  2. Nobs report on feel is spot on in my book as well ive got a cpl of sets of 120X and they don't feel at all ike an x. more like a semi stiff at best..... modus 125s are much tighter than 120x I have found and a totally different flight. soft step modus 130x are a GREAT shaft, I have a cpl of them in play at the moment. love them

    The New Miura CB-301 Irons

    Yes. These aren't on there yet.
  10. 120 S are very weak to flex. CPM wise a Modus 120 S standard 7 iron measures 316 CPM For comparison, DG R300 are 321 CPM and Project X 6.5 362 CPM I currently use Modus 125 S which is 339CPM but but also use a set with Modus 120 X which measures 327 CPM and the 120 X definitely feels softer than the 125 S. I've used 120 S in the past but felt that my dispersion was greater with the 120 S and it just felt a bit whippy. Only Modus model that comes close to the Project X 6.5 would be the Modus 130 X at 376 CPM While CPM is not the entire story to shaft fitting, stiffness wise, I don't think the 120S will be stiff enough even with the hard step + tipping for someone who is fit to a 6.5. I don't recommend tipping a taper tip shaft.
  11. END of another season of JDM and not 1 POS sepo spam went anywhere NEAR one of my bags. not a chance of that putrid TM mseries whaterver number where up o this month or callies new super spam theory of distribution. Nope only PURE JDM for moi. Nothing new was of any interest driver wise, saw tried a few of them, the new prgr very disappointing... Yamaha is a disgrace nowadays....tourstage doesn't exist....ryomas laterst don't hold a candle to the original D1.....srixon, I mean why??????....... so as it always seems to be, the bespoke makers grab my attention MILES more than the OEMS. roddio did a nice new s-tuning model, jbeam had some ' interesting ideas" but really none can surpass the 435 IMO. freheit did a very nice players 415 cc model.. that's worth a peek.. astro tour v3 is ripper that's prob my head of the year even tho it wasn't from this year... I mean recent years....and the kamui pro tp model is still in the bag as my all carry driver, finding that head hard to compete with let along beat! the astro tour is the only " new" head I kept, none of the others I tired beat out what ive already got. the BIG addition this season was the newer DIAMANA X shaft. its not too unlike the original model from 2013, but its a bit tighter and a lighter feel I find, I spoke to the head techy guy at bishi chem and he said here are subtle differences in the materials *( wudnt expand on that ) and there is a slight perfomramnce improvenment, but none that is easliy quantifiable on course , I tend to agree, the new one feel a bit livelier , the older ones feel a bit more dense and more controlled, the new ones SEEM to give the hitter a sense of added distance , although that wasn't proven in my rounds what so ever but I def fell like im hitting the ball longer with the new model and more controlled with the original model.. if any of that makes sense , its a thing for sure .......... ie if its noice weather id take out the new one, if its windy id take out the old one...its purely placebo im sure... ohg and BTW theyse shafts are MILES better than any other bishi model , tensie etc..... out there material wise... (str8 from the horses mouth!!) X is there top dog and wont be replicated again for cost reasons so bear that in mind . irons...................phooooarrrrr.......... not for me. none of the OEMS even remotely looked good, HONMA disssapointed, prgr was filthy!!!!, I don't even look at bridgestone anymore since they let go of tourstage. Yamaha,see above.... so, MASDA did a lovely set of MB that ill be getting next season, took me a while to like the new modle but I did a siede by side with the lastest MIURA models (yuk!!!!!!!!!!) recently and the masdas blew em all away for looks. The closest was the fujumoto MB but that's a hollow head and a very different beast . So ill be sticking to the old stuff unless something stunning copmes up , but I don't think they will beat in the masdas. that fella does some good things. driving irons/utes , fourteen did a lovely ut716 model ,that literally took over my bag, they wont be for most folk, but they are irreplaceable in my bags now. 17*/21* shafted one with a modus 105 and the other with a diamana