2012 PGA Merchandise Show
Always great to visit our friends at KBS Shafts to talk shop. Kim is so knowledgeable and passionate about what KBS is doing, he even tolerated my 10-15 minutes of questions off camera. This was the chance for many to see the three KBS Tour custom finishes in person and reaction was great. Of course looks are nothing without performance and KBS is confident that their 3 lines of shafts -- C-Taper, Original KBS Tour and KBS Tour 90 -- they have the shaft for any golfer.



KBS C-Taper

    You didn't happen to ask if they are going to release a c taper HYBRID SHAFT by chance?



    That would be sweet.

    Zak (our editor) was hitting one on Demo day. It was blank, but was definitely a c-taper. I'll double-check.

    The C-Taper video is classic, only 5% should be playing this shaft which is all of WRX.



    Nice videos; KBS Tour is my shaft of choice by the way.

    I just ordered a set of black shafts from my club builder and was told they should be here early March.

    Can I ask how much they were?
  • That Bob GuyThat Bob Guy Never settle! Members Posts: 2,574 ✭✭
    ... Now when he said they would be available on the Tour series shafts, would that include the Tour 90?





    And besides the obvious weight difference, what are the differences in playing characteristics between the Tour and the Tour 90



    shafts?

    I have been hitting the KBS C-Taper shafts now, for about 2 months, and I will NEVER hit another shaft. I got rid of my Dynamic gold X100's (don't have any feel in my opinion), project x 6.5's are a little better, but hands down - best in class is the C-Taper for those of you with high swing speeds (about 115 for a 6 iron for me). I used to hit a lot of high ballooning shots with far too much backspin. Now I am hitting penetrating shots and they still have a ton of feel.

    I believe what he says but its funny because dynamic gold s300 is the same as the c taper according to the titleist matrix and yet the s300 is the standard shaft on nearly every iron set.
