Mizuno JPX 919's - Help me choose shafts

4 posts / 2721 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).

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

    • I’ll give you a little inside information. The ZX series of irons, woods, hybrids, and utilities will be released in the US in January 2021. (You may be able to procure a set from Europe prior to then, but I don’t really want to pay an import fee). First welcome to TST. Secondly what exactly are you looking for when it comes to ball-flight. I play C-Taper 125S in my irons to try to bring my ball flight down, but I still have 110 foot peak height, who would have thunk it. Here’s an out of the box suggestion that might help your decision, see if you can find a 7-iron 785 head on EBay (I’m not sure you can but it’s worth a shot), or buy 2 identical Maltby TE Forged 7-irons, if they have Project X get one with 6.5 hard-stepped and one with 7.0 soft-stepped. Go to the range and see if you notice a difference. Most importantly. It’s probably not that big of a deal at our handicap level. We can shoot 85 about as easily as we can shoot 70. Sharpen your tools and learn to play boring golf. It’ll change the way you play the game.
    • Recently I have been doing something I haven’t done in a while. Avoiding blow-up rounds. I have been playing the kind of golf I’ve wanted to always play. Boring. Pedestrian. Stay out of the shit, call the zoo kind of rounds. Ho-hum kind of golf. The last round I shot in the 80s was in August and that was an 81. My last five rounds have been 73, 76, 78, 73, 71. The last one was pretty boring. I had back to back bogeys on the 2nd and 3rd holes, then birdied the 5th and 6th (pedestrian birdie at 5, 2 putt at the par 5 after a 3-wood on the green straight into the fan from 235 yards) Nearly drove the 395-yard 6th (relax it was straight downwind and as the crow flies its only 340), got up and down for birdie. Then made 12 boring pars in a row for an even-par 71. 12 GIR, 18 nGiR, putted average. I guess I’ve learned how to be that boring golfer. I’ve been fighting a bit of a hook, so I said, “The hell with it, it’s what I’ve got. I’ll just adjust my target accordingly”. I guess having a one-way miss is a good problem to have.
    • Day 121.  More carpet putting;  ruler, putter, real balls.  Getting some decent speed ones past the 36" marker consistently. 
    • Day 48 - Moved my mat indoors, took some swings working on my new setup.
