My Driver Saga - Don't Sleep On This Shaft

The KBS shaft isn't on a lot of people's radar;  I just don't think KBS promotes it enough.  I have the shaft in my driver and I agree with you on it being a great shaft.

I wasn't familiar with it, but like I said, it was very impressive.

This but also that it's $350 and I haven't seen too many deals as far as upcharge costs with many manufacturers.

You can find it for under $200 easily. I got mine for $91 on eBay since it was cut down fairly short but to the length I needed. .

Dang and I just got a Tensei pro orange secondhand although I am still testing it out. When I go for another fitting, whenever that is, this will be on my list as I love the iron shafts.

I’ve yet to see it “in the wild”.... I don’t know much about it.

Check out the Hzrdus Smoke Black or Yellow if you get a chance. Cally Pre has them for as low as $70

Thought I would give everyone a quick update. Picked-up my new Ping 425LST last week. First impression is that I made the right choice. I was able to play 18 holes and the results were eye opening. I hit 11 out of 14 fairways and my misses were 5-10 feet offline, not "other fairway" misses. I had swings that felt horrible and I expected to see the ball inline for the trees, but to my surprise, they held their line and wound-up in the rough, but playable. 

The result was my first sub-80 round in two years and I attribute it to more fairways hit and always having a playable ball of the tee.  I have another 18 scheduled for this weekend and I hope to see the same results.
