Again, the Emersion Wrapped Frequency Technology (EWF) is at the heart of the Kiyoshi.    The premium high modulus composite supplied by only the leaders in pre-preg manufacturers.  This combination provides the feel and performance you’ve come to expect from Oban.

Oban Devotion Shaft Review

oban devotion

Overview-

Compared to the Fujikura’s and Aldila’s of the golf shaft industry, Oban is a relative new born.  Don’t tell that to Jim Furyk though, he is one of the highly ranked tour players that is highly devote to the shaft manufacturer.  Oban Devotion is one of the shafts that comes with high praise.

Technology-

Diversity is key the Devotion.  The weight ranges start at 43 grams and goes all the way up to 84 grams.  This is one of the highest weight range available for any high profile market.  Designed to fit into many different swings, the Devotion is very consistent throughout the weight classes.  The Torque and Kick Points diversity is key to this shaft, which changes throughout the line.

The models of the Devotion are 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.  The Devotion 4 & 5 is suited for the golfer seeking higher ball flight and launch and spin – best suited for slower swing speeds.   While the Devotion 6, 7, and 8 progressively gets a tighter/lower ball flight with a lower spin rate, ideal for players that load their shaft and/or quicker tempo.

“I am already quite impressed”

Summary-

The Oban Devotion is already considered a high-end shaft enjoyed by many types of players, with all abilities.  The Devotion is growing in popularity that is beginning to remind me of an old veteran instead of a new-born.
