Mizuno JPX 919's - Help me choose shafts

4 posts / 2841 viewsLast Reply

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago I was fitted into a set of Wilson C300 with a KBS Tour 105 Stiff shaft (110-114g). The shop did not have any Mizunos in stock however so I have now decided to buy the 919 Forged blind.

I have the following shafts (in stiff) to choose from:

KBS Tour (120g)
Project X - LZ 6.0
Project X - Rifle 6.0
Nippon Modus 105
Nippon Modus 120
True Temper DG 105 (s300)
True Temper DG 120 (s300)

Which shaft do you think is the closest to the KBS Tour 105? Or which one should I get? My swing speed with my irons is between 80-85 mph (driver around 105 mph) and carry distance with a 7 iron is around 155 yards. 

Unfortunately I do not have time to go for another custom fitting.

I tested the Nippon Modus 105 against the KBS Tour 105 and found them very similar. I thought the Nippon felt a bit smoother at contact. They were both put in a Mizuno head (MP-60 and MP-57).

This site has comparisons using a code.

Modus 105 and DG 105 will be the closest. Weight is about the same as is the flight.

I have just bought the JPX 919 forged with Dg105 s300 shafts. They replaced a set of irons with Xp 105 s300’s. 

 

I would say say the Dg105’s are slightly stiffer and slightly lower launching than the modus. Took me about 20 balls  to really get used to them. Love em and the stickers are cool
