KBS Tour 90 shafts? Yes or No

Recommended Posts

So in the sense of urgency, (well just because I didn't want to do a search) ..... I'm about to place an order for some irons.¬† Yeah, most of you should know me by now what irons I'm talking about.¬† LOL¬†¬†ūü§£

How many of you play KBS shafts in your irons?¬† To be specific, the KBS 90 shaft?¬† I want to get a general consensus on Yay or Nay.¬† I've only hit them once & was comparing next to the PX LZ at the time.¬† Numbers were fairly similar.¬† With edge of lower flight going to the PX LZ, I can only assume because of the slight edge in stiffness profile.¬† I dunno?¬† ūü§Ē¬†¬†

That's why I come here.  For the Spy's expert opinions.  So .... fire away!

Play KBS 90’s.  Like them a lot.  As you noted launch is a touch higher, but I find their dispersion good.

TSi2 Driver, Titleist TS2 5 Wood, Ping G410 3 Hybrid, Ping G400 4 Hybrid, Maltby TS1 5 Iron or Titleist  818 H1 5 Hybrid, Maltby TS1 6-GW, Maltby TSW 54, Maltby MS Grind 58, Maltby Moment XII Putter.

Some folks say golf messes up a nice walk.  That’s not true, golf makes a nice walk bearable.

I was previously fit into them and they worked well for me.  I prefer modus 105 a little over them but if the KBS tour 90 were available quickly, I'd go for them.  You can always switch out later on.

I think they are very good shafts, but personally I would get fit by comparing them to various different shafts.

I prefer the tour over the tour 90. If looking to go lighter shaft the tour 90 is a good option but after hitting them along with the dg105 and nipping 105 I would choose either of those first
