KBS Hi Rev 2.0 115 vs 125


Recommended Posts

According to KBS's website, the 115 is the regular flex, while the 125 is the stiff flex. Is the profile actually stiffer, or is it simply heavier? I play the 115 version in my PM Grind 58* and have no problems with the shaft feeling loose or the ball flight being too high. 6i swing speed is 92-93 and don't load the shaft a ton for reference. My guess is that it's simply a weight difference, but would like to see if that is the truth or not!

To answer your question imo “yes” the 125 is “stiffer” then the 115. But not by much. I think much of that is also due to the extra weight, and that weight adding to the stability of the shaft and your ability to manipulate a heavier shaft. I have played both and echo what you said in regard to the 115 not feeling loose. Much may also be in relation to the types of shots you hit with wedges... i.e. chips, pitches and not as many full swing shots where flex would be as much at play

I basically never make a full swing with my lob wedge anymore. If it’s a perfect number I might, but otherwise I play little half shots with my gap wedge. I’m enjoying the more mid weight of the shaft around the greens, as it helps me feel that the club head isn’t trailing too much.
