Not sure my question is applicable as it may not be comparing apple to apple.

If we were to compare KBS Tour 90 S (101g) and KBS Tour R (110g), can any senior here able to advice what is the difference in terms of:

1. Swing Speed - do we need a faster swing speed for KBS Tour R?

2. Feel and Smoothness - will we be able to feel vast difference between the two?

3. Fatigue - does it necessary mean using KBS Tour R (110g) will tire faster compared to Tour 90 S?

4. Weight vs Stiffness - which is more important? weight or stiffness?

Hope any bro who has tried can advice. Thanks in advance.

MT, if you feel that the weight is an issue, then go for KBS 90. But if swing weight is something that you are very particular about, having a heavier shaft might be better in achieving your swing weight. But if you are still swinging like how you were swinging the last time i played with you, then i don't think you will have any problem with either of them, it will come down to personal preference.

Maybe you would like to try the C Taper instead... Smile

Its not tough.... I used KBS 90 and KBS TOur regular and Stiff prior to the C taper, The C taper R+ plays like the KBS Tour Regular. So you should give it a try. At least i know the C Taper will be longer lasting.
