KBS launches New Shaft for woods

1.44pm 21st October 2019 - New Products

Leading golf shaft brand KBS is now able to offer golf shafts through the bag following the addition of the new TD Graphite wood shaft to its Tour-acclaimed irons, wedges, hybrids and putter shafts.

Responding to demand from Tour players and amateurs alike, the KBS TD Graphite wood shaft offers mid-launch/low-spin performance for a wide range of swing speeds.

By using the new KBS Category Swing Speed System to fit shafts off swing speed alone – instead of weight and flex – the KBS TD Graphite wood shaft will play lighter and stiffer than other graphite wood shafts on the market and provides ultimate performance and superior feel.

“I’ve been asked the question of when we were going to enter the wood shaft market for many years and my answer was always not until we’re 100% happy with the product and we can make an even bigger impact with a full set of shafts throughout the bag,” said Kim Braly, R&D Tour Operations Director for KBS.

“We’ve worked tirelessly with our Tour players and R&D team to perfect our first wood shaft which has all the characteristics of a KBS shaft. We’ve designed it to offer optimized spin rate and launch, which equals more power and distance on every shot with the driver and fairway woods.”

The KBS TD Graphitewood shaft will be available in 40-80g weights from January 2020 at an MSRP price of £260 (approx).

KBS has enjoyed its strongest ever season in 2019, with 45 worldwide wins across all Tours, including two Major wins coming at the US Open at Pebble Beach and the Open Championship at Royal Portrush.
