Currently on sale for $9.98. That is a heck of a deal for a shaft that retails in the mid $20's. Currently have regular and stiff flex available. FYI, they are .370 tip.

I almost jumped at the CTapers, but as noted they are all .370 shafts. Have Nippons as well, also .370s.

Can You explain what the .370 means/affects? I want these for an old pair of 710AP2 I have sitting around.

Titleist irons are .355 "taper tip", so you need to get shafts that are .355 diameter. Some clubs are .370 "parallel tip" and use larger diameter shafts. Hope this helps!

.370 is the tip/Hosel size.  Irons come in .355 and .370.

Your 710 ap2s have .355 hosels.

It’s the shaft diameter inside the hosel. Your ap2s are 355 taper tip, so the 370s are no good for you unless ream (drill) them out to fit.
Usually not recommended.

RBG has been putting a lot of .370 tip shafts on sale for ridiculous prices. I noticed they got Nippon's for dirt cheap as well too. But yea, that price for SteelFiber is unbeatable.

FYI, there is only one Steelfiber i95 available (which also means it is $14.99).  Hopefully that's only because some fellow WRXers already cleaned them out.  Either way, don't go buying a new set of sticks/heads to put those in...

Diamond tour also has short sets of dynamic gold pro shafts with .355 tip. I just built a set for a friend with these shafts.

Most .355 heads can be reamed to .370 in about 30 seconds using a hand held reamer.

Regarding .370" shafts, most are "unitized" trim to fit, which means they are sold in long raw lengths and then the builder tips them and butt cuts to length during install.  This results in a descending weight progression (long iron shafts are heavier than short iron shafts).  Exceptions to this are PX shafts and at least some (if not all) Nippons, which are constant weight .370 shafts.

.355 shafts are usually (almost always these days) constant weight shafts; long iron shafts are the same weight as short iron shafts.  This is done through material manipulation during the shaft manufacturing process.  Constant weight shafts like these are typically stiffer than .370 versions.  Dynamic Gold and KBS Tour are both good examples; the taper tip constant weight version of these shafts are a good bit stiffer than the .370 unitized version.  This is not a problem per say, unless you play the .355 version and purchase the .370's and expect them to play and feel exactly the same though.  

The devil's in the details.

In my experience KBS will send you labels for free if you ask them

I second this, but... a few years ago, they used to have a link on their website to order new shaft bands directly (for free). Last winter, I wanted to freshen up my wedges- pull the heads, repaint, regrip, replace the ferrules & bands, etc. I went to KBS's website to order more 610 bands, and the link was no longer there. I had a heck of a time trying to contact anyone to find out if I were still able to obtain replacement shaft bands. It took a lot of email tag and being passed around before I finally found someone who was able to help.

Does anyone have a more direct route/ contact to track down some new bands? I'd think every manufacturer would want fresh shaft bands on every one of their shafts being played, just for the exposure, but the gist I got from the KBS rep was that people were taking advantage of the service and ordering as many replacements as possible to sell on eBay... which unfortunately IS a thing:
