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.
