DG S300 vs KBS Stiff

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Can anyone compare these 2 shafts.   Opinions on Which one plays stiffer?   Trajectory differences, etc...

Thanks in advance.

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?

post #7 of 7

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.
