NS Pro Modus Wedge Flex

Recommended Posts

Just to share my experience with NSPro Modus 105 Wedge Shaft. This shaft is made softer in flex considering the nature of wedge play. However, the heavier weight of wedge head adds up to the flexibility and makes the shaft feel flimsy at full swing.

 

For information, I am using Vokey SM5 and 716 MB. I wonder how Modus 105 Stiff and Modus 120 Stiff function in wedges. Welcoming inputs.

 

Thanks.

I have that shaft in 115 grams in one of my wedges. I just took it out of the bag as I did not like the feel of it. Going back to my old Cleveland 50* with a TTDG s300 in it.

I too have the shafts in my vokey wedges.  I thought I'd get better feel out of them.  When I went for my iron fitting, I immediately could feel the smoothness of the Modus 120 x compared to KBS, Project X, etc.  In the wedge, I just don't notice enough difference to warrant spending extra for that shaft in the future.

      So I was pretty surprised when I found out: (1) that nearly everyone slept on my man Koepka, and (2) I won a Wilson FG Tour wedge for my second place finish in the PGA championship giveaway.  I have not swung a Wilson club in while, and I was intrigued to see how their wedge would stack up against my current gamers - which are the Titleist Vokey SM5's. Full disclosure - my current wedges have pretty much lost their spin and I am in the market for some new wedges, so this couldn't have come at a better time.
      Luckily, I was able to fully customize the wedge to my specs and order the proper loft, length, lie, grind and custom stamping.  I ended up going with the Wilson FG Tour, 58 degree, standard length, 1 degree flat, traditional grind, and stamped "MD2" (I wasn't really sure what to do there and panicked - these are basically just my initials). Oh! I also got the shaft in a S+ KBS rev, which was really clutch because I play S+ KBS C-Tapers. I went with the traditional grind because, on occasion, I've been hitting my L-Gring lob wedge a little fat and course conditions are soft where I play in the north east.
      My first impression regarding the look of this wedge was that it is super-clean. The lines are nice and the head is compact.  The satin finish also has a matte-quality so that it won't create a glare in the sun.  I personally feel that the club looks very inviting to hit, and I felt confident at address.
      One thing that I noticed was that the weighting of this club feels heavier than my Vokey's. I didn't weigh them so I can't confirm this to an absolute fact, but at least to me, they feel heavier.  That being said, I don't think that is a negative and I think that the club feels really solid overall.  I was able to control shots and work the ball both ways, and even flight shots as need be.  I have also posted some pictures below of the impact of the shots.  As you can see, the face definitely has some grip to it and the balls were checking up pretty nicely.  I toe'd a shot, as you can see, and the club was pretty forgiving - flying about 95% of the way to the target.
      Another interesting thing to note is that I hit this club against my 54 degree Vokey and was flying it the exact same distance despite it being 4 degrees weaker... So do with that information what you may. I don't necessarily subscribe to more distance is always better, but facts are facts.
      As you can tell I was hitting off of synthetic turf in the pictures below, but I also hit some shots out of the rough and sand (though not pictured because it was getting dark). I actually think that the (perceived) heavier weight was advantageous in rough and sand , as the club was able to glide through tougher lies without getting caught up. 
      All in all I am very happy with this club. I am very impressed with the look, feel and playability and am leaning towards ordering a 54 and be done with my search to replace my current wedges.  Thanks again to MyGolfSpy and Wilson for the opportunity, I'll check in and answer any additional questions that anyone might have.

      I'm slowly replacing an old knock-off set of clubs I bought years ago, and finally bought irons - my PW in the set is 43deg. I know the theory that wedges should be every 4deg, but I just bought a 50deg SM6 to fill a gap in my current set for $100 through Dick's over the big sale weekend and would hate to replace it already. So, what's in your bag?

