KBS Golf Shafts has added two wedge-specific steel shafts to its line and will debut the new products at the upcoming PGA Merchandise Show and Demo Day, Jan. 20-23, in Orlando, Fla. 
 
“We've gone outside the box designing shafts specific for scoring clubs,” said Kim Braly, head of R&D and Tour operations at KBS Golf Shafts. “They are some of the most important- if not the most important- clubs in a player's bag.”
 
Over two years in development, the new KBS 610 WEDGE Shaft is designed to deliver penetrating ball flight with less spin. The shaft's stiffer butt section combined with the KBS signature step down configuration enhances shot making for the skilled player. This shaft is available in three flexes, from 110-125g.
 
“Our overall goal with these two shafts is to create a wedge-concentrated shaft category,” said Braly. “Wedge shafts are commonly overlooked and we are aiming to tackle this issue, beginning with the HI-REV 2.0 and 610 WEDGE.”
 
The HI-REV 2.0, an updated and improved version of the current HI-REV shaft, features an active tip section that increases the effective loft of the club head. Golfers can expect a higher ball launch with more spin for added stopping power. The HI-REV 2.0 is available in three flexes, from 115-135g.
 
Both shafts will be available for inspection and testing, along with the full KBS product line, at the PGA Merchandise Show Outdoor Demo Day, Tuesday, Jan. 20, Tee #5, Orange County National Golf Center, in Winter Park, Fla.

I like that they are committing to a wedge category and offering a low and high spin option.
 
Barbajo - can you go and test these please!

Those would fit good in my new Wishon wedges. I would probably do a combo on them though. Would put the 610 in my 52* and the others in my 56 and 60. Very interesting though

I was thinking the same thing Stu - I was wondering what the difference in feel would be like between the two variations. A combo sounds like it might be a good option though.
