HELP! Need hope on choosing new iron shafts!

Recently, I decided to upgrade my set of Ping S56 irons that I've had in the bag since they came out. I hit everything out on the market at the moment from the i500 to the P760, P730 and everything in between.
I am a scratch player but I don't play as much as I'd like. I carry my 7 iron about 180 on a good day and swing at about 114mph with a driver.

I've always liked a slightly lighter shaft as I feel that it forces me to slow down and control my swing just slightly. I decided to go for the P760 head, but I am stuck between shafts. On one end, I really like the Nippon Modus3 105, but on the other end, the True Temper 120g X100 feels like butter too. I tried to play a Tour Issue X100 about a year ago and lost my swing with it and will not go back to a 130+ gram.

With my swing speed and moderate tempo, will a 105g vs. 120g shaft really make too much of a difference? And is there a reason to favor Nippon over True Temper or vice versa?

Any advice or direction is much appreciated as I haven't had much luck in discussions of these two shafts and weights when it comes to slightly higher swing speeds. Thank you!!
