Since i bought and have been playing the Cobra King F6 irons, I wondered just what FST shafts are. I hit them in the store, of course, and liked them. The salesman said they're medium launch and torque. After about 25 rounds, i know i can hit these low or high, they have a boring medium natural trajectory. So i did some research and found that FST stands for FEMCO Steel Technology, a division of Far East Machine and Tool Company, and they're the 2nd largest steel shaft manufacturer in the world. They formed a partnership with KBS Shafts in 2008 to manufacture all the KBS Tour line. FST is known for leading technological advancements in CNC manufacturing. So effectively, Cobra put low-cost KBS shafts in their King F6s to hold pricing down. I think this is also evidenced by the next step up in the Cobra iron line, the King Forged Tec, which come with KBS Tour shafts as standard equipment. So the F6s effectively have shafts which perform nearly as well as premium shafts from KBS, albeit at a much lower cost. I think this just shows Cobra's committment to provide value and savings to their customers, while producing high performance equipment. You can compare that attitude with other companies which charge a premium for their name brand and offer no discounts. Just sayin'. Talk amongst yourselves.
