KBS announces availability of C-Taper Lite shaft with PING

BOULDER, Colo. -- KBS is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the C-Taper Lite shaft with PING. The decision by PING to offer the C-Taper Lite shaft in their Custom Department comes just two months after KBS introduced the shaft in July. The C-Taper Lite compliments the existing product line of KBS shafts by offering golfers a lighter weight, controlled spin and mid-high launch option.

Available immediately for custom orders at PING, the C-Taper Lite shaft is taper tip and comes in three flexes, Regular (105g), Stiff (110g) and X-Stiff (115g). Contact a local KBS Fitter or PING Dealer for ordering options and up charge information. The C-Taper Lite shaft has been adopted by multiple players on the PGA and Web.com Tours for its smooth feel and tight dispersion benefits. Recently, KBS had multiple top 10 finishes on the Web.com Tour with the C-Taper Lite.

The C-Taper Lite iron shaft incorporates proven KBS performance benefits - piercing trajectory and smooth feel - in a lighter weight design. Featuring a constant taper design and proportionate increase in wall thickness, the C-taper Lite maximizes energy transfer for maximum distance. As a result, an average of 5 yards increased distance was seen during robot testing. The C-Taper Lite comes with the signature KBS brushed satin finish.

"We are excited for the immediate offering of the C-Taper Lite in PING's custom department. The C-Taper Lite has been through extensive player testing and R&D. The results have been terrific and we think the shaft will match well with either PING's player preferred or game improvement irons." said Rob Cheng, CEO of KBS Golf Shafts.
