Hybrid Thump imageThe Diamana Thump hybrid golf shaft is the most exotic hybrid golf shaft I have experienced. The price is more than most stock hybrid golf clubs. It is appropriately named, thump, for the feel in your hands as you watch your ball scream towards a distant green. If this review sounds biased, it is, I play this shaft in Miura hybrids. The control is worth every bit of the $200 hybrid shaft.

The butt torque is 2.3 in the 93 gram S and 2.2 in the 103 gram X, making it close to steel. Tip torque is 1.7 in both models, akin to light weight steel. Dispersion control is excellent. If you get tired of hooking your hybrids when you go after a shot, and don’t want to play steel, this shaft is the cure. Radial quality is as good as it gets, making shaft orientation a non issue. It is a low-mid launch design.

In 2012 Mitsubishi announced this shaft would be custom order only and not stocked in the US. It is still available through Mitsubishi dealers, however it is no longer shown in the current brochures. Caveat Emptor, the feel is addicting, Thump, interesting choice of words for a hybrid golf shaft model.
