  1. After 12 years of my current set (Ping S57’s) I’ve finally taken the plunge and ordered a new set of custom fit Mizuno irons. After a few sessions, which involved taking a couple of different options out onto the course, I’ve placed my order for a set - 4 to PW of Mizuno MP20 irons. I’ve gone for a combo set with MP20 HMB 4 & 5 irons and MP20 MMC in the 6 to PW. KBS C Taper Lite stiff shafts, 1” longer than standard, bent 2 degrees upright and 2 degrees weaker than standard. It’s taken a few fittings to get to this final spec and I want to thank my local pro for being (very) patient with me and my plethora of questions. So. The order is in. Now I’ve just go to wait 4 to 8 weeks (maybe) for them to arrive
  2. Item for sale is a set of Callaway Apex Pro '19 Irons in excellent condition. I've included pictures of the irons with the most wear but they are hardly played. 4-PW set, Lofts are stock, Lie angle is 2* upright and length of set is 1/2" longer than standard. 4-9 irons are shafted with KBS C-Taper 130 X-stiff and have almost new Golf Pride New Decade Align grips. PW iron is shafted with a KBS C-Taper 120 Stiff and has a Golf Pride New Decade Plus4 grey grip. Previously asking $745 Shipped OBO... NOW $700 SHIPPED!
  3. Looking at replacing my KBS C-Taper Lite with the $- Taper Lite, for my Cobra Utility 3 iron. Currently can only really hit the 3 iron off the tee with any confidence. Had a go with a graphite shaft but lost distance that made it not worth having the club in the bag. Thought would be going for the lighter shaft would improve striking off the tee, and improving consistency overall, and that the steel shaft is more likely to keep the distance. Anyone thinking this would be the case?
  4. Great forum, great community, and I am sure one of the knowledgeable members has come across this question before (or, can point me in the right direction). I have used the search bar some to pin point this topic to some effect, but haven't come across the answer that satisfies my curiosity. I already know and understand a dynamic fitting and static fitting work best for shaft fitting and it's hard to beat a good (and patient) fitter. My question pertains to online iron shaft fitting/recommendations from most of the shaft manufacturers and/or online fitting services: How relevant is a question regarding iron distance (say, 6i carry) when your current 6i loft and the set you are interested in purchasing is different? I could ,theoretically, hit my 6i 170 yards using a 26* loft but only hit my buddies 6i 155 yards using 29*...these are just relative numbers to express a questionable point... with all other variables being the same (relatively speaking) but loft. My interpretation of the line of questions for iron shaft recommendation is that it is generating results based on flight and dispersion preferences along with swing speed/power/carry distance. However, if my current 6i is 26* and is allowing me to move the ball 170yds down the fairway, how good is the online fitting tool going to be if the new set I am interested in has a more traditional loft to it? Am I totally off base in this line of thinking? Are the manufacturers shaft recommendations useless? Again, I apologize if this has already been discussed ad nauseam. Happy golfing!
  5. (4) TESTERS WANTED KBS $-Taper Iron Shafts If you're at all into shaft technology, you no doubt know the name Kim Braly -- the KB of KBS Shafts. His fingerprints are all over some of the most popular shafts in golf history, including the Project X and Rifle shafts, and he co-authored patents for Frequency Matching. Since 2008 KBS has been cranking out some of golf's most popular shafts, including the Tour, the Tour V, the C-Taper and the C-Taper Lite. KBS is favorite of OEM's and fitters alike, and this year Braly is introducing his latest creation, the $-Taper. KBS says the $-Taper (let's call it the Money Taper) is a low-spin, mid-launch shaft designed for feel, workability and distance - KBS calls it Tour feel and Money performance (see what they did there?). As always, we care what you think. MyGolfSpy is looking for 4 avid golfers to test, review and keep a set (4-PW) of the new $-Tapers and let the MGS Community know what you think. How To Apply: In this thread (and ONLY in this thread), please tell us the following: First name, home state or province Your current iron/shaft combo Shaft Flex Custom fit? 7-iron carry distance NOTE: This review opportunity is for shafts only - you will be responsible for grips and shaft installation. Also, please make sure your irons will fit .355 taper tip shafts. Good luck, and we'll announce the testers in this thread next week!
  6. (4) TESTERS WANTED KBS TOUR Prototype Hybrid Shafts When it comes to custom fitting, driver and irons shafts tend to get all the love, don't they? Fairway wood shafts get the "junior driver shaft" treatment, and hybrid shafts? Hey, stock it is... Kim Braly - the KB in KBS Shafts - doesn't think that's right. KBS has just introduced its very first graphite shafts, the KBS Tour Prototype Hybrid, and it's a shaft made specifically for hybrids. KBS says the TOUR Prototype transitions seamlessly from irons to hybrids, giving your hybrids the same control, feel and dispersion you'd expect with your irons. MyGolfSpy is looking for 4 avid golfers to set a set of two KBS Tour Prototype Hybrid shafts, and let us know if Kim Braly has, in fact, done it again. HOW TO APPLY: In this thread, please tell us the following... - Your first name & home state/province - Your current hybrid and shaft combo, with lofts - Hybrid/shaft custom fit? - Strengths/weakness of your hybrid game KBS will be providing you with 2 raw, uncut hybrid shafts. You will be responsible for installation and grip.

  8. KBS Tour shafts claimed its fifth Champions Tour victory this year and an additional win with the Hi-Rev shaft at the PGA Tour's CIMB Classic over the weekend. The win at the AT&T Championship came after a 10-foot birdie on the first playoff hole on Sunday. This feat marks the champion's ninth total win using KBS Tour shafts- four Champions events and five PGA events- since 2008. The AT&T Championship winner has trusted the KBS Tour in his irons for the last six years and recently won two majors: the Senior PGA Championship and the Senior U.S. Open. At the AT&T Championship, he led the field with 19 birdies. This player's most recent accomplishment places him at the top of the leader board for the Charles Schwab Cup. KBS' victory at the CIMB Classic was again decided by a birdie on the first hole of the playoff round. The winning player used the KBS Hi-Rev shaft in his lob wedge. “We are thrilled for this Champion's Tour player and all of his accomplishments in 2013,” said Kim Braly, director of tour operations and research and development at KBS. “His victories at the Senior PGA Championship and the Senior U.S. Open, combined with this win at the AT&T Championship, make for a terrific season. We are extremely proud that he was one of the first players on the PGA to switch into KBS shafts and wish him the best of luck with the remainder of his season.” www.KBSGolfShafts.com
