These are going to go into a set of CG16 irons I believe.

I'm wondering if TT has to respond to KBS
I'd be amazed if TT doesn't have the lions share of steel shafts sales

I believe these are to replace the Tour Concepts and are flighted shafts. I think Darren Clarke replaced his KBS's with the Monaco's this past summer.

According to True Temper, not really. However I agree that it might replace them in the lineup. This was a design they came up with once they started working with the DG Spinners. You can hear more about it in the Radio Show we just did with them last week. Clarke and a handful of other guys have been playing them for a while now and raving about the feedback.

Any idea of the cost? I know the TC's were very expensive.

They said on the radio show, that they would determine that shortly before release. It is still being tested right now.

They have steps Bonk. Just less pronounced it appears, or the color makes it appear that way.

I think the 1st post has them more clear. They are definitely a light copper color. Gorgeous.

I hope True Temper releases these in this color. Not sure if they will, or if they are just for the prototypes, but I hope its this color. You can hear more about these in our True Temper Radio Show on the home page. The show on the Spinner Shafts also includes talk of these.

Agreed! We will find out today if they play as awesome as they look. They do have some Coppery Goodness to them though.

Couldn't have picked a better matching head to put in them, imo.

All I can say is, Im in love! Talk about the best feeling steel shaft I have ever used! You dont often feel loading and unloading with steel like I did with these. Incredible shaft that I am enjoying a lot. I put it head to head today with the S300s (both in CG16 irons) and definitely preferred the feel of these over the S300s (that I really like as well). Something special with these, I cannot wait to bring them to the course.

think we'll have some of these to demo at the outing? Id love to try some - and would they be compatible with the burner 2.0's?
