KBS adds new C-Taper Lite shaft with parallel tip

Published

on

The C-Taper Lite shaft KBS released in June is now available in a parallel-tip model that complements the original tapered-tip design.

The shaft has the same mid-launch, mid-spin performance as the original C-Tape Lite tapered tip shaft but comes comes with a parallel tip in 108.5, 118.5 and 125-gram weights.

“The addition of the C-Taper Lite parallel tip shaft assists in diversifying our line,” said Kim Braly, director of R&D and Tour Operations at KBS. “Despite this being a lighter weight shaft, the C-Taper Lite actually fits a large amount of strong players.”

C-Taper Lite parallel tip shafts can be purchased through the KBS fitter network. Check out the full KBS C-Taper Lite specs below.

    Is there an advantage of one over the other or is just the two different hosel widths?

    Have these in my irons in taper tip. They are great. Mid launch great feel. Very consistent. More consistent than my swing.

    About five years ago, you could get almost any steel shaft with parallel tip.
    Now it is getting harder to find them in component catalog.
    Taper tips are taking over.
    True Temper offers almost no parallel tip other than TT Dynamic Gold.

    Great. I have a taper tip in 3 iron and love it. Only problem is the price, over forty bucks a piece is a joke

Brooks-Koepka-Mizuno-JPX919

Brooks Koepka is in action this week at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship equipped with a new driver and set of irons.

Golf.com’s Jonathan Wall broke the news, via Twitter, that Kopeka has TaylorMade’s new M5 Driver in his bag this week, as well as Mizuno’s JPX 919 Tour Irons.

The three-time major champ used TaylorMade’s M3 460 Driver and Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons throughout 2018, and it appears as if Koepka is happy to make the transition to both manufacturers latest additions of those series of clubs right from the get-go in 2019.

FEATURED-Titleist-AP-3-Black-Titleist-AP-2-Black-400

Titleist has unveiled new 718 AP2 Black and 718 AP3 Black irons in limited black finish that will be available to purchase from March 1.

Previously only available in a traditional chrome finish, the new Titleist 718 AP2 Black and Titleist 718 AP3 Black irons are finished with a sleek, high polish black PVD coating. The irons feature True Temper AMT Onyx shafts stock. The shafts’ powder coat matte black finish aims to minimize glare (in addition to looking cool). An all-black Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grip is standard as well.

Speaking on the move to release the irons in black, Josh Talge, Vice President, Golf Club Marketing said

“One request we heard from both tour players and amateurs, particularly those who have gravitated toward our Jet Black Vokey SM7 wedges, was if they could have these same irons in a darker finish. Our team spent a lot of time making sure the aesthetics were done just right. It’s a look that you just have to see.”

A quick refresher on the two models, below.

Titleist 718 AP3 Black

The 718 AP3 iron is a players distance iron which features a hollow-blade design with high-speed face technology. According to Titleist, the company merged the technology found in their AP1 and AP2 irons to create the AP3, which the company are calling their longest and fastest players iron ever.

Commenting on the AP3, Talge stated

“AP3 truly represents the best of both worlds. We’re giving you the distance and forgiveness of a game improvement iron packed into the look and feel of a player’s iron.”

The set is made up of 4-iron through 48-degree wedge. The AP3 Black irons, which are available for right-handers only, are available to purchase from March 1 and will cost $187.50 per club or $1,499/set of 8.

The 718 AP2 iron features a co-forged cavity back design which aims to provide consistent distance and forgiveness, while also delivering excellent feel to all golfers.

Speaking concerning the AP2 iron, Talge had this to say

“AP2 is the most popular tour iron globally because it combines the look and feel tour players demand with the precise distance control they need to consistently hit their target, shot after shot. For everyone else, it’s the tour iron within reach, because it is so forgiving.”

The set is made up of 4-iron through 50-degree wedge. Also available for right-handers only, the irons are available to purchase from March 1 and will cost $187.50 per club or $1,499/set of 8 as well.
