I just saw this short write-up on the forthcoming putter shaft offerings from KBS:

 

https://www.pgatour.com/equipmentreport/2019/01/23/golf-clubs-new-equipment-pga-show-demo-day-2019.html

 

Unfortunately there was little substantive info provided. Anybody have any details about the technology in these shafts, how they compare to other putter shafts, etc.? I hope the Golf WRX team at the PGA Merch Show get some pictures of these, too.

It might finally be possible to buy a black single bend putter shaft what a day. Also if I remember correctly these shafts are supposed to be stiffer and produce less flex and vibrations. Similar to the new callaway and stability shafts.

 

I wonder how they will compare in price to the stability shafts.

I’m guess they are going to be a lot cheaper if they are metal and no graphite.

Really disappointed in the .370 tip size. I was pretty excited for these to come around, but I'm not sure that I own any putters that will fit. Hopefully more options coming down the line.

 

What putters are still .355? Byron? Older Scottys? Maybe some PINGs?

 

Most Scottys with a plumbers neck are 0.355 are'nt they? My Button Back Newport 2 screams for a black shaft but I think its 0.355 on that one.

Anyone know if this would work on my cameron & crown 5MB? Can't find hosel size info on anywhere, just know it's a single bend

 

All Scotty putters that I am aware of , using a single bend shaft , use a .355"

made for / preprioritory tip shaft. The one exception being the Studio Design

#5 . Which used a ridiculous small and hard to find .285" tip .

This is not at all what I wanted to hear LOL. Looks like I'll be wrapping it in shrink wrap myself. Thanks for the info

I have recently put one in my TM Spider. The shaft is entirely reinforced from the butt to the tip. It is MUCH more stable. You can feel the stiffness of the shaft, but with that said I noticed very little decrease in overall feel. I was expecting it to lose all feel but it is actually a very nice feeling shaft. Very satisfied with it.

I have one but mostly because of it being matt black. It is a little stuffer when bending it by hand vs the usual TT shaft. Putting with it there isn’t much difference in feel.

 

I also have a stability shaft with the same hosel and grip that I can put on the same putter head (machine M1). That shaft is a whole different feel and is awesome.

Anyone tipping these yet?

 

I would really like to know this as well. I'm having a 33" putter built with a longish flow neck and I have the KBS shaft to put in it. My problem is with that length of putter if I just install the shaft and then butt trim to length my grip will hang all the way down into where the shaft starts to taper down. A lot of guys talk about tip trimming .370 putter shafts several inches with no problem but if I take an inch or two out of this already very stiff shaft is it going to seriously effect the feel?

 

Edit to add: I already called KBS and didn't gain much there.. I guess with the shaft being so new and probably not a lot of them out there yet he didn't have much info for me.

They dont seem to be in a hurry to make them in .355. I sent an email a month ago, they have no time frame on when the .355s will be ready.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
