I am having a hard time deciding weather to go with the 115 or 125.  I typically like a heavier shaft to stay smoother but have 0 clue what a 133g wedge shaft will feel and perform like vs. a 122g 115.  I am going to be putting them in my 53* and 57* . I am having a little trouble finding feedback comparisons between the two.  Thanks

Has anyone here gamed the 115 and the 125 wedge or can comment on playing at 130g+ shaft? My club maker has to order them this morning and I'm on the fence

Can't speak for the Modus wedge shafts, I'm sure they're great, but seeing your signature lists Modus3 120 shafts for irons and Vokey gap and lob wedges, I'd venture a guess that they've got Dynamic Gold in them.  From a purely weight standpoint, the Modus 125 with it's heavier weight will have a similar feel for static weight as what you currently play.  That said, don't count out using your same iron shaft soft stepped once in your wedges.  I've done this for a couple of years now and really like the way it works for me.  It keeps similar swing and static weight between irons and wedges and it also gives me approximately the same feel between irons and wedges with the added bonus of feeling a little softer and more muted with the wedges when making less than full passes, which I do frequently with a wedge.

I think that's a pretty good idea, although I think I may experiment with iron shafts in wedges with some KBS Tours I have laying around.  I just switched from Vokey to Mizuno T5. Side note I wanted more weight in my MP32s so Im having 120-X installed.. I may just pull the trigger on the Wedge 125s

Never played the 115, but LOVE the 125 in my 54 & 58. Doesn't feel heavy at all. Smooth easy swing. Don't get a full 58 often, but do with my 54. Been through quite a few wedge shafts. Won't be switching again.

That's great to hear!  Thats the way I am leaning also.  I also did some digging in the massive 'Pros switching to Nippon Modus" mega thread and found some great info in there as well.  I am not sure why I couldnt find it through google searching.  I think the 125 Wedge will be for me.

I've not played the Modus Wedge 115, but had previously play the 125 and loved them.  And, I'm in the process of re-shafting my Vokey's (50* and 56*) from the stock shaft to the 125s.  

Basically, the stock Vokey shaft -- TT DG S200 -- weighs just a few grams more than the Modus 125 cut to the exact same length.  For the 50*, it was 124g vs. 120g (Modus), and for the 56* it was 122g vs. 119g (Modus).  And, the old Vokey shafts had some leftover epoxy in the tip and some grip tape so the Modus is more or less exactly the same weight.

If you like most stock wedge shaft weights, you will have no problem with the Modus 125.  Plus, it's the best and smoothest feeling wedge shaft.

Played 120X in irons for quite some time, and tried both the 115/125 wedge shaft, and they felt completely dead to me.  Went with 120X in the wedges straight in and that worked really well (still playing them in the wedges, after switching to PX LZ in irons).

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer but it may be worth considering if its not too late...

Yeah no problem.  I guess if your looking for the 120 kick point profile the 115/125 is a bit different than that. I may screw around with iron shafts straight in at a later point as my wedge inventory grows.  For now I'll stick with the wedge specific Modus.

I play the modus 105s in my srixon's 5-AW, play the 115's in my 54 and 58 vokeys.  I tried the 125's in my wedges as well as the 105's and thought the 115's were the best fit for me, the weight matched better, but thats me. I would suggest trying them both, and see what works b/c you have the 120's in your current set....

I tried the 115 in a ping glide 50 gap wedge for exactly one day.

It was so soft, spun so much, and flew so high for me that it was actually comical. The guy next to me at the range actually asked me how I hit the club so high. I just chuckled and said that the shaft was an experiment and it was not what I was looking for.

I literally hit the thing HIGHER than a full swing with my 60 lob wedge (with a ping CFS wedge shaft), and was sucking crappy range balls back 20 feet right off of the 120 yard target green.

Anyway, it felt great, like every modus shaft, but it got replaced with a 125. It Still goes high and pretty spiny, but playable now.

Also remember the raw length in these is pretty long. Once you cut a 125 down to playing length you END UP around 125 grams.  You lose about 8 grams. The shaft also feels a little counterbalanced to me.  It definitely does not feel like a "heavy" shaft to me.

For me personally, a bit higher flight  and more spin but FAR better feeling. Flex is similar.

Played modus wedge for a long time. it is an 'okay' shaft at best. If OP wants to play this shaft: Choose the correct weight for swing balance.
Then switched to modus 120 x liked that one a lot. Stiff tip/soft mid combi is really nice.
Currently play the KBS 610. I like the lower flight.

