    I just got fitted into the Modus 120X last week. I have hit the 105, 120, 125 in both S and X. Ball flight and trajectory was very similar to me. They all were a mid flight trajectory. The 105S might have been the highest of the 6 shafts, but not by a lot. To me the biggest difference was feel. They are all very smooth. The smoothest I've ever hit. The 120 is more linear...less active then the 105/125. I would hit them all. Find the one that feels the best and gives you your best numbers and if your trajectory is still higher than you like, maybe bend the irons a degree or two stronger..try to flight it down. But, long story shot, I didn't see that much difference.
    What kinda swing speed are you putting down? Are you a normal high ball hitter?

      I was 92mph with a 7 iron. Yeah, not super high, but I can get up in the air.

        Sounds good. I fight a high flight. Definitely need a shaft that will help get the flight down. Debating between these two and will likely go with the Wedge 125 in the wedges.

          I'm like to play a weaker shaft in my SW and LW. I will put a 120x in my GW, but then go modus wedge 115 in the other 2 wedges. It's just a personal preference. Find a shop with the Mizuno shaft optimizer! That thing is legit!

                          We had some fun last night and Replaced the $-taper 120 with Modus 105x for today’s round. I have zero experience with modus 3’s until today other than a few swings at a demo or something.

                          First, the certainly don’t feel stout like X flex sometimes can. I still was able to swing smooth but they never felt too stiff. However where they really seemed to shine was when I went after it and as the day went on I gained more confidence my

                          Shot of the day was a 5 iron across some trouble from 200 out slightly downhill all carry to just off the green in the fringe. Chipped up for eagle and had a kick in birdie.

                          Compared to the $-taper the ball flight was definitely lowered which is exactly was I was looking for and the feel is still really good. We played in some good wind today and did not see any ballooning like I was seeing before.

                            pretty impressive that they can make a low launch lightweight shaft, isn’t it? it’s definitely a fun golf shaft.

                              It really is. Today’s round wasn’t as good of a ball striking round for me but excited to see how these perform through the season. Saw more of the same today on well struck shots. Lower initial launch, good peak and plenty of spin to hold greens
