Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130 Top Iron Shafts Review
The Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130 retails for $37 (MSRP) and it's built and designed with high-speed swingers in mind, featuring a shaft profile which makes it perfect for late release swings. The Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130 comes with a very traditional 125 grams of weight and it's focused on promoting an easy launch whilst keeping a classic Tour type spin, providing high speed swing golfers with a penetrating flight. For brand aficionados, the new Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130 offers the traditional Nippon feel, but it delivers a modified bend profile for making it suitable to a wide range of golf players, regardless of their skill levels.
After taking this baby for a test drive on the golf course, I discovered that the Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130 offers the same great feel I was accustomed with, which is actually my favorite quality of Nippon made shafts. Also, the Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130 offers a great response, together with the characteristic feel of the Modus Tour line, translating into top-notch performance, all across the board. As you already know, golf is a game where tiny details matter a lot, and the new Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130's 10 grams really make this shaft to stand out from the crowd. You'll be surprised to find out that such a small change in design can make a huge difference in terms of improving your game. The Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130 shafts were slightly modified/improved, but they got better than ever before via a couple of tweaks and the aforementioned 10 grams of additional weight. Also, the butt end is firmer and the tip is softer, while the new profile design is aimed at improving dispersion and control, together with increasing the launch angle, translating into a consistent flight trajectory from top to bottom. In conclusion, the Nippon PRO MODUS3 Tour 130 is very easy to recommend if you're looking for excellent feel and better control, compared to the previous gen (the Tour 125).
