TESTING SIGNUP: ALL-NEW KBS PROTOTYPE


Recommended Posts

City / State: dallas, tx
Zip Code: 75248
Handicap? 12
Current Irons? Tommy armour 845 silver scot 3-pw
Current shafts? Dg s300, +3/4"
Driver swing speed? 105
6i Swing speed? 86
Current Trajectory? Very high
Preferred Trajectory? Lower, preferably mid
Any other notes you’d like provide: as a tall person, 6'4" I tend to get very steep with my swing, this path causes a very high trajectory. I like the feel of the s300's, and they have been the best performer for me, but still too high. Have recently been working on keeping my wrist from flipping and distance has increased, but still high flight.

A bad day on the course is better than
a good day at work!

Could really use an increase in distance and this seems like the ticket. I also have access to a Flightscope so I would be able to provide data to help with the evaluation.

[*]Any other notes you’d like provide. - I was very impressed with the C-Taper and would love the opportunity to see what else is coming from KBS. I've built quite a few sets of irons using C-Taper shafts and everybody that I've urged to go with these shafts have been very satisfied. Teaming any shaft w/the Miura 1957 will quickly point out all aspect of the shaft (feel, trajectory, load profile, etc). I also have 2 full sets of the 1957's so, like when I first tested the C-Taper, I can quickly and easily test shafts side by side with an otherwise identically built club.

KBS just gave our team the heads up they have a new performance shaft design coming to market SOON and they are looking for a small batch of GolfWRX members to [b]TEST & REVIEW[/b] the shafts out in the public forum! KBS also mentioned they would help the selected members get their new shafts built up for [b]FREE![/b]

We’ll select the testers next week on 5/28 so make sure to post your information using this thread for a chance to be one of the lucky few…

Here are the details we’ve been given thus far:[list]
[*]LUCKY TESTERS
[*]SETS SHIP NEXT WEEK
[*]KBS WILL HELP TESTERS GET THEIR [i]NEW[/i] SHAFTS BUILT FOR FREE
[*]KBS rep’s mentioned the new performance shaft is a lighter weight construction capable of producing a 5% increase in distance over competitor models. However, that’s all they are saying at this point!

Notes: swing changes this season to lower trajectory and reduce right to left flight have resulted in shaky play and a handicap that has slipped from 2.5 to 6.5. Things are starting to click, however, and I'm ready to play golf instead of golf swing.
