Hi guys I'm thinking of getting custom shafts for my wedges. I'd like more control n spin

Any idea which of the above 2 is better? In particular, any1 has experience with kbs tour x flex on their wedges?

Many many thanks

iLuke i have several wedges fitted with FST Hi-Rev, KBS Hi-Rev and the DG-spinner.

you can test them if you wish but you have been warned of BS itchy syndrome by Asahi in another thread.

so far most folks found the FST Hi-Res, unrated in US forums, to be the best.

Thanks Eric. Sounds like a plan.

Let me pick your brain. In your opinion, is the FST Hi Rev & KBS Hi Rev better for wedges than the KBS Tour X Flex?

Heard from a review Boss eric did (or was it JonTK?), DG Spinner, offers more spin but somehow lower trajectory while the Hi-rev offers a higher trajectory

FST Hi Rev is the cheaper cousin of KBS Hi Rev

FST is stepless. KBS is stepped.

Using the FST Hi-Rev in my SM4s now.

trajectory-wise, the DG Spinners go higher.

Spin-wise, I would think your wedge grooves and brand willl make more diff than the shaft as I did not notice any discernable difference in spin.

Go for the FST. Cheaper, not too far off from a std DG feel and no loss in distance or degraded change of feel from std 'wedge flex' shafts.
