Throwback to late 2017 when KBS Golf Shafts introduced the KBS $-Taper Tour: the brand, who have been at the forefront of steel and graphite shaft technology for over ten years, wanted to offer something new to better ball-strikers regardless of clubhead speed. Longtime KBS designer and head of R&D, Kim Braly, wanted the KBS $-Taper to provide superior feel while maintaining workability for players seeking a mid-launch and low spin shaft. The KBS Tour $-Taper shares the same bend profile as the KBS TOUR with elongated step patterns for spin, intended to generate a stable performance throughout the swing.
The shaft has been adopted on all major golf tours worldwide by some of the game’s biggest names and has collected over 20 wins worldwide since its debut, including two Major Championships and a Players Championship. While its success has been at the high-speed elite level, the KBS Tour $-Taper is available in a range of weights and flexes: R-flex (110 grams), R+-flex (115) S-flex (120), S+-flex (125) and X-flex (130).
"The KBS Tour changed the performance and feel of steel golf shafts when it was unveiled almost ten years ago; the KBS Tour $-Taper will do the same for a new generation of golfers looking for the best golf shafts on the market,” said Braly. “With a stronger tip section that stays straighter on the downswing and at impact for tighter dispersion, the KBS Tour $-Taper is for the player looking for a straighter and stronger ball flight, with lower spin resulting in Tour-caliber performance and feel."
KBS Golf Shafts offers over 30 different premium shafts to fill every need, including 18+ iron and graphite shaft options.
