Looking at changing shafts. Did a demo day and hit the KBS C Taper. They only had S and X. By all indications I should be S+. Mostly weight and based on the fact I've played X100 for 20 years. ( Also weight is #1 in fitting. ?)
Question. The clubs I'm looking at only one offers the S+. The other two have only S or X. What would soft stepping an X two times do to playability of the shaft? Higher ball flight? Or just softer playing in each shaft compared to straight in?

    I thought of that then figured they would charge through the roof for special order... Trying to make it as easy as possible. Thanks.

    Stuart. That's interesting. I had no idea they would play heavier. That throws a little wrench in this.
    So, the S flex would be same? 7-9 gr heavier? And play slightly softer?

    That's funny, I thought that soft stepping was taking a shaft intended for say a 7 iron and installing it in an 8 iron head and cutting to 8 iron length.

    I meant to ask. If a S is hard stepped would it play heavier? Or lighter?
    I think with all this info I may just go with Titleist as they offer the S+.
