I'm using KBS Tour (Stiff) shafts now but have been considering some new irons and outfitting them with the modus. Anybody have much experience with one vs the other or other suggestions even??

I went from KBS Tour stiff to Modus 3 120's. As smooth or better, mid ball flight, easy to control and tight dispersion. I'm a half club longer with my Srixon's whether that's the shafts or not, but I'm liking the overall performance a lot.

Love love love Modus shafts. I have KBS Tours in my 745s, which are my second favorite shaft.  If money wasn't an object, I would have Modus's in them.

Ok, so, glowing reviews on modus. Going to try to demo them in the i200 or TM 750.

I love that the Modus 105 is a stock option in the Ping i200s

I've been playing my new Ping i200s with Modus 105 (stiff) shafts all spring. I've played dynamic gold a long time but I'm totally switching to Modus 105...I've not hit so many close iron shots before!

I tried both and went with the KBS tour 90 for the higher higher ball flight--so I guess it depends on if you are looking for on your ball flight. If you want slightly lower, then probably the Nippon.

From the Modus line yes, but the Nippon Pro 950 will play very similar to the KBS Tour 90

I'm using the modus 3 130 x in my Srixons. Had the KBS tour V 120 x in my hogans. I like this shaft a lot better. The 130 get the ball in the air more and that is what I needed.

Yup, the 120 is a lower launching shaft than the 130. Most people just think the weight is the only difference

Really bummed I never got to try out the modus line. No one around me has the 130x or the 120tx.

Wow. What a great time for this thread. I'm about to pull the trigger on the Srixon 735 or 535/735 combo and have been reading and watching everything I can on the Modus 105 and 120.

 

Everything about my game says 105 (I'm currently playing KBS Tour90) but my only hands on experience so far has been the 120 and I was hitting them so straight and high, shot after shot after shot. I don't have anywhere nearby where I can try rhe 105.

 

So tomorrow I'm borrowing those same 120's and going to put them in play for a round. Even though they are stiff and I'm on the border of stiff and Regular.

I hit the same club with that KBS, felt hollow and dead compared to the Nippon.

Yeah. That's what I gathered from the web site based the 105 having a softer tip and rhe 765 having a mid shaft bend profile.

 

I was hitting the 7 high enough the other day with the 120. I'll be interested to see tomorrow if I have the same results with the 5.
