KBS rounds out shaft line with new C-Taper Lite lightweight shafts

Posted at 12:23 PM by Michael Chwasky | Categories: Shafts

The new C-Taper Lite shafts from KBS are designed for players looking for a light weight shaft that provides a mid-high trajectory and more controlled spin rates. Featuring a firm tip and stiff butt section, the shaft features a constant taper design with proportionate wall thickness for maximum energy transfer and increased distance. According to KBS research, the combination of design attributes and a lighter overall weight (105-115g) produce an average of 5 more yards than comparable models. 

According to Kim Braly, KBS Director of R&D and Tour Operations, the C-Taper Lite is a result of both player demand and a need to fill a small hole in the KBS lineup. 

"You want to have a product for everybody from a fitting standpoint and we didn't really have anything for a good player who wanted a lighter weight shaft that could still control spin and trajectory. I began thinking about a lighter C-Taper design just as we started getting a lot of inquiries about the original C-Taper, which some recreational players felt was a little too stout for their needs. The overall result is a shaft that's more playable for a wider variety of golfers, but with the same benefits of the original." 

The KBS C-Taper Lite provides a smooth feel and comes with a unique, brushed satin finish. Available in R (105g), S (110g), and X (115g) models.
