Not afraid to play my hybrids off the tee or from sketchy lies, I am sometimes afraid of turning them left, which is not the shape I normally play.

Hello, I'm William from Maryland. I have experience with changing shafts and grips, as well as total club assembly.

My current hybrids are Taylormade SLDR 3H 19 degree with stock Fujikura 72 gram shaft S flex.

Callaway Steelhead 4H 22 degree with stock Ozik Program 65 gram S flex.

I have not been custom fit for either of my hybrids.

My strength with my hybrids is my consistency with ball striking.

My weakness is my distance control and accuracy.

I am far more accurate with my SLDR hybrid, but my distance varies between the two by as much as 30 yards.

I would love to be chosen to test these KBS TOUR HYBRID SHAFTS.

Hoping they would help me with better distance control.

Dave, Ontario

'16 M1 3 set to 20*, Matrix Altus Tour X

Not fitted for hybrid ( but for all else)

Strength- hit high and spinning 230 with baby fade consistent with smooth swing

Weakness - wind eats up the high spinning shot. If need to step on it for more distance, balloons and lose control

Driver: M1 10.5 Rogue 125 60X

Fairway: BBA 16 Rogue 70X

Hybrid: M1 3 Altus Tour X

Irons: 4-PW 716CB TI X100

Wedges: SM6 52, 56, 60 TI X100/S400

Putter: Newport 2.5

 Jim ;  from Idaho 

- Your current hybrid and shaft combo, with lofts:  Ping Hybrids 18 and 21 degrees with stiff Accra HF 370 tip stiff

- Hybrid/shaft custom fit? Yes , by Cool Clubs in Arizona 

- Strengths/weakness of your hybrid game : My strengths are I can hit draws with the  both  Hybrids when needed, the weakness is that I could use a little more height to land softer . 


I play KBS Tour in my irons and love the shafts .

I play three hybrids:  Taylormade M1  19* with a Matrix Ozik Altus shaft stiff  

Taylormade Rocketballs stage 2 23* with Matrix Qzik Altus Shaft stiff

Callaway Apex hybrid 26* stock shaft, may put the 5 iron back into play.


I like that I can hit the ball hi and straight into greens and get them to hold.  I tend to miss the 3 and 5 hybrids with a draw when I miss.  I can hit a controlled fade and straight at will the draw sometimes hooks.

Driver: Titleist TSR 3 10* Accra Tour Z TZ6 55 M3 pure 

Fairways: Titleist TSI 16.5* Accra FX 2.0-100F M3 pure

Hybrid: Titleist TSI 4 & 5 Hybrids Accra FX 2.0-100H60 M3 pure  

Irons:  PXG Gen 3 0311 P 6-P  Fujikura Pro 75 pure

Wedges: Cleveland CBX  50*, Taylormade MG 3 Tiger grind 56 bent to 54* & Renegar RxF  58*

Chipper: Cleveland Smart Sole C 46*  Great for just off the greens in the rough 

Putter: Positive Putter's custom P2 (think Edel putter meets Heavy Putter)

Ball: Pro V1, Left Dot if available: Testing the Srixon Z-Star divide ball and 2023 Pro V1                               

All clubs have Winn Dri-Tac Wraps oversized

Jason / British Columbia


SLDR 3hy 19' stock speeder 72g s


Not custom fit.


Strength can hit it high or low, nice fairway finder on tight par 4's


Good compromise between the longer 3w & long iron fits the distance gap

Steve, Michigan. 


- Adams Boxer A3 Grafalloy ProLaunch Red HY stiff
- No
- Strengths: Accuracy, Weakness: Distance at times


I have tried many different graphite shafts.  Usually use a stiff shaft.  Handicap about 15.  Love my 3 and 4 adams hybrid.  I can do club repair, adjust lie/pitch cut shafts, replace grips.  Have the equipment to pull shafts and replace if necessary.
