As a club professional, one of the most common questions I get asked by my members (besides “Is it gonna rain today?”) is, “Which shaft is right for me?”

Without knowing the player’s game and swing, it can often be a difficult question to answer. But shaft maker KBS has made it quicker and easier for recreational golfers to get a shaft recommendation from the comfort of their home.

KBS is quickly becoming a household name among equipment manufacturers. Its shafts were used by the first three major championship winners in 2013: Adam ScottJustin Rose and Phil Mickelson (Click their names to see all the clubs in their bags).

KBS’ shaft fitting site, updated Friday to include its new C Taper Lite shafts and provide better functionality, surveys the golfer on multiple aspects of their swing and golf game including six iron distance, driver swing speed, trajectory preferences, weighting preferences and spin preferences. Once you have answered all the questions, the system makes three different shaft recommendations: irons, hybrids and wedges.

KBS also recognizes that club fittings are more successful with the assistance of a PGA fitting professional, so they give the golfer the nearest KBS shaft fitters to their location.

Run your numbers today and see what KBS Shafts would work best for you, then go out to your local KBS fitting center and see the difference that KBS shafts can make in your game.
