I recently purchased ap2 irons with x100 shafts. I love the ions but my ball flight is still extremely high. I'm wondering if Kbs or project x shafts would of made a difference.

With regards to the Dynamic Gold X100 shafts, this is actually our lowest lauching and spinning shaft in our steel iron shaft matrix. KBS or Project X shafts actually are designed to fly slightly higher with slightly more spin.
One suggestion only based on if you hit the ball high with a ballooning effect would be to decrease the loft (bend the club) to bring the ball flight down. An effect of doing this will bring the trajectory and spin down.

You could also try KBC C-Taper... For most people, they are noticeably lower spinning than X100. The X-Flex C-Taper will lower your spin rate compare to X100 altough they are also going to be half a flex stiffer...

I had a player test X100 and CtaperX for comparison (used ProV1 and 5 shots per club)
Here are the results:
If your ball flight is really high, I'm not sure a shaft change will fix that.
Like Ryan P stated, getting the lofts bent stronger will have the biggest influence on the overall flight.
Hope this helps!
