Seeking help from the experts.
Looking to purchase a set of Callaway X-Forged irons and can only demo with the stock PX 6.0's. I hit them well but the launch is higher and spinning more than optimal, causing a  steeper angle of decent. Intrigued by the KBS $-Taper shafts and was wondering how they would compare to the 6.0's? Feel, Launch, Spin?
My index is 5
Solid iron player
7 iron swing speed is 80-84 with a fast tempo

Would I opt for the R+ or S?

Thanks

I'd also like to know about this shaft, where it sits in amongst the other KBS shafts for instance.

Dive into this thread.

Summary. It is a mid flight mid weight low spin shaft.

You can see if anyone in that thread has a  comparison to project x.
