Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black HBP Shaft Review

Mitsubishi Rayon

(H/T Golf Tips Magazine)

Key Features: Not unlike the original Kuro Kage, the Black edition has a smooth bend profile, but with a softer mid-section, stiffer tip and butt section, and a higher balance point. In simple terms, it lightens the club’s swingweight for more speed without adding length to the shaft. Oh, yeah, and it has all the fancy Prepreg composite technology one would expect from a premium MRC shaft. One can expect a mid-launch with mid-spin rates with this shaft. 

Specs: Available in four weight models (50g, 60g, 70g, 80g) in a variety of flexes.

Mitsubishi Rayon Fubuki Z Shaft Review


(H/T Golf Tips Magazine)

Key Features: The Fubuki Z shafts are designed for golfers who want a stable shaft that promotes a low-spin, high-launch ballflight. Go ahead and add some loft to your driver, and let the Fubuki Z help do some work in reducing spin, thus helping you hit the ball farther and straighter. By the way, the Fubuki Z feels really smooth. Need a lower launch? Try the Fubuki ZT for a mid-height ballflight. 

Specs: Available in three models in X, S, R flexes.

Mitsubishi Fubuki Driver Shaft

Overview-Mitsubishi Fubuki

The Mitsubishi Fubuki was release in 2008′ but continues to grow in enthusiasm and following.  The Fubuki has many sound features including the Modulus Differential Technology (MDT), the technical component behind the shaft. MDT incorporates a revolutionary state of the art design consisting of high modulus material combined with specialized, responsive, pitch based fiber in and above the tip section.

The Fubuki is considered a mid to high kick point shaft with a generous helping of Torque, which makes this shaft extremely responsive.  Most importantly, the overall design allows for various materials to harmoniously work together to promote an enhanced feel and stability. Maybe equally important, MDT offers a significant reduction in golf shaft deformation and lag. This reduction makes it possible to see consistent spin reduction along with a more repeatable dynamic launch angle.
