Mitsubishi Bassara UltraLite Hybrid Golf Shaft – Second Generation 2011
The Mitsubishi Bassara Hybrid is an ultra light shaft with weights ranging from 49 to 60 grams. The profile is similar to the earlier Bassara hybrid, but it is 10 grams lighter. And softer. Tip torque ranges from 3.1 to 2.4, butt torque from 4.1 in the 50L to 3.2 in the 60S. Not bad for so little material.
It is a mid launching shaft, and like all Mitsubishi shafts, the radial quality is excellent, meaning the shaft can be installed in any orientation. Ultralights are not for everyone, but if you feel you cannot comfortably handle a club in mid swing with the small muscles of your hands and are resorting to big muscles, it’s time to look into lighter clubs.
