Leading golf shaft brand KBS has completed the full set of club shafts with the addition of the new TD Graphite wood shaft to its Tour-acclaimed irons, wedges, hybrids and putter shafts.
The most sought-after shaft supplier in aftermarket fittings, KBS has responded to strong demand from Tour players and amateur golfers from around the world to launch its first entry into the driver/fairway wood market by renowned designer Kim Braly.
The KBS TD Graphite wood shaft has been designed as a mid-launch / low-spin performance Graphite golf shaft that optimizes the maximum performance and efficiency of spin and launch angles at various 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.
“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,” he added.
Seen as the most innovative golf shaft company - the choice for many of the world’s top-50 golfers – KBS is coming off its strongest ever season 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.
KBS now offers 25 different shafts through the bag with the KBS TD Graphite wood shaft offering the same feel, efficiency and playability as its wide-ranging iron options such as the popular C-Taper; wedge shafts like the 610 Tour version and the Tour Graphite hybrid Prototype shaft, plus the popular CT Tour putter shaft, all designed to fit the broadest range of golfers - from global stars to accomplished amateurs and even juniors.
The KBS TD Graphite wood shaft will be available in 40-80g weights from January 2020 at an MSRP price of £260 (approx.) / $325. More details of all KBS golf shafts can be found at www.kbsgolfshafts.com.
