I've tried both .... DG300S is a little stiffer but also a bit heavier, KBS Stiff is just a bit softer, a bit lighter and it feels a bit more "alive" ....

Trajectory depends a bit on your swingspeed, but in general I would say it to be about the same, but the KBS launches a bit higher.

It is personal, so why don't you try both and experience what you like best !

+1 on what Gerald wrote. S300 feels stiffer and is a tad heavier. I'd say the KBS tour is between the S200 and the S300 in stiffness and weight, but closer to S200 in trajectory. (my experience)

As far as feel on impact is concerned though, KBS Tour wins hands down (for me anyway). It feels softer than it plays.

Informative review. I am currently playing S300's, but would like to test drive the KBS'.

Ditto on that.  The comment that I find intriguing is the feels softer than it plays.  To get the performance of the DG S300 with a softer feel....sounds like I need a test drive!

Currently playing XP S300. What should I expect if I moved to KBS Tour Stiff?

I was playing Miz MP-57 with TTDG S300.  Recently switched to Titleist AP2 with KBS Tour shaft, S flex.  Two data points, but I think the MP-57 and AP2 heads are comparable in weight and launch.

The KBS tour shaft has a slightly lower swingweight, and I know the KBS is a slightly lighter overall shaft.  For me, the shaft feels lighter and faster.  I noticed a slightly higher launch angle at first relative to my MP-57s with the TTDG.  I brought the ball down a bit by shortening my backswing slightly and switching from a Pro-V1x to a Penta-TP ball.  Overall, I like the shaft much better.  Feels like I can hit powerful tight fades without having to swing hard and without losing much distance.  With the old clubs, a cut 3-iron would take 20-yards off of the distance (from about 220 to 200).  Now, I hit a full hard 3 about 220, and a fade is around 212-215.  I did notice a few times I hit an erratically long iron shot (6-iron from 185 blew over the green 20 yards, for example), but I think that was a combination of factors because I was making a lot of tweaks at once.  Overall I really like the KBS after playing Mizuno and TTDG for 20 years.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      On Craigslist around Phoenix we used to see loads of irons in the early part season because people would buy clubs they can't hit *cough* blades *cough*, or just clubs that weren't fitted or they didn't like and then sell them. That's how I got my nikes before they were stolen.   I don't buy into the new distance drivers and such, but the forgiveness is definitely a major improvement. I take my old Wooden Woods to the range every once in a while and not only do misfits cause massive distance loss, they just fly horrible as well. The new stuff is definitely helpful to worse players but if Ben hogan could drive a wooden club over 300 then why is it so impressive to driver a super forgiving driver over 300? idk, just my $0.02
    • Injury Question
      With my insurance I can't afford a MRI.  I got one for my rotator cuff a 2 years ago and my insurance only paid $80 of the bill .  I'm still paying the bill since its either pay off it quickly and struggle with my school loans or pay it off slowly and pump more money into those things I used for school.  Without an MRI, I'm not sure how much help a doctor would be able to give me.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Everyone gets double bogeys. Even the pros. The pros just don't get them often.  We all have blow up holes. Mine tend to come in pairs. Then I'll settle down and hit "the shot." I consider an 8 a blow up hole. It's usually the result of a bad tee shot. Although on a real fast green once it was the result of a four putt.... in a tournament.... when I missed a 1 foot putt. Another thing we tend to do is try to do quick fixes during our rounds. Don't. They don't work. Play with the game you have. Fix your problem at the driving range later. If your driver is in the woods constantly, leave it in the bag for the round, and practice with it on the range. Hit an iron off the tee if you need to keep the ball in play. 
    • Injury Question
      Okay, so this isn't exactly something recent.  In fact its something I did in August, that seems like it just doesn't want to heal completely. The injury in question occurred on my downswing on August 7th, it felt as those I pulled every muscle from underneath my arm pit to the bottom of my ribs.  I gingerly tried a few swings after that and why it was tender I guess endorphins got me through the rest of the round (2 holes).  I probably should have taken a few weeks off to let everything heal after this, but seeing how I had lost 70lbs over the course of 4 months and would go onto lose 130+ lbs by October (mostly through golf) I was kind of blinded by the motivation to keep pushing myself.  I played with severe discomfort for a couple of weeks, and then it kind of faded though it felt tight to make a reaching movement with my left arm. Now months later, the pain is basically gone when it comes to golf, but every now and again if I do some unknown action with my swing I get what feels like popping sensation and the discomfort comes back for that swing.  The tightness when reaching never really went away either.  Most of the time it isn't a problem, its just something that occasionally bothers me and I was wondering if anyone has had something similar?  I'm currently trying to strengthen the muscles around that area to see if responds to what eventually got me over a partially torn rotator cuff.
