I'll need to try the new Modus 115!


Recommended Posts

From what I read thus far,  the new Modus 115s are of the 105, 125 family with high kick point. The raw weight of 115 is actually heavier than the Modus 120,  which is somewhat confusing,  but I would expect the 115 to perform midway between the 105 and 125 in terms of trajectory and spin.   When I got fitted with the Project X LZ 5.5,  the other shaft that performed similarly well was the Modus 105 S.  However,  Modus 105 S felt a bit too light for me and a bit too high trajectory.   I'll need to try these 115s as they should fit me well.     

The only thing I am not impressed wth the PX LZ is the poor weight tolerance.  When assembling my set,  I had used tip weights ranging from 2 to 8 grams to get the correct swing weight all because the shaft weights are so off.    Based on my past experience with Nippon shafts, I would not have weight tolerance issues.    Also, I am hoping they feel better at impact.

I have a set of 115s in my toyo wedges. They are ok, nothing flash.....as far as wedge shafts go I think the Shimada NW series are king.

Will be interesting to see if these are closer to the 105 which I dont like at all, or the 120 which feel great but a bit on the heavy side for me now with not playing every week.

I think these might be on the heavy side. If I was in the 115 G range I think I would be Shimada tour lite.

I think so, but I will check when I get home from work. I thought the wedge 115 had been out for a while. I am probably wrong...:tsg_smiley_crazy:

The black limited edition looks nice,  but not sure why they didn't do the logo in the signature red!!   would have looked much better. 

Gonna wait for the normal version.

I think the black and white looks better, less garish/lurid...but everyone to their own. If had a black and white in a 950 profile/model. That would get may attention. These will be a bit on the heavy side for me.
