PostSubject: Limited Edition Diamana X - High Modulus Carbon Model   Wed Feb 08, 2012 3:26 pm



Mitsubishi Rayon has once again decided to delve into the high modulus carbon shaft segment currently dominated by Crazy, Quadra, Bangvoo, ATTAS and others. They have decided to release an all new premium high modulus carbon model dubbed the Diamana X. Unlike the limited Stinger model which used an existing boron material, Diamana has gone to its own MCHC Group (Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation) in order to develop an all new 78t high grade carbon sheet to be used in the X.

The Diamana X will be limited to only 5000 pieces and is focused on the athlete golfer/pro and better golfer with a special emphasis on the stability and control for the hard hitter wanting even more distance.

Mitsubishi incorporates a new manufacturing technology they developed called Tough-QURE. Its a new technique used for carbon fiber composite moulding which allows Mitsubishi to cure carbon prepregs at a lower temperature and faster speed. The faster speed allows Mitsubishi two benefits, one to incorporate Black Copolymer Technology which increases durability and two less resin flow which creates carbon that allows for better and more consistent formability thus great for a perfectly rounded shaft with less deformation and inconsistencies.

Thanks to lower torque, consistent load and unload from 78t carbon as well as increased overall stability due to less rounding and deformation, the Diamana X is designed to supress side spin and transfer maximum power by squaring to the target predictably and reducing off center hits. March 3rd is the release date for the new X shaft. There will be 5 models/flexes as seen in the table below topped off by a 70 XX flex with a mere 2.2* of torque. The Diamana X has a mid to high kick made for a strong penetrating launch combined with lots of run.

So far Mitsubishi Rayon has listed a MSRP of 68250 yen which translates to about 900.00 USD



For indent order and price of this shaft, please drop me a PM Smile

its no a shaft for the fainted hearted, both in performance and in price....

MRC will release 2 limited edition shafts this year. this is one of them and its for worldwide release. the other (too be announced soon) will be for the Asian market only and will be based on the Bassara platform. the one for Asian is expected to be more expensive.

Out of curiosity, why is it that asian/japan specs are always more expensive? Sad

The ball flight is not something that ordinary machine made shaft can reproduce. i am sure MRC was not looking to sell loads of these rather they want to make a shaft to showcase their capabilities. Not many shafts have 78 ton prepreg in multi-directional and multi-layers. the shaft is almost 100% hand made.

lots of people will argue that there is no need to spend this sort of money. but if you have a swing to go with your budget tolerance, the Diamana-X is one on your radar.

Anyway, they will stop when they hit 5000 worldwide. they have already sold 4500+ since the launch in April 2012.

Thanks rw18 for your feedback....for the record, rw18 was using the BB 6S previously and he had both shafts to test and evaluate on the range as well as the course to arrive at his observation.

In my experience, this shaft could give one more yardage and others less. But dispersion is super tight and gives much more consistent ball flight to everyone of them, amazingly so that some players didn't mind losing 5 yards or so for more consistent fairway hits.

Having said that, strangely enough, this is one shaft that fit Titleist driver the most. We have been having a hard time fitting Titleist players and now we found the answer. Sadly, at a price...