      Callaway Sure Out Wedge review by Kenny B
       
      First, a little about me and my golf game…  I will be 71 next month.  I've been playing golf since I gave up softball, volleyball, and basketball in the early 1990's.  I needed something to play that didn't hurt my ever-aching body.  Well, golf isn't quite it, but it's probably better for me than gin rummy, shuffleboard, and naps.  Like most people that take up golf, I sliced, then sliced some more.  After a couple of years, I made the decision to learn to hit the ball straight or give up the game.  I took lessons (should have done that in the beginning); single plane swing lessons.  My swing got better and so did my handicap, dropping from 20-something to low teens.  What was holding me up then was my short game.  I had “hands of stone” according to my club pro.  Stabbing at chips and poor speed control with the putter.  So, I spent a LOT of time around the practice green.  My putting improved first, since the more time I spent on the greens, the more comfortable I felt stroking a putt.  About 3 years ago I started looking at the hole when putting, and I went from a decent putter to a good putter (at least in my mind, but that's another story).
       
      While my putting improved several years ago, good wedge play was more difficult.  On the green every putt has the same lie and it's just a matter of getting the correct line and the correct speed (heard someone on the Golf Channel say that once; he's correct by the way!).  Around the green, chipping is very different; good lies, bad lies, tight lies, short rough, long rough, uphill, downhill, sidehill, etc.  I didn't have much confidence; I knew I wasn't a good chipper, and I usually didn't disappoint myself.  Enter my SCOR wedges… for some reason the SCORs seem to work better for me than any other wedge I had tried.  My brand new Vokeys went to the garage.  About that same time I moved to a more upscale muni that has a good practice area, I retired from my job, and I spent a lot of time working on my short game.  Maybe it was the SCORs, maybe it was just more practice time, but probably a little of both but my short game improved.
       
      OK, let's get to the sand wedge.  My old golf course had no bunkers, so no practice there.  When I traveled to other courses, I struggled in the sand.  Even though I play “bunker avoidance”, it was inevitable that I would be in one.  My current course has many bunkers on the course, and a practice geenside bunker.  In the past two years I have worn out my SCOR 54* in those bunkers, and honestly, I am not much better out of the sand now then I was before I joined.  So, I started looking for an alternative sand wedge.
       
      We have all seen the big bounce wedges on GC commercials; XE-1, C3i, and in stores my favorite was always the Cleveland Smart Sole.  Last year, Callaway came out with the Sure Out wedge, a takeoff of the Ben Hogan Sure Out.  Callaway worked with Hank Haney in the design of this new wedge.  On a trip to Portland, Oregon in February, I stopped at Dick's Sporting Goods because I had an old gift card and decided to give the Callaway Sure Out a try.  The Sure Out comes in 56*, 58*, 60* and 64*.  Dick's only had the 58* and 64* in stock.  I bought the 58*.

      I have played with this club for about 6 weeks now with a lot of sand practice.  All pictures shown in this review were taken last week, and the wear is very reasonable for the number of shots.  The shine has worn off.  
       
      Test Results
       
      Before I took the Sure Out onto the course, I spent a couple of hours hitting the wedge out of various lies around and in the practice bunker.  The first thing I noticed was the Sure Out has grooves all the way across the face of the club, similar to the Callaway PM Grind wedge.  It also has some relief in the hosel area which should make it less likely to hit sh@nks.  
       

       
      The second thing I noticed was the Sure Out is heavier and shorter with a more upright lie angle than my SCORs, which is understandable since I ordered my SCORS 1” long and 2* flat.  I didn't have a problem; I'm just stood closer to the ball which might be a good thing.  
       
      The third thing I noticed was the ball flies higher and shorter with the same swing.  My 58* SCOR has a more penetrating flight than the 58* Sure Out.  I probably should have ordered the 56* Sure Out, since I want to use this wedge to replace my 54* SCOR.  I will NOT be replacing my 58* SCOR with this wedge; I love my SCOR, but this Sure Out has some great features.
       
