I got fitted for Nippon Modus 105. Not really loving the feel. Maybe the lighter hears and the lighter shafts make them feel too light.

 

 

Any other experiences to share?

... Recoil Prototype 95's. I like the lighter weight while still being heavy enough to maintain my tempo. Medium trajectory mid spin shaft that compliments the high launch low spin of my P790's.

C-TAPER 130x. The single best combination of looks, feel, and distance I have ever experienced in an iron set when combined with P790 heads.

 

...This is why these threads are always interesting but basically useless when considering a change. I could not hit C-Tapr 130 shafts in my P790's in any flex and TB would probably hit the moon with my Recoil Prototype 95's. Yet both of us think these combo's are as good as it gets. Fun thread though.

It's the heads that really shine. I've played the same shaft for years but never had such a wonderful iron set up that I really felt good about in every aspect. And they don't punish me much on minor mishits which just breeds confidence.

... I could not agree more. The fact that they are so good in the hands of a younger guy with a ton of swing speed or a more mature player with average swing speed at 100mph with a driver, certainly says a ton about these amazing irons.

I agree 100%. I can't honestly see a player at say, 15 or under cap who wouldn't love the performance.

Anyone else notice that due to the slightly longer hosels and the slightly shallower bore, that the ground to first step "net/net" makes these play a bit softer to flex?
