I hit a set of 790s with the FLT shafts and thought they were great.   I liked the feel and the fitter thought I could use a bit more spin and launch with these lower spin heads and strong lofts.

I didn't get to get flight outside but the numbers were good.  Anyone playing these shafts??? Any feedback?


How would they compare to S300 or modus 130?

I hit them Saturday with FLT.  

I found them super smooth and felt good.

How long have these been out? I have a set of 2012 Amp Forged irons with KBS Tour FLT shafts the came stock. Are these the same or has KBS released a new iron.

I have them in all my irons and I'm considering putting them in my wedges. They are very consistent shafts that perform exactly the way KBS describes them. Higher flight in the long irons with flatter trajectory in the short irons. I have them in the P770s 5-GW and a P770 4 iron and they perform brilliantly in all of them.

I have them and really like them. The only issue was my 4 iron...it might go too high. But overall they're great. Very smooth. Makes the long irons easy to hit. Shorter irons have a really good flight.

Is the idea of the KBS flighted not that they all fly the same height?

They're basically designed so that the long irons fly higher than the normal KBS shafts.

Ah so they are just like PX flighted then, guy in my golf shop told me they were designed to hit all your shots at the same height he must have got his wires crossed.

I have the 120S in a set of P790s that I have a couple rounds in.  Coming from PX LZ 5.5 and before that, KBS Tour standard 120s.  These feel as smooth as the LZs, but it definitely feels like it takes less effort get a nice trajectory on these. Also going back to a 120g shaft and heavier heads has really helped my tempo with the "long-mid" irons.  My set is 5-PW
