Just looking for some help getting my wedge shafts dialed in... if I am playing modus 130s in my irons should I stick with them for wedges or go with something else? Open to suggestions

You can't go wrong by playing the same shaft in your wedges, that you know fits you well in your irons.  Anything else, while it might "feel" good, brings in another variable and can make results be confusing....as in "was it me, or the different shafts"

I put the WV115's in my wedges with the Modus 130's in my irons. The Wedge shafts are the best i ever felt. They can handle, full, half or quarter shots. Chipping, pitching and punching it simple also. great feel and touch with these shafts.

I drop the 2 iron or one of the other UDI's based on course.

What did you end up putting in the wedges? I also have the 130 x in my irons and have been going nuts trying to find info on whether to go iron shaft or their wedge shaft. No one seems to be able to compare the two when in shafts.

I have 130x in irons and have had 130x in wedges.  Settled on 130s in wedges.  Just better feel on half shots pitches etc.  just as straight on full shots.  Tab more height with the s.

I like to stay with the same shaft but increase my swing weight from D3 in my irons to D4 in my wedges.

Buddy of mine who just turned pro plays 130x in his irons and gap wedge, but plays a 130r in his lob. Seems a bit extreme to me, but he swears by it.
