Been playing them since the week after the PGA show and they are the best shafts I've ever played. By far the perfect fit for my game. Plenty of spin to stop, and zero ballooning, and you can move it and way you like.

I'm a huge fan or them to say the least

What shafts were you playing prior?

I've been using these for about a month - month and a half.  I have bounced around with iron shafts for the last 7 months and finally settled on something that I will be using for a bit.

I had always been a steel shaft player, used Nippon Modus 3 in 120s for a few years then went to Callaway last December and was fit for a lighter weight steelfiber to help get my spin numbers and launch numbers up.

Since the trip I've started taking lessons regularly and worked on my swing.  I was starting to miss the heavier weight so I got a demo of one of the $ tapers to try out and ended up putting them in 5 - pw in my irons.

They feel smooth and launch great. I don't really know if spin is up or down with these as I haven't been on a monitor since I made the switch but they seem to flight really well and loading them isn't as difficult as I had expected.  

I'm nervous moving forward with these as they may cause some joint pain like all steel seems to for me at some point, but until then, these will stay in play.

The step pattern seems longer then the kbs tour which probably contributes to the launch and flight characteristics.

The price tag was a little to digest, but I think these are going to be a great fit for a bit.

Not sure, just that KBS Tour $ Taper label is distinct and noticeable.  Tour 105 has a similar label, but given they are much lighter, unlikely anyone on tour would play them.  I had C-Tapers for a short while, didn't like the feel, also had KBS Tour V-110 S for a bit, same dislike.   Tip didn't offer much feed back.  I find it interesting that the head KBS designer is also the one that made my PX shafts that I have played since 06.

I know KBS lost their main club maker distributor but it's strange to see a high end steel shaft that isn't being promoted that much.

Seems some people are more fascinated by the 'sticker' than the shaft itself.  Maybe they think the '$-sticker' helps justify the ridiculously high cost of these KBS $-Taper Shafts... :taunt:

I played 7 holes with them today. Wow! Signature KBS Feel but less spin and stronger ball flight vs my previous KBS Tour 120.

Ive played C Taper as well in the past and definitely a livelier tip with a nice feel and kick but very stable!!!

Explosive combo with my 545 long irons and just solid feel with my mid and short irons in the 745 heads

I also have them in all three wedges. Much livelier than than DG in the prior

Black finish looks amazing by the way! I prefer the labels being on the underside not seen. Love that $ symbol. So cool

Those look awesome mtex! Do you feel like you picked up a few yards due to the lower spin? Did you have any issues with stopping the ball on the greens?

I do feel like I picked up a few yards. I didn't notice too much spin loss so I would rather have the extra carry distance

These are going into my 545/745 Combo set!! Can't wait and gonna look sweet in black

Am I seeing correctly?  I was lead to believe labels for KBS Tour $-Taper are permanently attached from KBS. :beach:

black ones don't have it yet only chrome. ps. I'm sure you could get the permanent sticker off, scrape it but it does looks kinda cool

There is no permanent sticker on any of the $-Tapers, chrome or black. Originally they went with a cured 360 label for both chrome and black, but they were having issues with it, and went back to the traditional labels (as pictured above).

I didn't know this. I got mine from ping about 3 weeks ago and they were cured 360 labels. Might have to call them if I run into issues

Ping offers these as an option? Was their an upcharge?

I played 7 holes with them today. Wow! Signature KBS Feel but less spin and stronger ball flight vs my previous KBS Tour 120.

Ive played C Taper as well in the past and definitely a livelier tip with a nice feel and kick but very stable!!!

Explosive combo with my 545 long irons and just solid feel with my mid and short irons in the 745 heads

I also have them in all three wedges. Much livelier than than DG in the prior

Black finish looks amazing by the way! I prefer the labels being on the underside not seen. Love that $ symbol. So cool

So are these perma gamers?
