PostSubject: KBS C Taper shaft Asian & US spec   Mon Apr 15, 2013 5:02 pm

Hey everyone,

The reason why I posted this topic is because I wanted to know if there is any difference between both spec's?

TaylorMade Rocketbladez iron c taper KBS shaft for Asian market has a "yellow colored cap on the grip" and US spec?

I mean is there a difference between both?
Os is this just a marketing ploy?

Has anyone tried both?

are you asking about Rocketbladez Asian vs US spec? or C Taper Asian vs US spec?

Rocketbladez:
- Asian spec: C Taper 90, Made for TM, not available commercially (afaik)
- US spec: stock rocketfuel steel or whatever they call it

KBS C Taper
- only 1 spec, whatever you see on the KBS website, i believe its a 120g version

hope it helps!

Thanks for your input.

Sorry for the confusion. My questioned is about KBS 90 C taper steel shaft.

Is there a difference between US and Asian spec?

The original C Taper from KBS plays from 110 to 130gm in 5 different flexes. This is the one we call the US spec one.

This year with the rocketbladez irons, Taylormade actually have 2 custom C Tapers for the Japan and Asian markets. These are are presently not available for purchase unless you buy the rocketbladez irons. The Japanese version is a lighter 90gm version and the Asian one is a 95gm version. I suppose the average Japanese golfer prefers a lighter shaft.

I played both shafts, albeit in different heads. They both perform exceptionally and provide a stable feel on impact. Given the choice I will prefer the 90gm version because it was just so easy to use.

Compared to the US spec ed one, which I tried in S+, you will need to really swing. A very stable and good shaft also.

Hope this helps.

the C Taper 90 is only available in the Rocketbladez, as it is Made for TM, and NOT available commercially, so you couldn't buy it without buying the Rocketbladez....

no worries! not sure tbh, i think its about SGD900+ at FESC, any other bros can confirm?

the global spec version is being sold in Golf Direct for SGD829, so i think the Asian spec should be pricier...
