Ok, so.....

About the clubs - heads are very pretty and feel incredible. Love the aesthetics for sure. The feel reminds me of my old flame, the MP64s.

As for the performance, well... lets say the modus 120 stiff is def a different animal than the Ctapers. I was surprised to see how low I was hitting them. The apex was half of my normal. I could also tell the spin also seemed quite low (no monitor). Balls were not apexing and diving. Went back to my T100s and boom, no problems.
For sure the modus 120 is a horrendous fit for me. I dont time that shaft up well at all!

I really like the heads though. Tempted to shaft then up with some backup shafts to see. Or I may just return them. Gotta see what backup shaftsare laying around.
Yeah, that sounds like a crap shaft fit. So you pulled them I think, what are going to try to reshaft with?

I’m likely going to make up a franken-set.
Here is what I have and will likely do...
4 iron - Modus 105 X flex
5-6 - KBS $taper S+
7 to PW KBS Ctaper S+
These are the shaft I have laying around. I think it could actually work pretty well for me.

Dang. I think it might for me too. I used to play my apex combo 4-6 $ Taper, 7-AW C-Taper and it worked really well.

I could use some of that action with the P770's. Those short irons get up. I can't decide which set is getting AMT's and which is getting something black though..

Just waiting on some BB&F ferrules, hoping to build them up this weekend.

no skill?
Ordered a vest. I searched Amazon for a Prime Day deal on a launch monitor and/or golf simulator. On the US site the Rapsodo Mevo is on sale for 20% off but it's not on sale on the Canadian side... The US site wants $120 for shipping across the border FFS... :angry:

Actually bought these yesterday when I was at Bettinardi, didn't have time to post them last night as it was getting late. I am an old man, don't forget. :laughing:

Best purchase I’ve made.
I'm assuming you mean the S62...The only reason I haven't bought one yet is the Garmin site says the estimated availability is two to three weeks. And I have a $100 off coupon for there so that's why I need to get it from them lol
