KBS C-Taper Lite for 714 AP2's

Have you completed your testing and are the KBS C-Taper Lite shafts available to order in the 714 AP2's? How about the KBS C-Taper (non-Lite)?

The C Taper Lites, the PX 95, the TourV, and some of the heavier Recoils have not completed testing yet. 

The standard weight C Tapers are offered.

Hi Cathi 

I have tried to order a set of 714 AP2s from a number of your retailer web sites (Golfsmith, Edwin Watts, Etc) but they only allow you to select DG S300 shafts and no other options.

Please advise

Thanks

Large retail shops often do not allow you to customize an order unless you go into an actual store.  You can also order through your local Golf course pro shop. 

Hi Cathi 
I live in South Africa and trying to get any information and firm dates from the local agents is almost impossible, especially if you want a non-standard set of shafts. I was going to try and get a set with either KBS C-Taper Lite or NS Pro 930GH shafts whist in the USA mid November, but that now looks unlikely. I don't believe that I will have any chance of getting these from the agents in South Africa before February 2014 - so I may have to look at an alternative make. The agents here want me to buy a set with DG S300 shafts and then buy a set of my preferred shafts at 120% of the full price as a special order and have these fitted here - so much for custom fitting.

Disappointing to say the least.
Regards
Des

Des,

I don't want to interfere, but you may want to email the local store in the city you are visiting of one of the big chains directly. Dick's, Golf Galaxy, Golf Town all have local stores in cities across the U.S. They will likely be able to process a custom order for you via email.

Hi Des,  You will be able to get a set with the NS pro 950 if you are here for at least a week and the order is placed early in your stay.  It also depends on where you will be staying as our clubs ship from Carlsbad, CA.  I will also forward your email to our South African rep to contact you to see what can be done in South Africa.  You should not have to purchase a set and reshaft. 

As far as C Taper Lite shafts, they are still testing them.  Please note, if they do pass the shaft testing protocol, they will also build several swingweights light as will the NS pro 950's. 

Thanks - much appreciated

How long before it is known if the c Taper lite passes testing and could you get to D-3 with the cord grip?

 

Hi Hal,  We have just been informed that the C Taper Lite has passed inspection. It is not part of our custom matrix and will be offered as a "off menu" shaft.  Please note that that means we will order it, but we ask that you don't cancel or make any changes to the order once it has been placed.  The R flex will build about 2 swingweights lighter than standard and the S and X will build 1 swingweight lighter.  If it is a TV cord, it will also build light, but if it is a multi compound, it will add about 1 swingweight.  So depending on flex and which cord grip, we will be able to build between D0 and D3. 

Hi Cathi, it's good to hear that C Taper Lite has passed the inspection and is part of your custom matrix!  I'm not sure if you will know the answer to this question, but I was fitted for 714 AP2's with XP 95 S with stock grip.  I was really interested in the C-Taper Lites after reading some reviews.  Would you be able to tell me if XP 95 S is comparable to the C-Taper Lite S with stock grip or multi compound?  Thank you in advance!

Does anyone know if the flexes on the KBS C-Taper Lites will be true to form in regards to the general Regular, Stiff, X etc?  I'm wondering if, due to the lighter weight, the Stiff will actually be more of a Regular + or a true Stiff.  I currently play 735-CM with TT DG S300 and I am wondering how the KBS C-Taper Lite will compare.  Thanks.

Hi Tae,  The C Taper Lites will be an "off menu" shaft - (not part of the custom matrix).  It should launch lower than the XP95. 

Thanks for the info Cathi. I was wondering if the KBS Tour 90 is also off the shelf or this is part of your custom matrix? Thank you. 

Tae, 

The KBS Tour 90 won't be an option that we can order.
