Tj,  with my personal experience, I will only play the Nippon 125 Wedge Shaft from now on.   The shaft feels smoother to me than DG and I can flight the ball high or low with no issues.   For me the best wedge shaft I have played to Date.

Agree with above.  The Nippon 125 wedge shot is great; the 115 wedge shaft also is very good.  My favorite wedge shafts - firm, stable and smooth, can knock the ball down and the balance is very good.

I’ve played the 125, the 115 and now play the 105. They are all fantastic wedge shafts.  Smooth and stable and for me they add 300 to 400 RPM of spin.

Far tighter dispersion and control flighting wedges at my target than either the DG S400 and KBS for me.  Since I play the Modus 130, this feels most familiar without going to that iron shaft.  Worth the upgrade and it transforms a wedge compared to when I try the fitting stock.  There's enough of a smooth feel in the shaft without that loose, bendy feeling and I get a satisfying crack at impact when it unloads.  Even though it's low torque, you don't really notice it and the spin numbers are where you need them to be.

125 Wedge is one of the best shafts ever made

Absolutely love it.
Only complaint is how heavy it is. Recently went lighter in most of the bag and this isn’t quite in line

The 125 was firmer and flew lower. It was too heavy for my tastes. The 115 was better. Less weight gave me better feel. Piercing shots with spin were easy. I settled on the 105 Wedge because it blended best with the 105 Stiff iron shafts. It felt all around more responsive for me. I like to use swing speed changes to add/subtract distance. The heavier shafts didn’t spin enough when I played soft tempoed shots whereas the 105 retains spin better.

Are you getting your wedges re-shafted or OEM?

I am going to call Ping and see if they carry them.

Would agree.  I've played many different shafts in my wedges and the Nippon 125 isn't going anywhere.  I usually play my iron shafts in my wedges, but decided to try out the modus 125 wedge shaft and it is excellent.  I have zero complaints about it.

To me the 115 and 125 felt similar in profile just a bit more weight. Since I was going 115 gms in irons, the fitter recommended I go a little heavier in wedges.  I used the 115 when I was using Nippon 105s in irons.

To me and my avg Joe speed, the S400 feel more stout and not as smooth as the 125 wedge.  Because of the smoothness and feel of the 125, I can control trajectory better w 125 than S400.  I can hit the 125 lower and flatter.  I suspect an  xs swinger would feel differently.  I hate soft wedge shafts like the Spinner - the 125 is not of that kind.

Talked with Ping today.  On special order they will install Modus 3 wedge shafts in 105, 115 or 125.

Said it would take 2-4 weeks.

I am going to order  50 / 54 / 58 Stealth 2.0 wedges

Just posted a similar topic...

Does the Modus 125 Wedge take an adjustment period?  Just switched after playing with KBS Tour-V and KBS-Hi-Rev.  The Modus 125 Wedge certainly feels a lot more “stout” compared to these, but you know exactly were the ball is going.  

I was hoping that the Modus 125 Wedge would have a lmore “softer” feel to them similar to the Modus 3 120/125/130’s; but my initial perception is that the Wedge version is very “crisp” and precise.  Is this a fair assessment, or am I missing something?  If I was looking for a softer feel would it be bettter to stick with the “iron” version of the same series such as 120/125/130?

I recommend just trying the Modus 115 wedge shaft. The name is misleading, it weighs 122 grams.

I agree 100%. I just custom ordered TM MG black in 54 & 60 with the black modus 115 wedge shaft. They’re gonna look sick! I’m going to definitely post them once I get them.

When I saw that the 115 wedge was 122g I was sold. They’ll match up perfectly with my modus 120s
