- John, California

- Cobra F6 20.5* Diamana 82 S (blue)

- Not custom fit, just knew what I wanted and did my research

- my strength is that I've never really had much trouble flighting hybrids, I've always been able to hit it somewhat low if I need to. Biggest weakness right now is a bad case of the lefts.


Great opportunity, good luck to everyone

Thomas McClafferty

Looking at getting 2 KZG hybrids

Currently no hybrids due to giving back the taylormade 20* to the guy who lent it to me.

Strength is I hit them very high weakness is unable to keep them lower.

I get all my clubs except hybrids or woods fit.

Bill, Georgia

Snake Eyes, Snake Eyes Shaft   17, 20 & 22

Shaft was part of a Golfsmith kit that I assembled

tighter dispersion


Currently using KBS C 120 Taper shafts on Mizuno irons and they provide a slightly stiff feel with a lower ball flight but lots of backspin. Really fun to hit darts with these shafts.

- Ed. Cape Town, South Africa. YES I know its not the US but I'll pay for shipping!! Or they could arrange with my fitter here who is the KBS agent in SA


- Callaway Apex Pro 18* - Matrix Ozik HM4 Black 85x

- Shaft yes

- Its my go to club, I can easily hit it out there 260yards if needed off the tee, or a nice little soft cut 230yards,
Play the KBS Tour 130x's in my irons so would love to try this out, hopefully the 95g as I need a bit more weight than the Matrix shaft offers me

Adams XTD with Kurokage 80HY Flex-X 20Ti

Could use more distance from the 2nd rough of a fairway or tight spot of a bad lie.
