@  J13 : (29 October 2014 - 05:52 PM) Hellooooooo out there. My Hoss built irons recently helped me shoot an all time low of 67 from the tips. Marcus your work is second to none my friend.
@  rfdegen : (27 October 2014 - 12:48 PM) Played my last 18 of the season on Friday. Course closes this weekend, but I'll be in Iowa pheasant hunting.
@  Armyguy13 : (20 October 2014 - 08:14 PM) Voted for Andrew --- he's currently in the lead with 65.5% to 26.5% being the next place vote getter
@  TWshoot67 : (20 October 2014 - 04:54 PM) Andrew great job and I hope you make the Guinness book of world records. You got my vote! shared and tweeted.
@  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.
@  ROBOPTI : (17 October 2014 - 03:05 PM) BSGers - Fellow member & Cally Kings of Distance member Fraketrain needs our help !!! - For a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records http://www.guinnessw...ote-now!-61189/
@  Quantum : (17 October 2014 - 05:56 AM) Can you compare veylix 988 to GD DI 95 hybrid? Also veylix 888 to Fuji speeder 757?

@  J13 : (07 October 2014 - 07:50 AM) I"m using an I25 now love it but the G30 LST is coming around January
@  BingHogan : (07 October 2014 - 12:08 AM) So, is the Ping I 25 dead!? Loved the I 20 with the K.
@  BingHogan : (05 October 2014 - 09:27 PM) Saw him hit a putter 280! Then saw him play and putted -- 280... :rolleyes:
@  youngwaldo : (05 October 2014 - 11:12 AM) Yes it is, but we can give him a break because its just for show.
@  Shambles : (05 October 2014 - 03:11 AM) Isn't that considered building a stance ?

@  Jack : (03 October 2014 - 11:09 AM) Yo BSG! What's going onnnnn!
@  rfdegen : (30 September 2014 - 09:30 AM) All I saw over and over was Euros firing at flags, USA middle of green or off. Euros draining putts left and right, UWA missing a lot with tentative strokes.
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:40 AM) Just heard on The Golf Channel -- if Phil and a few others are on in 2016 -- a new Red, White and Blue Skirt will designed for the ladies/guys!
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:37 AM) I don't know why but I am just pissed about this! If you are going to have an AMERICAN FLAG as big as a battleship on - you best be bringing' it!
@  Qwagmire : (29 September 2014 - 09:29 AM) Best line I read about the Ryder Cup: Mickelson: What has been in common with all of our Ryder Cup losses recently? Scribe: Mickelson was on the team. Phil broke the code, threw everyone under the bus
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:12 AM) AMEN QUAGS -- and who picked out their "costumes". Maybe the Golf Channel can do a complete makeover... I'm sure that's next.
@  Qwagmire : (28 September 2014 - 11:18 PM) US Squad is too spoiled to do anything but watch their stock portfolios.
@  BingHogan : (28 September 2014 - 02:11 PM) He then said: PGA's new mantra instead of "These guys are Good" should be: "these Guys Really Suck!" Thanks Professor, we all agree!

@  tmfreak : (27 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) US always wears the most horrid outfits, Saturday RC '14 was a new level of awful. cant possibly play let alone win looking like fools.

@  BingHogan : (12 September 2014 - 11:22 AM) First ball out of the box-- Back of the net! Second, straight little draw. As Kenny Perry once said: " I Kain't miss it!" Really haven't hit a driver like that in years!
@  J13 : (12 September 2014 - 09:45 AM) Bio Cell is a hidden gem. Heard Cobra is bringing the HEAT next year.

@  burniemac : (09 September 2014 - 07:42 AM) Just got a sleeve of the Titleist test balls in the mail yesterday
@  BingHogan : (08 September 2014 - 06:16 PM) Sleeves that have been handed out. Looks like more spin probably due to lower spinning drivers coming out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:56 PM) Are we talking the New Titleist sleeves that have been sent out?
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:55 PM) @BingHogan is this ball from a New Company or just a new Proto for next years possible selections?
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 10:10 PM) Testing a new ball prototype tomorrow. Sworn to not to loose it. Just hit it and see...
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 09:58 PM) Maura Passing Point with KBS V -- Sweet! Hit 200 and couldn't put em down. Great turf interaction and feel.

@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:43 PM) Decided to go through ALL my bags and start over from driver to wedges.
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) PP - large cavity. Doesn't have the new CB yet. Also the new blade. Really expensive, though. Might have to break out the new MP 69's.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 02:30 PM) Should feel buttery soft. Blade or CB?
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 09:53 AM) Hitting a Miura with KBS V later today to add to the confusion :rolleyes:

@  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

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
