HOW TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT DRIVER SHAFT – KBS 70g Tour X-flex vs 40g A-flex

The world of driver shafts can be a very confusing place.

There are so many different weights, flexes, kickpoints, models and manufacturers to choose from that it is hard to know where to begin.

In this video David Cunninghame (@D_Cunninghame)will try and help clear things up for you as he puts KBS’ TD Graphite Wood shaft to the test.

• KBS launches first ever driver shaft

For this test he chose KBS’s first driver/fairway wood option thanks to the sheer wealth of options available and the excellent mid-launch / low-spin performance it delivers.
