I have currently been playing KBS Tour X stiff shafts in my AP2s as well as my vokey wedges.  Are the X shafts  in the wedges a good choice or should I be at Stiff? I'm open for suggestions / benefits of keeping or changing.

Handicap is 2.

Most tour players who us xstiff shafts use stiff in their wedges for a lil better feel. Personally I rarely rip at a wedge so stiff is perfect in my wedges.  If you use x100 try s400 in an old wedge or one of your gamers to see if you like it.

a 2??? wow....any hopes of Q school? if you are a 2, not sure it matters ;)

three answer to that is how do you feel? are you happy with how your wedges are working for you now?  i went from standard wedge shafts to x100 shafts and i have been happy with the change. i closed a yardage gap between my pitch and gap wedge. so i think the real thing is if your happy with your current wedge game i would keep the shafts you have in it.

I have the KBS Tour X in my clubs as well. Had them in my Vokey TVD's last year.  Just got mu new wedges in and ordered them with DG S200's.  Really like the softer feel.

definitely stiff you're swing speed is alot slower with the wedges i would get something really spinny with my wedges dg spinner spins alot kbs are alright just get stiff good luck



I personally like to go to a weaker shaft in the wedges since I'm not putting a full swing on it and for better feel.

X100 in my irons and S400 in my wedges.

I also have the same shaft selection. Tour issue X100 in my 172 MB's and DG S400 in my TVD 52*,56*,60*. Generally you don't take more than a 3/4 swing with wedges. The little heavier shaft helps with the feel around the green. How often do you stand over a wedge and say that you need to rip it? 


I was thinking about this last year also here is why and what I did. I hit the ball very high and have a hard time flighting my wedges and keeping the spin down. I switched to Tour Issue X100's and have never been happier. I am able to control the flight and spin so much better. So if you have flight and spin issues then I would switch if not stick with what you have.
