Thinking about picking up one to throw in my 60* to test before throwing them in all of the wedges. How are these working out for you all so far?

As others have mentioned, they don't feel great and I might have lost a little spin around the greens (if so not much) but on half to full shots, they shine. The dreaded zip back off of the green is now gone. For that reason I have stuck with them.

What does the flight look like? I love to hit some low spinners with my 60 but it tends to balloon at times and I get some inconsistent carry distances.

I have the S+ in my 55* and 59* wedges and I love the shaft in all facets of my short game. Great spin on chips and pitches, but also able to handle the occasional full shot. If anything I noticed an increase in spin on those delicate shots around the greens. I am able to flight them high or low, depending on what shot I need to play.

I play lots of full shots with my wedges. Would they be fine in this aspect?

I hit plenty of full shots with mine as the courses I play always has a par 3 at or under 120 yards or I am at that yardage.  They hold up well and feel great to me. IMO this is a great all around wedge shaft.

Definitely less ballooning than anything else I've tried.

Can anyone shed some light on if there would be a difference between the 610’s vs. KBS tour 120?

I play Tour 120 in my irons and in my 54*. I’m assuming the difference would be minimal, but just wanted to see if anyone has tried both and has any insight?

I play the KBS FLT series in my irons and the 610's in my wedges. the 610's don't have that rip back effect on full shots but more of a 1 hop stop maybe a foot or 2 of back up. I have ripped back more pitching wedge shots than I have with my 52 or 56 full shots.

I really like the ability to flight the ball down and never worry about a balloon ball, but I don't notice any loss of spin around the green with chip or pitch shots. Like the others have stated, it is a very versatile and all around great wedge shaft.

Does everyone that plays these play them with other KBS shafts in their irons? I'm back to project x 7.0s after playing with C-tapers and im stuck on the wedges, may go back to project x 6.5 in the wedges... Or something different?? Right now I have a project x 6.5 in my 52 degree and kbs 610 in my 60 and pulled out an old 64 degree with an s300, got three different wedge shafts right now haha. honestly feel really similar and see (without a launch monitor) the same Ballflight with the 6.5 and kbs 610 (I don't hit many full swing 64 degrees) but I feel conflicted about what to play.

The 610 has a larger butt diameter compared to the tour. It also maintains its stiffness down that shaft longer. So it doesnt have the smooth feel of KBS Tour. Its feels firmer. Plays stiffer.

I just put the 610 115 R+ in my gap wedge for a test run.  Might be my favorite wedge shaft ever.  I also like the numerous weight options KBS offers.
