KBS LAUNCHES 1 ONE STEP TOUR PUTTER SHAFT
Golf shaft brand KBS has launched a new putter shaft that is designed to lead to more consistent performance on the greens for all levels of golfer.
Designed by Kim Braly, KBS’s Director of R&D, the 1 One Step Putter Shaft provides golfers with more flexibility in creating a pure amplified feel and reduced vibration at impact for more accurate and consistent putts.
Weighing 6g more than conventional putters, at 130g, the 1 One Step Putter Shaft is a single bend, straight tip model measuring 0.370 in diameter.
“On average, around 45% of strokes per round involve your putter, so we wanted to create a shaft with varying putter head weights per stroke that puts more confidence in the hands of those who currently aren’t that confident on the greens,” said Braly. “A lot of time and investment has gone into producing another putter shaft that can be played by a Tour pro or a higher handicapper. On the green it’s all about feel, and the 1 One Step creates that pure feel, enabling a smooth stable stroke each and every time. The research we did saw many more putts holed, so I’m excited to see how golfers react to it,” he added.
As the second putter shaft to be created by KBS, the 1 One Step shaft follows the popular CT Tour version launched in 2019 and comes in chrome, matte black and gloss black finishes.
KBS now offers 30 different shafts through the golf bag, including 18 iron options featuring different weights and flexes. There are also four wedge shafts, a hybrid shaft and the new TG Graphite Wood shaft.
The KBS 1 One Step putter shaft will be available from next month. Check with your local pro or clubmaker as fitting prices may vary.
