I am not familiar with the KBS line having used TT DG for 30 years.  My question is are the step patterns identical for KBS Tour taper tip for regular. stiff and x-stiff.  (tip to 1st step)?  I had a stiff #5 taper tip shaft and a regular #5 taper tip shaft and the step pattern was identical.  Is the only difference between flexes the weight of the stiffer flex?  Is that how KBS sorts their flexes (same step pattern sorted by weight)?

Thank you.

I have the Tour X uncut. I can measure tip to first step if you would like me to.
I felt really good about that shot....
Until I hit it.

3iron is 9inches. All others step down .5inches to the 9/pw at 6inches. Hope this helps. The shafts are the tour X flex.

Am I correct in that the step pattern is identical in regular, stiff and X flexes and they engineer the stiffness by increasing the weights only?

I think the rep told me a while back that the info is on the grip end of the club and there is no other way of knowing.
