@  BingHogan : (19 December 2014 - 11:32 AM) Hang in there rfdgen -- I'm not sure if 15* is worse than constant monsoons :yes:
@  rfdegen : (19 December 2014 - 09:45 AM) 15* here this morning. But our indoor range is open and we're able to swing a club again.
@  J13 : (18 December 2014 - 09:58 AM) I play a variety of shafts but the Rome 988 is the best hybrid shaft on the planet
@  Quantum : (16 December 2014 - 11:02 AM) Can you compare 904hb vs DI 95 vs veylix 988?
@  HossOnMoss : (15 December 2014 - 06:56 PM) Did I forget to tell you about these? http://bombsquadgolf...214/#entry71313
@  ROBOPTI : (15 December 2014 - 09:49 AM) PINK RECOILS ?? .... where ?? ... I love it already

@  SouthShoreRob : (27 November 2014 - 09:01 AM) @ROBOPTI: I've got Modus Tour 120 shafts coming from Hoss. Can't wait to try them out!
@  SouthShoreRob : (27 November 2014 - 08:55 AM) Happy Thanksgiving BSG!! :kev: :chat: :cheers:
@  ROBOPTI : (25 November 2014 - 08:41 AM) Modus is the best steel shaft out there .. PERIOD :thumbsup:
@  biu997 : (24 November 2014 - 10:25 PM) nippon modus
@  HossOnMoss : (24 November 2014 - 01:37 PM) @TWshoot67: Hard to say what the outcome and results will be, but hiring Como is a good move. He is one of these guys that is really on the cutting edge of the science of the golf swing which will blend well with what Tiger was doing under Foley. Como without a doubt though will have to make some changes, but at least it's not a total "start over" process and he knows what he's doing. Looks like Tiger is going to take more control over what he does with his game rather than following a teacher's instruction to the letter.
@  HossOnMoss : (24 November 2014 - 01:35 PM) @BingHogan: That would be a good test. Without a real formal apples to apples test, my impressions are that KBS Tour V actually shares a mix of characteristics from Modus 120 and 130.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 November 2014 - 01:11 PM) So what's everyones take on Tiger's new swing coach, Chris Como. Thoughts?
@  BingHogan : (21 November 2014 - 01:47 PM) Hey Hoss, any thoughts on doing a comparison of the Nippon 120's vs the KBS Tour V Tour?
@  HossOnMoss : (20 November 2014 - 10:48 AM) What do you guys think about Golf Digest's / Dan Jenkins' recent "interview" with Tiger? http://bombsquadgolf...iew-with-tiger/

@  HossOnMoss : (11 November 2014 - 07:43 PM) And by the way guys, the new Big Bertha Alpha 815 and DBD heads exceeded my expectations today in my initial testing. Really good stuff from Rutherford Road in these new heads! :smilie_cally:
@  HossOnMoss : (11 November 2014 - 07:39 PM) @rfdegen: If it makes you feel any better, I don't take it for granted. :D
@  rfdegen : (11 November 2014 - 03:08 PM) While Hoss is checking out the Game Golf and checking in new releases, we're shoveling snow.
@  HossOnMoss : (10 November 2014 - 10:11 PM) The new Big Bertha 815 heads look killer! New Titleist 915 drivers are on the way as well. I foresee a shootout on Trackman in the few days!!!

@  HossOnMoss : (20 October 2014 - 01:46 PM) @Quantum: Rome 988 is actually a little smoother feeling and higher launch than DI-95 hybrid without feeling "loose" or being spinny. Rome 888 is going to launch lower and spin less than Speeder 757.

I have become very accustomed to the ball flight of Flighted Rifle 6.5s. With many new irons offering the KBS Tour stock or with little or no upcharge, I would try them out if anyone can tell me what to expect. Flight? Feel? Control? Distance?

Thanks

Depending on which KBS shaft you use the ball flight will be generally more piercing than the flighted Rifle's. They in my opinion are much better that the flighted. The Project x which are sometimes too high for other players aren't nearly as high as the flighted version.The KBS tours are very good shafts regardless of the flex. Not as harsh as the project x, if you can call it that, but definitely a good shaft that penetrates and is accurate.

I have to disagree with this post because it definately doesn't launch like dg's. KBS launches a tad higher than the PX. I do agree that KBS is smoother in feel and not as harsh feeling like the PX.

I agree. My PX flighted launch lower and are not as smooth feeling as the KBS tours. The apex seems to be about the same for both.

I had a set of Hogan FTX with 6.5 flighted rifles. I changed to Mizuno MP 62 with KBS Tours. The KBS spec. at 7.1 you have to play these shafts a little stiffer that most other shafts. So far I would stay that they launch higher and spin more that my Hogans. They also have a more draw tendancy than my Hogans did. I will agree that they are very consistant.

I tried the KBS and found they launch higher and spun more than my PX. I also dont like the feel since the balance point is higher up resulting in a lighter swing weight. I am sure KBS are good for some, but for me they just dont work and also had a tendency to miss left more than other shafts.

I've had similar results to many of you guys, higher launch and spin than my old rifles (though it was PX, not flighted)....Still not sure about KBT, it's nice in the longer irons but sometimes I feel like I could keep the ball down better with Project X