      I can hit the Sure Out from any lie around the green, even tight lies.  I was a little concerned about the big bounce not working on our hard turf, but as long as the attack angle is steep, it will do the job.  However, I would always use my SCOR for that shot anyway.  In rough the Sure Out is amazing, so effortless to dig the ball out.  I would use this wedge for rough over my SCOR.
       

       
      Well, what about the sand??  Being a muni, the sand at my course is not what you would find at a resort or private club.  The Sure Out worked well for any sand shot I attempted. Like they say in the C3i wedge commercial, “Not one of them stayed in the bunker.  They all came out.”  I like this club!!  
       
      I took my 54* SCOR out of the bag, mainly because I didn't want to use it while I was testing the Sure Out but also because I need my 58* SCOR for many shots around the green.  Since the Sure Out is now the club that goes the shortest distance, I have a yardage gap between my 58* SCOR and my 50* SCOR, but I have been able to manage it by varying shots with my 50*.  I rarely ever use my 54* SCOR for full shots anyway.  
       
      Tips for playing this type of wedge are correct when they say to play square to the ball.  I tried setting up open like for a regular wedge, and the ball goes in the direction of setup.  Just setup square and make a swing.  It doesn't get any easier than that.  Play the ball back in your stance and the shot is lower and carries further; play the ball forward in your stance and the ball flies higher and shorter.
       

       
      I won't say that this club will be great for everyone.  If you are good with traditional wedges, I wouldn't bother with any of these big flanged wedges.  They are a specialty club.  However, if you struggle to get out of bunkers, you should seriously consider getting one of these types of wedges… or take a bunch of bunker lessons!!  Oh BTW, I haven't hit a sh@nk with it… yet!
       
      I will keep this Callaway Sure Out in my bag for now.  I may look at replacing it with a 56* in the future.  I certainly don't need any higher lofted wedge; this 58* goes plenty high for all the shots I need.  
       
      If you have any questions, I will be happy to try to answer them.

      I've not seen anyone review those anywhere on the net so I thought I'll bite the bullet and do it myself.
      If you have any questions - just ask.   As you know, with PXG price is a bit of an issue. Those will cost you £695-1100 in the UK per wedge. Whenever or not someone wants to pay it, afford it, sees value for money is up to the individual and I won't be discussing it here.   As long as you're comfortable with being called a Sugar Daddy it's a pretty nice looking head.     You can see that there has been no expense spared in making of this club.  The finish is much more matte than the 0311, the deep grooves on the bounce are reminiscent of a mix between white gold and Damascus steel.     As far as I'm aware those are the _only_ 100% milled wedges, and the quality just shows.   Anyway - I got it as a ‘lower' bounce option for when I play courses with a lot of tight lies, and having played it for the first time yesterday… It does feel different.  I didn't have the time to check it out on my launch monitor but the ball has more spin.    My ball bit the green and rolled back about 3 feet. It never happened to me before to get so much backspin.   The feeling is a little bit more ‘solid' than the previous PXG wedges. It's super easy to open a little bit with the grind. The feel is so buttery soft. And it played awesome. I've hit pitch shots, lob shots and out of bunkers. It worked so well that if I was to choose - I'd keep the Sugar Daddy in 56 vs a 54 + 58 in the 0311.   I play my 54 as 3/4 shot from 75y and the 56 was still spot on. On the short game practice area I've hit 20 balls from 70/50/20 yards over a bunker and most of my balls were dancing nicely on the green, with mostly being within 3 feet.   My only problem with it, as with all the PXG clubs - they show use instantly.  I mean instantly.  They get dinged up, rust etc… but I guess thats what you have to deal with when you get such soft steel.   And the difference in colour between the 0311 and 0311T wedge is annoying too, as I have the whole PXG bag and it just looks annoying to have 1 different wedge       Anyway - as far as wedges go - those are brilliant and a solid **4.75/5**
