    AV White???? This has my interest for sure

    @pga43 does it say "Boron Tip" towards the tip of the shaft by any chance?

    @MITSUBISHI CHEMICAL do you have any more details on these?

    We are working on bringing 2nd Gen Tensei product to market - this is the first week of PGA Tour testing.

    Be sure to stay tuned for more information towards the beginning of 2020!

    Sweet... but may I suggest the top section have a tinted clear coat to match the color of the band? Would transition much more seamlessly and that bright silver woven graphic may become a bit distracting if it reflects the sun. They look a little choppy as is.

    I think adding a color from the bend profile band ruins the clean look of the shaft graphics. Plus, the silver handle section is to highlight the aluminum vapour fibre that is used in the butt section.

    I agree, plus its all about the appeal of the "visible tech", in this case with these aluminum fibers.

    I have one of these shafts and I don't think it is distracting personally. I have not installed it yet but you have to bear in mind that the grip will be covering a decent amount of the silver anyway.

    Does this mean prices on previous generation will come down? Thinking about pulling the trigger on a PO for my M2... I actually like the graphics on the new shafts and honestly, if you're seeing that far up the shaft on your swing, you probably shouldn't be playing these shafts anyway...LOL

    I don’t have the time to stay up on the shafts and new stuff. I was fit in my driver into a tensi Ck Pro Orange at my recent fitting. How would either of these play into the profile I’m playing?

    Is it bad to plug that I have a Tensei Blue AV 75g X-flex for sale right now!? Looking to get out what I paid.

    How do these differ from the AV shafts that came standard on Epic Flash and Titleist TS?

    The Tensei ck stock shafts and the Tensei ck Pro shafts were completely different animals. These are likely the "2nd gen ck Pro" line utilizing the Aluminum Vaper (AV) material instead of the carbon kevlar (ck) in the handle section.

    They're related in that they will possess similar materials and bend/launch/spin concept will be the same as the stock AV shafts, much like the original ck line were, but there will be more and/or additional (Boron, MR 70) more expensive materials throughout the AV TX (AV PRO) shafts for better feel and performance.

    I have the tour version av blue in all black. It feels amazing and the all black looks much better than this, and the blue weaving is subtle but noticeable so it it looks very cool.

    I have a feeling that the Orange might be tricky with this AV design. It is a different beast within the CK Pro line as Tungsten was added to the handle prepreg for the purpose of counterbalancing the shaft while maintaining a soft butt section with a smaller diameter. Either they will be able to do the same thing with a hypothetical AV Orange, find another way to accomplish the same goal, or it will be a different design altogether.

    That is just speculation on my part though, but I find it surprising that with the popularity of the Tensei Orange shafts that an AV Orange wasn't right out front, hence the idea that it might be more difficult.

    There was a video on IG of the White today but didn't quite pan down to the tip to see if MR70 or Boron was written on there. Seems like a lot of guys trying the White AV 85 TX guesing it would be a good fairway wood part.
