Need opinion for shaft selection!!!

6 posts in this topic

So I went and tested the mizuno mp-54 irons...They are super sweet btw but here is my dilemma, the shaft. I hit about about 10 balls with the standard shaft and it felt ok. Then I switched to the KBS Tour S and it felt amazing and the ball flew off. I know what your thinking ok just chose that one. I would but they wanted to fit me for a shaft and since I swing a little fast they thought it would be best for me to choice one of the three. DGX100, Project X 6.5 and KBS C-Taper X....NONE of these felt anywhere close to the KBS tour S. I mean they felt good and I would be happy with any of them. So i guess my question is do you go for feel with the KBS tour S, or what the computer suggested ??? I guess I could learn to hit either but I would hate to have any regrets with that kind of money on the line..

What was the difference in performance?

The Tour will get the ball up more, the C Taper is lower launching.

At the same time, if you don't like the feel ... you won't be happy.

I switched from the KBS Tour to the C-Taper about 5 months ago. I agree that the KBS Tour feels a lot more fluid; the C-Taper has a little more of a wooden feel. However, I love what the ball does with the C-Taper. Lower launch, less spin, and I feel like I can hit long and mid irons that just slice through the wind where with the KBS Tour they would float up and die. The C-Taper feels fine to me now but it did take some time to adjust.

You might try some Prosoft inserts in the C tapers for better feel.

There's really a small marginal difference between the C-Taper and the KBS tour. I found they just felt way better than the X-100. I did not like the dynamic gold at all. Project X was ok, but KBS were way above those two. Since C-Taper cost much more per club, i will go with KBS tour. Not enough difference in the numbers to justify the change.
