I just received my new AP1 712 irons with the KBS Tour S shafts in them. The shafts were +.75 inches, as I'm 6'2.. The clubs feel lighter than my old irons with TT DG S300s. I wonder if the swing weight is the D2 as it says on the website, or if it's lighter with KBS tours, as I've read that on a lot of different sites? Figured I'd ask you before I drive all the way back to the store I bought them from.
Were your old irons the same length? If they were, then the swing weight would be 2 points heavier. Those shafts will swing weight 2 points lighter then the DG S300. Your current irons will probably swing weight out to around D1.5.
They were shorter (standard length), and DG S300s. I got fitted and they said I needed longer clubs. They didn't fit me very specifically though. I had interest in the KBS, but we never compared different shafts to different ball flights. I felt the head more in transition in the other clubs. Now it seems like I'm swinging a board. It's really hard to control the wedges as well. I'm thinking of adding lead tape to them, but would rather not, as that just junks the club up.
Also I'm hitting a lot of shots off the toe. Still straight ball flight, but with a little draw. Not hitting it cleanly, but the ball is going where I'm aiming... just not as far as it should. Good forgiving clubs, but I have read about KBS shafts drooping the toe? Is this something real? Or with the lighter shafts, do you think I'm just coming over the top. I know you can't be 100% since you aren't seeing my swing, just an opinion woul be nice.
Thanks for your time.
