The QST line was updated for 2019/2020, most notably by removing the Koroyd materials in the shovel and replacing them with damping cork inserts. Combined with a tip-to-tail blend of carbon and basalt stringers, the QST 99 inspired testers with improved torsional rigidity at moderate speeds and in soft bumps. The improved longitudinal flex was also noted for providing an extra level of nimbleness all over Taos.
