  1. Can anyone with some experience with KBS Shafts tell me more about these iron shafts? I attached a picture of the serial number & model number of 4 iron shaft and the KBS Label I havent seen this type of label before. They are .355 Taper tip. I took them in on a trade, story was they came from a mini tour player 5-10 years back? I weighed the 4 iron shaft pull and at cut standard length, it weighs 118 grams. Thanks in advance
  2. Interested in J15s but have a question on the lengths. Is there any reason while some of the irons are in .25 increments and others at .5 give or take instead of all being the same length increments? Just curious Thanks
  3. Thanks for those that chimed in. I think I am going to try Stuarts suggestion of trying the driver shaft tipped 1/2" first and go more if needed. I think I am going to stay with the 7x though in driver also. Thanks again
  4. I have a TM M5 Driver head. I want to match same specs as my 3 wood. My 3 Wood is 2016 M2 and is a glue in head shafted w/ a Graphite Design ADDI 7X Tipped 1". The spin rate is super low with a boring launch with this M2 / ADDI Combo. I understand I could get another ADDI 7X and tip it 1" but was wondering about the aspect of glue in head vs in a TM Tip and also the difference of tipping in a fairway wood vs a driver as most fairway woods are designed to be tipped. The shaft I have in my driver now is a Kurokage Silver TINI 60X which is good but want the same spin rate and boring trajector
  5. I ended up cutting them off. Thanks for the input.
  6. I have some steelfibers with 3/4" extensions that I want to remove. Will heating up with a heat gun damage the shafts or is it best to cut them off? Thanks for looking
  7. Anyone played both of these shafts? I am currently gaming C-Taper S+ 125s and love the low spin and trajectory but the harshness and weight are taking their toll on me as I am getting older. These seem very hard to play in between shots too. I have played the Steelfiber 110 Stiff prior and regretting getting rid of them, as the feel is phenomenal. I am looking for feel, low spin and mid launch and tight dispersion (I guess we are all though). I also play in the wind quite a bit, so that is a factor but the Steelfibers seem to do well in the wind, the $ Tapers? Thanks for looking

Generally people will want to use a heavier shaft in the 3wd than the driver (or lighter shaft in the driver compared with the fairways). Typically 5 gm per inch difference
  10. > @Kale_m said: > Try a ad-di 6x tipped 1/2” Kale, I see you have the tensei pro orange tx which is on my radar for driver shaft. Do you feel if they are tipped same amount that they play equal in flex ? I was thinking a tensei pro orange 60tx from TM where they tip 1" would be perfect.
  11. any club makers that have knowledge of this? Thanks
  12. I currently have a 3 wood which I love the set up. It does not spin much and goes just as far as my driver. It is a 2016 M2 Glue in Hosel w/ Tour AdDi 7x Tipped 1" I am looking for a driver shaft that would play similar in spin and ball height, mainly spin. My current driver set up is a 2016 M2 9.5 w/ Kuro Kage Dual Core Tini Silver 60X. I dont think their is any tipping on it. I could put another Ad Di 7x Tipped 1" in the driver but not sure on playability on a Driver w/ Tip vs my glue in 3 wood. Thanks for looking

  14. So mine is not manufactured just the natural way my body has wanted to work. When timing is on my ballstriking is really good, when timing gets off, bad contact and 2 way miss. Not playing near is much so timing has been an issue which led me to this post. I have a high left arm and hand and my left hand is bowed like Dustin Johnson, not purposely, again just the way my body works. I dont get near the width that DJ produces though. Years ago people would ask how I make contact with the left wrist, now they think it is cool because DJ does it.
  15. So basically, I have used the float load technique as my takeaway and transition for the past 30 years plus of me playing golf. I never heard the term float load until recently. I think my technique came from a Jack Nicklaus VHS of Golf My Way where he stressed "low and slow" on the takeaway. I know there are positives and negatives to this approach, but I want to be more consistent with my ballstriking and since I am not able to play or practice as much as I used too, my float load, which is TIMING DEPENDENT, has suffered and is inconsistent. I still play in some tournaments at the l
