Nippon 950 Vs Nippon Modus 105 Shaft Comparison
In the following comparison overview, I tell you about the pros and cons of the Nippon 950 and Nippon Modus 105 shafts.
Nippon 950 Shaft Overview
“The Nippon 950 comes in regular (94.5g), stiff/regular (97g), stiff (98g) and extra stiff flex (104g).”
I tested the stiff, 98g version. At first, I nearly forgot that this was a steel shaft. It feels nearly as fluid as a graphite shaft.
The kick point is in the middle and is easily activated. This means really good club head speed.
But the Nippon 950 wasn’t as stable as the Modus 105. The Nippon 950 yielded wider dispersion and less predictable spin rates.
Nippon Modus 105 Shaft Overview
“The Modus 105 comes in regular (103), stiff (106.5g) and extra stiff (112g) flex.”
I tested the stiff, 106.5g version. The Modus 105 has less torque than the Nippon 950 and the kick point is higher.
The launch was surprisingly high but my spin rates were staying within a reasonable range.
I liked the control of the Modus compared to the Nippon 950. But the Modus 105 isn’t for players with deliberate tempos.
“The Nippon 950 is good for slower swing speed players while the Nippon Modus 105 is for powerful swingers who want to maintain stability.”
