Oh wow! I've been playing KBS Tour V's in my irons and Apex UT. And I just put the Hybrid Proto in my Apex UT and love it. Can't wait to hear the story on these.

It’s actually the “Tour Driven” driver shaft. category is the flex rating. 4 is X and 5 is TX. Mid launch, mid/low spin.

I love KBS, but these look cheap. I'd prefer KBS stay in their lane( C and $ Taper are fantastic) . In a world where Low/Low sells, they release Mid/Mid and with a boring paint job to boot.

Aesthetics can be debated. Probably not a look for everybody but red/black very much consistent with other KBS products. And not everybody needs or wants low/low. Some do for sure. Some want to believe they do and are wrong though.

Look Cheap? How does graphics and paint relate to anything? Don't like the scheme? Cool everyone has different tastes. But to label em "Cheap" seems a stretch.

considering how little of the shaft is actually visible, I don't know how we can come to that conclusion. I mean the tensei shafts are plain black with a simple band towards the top. Is that cheap? to me, this looks like from we can see to be a black shaft, with a red band somewhere... Seems simple, but that does not mean cheap.

Back in the day everyone had a Diamana Blueboard glued in - mid/mid. That was the rage then and still is for those who love low lofted heads so you blend it with a mid/mid for piercing bombs. If it’s as smooth as the Iron shaft $ Taper or Tour Taper I am in and the colors will match the rest of my black and red bag. Nothing but smoothness from KBS - oh and the prototype graphite hybrid shaft that’s super smooth too. Offerings in TX now that’s even smoother.

I think the categories will line up as follows. Pure speculation though,

 

1=R

2=R+

3=S

4=S+

5=X

 

Again I have no factual basis just speculation!

 

 

Titleist TSi2 9° Ventus Blue 6X

Titleist TSi2 16.5° Ventus Blue 8X

T200 Utility 3/20° MODUS 130 S

T100 4-PW,GW MODUS 130 S

Vokey SM9 TC 54° S + 60° D

I still have the original BB in my driver and 3w (both PING G20) and it is smooth indeed. Had a fitting last week and can’t find a longer, better feeling combo. As far as looks go it’s fine. Whatever sends the ball the farthest down the fairway is the best looking IMO.