I am in a similar boat. Went 120R in the wedges and not loving them (a bit too light). Considering moving to the 120S i have in my irons, the wedge 115 shaft, or back to dynamic gold.

For me - I have decided to stick with 120S in my gap wedge, but still want something maybe same weight or heavier and softer flex in my sand and lob wedges... the saga continues. Maybe 120S soft stepped or the 8 iron shaft trick?

I really enjoyed the wedges with the 125 Wedge shafts. I would highly recommend them. I didn't have time to warm up and took them right to the course. I really enjoyed the weight and ended up having the most birdies during a round all year. The lower flight and heavier feel was awesome. Stuck a lot of shots within 10-15'

Can you give us a longer term review of the 125?  I'm somewhere between the 120s and 120x but really want a lower flight with my wedges.

I am going to play 120x modus in next set of irons and wondering if I should soft step a 120x in wedges or a modus 115 or 125.  I have never loved a DG in my vokeys.

Look at my old post.  115 plays soft.  I would never recommend it for an X player unless you are really OK with a SOFT wedge shaft.

The 115 shaft will also feel quite a bit lighter than the 120x even though they are very close to the same weight. The 120 is very tip heavy and the 115 has a balance point more similar to a kbs.

Never played the 115, but LOVE the 125 in my 54 & 58. Doesn't feel heavy at all. Smooth easy swing. Don't get a full 58 often, but do with my 54. Been through quite a few wedge shafts. Won't be switching again.

Would agree with this.  I just started playing the modus 125 wedge shaft and it is excellent.  I usually stick to the same shaft as in my irons, but this wedge shaft performs great.  I play modus 125x shafts in my irons.  The extra weight of the 125 shaft (think its around 133 grams) is nice, but never feels overly heavy.

I've played DG, project x, kbs c taper and hi-rev in my wedges, and so far I like the modus the best.

Will the 125 play similar to a 120X soft stepped in wedges, Also how do I know what to order when I soft step?

I'm once again in the process of experimenting with lofted wedge shafts...  I played the Modus 120X all the way through for years, then switched to S400 based on feel and the technique I used.  Lately the S400 has created a feel that the ball "rockets" off the face and has created some inconsistency.  Yesterday I played my first round with the Modus 115 Wedge shaft and was quite surprised.  As someone on here mentioned, range sessions resulted in moon balls but I'll contribute that to "hard as a rock" range balls and super soft range tee conditions.  Yesterday's round was with ProV1 and firmer conditions and was pleasantly surprised.  Lower penetrating ball flight and lots of spin.  I never hit my lofted wedge full and want the ball to come off the face with controlled speed for consistency, the feeling of more swing and less ball speed I suppose.  I'll repost as I test this Modus 115 Wedge shaft more.  

Shafts to test in the near future... Modus 115 Wedge (current), WV125S (pre-release Modus 125), Modus 120X (try an old standby)

Good stuff. Could you tell us about your swing? Maybe like driver swing speed range, release type and low/medium/high ball hitter?

Driver SS is 106-110 with a "handsy" release and usually fight -2º ~ -3º AoA with the driver... working on this BTW.  Generally low launch with driver.  I'd consider iron launch to be medium however, 7i is 170-175 yards.  

I'm conducting a Titleist Fitting Day today at a local private learning center and will get there early to test the Modus 115 and 125 Wedge shafts as well as the Modus 120X.  The Modus wedge shafts are in SM6 58.08M bent 1º weak and the 120X is in a high bounce SM6 60.10M bent 1º strong.  Will follow up on partial feel/distance consistency as well as short game shots around the green.

Very interested to hear about your results.  I just got fitted into 120X for my irons, considering going 120S in wedges for the feel, but also considering the 115 and 125 wedge shafts.  I'm a lower spin player with just about everything so increasing spin with wedges especially on partial shots is my goal.  But feel is a big thing for me, so that's why I may go 120S for a little more spin but not get so far away from that profile, especially if the 115/125 wedge shafts feel a bit different than the 120 iron shaft.

Good stuff guys. I'm a lower spin player as well and I play 120S shafts in my irons and wedges. I've been curious for a while about the 120X shafts for a little tighter ball flight but I've worried that it would reduce my spin too much. How did the 120S compare to the X in your fitting?
