Tour 90 is a bit stiffer than 850 also most of the NSPro shaft usually give you a higher trajectory. Depending on what you want...

I love the KBS Tour 90. Been using it for about a year.

There is a smooth feeling when u hit the ball with this shaft. But that is together with my Mizzy MP58 clubheads. IMO, its exactly the opposite of a PX shaft. PX shaft , to me, is harsh and hard. Some like it, but not me.

Unlike the NS Pro, which i feel, balloons the balls up, the tour90 offers a more mid penetrating trajectory ball flight.

I 2nd the motion.

KBS Tour 90 is stiffer. They are preferred by Single Handicappers who have a fast swing speed

However, you can "Mixed" both shaft just like PING has been doing on their iron set

AWT....Ascending Weight Technology.

Meaning you used a Lighter weight shaft for your Long Irons
and Heavier shaft weight for your short irons.

for example, 4 iron to 7 iron....NS Pro 850, and 8iron to Pw ...KBS Tour 90

Lighter shaft will give you Distance and Heavier shaft will give you Control & Accuracy.

You will still need a good swing to get all the benefits of the shaft. If you ask me between the KBS 90 and the NSPRO, i think I will prefer the NSPRO cos it will come with the irons you buy of the shelf.

THe KBS tour 90 is not really that demanding. Comparing the two shafts, I dont really see the difference.

Ask me, ask me, I own both.
KBS is better because I'm selling it!
http://www.golfrepublic.org/t16842-wts-kbs-tour90-r-3-pw?highlight=kbs+tour90

KBS doesn't twist,"vibrate" or balloon like 850.
In short KBS is much stable.

You may ask so good why are you selling?
I have down graded to Tour AD "A Kua" Flex

If it does, it's e swing.

850 have me 5m more than 950.

My ball flight is penetrating on e 850

I'm in the midst of changing shaft too!

am considering the Project X 5.5 flighted.

NS pro Shafts feels too light to me.

I prefer a firmer feel that is stablised with a heavier shaft.


My previous shaft was a uniflex, 118g. The NS Pro 950H i am using now is only 98g.

IMO, the feel is somewhat similar, but the thing affecting the most is the weight, 20g can make a whole lot more difference to feel than the flex.


As mentioned it all depends on what you want. You gotta demo first to know =)

How do you determine that PX 5.5 flighted is the right shaft for you?
