Review of the KBS 610 and Hi-Rev 2.0 wedge shafts

KBS Wedge Shafts
In just a short period of time KBS have managed to catapult themselves into the mix for ‘best Iron shaft’ around, this is no easy feat so it really says something about the product.
KBS have two new wedge specific shafts for the 2015 season -
I have been testing the new KBS 610 and Hi-Rev 2.0 wedge shafts. The Hi-Rev 2.0 has been brought in to replace the original Hi-Rev shaft, and the KBS 610 wedge is a new shaft for 2015.
KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 Wedge shaft
This new shaft is a higher launching shaft to create more spin on the green. If you have a problem with club head speed and need some additional help with gaining spin then this is the shaft for you. The higher launch and increased spin is created by a loss of stiffness in the tip.
KBS 610 Wedge Shaft
This shaft is an upgrade on Tour V design. One comment often made about the Tour V shaft was the fact it launched the ball fairly high. The 610 remedies that with a long stable butt section and a rapid loss of stiffness around 14” from the tip. If you want a flatter more penetrating flight with your wedge shots without giving away any spin then this is the shaft for you.
Both shafts felt fantastic, it is a very solid feel you do not get with most other shafts. The fact I hit the ball fairly high anyway meant I did prefer the KBS 610 shaft to get a lower flight. I did however speak to higher handicappers who hit the Hi-Rev 2.0 and they loved the fact it helped them launch the ball high to gain more spin.
Compared to other shafts the KBS shafts increase ball speed, launch angle, and spin. This makes for more distance and because you are hitting it further you feel you can make a much more smooth swing. I think this will improve anyone’s game.
