KBS launches new lightweight shafts

KBS has launched two new lightweight shafts to add to its growing list of options created by renowned designer Kim Braly.

The KBS S-Taper Lite, which provides the same superior feel as the S-Taper Tour in terms of performance, now comes in a lightweight package for accomplished players, while the Max Graphite is designed for higher handicappers seeking a lighter shaft to maximise iron performance and make it easier to produce a higher trajectory.

Designed for the better player looking for a lightweight performance shaft that will launch higher and produce more spin than its original, the latest S-Tapermodel also offers feel and workability along with a tighter shot dispersion.

“We’re very excited to be launching two new lighter shafts that offer a range of benefits for players of varying abilities,” said Kim Braly, R&D and Tour Operations Director. “The number of players choosing to play KBS on Tour speak volumes and the number of different shafts we have benefits players of all abilities.”

The S-Taper LITE is available in taper tip in 95g R, 100g S and 105g X weights and flexes, plus parallel tip at 110g and blank 43.5” combo flex.

“We had a lot of positive feedback about how the S-Taper Tourperformed since its launch last year and we’re constantly looking of ways to adapt and improve our shafts and a lighter version was the obvious option,” added Braly.

Featuring the same EI curve of the Max Steelshaft, each Max graphite shaft is custom fit with the player’s swing speed matched to the weight of the club. It’s available from March in parallel tip in 45g, 55g, 65g, 75g and 85g weights.

“The MAX Graphiteshaft will have a major impact in all areas of the game for higher handicappers looking for a consistent performance on every shot,” said Braly.

KBS now offers 24 different shafts from hybrid right through the bag, including limited edition custom versions. For more details, visit
