  1. I got rid of my set gap wedge a while ago, and ended up regretting it. Tried a Maltby DBM gap wedge to fill the set but just doesn't work out for me compared to my 50 deg rtx4. Has a Nippon Modus 120 X flex shaft. Playing length is 36" and lie 62 deg. Also has a GP MCC +4 Grey standard grip. $75 shipped
  2. Testers Wanted (3) One of the ongoing debates, or maybe decisions among golfers is graphite or steel for iron shafts. It was long ago decided that graphite is the way to go for drivers, fairway woods and hybrids. But the use of steel in the iron category--maybe due to the name--who know, is still holding strong as the most common material used in most sets of irons on the market. With the ever increasing models of graphite and it's lighter weight benefits in the marketplace, steel has fought back with technology and new materials to offer some of the same benefits as steel--namely weight. Enter Nippon with the N.S. Pro Zelos model. A true lightweight steel that offers some of the benefits of graphite--mainly increased speed due to a lighter weight. And, just as Nippon has multiple models in the very successful Modus lineup, it offers three different models in the Zelos line. Zelos 6 is the lightest coming in at 68 grams Zelos 7 offers a range of 73 to 77 grams depending on the flex Zelos 8 comes in 84 or 87 gram for a bit heavier feel, but still very much in the lightweight category for an iron shaft. You can click Here to see the details of each model. How To Apply Link to our Here We will be choosing one tester for each model. In a post below, please provide the following information-DO NOT QUOTE this post when applying! Per the request of Nippon the testing is open to U.S. residents. Name/City State Zelos Model & Flex You Wish To Test Swing Speed Current Shaft/Flex In Use That's it! We'll be choosing the testers sometime next week, so check back and see if you have been chosen. Note: please apply one once; multiple entries will be removed. If you'd like to have a discussion regarding the clubs or other things related to them please start a new thread.
  3. Just reading the Title makes me smile. I was fitted over 10 years ago and ended up with S300 shafts. I am getting myself a birthday gift and new irons are on the list. I am going to go hit a bunch of irons in a couple of weeks and looking for a little direction with new shafts. My swing speed and overall swing is the same but I am now seeing other options like Nippon or KBS. I hit the ball mid to high with my irons so just trying to get a feel of what would be on par with the S300.
  4. Hi All, So last spring I went to True Spec Golf and got a full bag fitting. The only clubs not fitted were the Ping Wedges and the putter. I just changed the shaft in the putter last week to The Stability Shaft and regripped the bag with Lamkin Sonar Tour Calibrate. I'm pretty sure it's the Indian not the arrow now. Here's all the deets. IRONS Apex 19 5-AW Shafts NIPPON NS950 S 5I WEDGES PING Glide 2.0 Stealth 54° & 58° SS DRIVER M6 9° Shaft FUJIKURA TSG PRO XLR8 61 S 3 WOOD M6 Shaft OBAN ISAWA RED 75 04 HYBRIDS cobra King F9 Speedback 3&4 Shafts KBS TOUR HB GRAPHITE 75 R PUTTER ER2cs 370gr Shaft The Stability Shaft Lamkin Sonar+ Tour Calibrate Standard Golf Grips I also use Garmin Approach S62 and TecTecTec Range Finder. And a SkyTrak launch monitor for the three times a week or so I hit the mat.
  5. Nippon recently launched their G.O.S.T shaft and while it looks great I feel I am curious to has how it performs. I have never really found a shaft for a hybrid or utility that had the right weight or feel. The Mitsubishi Tensei pro hybrid shafts don’t feel like the woods and I game the nippon 120x and it would have to be a major improvement for me to change. curious if anyone has had a chance to hit the shaft and provide some feed back to feel and performance. Nippon makes great products but shelling out $250+ dollars for this is a big commitment.
  6. Forged irons with Modus shafts for cheap!!!! Up for sale are a set of Bridgestone J15 DF Irons 4-pw. Grips are standard MCC +4 in red in near new condition. Shafts are Modus 120 Stiff. Specs are standard. Great irons, I'm just moving to a set with 120 X shafts. Price is $280 shipped!
  7. Ok so I consider myself relatively knowledgeable about equipment and in particular shafts. But sometimes I'm not sure what differentiates one shaft from another and by how much. My knowledge is mostly of low launch stuff. The goal right now is to find something to go into the Hogan PTx irons. The KBS tourV 120x just feel really soft to me and aren't working out. This is going to be kind of difficult because I want super low launch and spin from 6i/7i-pw and something a little higher launch in the 4i/5i and maybe 6i. The flighted sets all seem to be too soft from what I understand and have tried. Not many high swing speed players want flighted shafts and while I probably don't need them, these irons may or may not(depending how testing goes) be in the bag for a long time to come so its worth it to look. I understand the the DG AMT aren't flighted and are just weight sorted and get heavier through the set so that may be an option. DG Pro sort of peaked my interest as well. What about DG black gold? Is that just an older version of DG pro? I don't know as much about some of the more exotic shaft options but I know Nippon Super Peening Blue have been recommended to me in the past. About me: SS with the driver is 120ish and 6i is around 100. Transition is on the faster side but working on it. Previous shafts that I've used that have worked well in the past are: PX 6.5/7.0 DGx100/X7 KBS Ctaper130x Any input would be helpful. And yes i'm definitely a tinkerer, I know.
  8. I'm thinking about a set of Mizuno MP-54's, and Nippon steel shafts - 950's. I've never hit these shafts - and wondered what y'all think of them? Any insight to trajectory, etc.?
