I just received my new CF16's this week. Mine have the KBS Tour FLT shafts. Look forward to getting them out to hit tomorrow. Have a couple of wedges coming too (MD3 54 and PM grind 58); with the FLT shaft as well.
Had mine out to the range for the first time yesterday. Love the feel and flight; and the FLT shafts seem to be a really good match for the head and my swing. All in all very pleased.
I did notice there is something rattling up and down inside the shaft of the 5 iron. Not sure what that might be. The FLT's are .355 tipped shafts I know (or am pretty sure anyway), but not sure whether that could be a factor. Maybe just a chunk of leftover dried epoxy? We're out in the boonies here, so my retailer isn't close by to look at it. I'll likely get the pro shop at the golf course here pull the grip to see what's causing it
Doesn't take away from how happy I am with the irons though!
Had the grip pulled on the weekend and it was a chunk of dried epoxy that had come loose. Had to put a new grip on unfortunately. Got the 5 iron back and played a round today. Wouldn't you know it, half way through the round; rattle, rattle, rattle. Had the grip cut off at the pro shop and another chunk had come loose. There must have been a pile of epoxy up inside that shaft! So, two new grips (three total) on an iron that is only two rounds old. Not ideal. Hopefully that solves it though. On the bright side, my iron game was pretty good today, and I was hiiting them pretty long (for me) and straight; so that's a plus.
If the grips were still good they could have been taken off without cutting them. Takes a little more work but doable.
Get the lofts checked. Mine were way off on 3 of them - 5-7 were very close together. You may hit them even farther if they were similar. Someone else reported the same thing.
Glad to hear they are working for you. I've have mine over a week now and haven't tried them yet! This work thing gets in the way of life...
The course here has limited equipment, so I wasn't surprised they ended up cutting it off. I was going to wait and have it done where I ordered them in Calgary, but the noise was too annoying. Good tip on the lofts/lies. I'll have those checked next time I get into the city.
I just ordered my custom fit set yesterday (4/25). Was told 4-8 weeks turnaround to get the set. As the clubs I am playing now are *cough cough* about 14 years old I am very excited to get these. They felt great hitting them off the mat with the launch monitor. I only hope the nymbers and feel corresponds to the course from how they felt indoors. Keep me/us updated. Will be interested to hear about your experience. Or if anybody else can shed some light from indoor to outdoor real world performance that would be great also.
