The ACCRA Tour Z has been a staple in the ACCRA product line. The Tour Z Extreme is an updated version, using higher density prepreg and Kevlar in the tip.There are two models designed to compliment each other. The Tour ZX 400 series exhibits a profile known to produce a mid launch low spin. The TourZx 200 Series is typical of a higher launch higher spin design. The stiffness is very consistent across weights. The shafts do not get noticeably stiffer as they get heavier. Paring the TourZx 200 in a fairway with a TourZx 400 in a driver creates a great combination for most golfers. A more penetrating lower spinning drive and a higher launching, higher spinning flight in a fairway.

The discussion between Woody Lashen, a long time Fit2Score Affiliate and Gawain Robertson, do owner of ACCRA golf gets to the TourZ at the 10:30 mark. It was shot at the 2016 PGA merchandise show.

 The profiles are consistent with earlier designs. The TourZx 200 series resembles the earlier Tour Z LS. The TourZx 400 is much like the TourZ ST. This is quite common, remaking a design that was successful with new materials.

Mitsubishi Diamana M+ Diamana S+ Diamana D+ Golf Shaft Review

Mitsubishi Diamana Limited Golf Shaft Review
Diamana M+  Diamana S+ Diamana D+

Several years ago the lines between “Made For” shafts supplied in off the rack clubs and premium after market shafts blurred. Several shaft companies made the premium aftermarket shafts they promote on tour available to the golf club manufacturers. It is a marketing conundrum. The club companies are the largest customers by a HUGE number. The golf club companies, are not inclined to have their products compromised by inferior shafts. This year, 2016, we saw the price of some drivers increase as premium shafts became standard. For some shaft brands, the stock shaft product is the aftermarket shaft. For others like Mitsubishi, it is different graphics, but in the case of the Diamana Limited, a very close match with slightly different graphics.

The review samples were limited to one shaft of each model. That is not my typical sample matrix, but it was enough to compare to premium aftermarket Diamana shafts and understand the differences.

If you are familiar with the loading, flighting and feel of the Diamana Red, Blue and White shafts you will know these shafts. You will find a complete range of designs and stiffness offered as standard in the Titleist 917 Drivers. A great shaft that will not detract in any way from the performance of a great driver head.
