    KBS MAX Graphite Iron Shafts

    The NEW KBS MAX Graphite Iron shaft is designed for a wide range of players seeking to MAXimize the performance of their iron shafts with trajectory, spin, and distance in a consistent, lighter weight package, making it easier for you to produce performance on every shot. Switch into KBS and MAX OUT YOUR GAME.

    Based off the same E.I. Curve as the KBS MAX Steel Shaft, the NEW KBS MAX GRAPHITE IRON SHAFT will fit players using “swing speed” rather than the traditional “flex”. This will allow players with lower swing speeds the ability to hit the ball at a higher launch/spin with accuracy in a performance graphite iron shaft.

    I just received my new Apex CF 19 (6-A) with the KBS Max graphite shafts. I got the 50 gram shaft, since I was looking for a senior type flex. I could have gone to 60 gram, but went with the lightest. So far i have two rounds in with them, and I'm very pleased. It is the straightest hitting shaft I have ever used. Between the soft feel of the Apex head, combined with this shaft...pure butter. From the 8 to the A wedge, my distances are similar to my last set (Callaway Rogue X), but the 6 and 7 are maybe6-10 yards less, however much more accurate. I think I'll get the 5 and maybe the 4, these are so easy to hit. Lastly, I find the shaft has anice medium trajectory with no ballooning. Highly recommend the shafts in any weight.
