear-junkie tendencies, and I’m trying to try as many iron shafts as I can. Beyond paying for a fitting and testing 3-5 shafts, what would you recommend is the best way for me to get to hit the widest variety of iron shafts I can? Thanks!
