KBS C-Taper Lite for 714 AP2's

Drew, 

The C-Taper Lite S-flex is 2 full flexes softer in butt frequency than S-300. Even the C-Taper Lite X-flex is at least 1 full flex softer than S-300. C-Taper Lite also has a somewhat lower kick point than S-300, so it will fly higher and spin more. If you are looking for DG performance from KBS, he should try normal C-Taper.

Thanks Cameron!  Exactly the information I was looking for, which has now led me to another question. 

Do you know how the C-Taper Lite compared to the PXi 5.5?  I see on the custom shaft chart that the PXi 5.5 was a Mid/Mid but am wondering where the C-Taper Lite would chart.

I'm playing DG S300 now, but am looking for something a bit higher launching and lower weight.  The C-Taper Lite and PXi seem to be an ideal match for what I'm looking. 

Also, has the PX 95 Flighted been tested?  It could be a possibility for me as well, but I've never played a Flighted shaft before and have read mixed reviews.

Thanks TT!

Hi - I was looking for a similar setup. I went through a fitting and the Nippon NS Pro 97 Gram shaft (stiff) with D2 swing weight proved to be the best.  The combination provided a softer feel, mid launch, and lower spin rate which translated into more distance.

Hope this helps

Hey Drew, 

The C-Taper Lite is a mid/low launch and spin in the range of Modus 3 Tour 120 with a different feel. Club swingweight is closer to normal than other KBS shaft, but still a notch lighter.  The PXi  is a mid launch and spin at same weight as C-Taper Lite. Slightly softer tip than C-Taper lite yields a lower kick point, thus the more mid launch angle.  From what you are looking for, the PXi may be the better choice.  

The PX 95 Flighted has not been approved. 

Hope this helps!

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. 

 

Hi Tae,  We just got word that the KBS 90's have passed our shaft testing protocols.  They will not be on the custom matrix, but we will be able to order them as an "off menu" shaft.   We ask that you don't cancel or change an "off menu" shaft order once it has been placed.

Are the C-Tapers R+ shafts available for AP2 714 irons?

Thanks

Ryan

Thank you for the update Cathi.  Unfortunately, I placed an order last week Friday with the C-Taper Lites because I couldn't wait to get these clubs! :)  Hopefully the C-Taper Lites will work out!

Yes, as an off menu shaft

Can Golfsmith order the shafts as an "OFF MENU" shaft?

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi,  They can order "off menu" shafts, but it is a longer process due to the fact that it is not part of their standard ordering system. 

Hi Cathi:

 

I ordered my AP2 714 from the Plaza Golf in Torrance, CA last week and was told that my clubs would be ready to pick up today, Nov 8th.  My irons are equipped with Project X Pxi 5.5 shaft.  You know with these new clubs, I want to have them in my hands right away but when I tried to make an arrangement to pick them up from the store (not ship to my house because I want to test the loft and lie with my professional club fitter at the store) today, I  was told that the shaft I ordered for my AP2  is out of stock and my irons won't get shipped until 11/25th.  Is it true? I found that it's odd that Titleist would not stock enough shaft listed on the custom shop and catalog available for the custom order for the loyal Titlesit customers like me.  At least, I wish Titleist Rep who my clubfitte was talking to when he placed the order for me would have said something to him about the availablility of the shaft and delivery date.   My guy had to call Titleist to get this latest update instead of Titleist calling him to advise him of the out of stock situation.  I sold my old AP2 irons set earlier this week in anticipation of my new irons delivery and now have to borrow a set of clubs to compete in the tournament this weekend.

Sorry to trouble you.  I am a true beleiver of Titleist and had been a loyal customers of your company for over 20 years.  This experience is a little bit disappointing

Tae,

I just got my 714 AP2s today with the KBS C Taper Lite Stiff and hit with them at the range.  You're going to love them! 

Hi Cathi:

I see that the C Taper Lites have been approved for off menu orders; any further word on the Recoil shafts?  Thank you in advance.

Hi Gilbert,  We are not offering the Recoil shafts at this time.  I believe, they are only being offered as "aftermarket" shafts through their shaft retailers.

Hi Victor,  I apologize - I am not sure where the miscommunication occured, but I show that we have been backordered on the Pxi 5.5 shafts, and that they were due to arrive by 11/25.  We would have quoted all backorders when the order was placed and we also make call backs when components become backordered and orders are not going to ship in a timely manner.
 
But, I do have good news for you, the shafts did arrive early and went through inspection, so you should have your irons before the end of the week.
