Steelfiber 110 Stiff VS KBS $ Taper 120 Stiff


Recommended Posts

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

Bumping this thread as I'd like some insight between the 2 as well. I play project x 6.5s now but feel like they are killing my elbows even with prosoft inserts. Since these 2 shafts are now available in the new MP 20 line, I'll be trying them. I love the ball flight and spin with the project x so I want to find something similar with a bit less harshness.

Don’t overlook the PX Catalyst 100 graphite. Very stable, piercing flight, great balance and feel but good feedback. Similar to Steelfiber feel wise but to me it’s a better balanced shaft and a firmer tip. Ctaper is a joint destroyer in my opinion. I switched from the $taper to the Catalyst. The $taper launched high for me and seemed erratic dispersion wise. The spin was ok but it felt pretty loose and I was using the 125S+

I went from the kbs tours in my ap2 to steelfibre i110 after elbow surgery. Love them, ballflight, dispersion, etc is hard to distinguish between the two. The big difference is the feel and shock absorbtion in the i110 is awesome. I have also had the project x and the three would be hard to tell apart.people say that this a graphite shaft that feels very forgiving but plays like steel. Best move I ever made

+1, I had KBS Tour V before my i110's and the transition was seemless. I have been VERY happy with them.
