    Right. I think XT and XM were also made with better materials than KK Silver/Black. Made in Japan as oppose to China or where ever they make Silver/Black




    Yup! that's for sure correct. The stock KK black/silver/XM, etc are all more "budget" shafts vs the whole XT family which are premium, higher end materials.



    It's interesting that the info from Mitsu, above, says it's HIGH launch and low spin. I believe the previous XTs were mid/low and low spin.



    "In the XD series, we are pursuing even lower spin by evolving this titanium nickel fiber to "dual core" where it is arranged in two layers.

    It prevents "hit loss" of the shaft tip part at the time of impact and creates a high trajectory of low spin."



    One thing I know is that the XD is supposed to have SUPER low torque.




    Torque values listed in the link n the first post are about where many of MCA’s shafts are torque-wise. The x’17 is lower torque than the XD.

    You may well be right! And, if you are, I bet we DON'T see many tour guys move to the XD, because, they would have already (by switching to the KKDC TX flex (XT)) if it's the same shaft. The only players that did were Sergio (won Masters with them in D, 3w and 5w and still using them) and Peter Uhlein (driver), I believe.



    Everyone else in the old gen XT



    I completely agree with the confusion comment. I mean, look at this thread! It's dizzying for us all and we are golf gear nerds. And, the new color of the Tensei shafts (the non-pro model in the M3 and 4) isn't helping things either. Not same as pro Tensei.....



    I've had lengthy conversations with the guys at Fujikura (GREAT GUYS) and they are very much on board with making shaft lines more "understandable" to the public. They were SUPER open minded to the feedback. I think they've made huge strides in making their stuff more distinguishable since the Evolutions..... I think Mitsu has some room to improve here, yet. But, they sure do make great stuff.

    I think they change the Pro White to the silver color as well. Remember seeing their catalog for 2018 posted somewhere on here. Wild guess, but Taylormade possible struck a deal so that their stock shafts look the same as what Tiger and others play.

    It's different than the Dual Core XT. It's lower torque than the XT and has a bit different make up in the Tini wire. It is supposed to be low torque, low spin, but I can't really tell you how it compares head to head with the Dual Core XT. Believe it or not, it's not a product we have tested yet. It was a sooner than anticipated release by Mitsubishi Japan, so it is the rare piece I can't really comment on just yet, in terms of performance. Hopefully that will change soon, but it is definitely a different shaft than the Dual Core XT or TX flex.

    I’m curious as to what the torque specs are on the dual core XT 70 TX. The Mitsu website is useless because they aren’t listed anywhere.



    A standard dual core 70 X is listed at 3.1

    A standard silver XT 70 TX is listed at 3.2.

    The dual core with the XT tip in 70TX then is almost certainly less than 3.1 since it is a blending of the two.



    The new XD literature listed in the first post says the 70TX is 2.9.



    If the translation Noodle provided earlier is correct, it seems to be EXACTLY describing what the current dual core XT is in the 70TX and 60TX flex.:



    Two-layered titanium nickel "DUAL CORE" realizes even lower spin. Hit the distance up with toughness not to be defeated.

    In the XT series released in 2015, "titanium nickel fiber" which has the property of recovering its original shape promptly even when it is deformed is compound molded at the tip.

    In the XD series, we are pursuing even lower spin by evolving this titanium nickel fiber to "dual core" where it is arranged in two layers.

    It prevents "hit loss" of the shaft tip part at the time of impact and creates a high trajectory of low spin.

    The info I relayed is straight from the mouth of the source. It's not the same shaft. Who knows, it could be better, similar, or worse. I don't know yet. How different the performance is between the two, I don't know. I'll let you guys know when we get through the testing process and evaluate them.

    Was hoping Toll would chime in! He’s the one that explained everything to me PRE XD. His take certainly reinforce the reps explanation that I relayed about. The XD is NOT a rebranded TX flex of a former XT, namely the KKDC in TX flex.

    We should have some performance and player analysis comparisons I can share within a week or two on it. Right now, we haven't hit with being gone for a week and shut down. It's pretty much a "next up" product for data collection. It's certainly a product I'm anxious to hit. What I most am curious about is if it is able to retain that unicorn quality you hear so much about from the guys that play the Dual Core XT. That is that it's very smooth when you swing easy, but has the sensation of stiffening up the more you lean into it. That's what makes it so special, and I'm curious to see if that feel is something that applies to XD as well.

    Looking forward to your review Toll! I, for one, found the KKDC XT (60 TX) to be a bit much for my move. Quite stout. VERY low spin (lowest when tested against Tensei White and OG XT). In terms of spin killing, it was right there w the T1100 for me. But, that may vary per player of course.

    I like the way you describe the Dual Core XT.. I’ve been playing it for a year now in 70TX.



    I like your description of its “strangeness”. It is a strange shaft in that when I swing deliberately easy and smooth it doesn’t feel terribly stiff. Surprisingly soft actually. It has no issue with an 80% effort and will still kick for me, even though it’s a TX.



    Then you can go up a gear with it at 95% on that dog left par 5 and hit the high hard draw and it seems to magically firm up as you swing it harder. It’s just really rare that this thing ever feels to firm or too soft. Quite Weird.



    I have essentially stopped looking for shafts since I found this guy, and I previously have never owned a shaft I could get consistently below 3000 rpm’s.



    I would agree 100% that it is a “Unicorn”.....that Said, it won’t suit a LOT of players out there. Not enough spin actually.

    Exactly. It is highly unlikely in that "varying flex" feel dynamic. I've really never felt another shaft quite like it. And you are correct, it is very low spin. Too low for most average golfers, which is why I can't see the XD being lower spin, as it would really put it fitting a very small demographic. I would say overall, we have had the highest level of sales, coupled with overwealmingly positive feedback with Dual Core XT and Synergy Black. DCXT is a very popular shaft among better players.

    Exactly! @Toll writes perfectly why the current XT is so good..and I don't want "stout" if it messes up that syrupy feel. Can't wait to see what you guys think after testing.

    MCA’s US Press Release



    http://www.mca-golf....0118 vFINAL.pdf




    From the release:



    “Lower torque, launch and spin than the XT” with 1.5 times LONGER Dual Core TiNi wire in the outer piles for increased feel and performance”.



    Wow. The XT has 13 inches of wire up the tip. This one must have about 20 inches in the dual core layout. Sounds exciting.



    Oh boy. I predict a winner... An improved DCXT.... I’m not sure if they can do that......Time to Replenish the PayPal account.

    2 weeks ago I think? But they might be backed up in testing, or waiting until they have them in hand?

    Was hoping Toll would chime in! He’s the one that explained everything to me PRE XD. His take certainly reinforce the reps explanation that I relayed about. The XD is NOT a rebranded TX flex of a former XT, namely the KKDC in TX flex.




    We should have some performance and player analysis comparisons I can share within a week or two on it. Right now, we haven't hit with being gone for a week and shut down. It's pretty much a "next up" product for data collection. It's certainly a product I'm anxious to hit. What I most am curious about is if it is able to retain that unicorn quality you hear so much about from the guys that play the Dual Core XT. That is that it's very smooth when you swing easy, but has the sensation of stiffening up the more you lean into it. That's what makes it so special, and I'm curious to see if that feel is something that applies to XD as well.
    Patiently awaiting your feedback! I am playing the original XT (non dual core) now. Would love to see how that compares.

    He said in another thread a couple days ago that they’ve done the testing but he is waiting for the bosses approval to post the results.

    Looking forward to this.

    Would really like to see some Japanese shafts and the new TPT shaft compared too, if possible. That would be unreal. Regardless, **** of a job. We appreciate it.
