Do a search in "The Wrx Shop" Forum. You'll find a lot of reviews and opinions.

I've played X-100, S-300, Project X 6.5, 6.0, and 5.5, Steelfiber 110. I'm now playing the KBS Tour and find that the shaft is very stable and has great feel. I'd recommend that you try a set.

I would tell you to try them in a heartbeat. I played the DG S300's for years, and just recently went to a KBS Tour 90 stiff shaft, and I love them.

It's something you need to get used to as it's counterbalanced.  I prefer DGS300 or PX much more but doesn't mean it's a bad shaft

How are you handling the difference in weight from DGS300?

I liked the feel but found them to feel a little light, perhaps it was the weight distribution.

You definitely need to add some headweight to the club when you put in the KBS tour.  Swingweight drops about two points due to the thinner walls of the shafts tips..Mine went from d2 to d0

Great shaft...high launch but low spin...I like them a lot but struggle with them in the spring and fall when there is a lot of wind where I play.

I have actually started just using them in my wedges since I hit a lot of 3/4 and 1/2 shots and they really perform for me with these shots...
