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.

    Why is there no “FM” information on the CTL tapered shaft???????

    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

SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

Wilson’s new FG Tour V6 RAW irons (yes, they will rust)

Published

on

Wilson came out with its FG Tour V6 irons in 2016, but these new Raw versions have a different look… and with time, they’ll have a VERY different look.

The new FG Tour V6 Raw irons have an unplated finish, and they’re designed to “develop a unique patina based on age, exposure and use over time,” according to Wilson. This gives each iron a unique look, and one that’s far from the clean cut original FG Tour release that had a chrome finish (which won’t rust).

In addition to the rusting effect, the irons are different because they have a copper badge in the cavity that will eventually match the color of the golf club over time. Here’s a graphic mock-up of how the Raw irons may look overtime.

Like the original releases, the irons have tungsten weights and mass behind the impact area for a “forged feel” and “improved feedback,” according to the company.

The FG Tour V6 Raw irons are a custom option on Wilson.com, and are available through Wilson’s premium partner accounts as of today, Tuesday, June 19. According to Wilson, the Raw irons “are a very limited production run,” so only a certain amount of sets will even be built.
