Mitsubishi Rayon Rolls Out New Shafts

Mitsubishi Rayon has rolled out in recent months a trio of new shaft offerings, beginning with the Diamana W- and B-Series shafts, which are the latest iteration of that iconic shaft brand made exclusively for woods.
Company technicians say that the key to the performance of these products is the utilization of an unusual material called 80-ton pitch fiber that is stronger than standard fiber and designed to maximize energy transfer. In addition, these shafts employ next generation multidimensional interlay (MDI) technology that allows Mitsubishi to layer carbon fiber in different directions to create very specific bend and torsion characteristics, for better control and minimal shaft deformation.
At the same time, the tip section of the W- and B-Series offerings feature a new Tough-Qure prepreg (which is what shaft makers call the combination of sheets of carbon and the resin that binds them) for improved feel and feedback. As for the new Kuro Kages, these are second-generation products that feature a smooth bend profile with a softer midsection balanced by a slightly stiffer tip and butt section.
