VA Composites Raijin 2.0 Driver Shaft Review

The VA Composites Raijin 2.0 is the second version of the VA Composites Raijin, the first shaft produced by Victor Afable in 2017. Raijin 2.0 bears no similarity to the original Raijin. It is a different design with new materials and is Filament Wound. There are very few foundries the I know of that can filament wind.

Typically carbon fiber shafts use flags of prepreg wrapped around a mandrel. Filament wound shafts are made by wrapping ribbons of prepreg around a mandrel. This is done automatically removing the skill of a craftsman from accurately positioning the prepreg flag. Orientation of the fiber is built into the prepreg ribbon.
