Boulder, CO. KBS Tour™ steel golf shafts, after 14 PGA Tour wins in less than two years, are attracting golf consumers in growing numbers. In response to anticipated demand from their customers, quality club manufacturer, Mizuno, has added the new KBS Tour shafts as a custom option.
Rob Cheng, Global Sales Director for FST, the company that developed and manufactures the premium steel shafts, stated, "It is very gratifying to have our new KBS Tour shafts selected by Mizuno.
Our company's manufacturing experts worked in unison with well known shaft designer Kim Braly to develop the KBS Tour shafts. These new steel shafts offer a fresh shaft alternative for irons. We are proudly watching our rise in popularity among the world's best players and the world's best clubmakers."
More than 30 regular players on the PGA Tour now play the KBS Tour steel iron shafts and wedge shafts. The players who have switched are improving their world ranking and creating a lot of interest among their peers.
Manufactured by FST, the KBS Tour steel shafts incorporate high-quality precision manufacturing processes such as an exclusive oil- quench tempering system. The shafts are further enhanced with design features that include: step reductions that allow a smooth transfer of energy, a tapered tip section that provides a tour-proven feel, a higher center of gravity to allow more club head mass, and precise shaft weights and frequencies to ensure repeatability and precision club fitting.