stinger saqra ute/ di was a very nice cpl of pieces as well but I prefer the look of the fourteen so they go benched. fairways. nothing to see here at all. nothing beat out the ryoma and prgr egg. wedges..... hmmm nothing here at all as well. putters.. ridiculous, benock was of course the flavour of the year and yes there is a hype abut also the performance to back it. was a beees nudger awy form ordering an ubershlokken early this year only for injury to curtail the order, that will be rectified next year for sure. go get another fitting done to make sure nothing has changed..and hey presto all m y bettis,scottys, can say sayonara. ! so the bags ended up something like this.. perfect day bag : jbeam 435 9.5*/7dreamers kasco FD 12.8*/ diamanan stinger. prgr egg 16.5*/ quadra fire express 75xs or 21* fourteen 716ut/stinger masda (cu) 3/pw / NS 2g18x soft stepped, they have become my fave set. Yamaha raw black 52* gap/ Ns sp orange tourstage x-wedge 51/56 * / NS proto 130x fourteen mt28 60* lw//NS 950s. bridgetsone rs-x balls WINDY day bag : ryoma d1 9* / diamana stinger 70x kasco FD 12.8* / graphite design z9000m 6x. fourteen di 17* / modus 105s masda MB modus 120X Prgr nabla id 51/57 * / NS wv125s yururi 1.618 60* ( bent ) / ns 950s tourstage x01z balls. WET day bag: kamui pro tp 07 10.5* / diamana X 60x buchi 2w 13* / diamana X 70s prgr egg 18* / diamana stinger 70x+ grindworks MB / NS dp X. syard bold 52 + 56 * / monacco X prgr egg balls so that's a 2018 wrap of all things JDM troops. No ral surprises , balls might be the biggest change. loving the yokohaha range this year, PRGR balls are worth a look into , eps the rs spin model, they really do grip and rip. only thing on the horizon is a benock custom and a set of masda mbs for next season that I can forsee. all wrapped up in a new a diamana cart bag. bring on 2019!!!
  12. IMPORTANT QUESTION: I just bought a set of mint condition irons that were built for someone else's specs, and am trying to work out how I am going to alter them to meet my own specs. These irons have Nippon modus3 Tour120 stiff shafts that I would like to keep, if possible. My problem is that I do not have enough practical knowledge about the modus3 Tour120 shaft, and there's not enough info on its webpage. So.. since I bought a set that was built for someone else, it is +1.0" longer than I need it to be, although it is the proper weight and bend profile; however I was fit to 6.5 iron shaft frequency (which can be achieved by hard stepping a Tour120 stiff shaft 1x) which is perfect for the X or TX flex, but not the S flex which needs to be hard stepped once to achieve a 6.5 frequency. My plan is to remove the heads and take -0.5" from the tip and also -0.5" from the butt.. but here is my problem: since I am going to be pulling these shafts, I do not know if they will THEN be able to be tipped -0.5" and still fit the iron heads. If these were 0.370" parallel shafts I know this wouldn't matter at all and I could do exactly that, but since they're 0.355" taper tip shafts and they've already been installed once I'm not sure if they'd still be able to be tipped -0.5" more, or even at all, and still fit the iron heads. So...…… my question is whether or not anyone has any knowledge that could be relevant to helping me get this set built to my specific specs: 6.5 iron shaft frequency, -0.5" from std length, std lie/loft. I am trying to achieve that result from the spec of the current set: standard Tour120 stiff flex frequency (unknown), +0.5" length from std. If anyone can offer any sage advice I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks very much. Drew G

    Are the lofts the same on Global version? Is there a GW available in the Global?
  19. This little fella has been my travelling /practice putter since its refurb, its been everywhere. Face is perfect the body is still really good. Obv. its a bit used as its been a faithfull servant but theres no major chinks or dents that detract from it. Its more than a pretty decent piece still. Colours are great ,the copper underlay looks awsome. Sorry , I cant help with what finish this is , as I sent half a dozen of these out to difffent guys years ago and have no clue who did what, I THINK this one was done by kari lajossi tho. looks like his kinda thing. he does super work btw.... $175 delivered
