Since being introduced in 2008 worldwide, KBS Tour™ shafts continue blazing a trail on Tour trusted by numerous players within the world's top 100. This season, KBS Tour shafts have already delivered 4 victories worldwide along with 5 runner up finishes. Last year, KBS Tour shafts completed an outstanding year with 15 tournament victories, eight achieved on the PGA Tour.
According to Rob Cheng, Director of Global Operations for KBS, "This weekend's achievement is yet another highlight for the KBS Tour brand as we continue to develop inroads on Tour and promote our advanced shaft technology. The KBS team is very excited for the win and following the introduction of the new KBS C-Taper shaft, the timing is perfect."
Just last week, KBS introduced their brand-new C-Taper shaft incorporating a similar design concept taken from the KBS Tour shaft optimized for a lower trajectory and reduced spin. The all-new C-Taper shaft is based on feedback taken from Tour professionals worldwide complementing the performance of the popular and already tour-winning KBS Tour shaft.
KBS Tour™ designs are based on optimal shaft geometry to improve club performance. As explained by renowned shaft designer Kim Braly, "KBS Tour designs incorporate a unique distribution of stiffness along the center-line maximizing energy transfer and load into the club head. When properly fitted, each shaft within our product line should enhance player feel and shot dispersion with maximum total distance."
Formalized in 2007, KBS Tour shafts are the premiere brand of steel golf shafts designed and manufactured by FEMCO Steel Technology (FST) headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. Since 1949, FEMCO has remained committed to providing the highest quality steel products and services worldwide.
