I just saw this short write-up on the forthcoming putter shaft offerings from KBS:

https://www.pgatour....o-day-2019.html

Unfortunately there was little substantive info provided. Anybody have any details about the technology in these shafts, how they compare to other putter shafts, etc.? I hope the Golf WRX team at the PGA Merch Show get some pictures of these, too.

It might finally be possible to buy a black single bend putter shaft what a day. Also if I remember correctly these shafts are supposed to be stiffer and produce less flex and vibrations. Similar to the new callaway and stability shafts.

I wonder how they will compare in price to the stability shafts.

I’m guess they are going to be a lot cheaper if they are metal and no graphite.

Thanks for posting the link. I will be eager to hear any reviews others might have on these, too, especially as compared to the graphite putter shafts on the market.

Only .370...wonder how different it is than putting a C-Taper in a putter. I've done it before but sold the putter before I really gave it a shot.

So what's the scoop on these? Looks like they are stiff with a stiff tip. Similar to other recent "stable" putter shafts.

Really disappointed in the .370 tip size.  I was pretty excited for these to come around, but I'm not sure that I own any putters that will fit.  Hopefully more options coming down the line.

What putters are still .355? Byron? Older Scottys? Maybe some PINGs?

Most Scottys with a plumbers neck are 0.355 are'nt they? My Button Back Newport 2 screams for a black shaft but I think its 0.355 on that one.

Every plumbers neck Scotty I have resifted has used a .355.  Same with Byron, Bettinardi, Tyson Lamb, Ping.

Hopefully we see additional sizes coming out, because it seems as if a large chunk of the putter world has been left out on this one.  Would love to see a flare tip as well for my flow necks.

All Scotty putters that I am aware of , using a single bend shaft , use a .355"
made for / preprioritory  tip shaft. The one exception  being the Studio Design
#5 . Which used a ridiculous small and hard to find .285" tip .
Cobra King F8 10.5* / Fuji Diamond Speeder 5-SR
TEE EX10 Beta 16.5* / Fuji Platinum Speeder 5-SR
TEE EX10 19* / Fuji Platinum Speeder 6-S
TEE EX9 22* / Attas 4U 7-S.  
TEE EX9 25* / Attas 4U 7-X
I have added about 10 grams of weight to all the fwy / hybrid
shafts , using Sensicore inserts wrapped with lead tape.

Cobra Forged Tec Black / 28* 6 iron thru 49.5* GW / 4.5* gapping
Recoil 780 Es Smac wrap F3 / GW shaft internally weighted to 95 grams

King Black Wedges / 54* versatile/ Recoil 95 F3 shaft weighted to 110 grams
58* versatile / Recoil 110 F4 shaft weighted to 125 grams ( heat shrink tube )

This is not at all what I wanted to hear LOL. Looks like I'll be wrapping it in shrink wrap myself. Thanks for the info
