      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!

      (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.

      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.”
