OBAN KIYOSHI GOLD DRIVER SHAFT
The OBAN Kiyoshi Gold Driver shaft was introduced in 2014. It is the latest and perhaps the last we are told, of the Kiyoshi family of shafts from Oban composites. This high modulus composite shaft features a tip section that is softer than all of the other Kyoshi models. Looking at the EI bend profile of this shaft, the shaft maintains it’s softness throughout the shaft into the butt section when compared to the other Kyoshi models. We used the 65 in 04 (stiff) flex when testing. Although this shaft didn’t seem to be a perfect match for our tester, it did give us some interesting data to look at.
