Aldila Rogue 130MSI White Golf Shaft Review

Aldila Rogue 130MSI White Driver Shaft Review

The Aldila Rogue driver shafts have now all been reissued with 130 MSI prepreg. The Aldila website informs us that Mitsubishi Chemical fiber and prepreg is used exclusively in the shaft. Mitsubishi acquired Aldila several years ago. Aldila and Mitsubishi are one of the few brands, perhaps the only brand, in the business to produce the materials their shafts are made with. Lets look at the EI profiles.

Aldila 2KXV Hybrid Golf Shaft Review

Aldila 2KXV NV Hybrid Golf Shafts Review

The 2KXV NV is not a new shaft. I measured the Orange and Green models in 2016 according to my notes. I did not measure the 2KXV Blue and therefore never published the review. In looking through shafts that had not been reviewed I was sent the review shafts with the 2KXV Blue Driver Shafts. Many of my fitting friends work with these shafts. From what I see in the measurements they are one of the best deals in the market.

Aldila 2KVX NV Blue Golf Shaft Review

Aldila 2KVX NV Blue Driver Shaft Review

The Aldila 2KVX-NV series is popular with many of club fitters. While it is reasonably priced it does not sacrifice quality or performance. The NV Blue got overlooked when I reviewed the Orange and Green 2KVX-NV Driver Shafts. Aldila shafts are designed in fitting families. The 2KVX-NV follows that tradition.

the 2KVX-NV Blue is the mid launch member of the series. It is made of thin layers of high strength fiber. Those thin layers allowed Aldila engineers to craft linear designs without compromising torque or hoop strength of the shaft.

Aldila Quaranta Driver Shaft Review

Aldila Quaranta Driver Shaft Review

The Aldila Quaranta shafts are light weigh only, reminding me of the Ultra Light Mitsubishi Bassara shafts. So many other shaft designs have been extended down to the 50 gram range that I have moved away from fitting with Ultra Light models. The tip stiffness and torque of the Sapphire are impressive.
This video was shot at the 2019 PGA Merchandise show outdoors on demo day were the grass grows and the wind blows. The second camera was out of focus, but the discussion of the Aldila products was to good to ignore. The Quaranta discussion starts at the 4:40 mark. The discussion highlights some aspects of these shafts that you should here before we move on to the numbers.

The Rogue Silver 130 is the latest version of a profile that goes back to some of my earliest measurements. The profile has had great tour success as the Aldila Tour Green. Lets take a look at the Silver 130 MSI profile and then compare it to earlier versions of this design.
