Recently went thru the DNA process (87ss 18.104.22.168 and was amazed that one of the recommendations was KBS Tour X soft-stepped. Initial thought was there is no way I can hit an X shaft. So I've been hitting the PX 6.0 shaft which felt good, decent dispersion, backspin was 6800rpm. Which is a little bit high, I think.
So today at the range (outside) I tried the KBS Tour X (not soft stepped) and WOW the dispersion was laser straight. For me that is impressive. I felt like there was some loss of distance. . .how much I'm not sure. . pin was at 178 and sometimes I was just short, other times it looked to be 10-15 yards. Anyhow, probably too stiff for me, which is where the softstepping comes in. . .or the C-Taper S+ which has the same FCM as the KBS Tour X soft stepped.
Unfortunately, these options are not available at the fitting carts. . . plus I'm 1/4" over which complicates a fitting as well. Standard feels just a tad short, choking up on a 1/2" over changes the swing weight.
So. . . anybody have any recommendations? Love the look of the C-Tapers, but the only one available is a standard stiff.
Wouldn't it be great if Mizuno had the option for my local club to order a shaft in the desired configuration as a loaner. . . hint hint
Thanks in advance!
PS - planning on purchasing the MP-64's for these shafts
