(4) TESTERS WANTED

KBS $-Taper Iron Shafts

 

 

If you're at all into shaft technology, you no doubt know the name Kim Braly -- the KB of KBS Shafts. His fingerprints are all over some of the most popular shafts in golf history, including the Project X and Rifle shafts, and he co-authored patents for Frequency Matching.

 

Since 2008 KBS has been cranking out some of golf's most popular shafts, including the Tour, the Tour V, the C-Taper and the C-Taper Lite. KBS is favorite of OEM's and fitters alike, and this year Braly is introducing his latest creation, the $-Taper.

 

KBS says the $-Taper (let's call it the Money Taper) is a low-spin, mid-launch shaft designed for feel, workability and distance - KBS calls it Tour feel and Money performance (see what they did there?).

 

As always, we care what you think. MyGolfSpy is looking for 4 avid golfers to test, review and keep a set (4-PW) of the new $-Tapers and let the MGS Community know what you think.
