KBS Introduces the Tour-V

Today, KBS Golf Shafts announces an all-new steel shaft, the Tour-V. Like the tour proven KBS Tour shaft, the KBS Tour-V provides tight shot dispersion. The difference in the KBS Tour-V is its lighter weight and less ball spin for players who prefer it. The KBS Tour-V shaft, the newest addition to the KBS line has already been proven on professional tours with wins worldwide, including the 2013 Open Championship.

The new KBS Tour-V shaft compliments the popular KBS Tour shaft, the fastest growing steel shaft on the PGA Tour. The KBS Tour-V shaft is available in three flexes: R-100g, S-110g, and X-120g. The Tour-V shaft is available for pre-order immediately through authorized KBS dealers with orders shipping November 1st.

Notably, the KBS Tour-V shaft has been chosen by Callaway Golf as the stock shaft for their newest player’s iron, the Apex Pro. Available in all three flexes, the Apex Pro iron will be on sale Q1 2014.

“We are very excited to introduce the KBS Tour-V shaft. It has been tested and perfected over the past year and a half, and truly delivers on offering a tight dispersion shaft in a light weight package. The results we get from PGA Tour player testing are spot on. Dispersion with the Tour-V is some of the tightest we have ever seen and it maintains our signature smooth feel at impact. Lighter weight has become more popular and this allows golfers to swing a little easier. Our team is thrilled to bring this shaft to market and chosen as the stock shaft for Callaway’s new Apex Pro iron.” said Kim Braly, Director of R&D and Tour Operations at KBS Golf Shafts.

During player and robot testing, the KBS team has seen terrific results. The Tour-V offers a slightly different performance: up to 20% tighter shot dispersion than other popular shafts on the PGA Tour, 10% lighter weight and a mid trajectory. This distinction in performance allows KBS to offer golfers yet another terrific option to improve their iron play.
