Difference between DG 120 S300 & S400

Anyone know the difference between the new DG 120 S300 and S400. I know the old regular version of the DG's were a matter of weight tollerances  but the new 120's have the same exact weight of 118 grams. I'm trying to decide between the two for a new set of Mizuno JPX 919 tour's or possibly forged. Is one slightly stiffer than the other? slightly stiffer tip maybe. I have heard the 120 S300 play slightly softer than the regular S300's so maybe going to the S400 120 would be better. Any feedback would be great thanks.

Someone might have to help on this. From what I understand the S400 was the tour issue initial offering for this shaft. Also had an X100 flex. Then later came the standard R300, S300, and X100. Now I have no idea what or if there is any difference between these two X100 versions. If it's like the 130g version then maybe the S400 just has the same tighter tolerances as the Tour Issue DG130. Again doing some guessing here. According to TT, if you played the 130 S400, the 120 S400 is comparable.

Thanks for the input. I used the standard S300 for 20 yrs but with the old sensicores. I have heard the new DG 120 S300 are the same but play a smidge softer so I figured maybe go the S400 route. From what I can gather, the 120 S300 and 400 are identical but if it’s true that they are and the only Diff is tighter weight tolerance then I might as well do the 120 S400?. Also to note, the fitter can put Sensicore inserts into the 120’s to make it a 122g shaft which might be heaven for me.

Far as I know...the S400 is only available in a tapered tip.

One more note on this. I have been told by a few fellas that have the new DG 120 S300 that it plays a smidge softer than the original DG S300 so they suggest Hard stepping the 120 S300 once to match the performance of the original. MY question would be, wouldn't just going the DG120 S400 route do the same thing? to match the performance of the original S300? A golfer could go nuts trying to figure this out..

The only difference is really weight and tolerances. Ive been using the same set of DG S400's in my irons for over 10 years. Being that these shafts are weight sorted, if you get S200 or S400s you really like through the set, keep them forever. Theres a chance your new set could play completely different.

completely understand that since I had the DG S300 W/Sensicore in my old irons which i also loved, Mizuno T zoid pro's. However they are 20 yrs old now and it's time to move on and I'm not getting any stronger so The new DG 120 makes sense. That being said, the New DG 120 S300 and S400 are the exact same weight 118g, which is my dilema. In my warped Golf mind I think the best way to replicate my old shafts is to put sensicore inserts into the new DG 120 S400 or S300 and make them 122g with the same feel as before and a touch lighter.

    • When I met my wife, she quickly learned of my devotion to the game. For first couple years, she wanted it to be my thing. Recently, she has taken an interest in wanting to try it. Either way is good by me. Would be fun as a family with our kid to go golf. But, either way, I’ll have my time with the game. 
    • You need to remember that the fulcrum for a swing weight scale sits at 14 inches from the butt end of the club. That means that the majority of whatever shaft you are using will be out past the fulcrum. Therefore the shaft weight plays a greater influence on the head side of the club vs. the grip and why a heavier shaft will increase SW more than a lighter one. Of course there are also shaft balance points to take into consideration but for this example I am assuming our hypothetical shafts are the same other than material and weight. Your example above would depend on the weights of the two shafts since 38.5 to 39.5 would usually equal 6 SWP. Your weight difference breakeven would be around 54g to tip the scale either way.

    • Don't get your hopes up.  Women do a lot of things to attract a mate.  The only way to know if she is into golf for real, and not just to get a mate, is if she goes and plays on her own.  My wife and I have been a couple since 2006.  She has never went to play golf on her own or with just her and her friends.  She will only go if I ask her to.  I've tried getting her to play and take it up as a hobby, but I think she only got into it because I liked it, and she wanted to do something together.  She doesn't practice or even touch her clubs.  It's like pulling teeth to get her to come out.  Now, if we go somewhere on a trip and I take my clubs, she wants to ride in the cart with me and watch.  To her credit, she was walked and rode many times with me, but she doesn't play!  I think now that the kids are starting to show an interest in it, especially my daughter who hits on the sim with me some, she's starting to show an interest again.  In fact, once I built the golf tent for the simulator room, she came out in pretty cold weather and hit balls for a good long while.  She had a nice push draw going too!  
    • Have you looked into “Tiger Stepping”?  I’ve always had trouble flighting down wedges with wedge specific shafts but have just lived with it.  My best wedge flight came from my old Ping Eye2’s that were before someone came up with wedge shafts.  Check it out, I think it has to do with using your sets 8 iron in the wedges.
