KBS releases first game improvement shaft

Kbs

KBS has added a new dimension to its range by introducing a shaft for mid-to-high handicap golfers for the first time.

The innovative steel golf shaft brand, which has built its reputation on precision iron shafts for tour players, has launched the KBS Max 80 that is expected to be very popular.

The Max 80 is a lightweight shaft that produces a high trajectory and spin rate for longer distance shots that the majority of golfers find difficult to hit consistently.

“In the past our philosophy has been to design stronger shafts aimed at the better player, but the Max 80 has been developed for those players with a higher handicap looking to maximise the performance of their irons on every shot,” said Kim Braly, R&D and tour operations director at KBS.

“For club makers and fitters, the KBS Max 80 is a welcome addition to the KBS range,” added Paul Steels, who represents the brand on the European Tour.

It enables them to better fit golfers that have difficulty with less confidence in their iron shots

“It’s a very useful shaft to have at their disposal, because it’s lightweight with a high launch; available in three flexes and with further custom options to suit every individual golfer’s needs. It enables them to better fit golfers that have difficulty with less confidence in their iron shots,” he added.

The KBS Max 80 weighs 102g and is available in three flex options (regular, stiff and X stiff) with a Chrome finish along with a .370 parallel tip diameter.

Other iron shafts available in the KBS range include the Tour; Tour V; Tour 90; Tour 105; S-Taper; C-Taper; C-Taper Lite; 560 & 580 Series; FLT Series; and the Tour Graphite Hybrid, plus wedge options ranging from the Hi-Rev 2.0; 610 wedge; and Tour wedge.

Custom fitting of the KBS Max 80 shaft is available now at selected dealers. For more details visit kbsgolfshafts.com.
