KBS, the fastest-growing shaft brand in golf that built its reputation on crafting precision Tour iron shafts, is introducing another product line already adopted by some of the game’s biggest names.
The new KBS Tour S-Taper shaft is based on the same bend profile as the KBS Tour shaft – the top-selling KBS shaft that has accounted for the majority of the brand’s numerous Tour victories.
The S-Taper shaft incorporates elongated step patterns to control spin. It helps to generate a stable performance throughout the swing for a superior feel, while still maintaining shot workability for those players seeking a mid-launch coupled with a low to mid-spin shaft.
Head Professionals at some of the country’s most iconic golf courses have given the latest waterproofs from Galvin Green their personal seal of approval and ranked the new C-Knit™ backer technology among the most outstanding innovations in the apparel sector.
Brian Hodgkinson, long-serving Head Professional at Royal Birkdale which hosts this year’s Open Championship, rates the new GORE-TEX® Shell stretch fabric ARGON jacket and ARN trousers with the revolutionary C-Knit™ backer as the best waterproofs he’s ever used.
“The suit is extremely light and goes on easily and quickly, which can be very useful if caught in a squall at Royal Birkdale. The freedom of movement is exceptional – better than any waterproof I’ve ever worn before. Galvin Green has a strapline ‘we never compromise’ and the new suit is certainly evidence of that statement,” added Brian, who has stocked the brand since 1999. (more…)
Motocaddy, the UK’s top-selling trolley brand, has unveiled its most technologically advanced electric trolley ever along with a free GPS app that connects to the trolley to provide distance data plus mobile alerts.
Following extensive product development, the S5 CONNECT trolley can be synced to the app via a Bluetooth connection on any compatible smartphone; allowing the trolley’s digital display to be used in place of a conventional GPS, offering golfers front, middle and back distances to the green (in yards or metres), along with the par of the hole, clock and round timer. The digital control button works in the same way as other Motocaddy models, regulating the nine speed settings and stopping and starting as required around the course.
But, in another ground-breaking move, the new S5 CONNECT can also receive notifications alerting the golfer of an incoming call, text, email or range of app alerts including WhatsApp and Facebook. The phone can remain connected even when securely placed in the pocket of a golf bag or being charged by the trolley’s patented USB charging port. (more…)
