Wedge Shaft Suggestion

Recommended Posts

So just this year I went away from my trusty Dynamic Gold X100 to move towards the Modus Tour 120. Even though the season is early I have noticed a big difference in feel between the two and am really enjoying the Modus. Now in my 52 and 58 I am currently playing S400. My question is, I am looking at some fresh wedges. Has anyone tried out the Modus Wedge Shaft? Or would you suggest I stick with the S400?

I have the Modus3 Wedge 125 shafts in my RTX4s and absolutely love them. If you like the Modus3 120s it’s a fairly safe bet that you’ll like the Modus Wedge shafts, too!

I'm waiting to see if more OEMs offer the Modus wedge flexes in their next product cycles. I just don't get along with True Temper iron shafts, they all feel like rebar to my puny arms 😞

So far, I've only found them offered in the RTX4 like @mr.hicksta mentioned, and TM milled grind wedges. I don't think it will make a huge difference in my sand/lob wedge because I almost never take full swings with them, but I think it could really make a difference in my 52, which for me is my 100y club at full speed. I also almost never use it to chip with.

I'm also experimenting with the idea of a set gap wedge in my next irons since I don't really use it around the greens much.

@yungkory Cobra offers them on their MIM Wedges as well, all three weights too! That's what I am thinking of getting as I have heard nothing but good things about the MIM. I do think I will enjoy the Modus 125 Wedge shafts but its always a hard change to make when you have been used to something for so long.

I think you'll find the Modus3 Wedge 125 to be similar to the S400 in terms of weight. I know feel is an objective thing, but having gamed Modus3 shafts for a few years now, they feel extremely stable and for lack of a better word, smooth. I totally understand being somewhat resistant to change, but I think you'll make the switch once you try them out!

I have the DG spinners in the BStone wedges. They feel amazing. Have the S400 in the new Hi-Toe... hollow feel and sound... same issue with the s200’s in the cobra wedges I had.

Next shafts will be fitted, but I’d Ike to give the KBS 610’s a try.

If it puts me in the S300/400 I will pick the next in line. Like the KBS tours in my irons, don’t care for the KBS Tour V wedge.

I didn’t get along with the Modus 105’s in the i200’s so I recon I’d have the same issue with the 120’s.

Let us know what you end up with.

105s are very different from the 120s

I tried the 105 X-Stiff in my irons, but I just got such a better dispersion in with the X-stiff.

I hope so. I cringe when I see that 105... falls out of the sky on me.

As far as wedges I bought the heads I wanted and had them install shafts same as my irons. Works great and same feel all the way through the irons.

Just swapped a 610 into my 54 degree. Early impressions are positive. Seemed to be very stable and definitely a lower flight than the Hi Rev 2.0 it replaced.
