Most similar shaft to Nippon Super Peening Blue

Hello wrx friends,

 

After going through 4-5 different shafts, testing on course and with trackman, I settled on Nippon SPB X Flex. Have been playing them for a year or so now. They perform beautifully for me.

 

However, I want to get a backup set, but I really don't want to go through the trouble of getting another SPB set. Can someone recoommend shafts that they think are most similar to the SPB X flex? One that comes to mind is the C-Taper S+. I've tried the C-Taper 130 X Flex, and while they perform well, they feel like doo-doo.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks

I’m a huuuge Nippon SPB fan. For me the low launch, mid spin, and great feel is something I searched for for a long time.

 

That being said, they’re expensive and difficult to find a deal on. My advice would be:

 

Throw a “Want To Buy” post up and I bet you have a set within a day

 

Or

 

Get some Dynamic Gold X100’s. They’re the closest thing I’ve found out of KBS, Nippon, True Temper, etc.

 

In reality though i’d just post a WTB and find a set for about $200 for 4-PW

I've heard of people ordering from here before. I've always been skeptical. You had no issues at all? They are the real deal? It almost seems too good to be true.

 

No issues at all, real deal.

 

I’ve never bought from overseas, are there any duties, taxes, fees, etc?

 

I don’t want to make a broad statement that there is not, but from my transaction for these there were no additional fees.

Rakuten is great, bought two sets of irons. No tariffs no BS. Shipping is cheap too, is a Japanese site so is trustworthy :)

Some of the Modus prototypes IMO were SPB-ish. C10, 2S14 and E11 in stiff flex are SPBish. In X-flex they are a little more stout even I think. ORAs are similar to Super Peening Orange which is just a touch softer shaft. I currently play ORA X.

Reading a review on the golfshaftreviews website, it sounds like the Modus 125 would be closest:

 

"As I measured these shafts I compared them to the Modus3 product line. I just published a review of the new Modus3 Tour 125. I quickly realized the **Modus3 Tour 125 is so similar to the Super Peening Blue**, it is hard to tell them apart. While they are both designated 125g shafts, the new metallurgy used in the Modus3 shafts resulted in the same shaft about 5 grams lighter. All else is virtually identical. If you played the Super Peening Blue in the past, you should be accustomed to the feel and performance of the new Modus3 Tour 125."
