KBS TOUR C-TAPER LITE GOLF SHAFTS
The KBS C-Taper Lite is a welcome addition the the KBS line of golf shafts for irons. the C-Taper is one of my favorites when working with a player looking for a lower launch, penetrating ball flight. The profiles are consistent from flex to flex, making it easy to change weight and stiffness while seeking a perfect fit for feel and flight. The KBS C-Taper Lite profiles fall between the C-Taper S and S+. One might say they are a C-Taper S on a diet. The C-Taper Lite is a great shaft if you fit best into a mid weight shaft and want the shaft to keep the ball down to the degree that a shaft can..
A few weeks before the C-Taper Lite released, I caught up with Kim Braly at the PGA Tour Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial tournament. This interview was shot next to the driving range. We talked about Kim’s early days at PGA Tour events, iron fitting and the C-Taper Lite.
The weight range of the KBS C-Taper Lite family of shafts is exactly in the sweet spot for the slightly stronger than average golfer. It is available from many of the brands as an option. I have ordered a number sets mixed to create ascending weight sets from the Mizuno custom department. A nice finishing touch to these sets is to use the S or X flex 8 iron shaft in your wedges. It creates a spinner shaft as taught in the past to Royal Precision Rifle Shaft builders.
