[size="4"]What was the process of these finishes being decided? Will KBS be coming out with more colors? Were there any focus groups or feedback from players involved? Thanks! [/size]

There are already a lot of questions regarding weight but mine is slightly different, I was wondering if every color will be the same weight? I know with certain grips white weighs more because its a heavier dye, I don't know if the same will run true with the coating process you have used. Also why are these only available in taper?

Does the coating on the shaft affect the wt and flex of the shaft? Do you have to alter the shaft construction to allow for the coating?
What problems do you see with over length shafts?
What is the launch and spin effect of hard stepping the KBS Tour Stiff? I hit the Stiff in an S56, and it was the sweetest combo I've ever hit (and I play Mizunos). Also, what is the performance/feel differences between the KBS Tour and C-Taper?
From earlier post:
[color="#1c2837"][size="2"]"What shafts do you recommend for ctaper players in their wedges?"[/size][/color]
[color="#1c2837"][size="2"]And specifically, a ctaper S+. I am currently playing a DG Wedge[/size][/color]
From a metalurgy perspective - what's next? Graphite...steel....carbon fibres...what's the future going to bring us in terms of shaft constructions?
I have played KBS Tours and currently play C-Tapers and love them...My question is will you offer the custom finishes in C-Tapers or is just the Tours?
How durable are the Pearl finishes,and will they be available for both iron and wedge shafts?
When will these shafts be coming to retail and aproxomitly what will their price point be?
