[/quote] Where did you get the shafts from? [/quote] Why does that matter?? Of course they came straight from KBS.

  4. I played the W the last year + and just put a 70 tx into my BB Alpha 5-6 weeks ago and absolutely love it. So much more feel. Ball flight isn't that much different to be honest. Just a big difference if feel.
  5. Chili, If you wouldn't mind clearing your inbox I would like to send you a PM.

Some of the outdoor-only locations like Irvine are set up on a range where only range balls are allowed because of the course. The Scottsdale outdoor at Grayhawk does use Pro V's. All other indoor facilities have every ball to choose from. Is that disappointing? Yes, but not the

  8. Guys here is the thing you have to understand with the balls. Some of the outdoor-only locations like Irvine are set up on a range where only range balls are allowed because of the course. The Scottsdale outdoor at Grayhawk does use Pro V's. All other indoor facilities have every ball to choose from. Is that disappointing? Yes, but not the end of the world. Your testing is still apples to apples. He tested his old driver and new driver with the same ball. Could there be a difference when you get onto the course? Absolutely, but it isn't going to change the fact that he gained 20 yards.

The first pic is a comparative step pattern of a KBS Tour R 5 iron on the left and the "new" KBS 105(which weighs 109g) on the right. [attachment=2923854:kbs105.4.JPG] [/quote] Did you measure the diameter at the steps ? As I can see from the picture the steps are not exactly the same, as they weren´t on the Tour-V compared to Tour. Tour-V is slightly thicker and the steps are some mm differnce than Tour. Could this be the case also ? Can´
  10. As would I. All this "new" shaft is is a f****** kb tour soft stepped once.
  11. [quote name='Farst' timestamp='1440526714' post='12206530'] oops I miss labeled the whole set. oh well no one will notice [/quote] I would understand if this was a set, but it isn't. It's a bag of six of the same shafts sent to be tested not installed. 18 of the 18 were labeled this way.
  12. Below are more pictures. The first pic is a comparative step pattern of a KBS Tour R 5 iron on the left and the "new" KBS 105(which weighs 109g) on the right. I have also had the chance now to weigh the R,S,X flexes and all weight roughly 3-4 grams heavier than what the website says. Once again, nothing out of the ordinary for KBS as their products always range from 3-4g light all the way to 3-4g heavy with the same shaft. I also tested the frequencies of the shafts mentioned above. Both came out to 5.0 and 5.1 respectively. The second pic is the same two shafts now showing the length
  13. Ok I will try to gather more pics for evidence. And to let you all know I am not some weekend hack that ordered some shafts to try out. I build clubs for a living.
  14. Normally I would never do this but this time KBS has crossed the line. In testing the "new" KBS 105 I came across something that seemed extremely odd...even for them. As I weighed the "105x" 6 iron it came out 118g. Nothing too crazy for KBS as most of the stuff is well over or under what they claim the weight to be. But as I looked closer at the sticker I noticed something strange...it was covering up another sticker. What is legible under the top sticker shocked me. It's a sticker for a KBS-Tour S-Flex #5.(as you can see if you look closely at the picture I will post) This isn't the o
