The parallel KBS Tour Graphite Iron, TGI shafts released earlier this year and was reviewed in May. The constant weight, taper tip version just released in July 2018. It took KBS longer than expected to get the constant weight taper profiles where they wanted them. In this video, shot in January at the PGA Merchandise Show, Kim Braly talks about the Tour Graphite iron Shafts.

If you do not fully understand the difference between parallel and constant weight tapers please read the Technical article “Parallel vs Constant Weight Iron Shafts“, Lets move on to look at the measurments of the KBS TGI tapers.

Mitsubishi Diamana X Golf Shaft Review

Mitsubishi Diamana X Golf Shaft Review

The Mitsubishi Diamana X is another of a small number of super shafts in the $750 plus price point. It is a white board profile, restricting it to those that are looking for a low launch, low spin shaft design. To quote Mitsubishi Chemical, “The Diamana™ X-Series continues to push the limits of golf shaft performance by taking a spare no expense approach to materials, design and innovation. The new Diamana™ X-Series utilizes our patented Multi-Dimensional Interlay (M.D.I.) construction technique, and features 90-Ton and 78-Ton DIALEAD™ Pitch Fiber angle plies combined with a full-length application of our MR70 fiber – the strongest carbon fiber in today’s market, to deliver one of the most stable, lowest torque, high-performance golf shafts Mitsubishi Chemical has ever developed.” I could not have said it any better than that, now, let’s look at the measurements to see what makes the Diamana X worth $750 to a golfer.
