@  J13 : (31 August 2014 - 06:22 AM) Site looks great Robo keep up the good work brotha!!! Love the GREENIES
@  TWshoot67 : (30 August 2014 - 09:27 PM) Congrats Robo on the site and the shafts. Are you having Veylix design for your shaft co.?
@  ROBOPTI : (30 August 2014 - 10:36 AM) XPHLEXXX.COM IS LIVE !!! ... BSG HYPERLINKS ON PAGE :)
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 10:20 PM) A zinger is probably right. He's the only one on the GC that knows what he's talking about.
@  TJR : (28 August 2014 - 04:14 PM) Azinger said he could fix Tiger in 10 minutes...
@  youngwaldo : (28 August 2014 - 09:40 AM) Butch is slowing down so taking Tiger will not happen.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:16 AM) I've heard the Grant Waite rumors as well, but that would be so similar to how Foley teaches. That's not to say that Grant couldn't teach him better even with a similar model or style.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:15 AM) Butch already said no and Tiger isn't going to take the left overs. I could see Claude III as an outside possibility otherwise, but I doubt it because of that.
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 08:57 AM) Gotta be one of the Harmon's. Or all of them. It's not the coach...
@  J13 : (28 August 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm taking myself out of consideration to be tigers next coach lol
@  ballen : (28 August 2014 - 04:56 AM) I hear Grant Waite will be Tigers next.......
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) RIP Tours - unbelievably good!
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:37 PM) Tiger maybe running out of options. Maybe Leadbetter :rolleyes:
@  HossOnMoss : (27 August 2014 - 09:28 AM) Tiger holds interviews for the position. Breed walks up and says, "Come on, Tiger! LET'S DO THIS!!!!" Tiger and I are thinking the same thing....BRUTAL. Haha
@  TWshoot67 : (26 August 2014 - 07:54 PM) Heck Tiger doesn't need to be with Michael Breed he's already a weekly discussion about the golf swing even when he's not playing on the Golf Channel....
@  Golferrob22 : (26 August 2014 - 06:36 PM) I'd put some money on Bob May! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
@  TJR : (26 August 2014 - 06:26 PM) How about Michael Breed? Tiger could be featured on a weekly segment of "The Golf Fix"
@  HossOnMoss : (26 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) I figured it was coming. Who's up next for the position? My money is on Chuck Cook.
@  BingHogan : (25 August 2014 - 02:21 PM) Still would like Tiger to get to at LEAST 18 Majors! That will tick off Chamblee.
@  TWshoot67 : (25 August 2014 - 01:55 PM) Tiger and Foley are done. The split has been announced by both sides1
@  lamont6266 : (23 August 2014 - 07:33 PM) Loved the pix and links to the new Bridgestone J15 line up that were posted!

@  TWshoot67 : (10 August 2014 - 03:23 PM) to = two
@  TWshoot67 : (10 August 2014 - 03:23 PM) J - like both of your last to SHOUTS, I say Let's Go Rickie!

@  J13 : (10 August 2014 - 02:52 PM) Oh this is shaping up to be an EPIC sunday at the PGA Champ. !!!!!
@  MWP : (08 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) @TW Since Fowler put work into his swing with Butch and cut his hair my opinion on him has completely changed, I'd like to see him squeak this one out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:08 PM) Although Steve Striker winning would be pretty cool too...
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:07 PM) Is anyone else pulling for Rickie Fowler this weekend?
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 05:13 PM) He should be smarter than that TW. That's my point. If he's hurt. Quit
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:11 PM) he's probably going to gut it out hurt himself some more just so he don't have to listen to media and naysayers who say he's faking his injuries
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:10 PM) he's already posted an 81 @ The Open few years back.
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 02:38 PM) Pushed putt. Pulled back. Time to WD. No way will he post 80
@  rfdegen : (08 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) Not contrary, from someone with a bad back, just amazed he's playing this week. Un-freakin-believable.
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:08 PM) It's all what have you done lately in todays world. Sorry I just don't give up on Tiger so easy. I'm a fanboy! lol
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:07 PM) I love how people are so contrary, less then 10 months ago Tiger had 5 wins and was #1 WGR. Now it's like he should just toss it in an quit his career is over, LOL
@  Qwagmire : (07 August 2014 - 10:47 AM) any guesses when the spasms happen? I got front nine Friday
@  KyCutter : (07 August 2014 - 08:27 AM) I suspect the "spasms" are creeping back into the picture.
@  HossOnMoss : (06 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) He did say it was spasms...real or not. Anyone that didn't think he would tee it up this week is nuts. There's no way he was missing the PGA once he made his statement sunday.
@  KyCutter : (06 August 2014 - 04:06 PM) Tired indeed ROBO…miraculous recovery tho'
@  ROBOPTI : (06 August 2014 - 02:43 PM) Really ??? ... Just a tired show
@  rfdegen : (06 August 2014 - 11:50 AM) Tiger on the range at Valhalla! Unbelievable!
@  HossOnMoss : (05 August 2014 - 09:31 PM) Bing, got tied up all day but I'll catch up with you tomorrow!
@  BingHogan : (05 August 2014 - 08:46 PM) Hoss did,you forget something? Ha ha !

@  KyCutter : (05 August 2014 - 01:44 PM) Pumped to go watch my friend JB Thursday!!
@  BingHogan : (04 August 2014 - 09:45 PM) SOFTLIGHT!, sound like THE perfect shaft for the Alpina guys who want a bit less spin.
@  ROBOPTI : (04 August 2014 - 10:05 AM) VEYLIX SOFTLIGHT now available here at BSG !!!!

@  andy1818 : (01 August 2014 - 12:27 PM) Clubs used to be for sale on here. Where is that at?
@  TWshoot67 : (01 August 2014 - 12:27 PM) Well don't know about Hummingbirds speaking English, but all I was trying to infer was that everytime the media and others toss Tiger aside he does something no one else does in golf. It's amazing how everyone already forgot the guy won 5 times last year. He's been injured all year. I could care less if he plays the Ryder Cup
@  BingHogan : (01 August 2014 - 12:05 PM) Read where some MIT grad had the idea of a 3ft cup. Yeah, that should really work. :lol2:
@  BingHogan : (01 August 2014 - 12:01 PM) So, when Tiger wins the 15th, that should bring golf back from the doldrums!
@  ROBOPTI : (01 August 2014 - 10:05 AM) ... and if humingbirds start speaking English .... yada yada yada ... That is EXACTLY what I saying. It's time to treat Tiger like everyone else .. He has earned that. That "aura" .. that "mystique" INSIDE the ropes - not outside - IS OVER. I think that's why this topic gets so heated. WE - the peeps are still drinking the Koolaide - and that's cool ... TRUST ME!!!! .. Inside the ropes ... They quit drinking that a longtime ago. Do we want to win - or have another episode of "X Factor" - cuz he doesn't concern Europe - AT ALL
@  TWshoot67 : (01 August 2014 - 09:44 AM) So for arguements sake Tiger finds his game wins 2 of last 3 events you still say he don't deserve to play on RC, don't count Tiger out yet!
@  ROBOPTI : (01 August 2014 - 07:43 AM) Too bad he probably will ... even though he doesn't deserve it ... glass half full though - be fun to watch
@  BingHogan : (31 July 2014 - 11:36 PM) T. Watson, best be pickin Tiger for the Ryder or nobody's watching...
@  BingHogan : (31 July 2014 - 11:34 PM) Bettinardi Wedges!? What's next, Bettinardi irons!? Let's hope so!!!

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
