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.

    Will these make my shots go further into the woods?

    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

Forum Thread of the Day: Cobra’s new King F9 “Speedback” driver?

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day revolves around information on Cobra’s latest releases. News of Cobra’s King CB/MB irons, which were created in tandem with Rickie Fowler, were released a couple of days ago, and in the thread titled “Cobra ’19 News?”, GolfWRX members got a peak at what else Cobra has lined up for its followers.

GolfWRX member cbuescher has revealed some fascinating information on possible future Cobra products, dishing out details on what are apparently Cobra’s new F9 drivers.

“F9 drivers look great.  No more F8+…..just one head with three different loft options.  Found out that the old F7/F8 adapters will fit new heads, but new adapters are labeled differently.  They now say STD, +1, -1, +1.5, etc.  The three different loft options will have the standard lofts as 9.0, 10.5, or 12. Drivers and fairways have a similar look as before but they’ve added two “turbulators” on the back of the crown. The driver will have 2 color options.”

GolfWRX forum members were also privy to information gleaned from cbuescher on Cobra’s new fairway wood and hybrid line:

“Fairway woods look almost identical to F8 with the milled face added this year.  Hybrids are a black matte finish and look much better IMO than last year.  Several of you asked about the KING Forged iron.  Unfortunately this club has gone away…they felt like Forged Tech was a better fit for that gap and the King Forged was not needed anymore.”
