OFFICIAL FORUM MEMBER REVIEW - KBS $ TAPER SHAFTS


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

How's everyone doing with the shafts? I'll be posting my stage 3 this weekend.

I had a couple weeks where I wasn't too excited with the results but that was more the indian than the arrow, my coordination had to catch up to swing changes I decided needed to happen. I played 9 a week ago and felt like I had a much more controllable swing that had a real release to it. I've been struggling with feeling like the club released out in front of me, but I think I finally have an idea of what that is supposed to feel like. Getting that feeling down has really seemed to improve my accuracy. I hit some par 3 greens during that last round and the ones that I missed were either really short chips or putt-able.

Great reviews Kegger! I bet you'll start shaving strokes next season as you get more rounds under your belt with the shafts

I forget where in the review I put it but yeah I did. Distance numbers were slightly longer with the 8- PW and about the same for everything else. Unfortunately the spin numbers weren't reliable or what I would deem believable that day, and the guy working wasn't interested in trying to figure out why.

Sorry, I meant AFTER that day where the kid couldn't get the monitor working right. To see if maybe you'd get lucky with another guy instead.

I feel more confident with these irons shafts than I do with the C-taper.  I still really liked the C-taper, but I think these fit my game better.  It did take quite a few rounds to get used to them though but I finally shot my first mid 80's with them

Oh sorry no It is not easy for me to get to so I have not made it over there again yet. But it would be nice to get better numbers. I'll see if I can cut out sometime to do that.

My Stage 3 review is posted.

Great job. I appreciated your honesty. I'm surprised that you found little to no difference in these but that should make you happy that you can get the same results in future sets without spending big $ (pun intended)

Nice review, straight to the point.  Seems like, across the board, the price point is holding everyone back since there isn't that much difference.
