  • Product Description

     Mitsubishi Kuro Kage XT Golf Shaft Review

    I. Who is the Mitsubishi Kuro Kage XT Golf Shaft For:

    This tour-proven low/mid-launching low-spinning golf shaft is for the player looking for a first-in-class product built on a platform that has stood the test of time! The Mitsubishi Kuro Kage XT was designed based on the legendary Diamana White Board, which rose to cult following after Tiger Woods played it in his driver for several years! Utilizing a blend of 40- and 46-ton modulus graphite and strategic integration of titanium nickel (TiNi) in the tip section for enhanced stability, this golf shaft creates a phenomenal stability and performance. Players with faster tempos, late releases, moderate swing speeds, desiring a low/mid-launching bend profile, low spin rates, want to get a penetrating trajectory will benefit from this golf shaft! The Mitsubishi Kuro Kage XT has fit phenomenally into a number of PGA Tour, NCAA, and competitive golfers looking for a low/mid-launching bend profile and tight responsive feel!

    II. What Do I Need to Know About the Mitsubishi Kuro Kage XT Golf Shaft:

    Many have speculated that this is the actual shaft played by Rory McIlroy, regardless; it is a no-nonsense low/mid-launching low spin driver shaft that has a smooth and non-harsh feel to it. For those that are in between the Diamana B- and W-Series, this would be the way to go! Simple as that…One distinguishing element that calls attention is the use of a titanium nickel wire mesh in the tip section, for a stout and responsive feel at impact. From experience, this not only helps with tip stability, but also gives a little weight at the tip section for a subtle “hammer effect”. Definitely one of our favorite driver shafts!

    The overarching theme of this golf shaft is one of peak performance integrated into a tour-proven premium level design. What is great about the Kuro Kage XT is that it is offered in a full gamete of weight options making it a strong candidate for those wanting consistency through their fairway woods and driver. It also pairs well with the B-series for those who want a slightly higher 3- and 5-wood launch. This shaft has been seen in the bags of many PGA tour players!

    Player Profile: Tempo: fast, Transition: aggressive, Release: late, Swing Speed: fast, Trajectory: low/mid, Spin: low.

    1. Kuro Kage XT

      Shaft was very stable but was not difficult to load and had a great feel. I rented the AD-GP and Rogue at the same time and this was my favorite of the 3. on 21st Sep 2016

    KURO KAGE by Mitsubishi Rayon

    KURO KAGE: This innovative shaft design would not have been technically possible as little as two or three years ago. Our team of engineers has found a way to create High Density Prepreg: A prepreg material with 15% more carbon fiber and much less resin (20% vs. 33%) than found in most shaft prepreg. By changing the proportions of fiber to resin, and by using High Density Prepreg at specific points along the shaft, we're able to add strength - while at the same time increasing feel - like never before. The result: a potent combination of power and responsiveness.
