    Is this the same exact shaft with updated graphics? I assume MCA didn't want to miss the opportunity to cash in on the continued play of this shaft by top players/names.

    Japanese site claims they are now using 80t Pitch Fibers at the butt of the shaft.

    Weight specs are VERY similar to the OG Series.

    It's clearly not just a repaint, but I would expect a VERY similar profile & launch across the line to the originals.

    I'd game one! Would like to see more details, but the OG is gold standard.

    Very subtle change to the graphics I like it.

    Interestign to hear if this is new or not, if it has better materials and same performance then I think it will be a home run for the guys using it on tour.

    If it's anything like the D+ that Tiger, Brooks, Lowry and Casey use, that thing is no joke, despite it's age..... I bought one for fun (as an old Whiteboard player) and took it out at the end of the year just to give it a spin. Maybe it was the care-free factor but I was absolutely nuking it. It might be old generation but there is nothing old about how it performs. And, as others said, it could be updated a bit.....

    The D+ Limited was the improved version of the Whiteboard which has consistency issues. It flew under the radar and at one point you could get them for like $100 on ebay. But Tiger started using it and prices jumped through the roof. Funny how that works haha.

    It was also stock in Titleist woods in the normal flexes so thats why there were so many, however the TX flexes were always a little different and were always an upcharge. Not the same shafts IMO, interested to hear more on this one

    There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with the S or X flex's D+ LTD's they are about the best stock "Made For" shaft Mitsubishi ever made. Light years better than the made for tensei's or AV line of last year. Once again though all we have are people "telling us" the TX's have better materials etc etc.....Mitsubishi has never confirmed any of this....

    Never said there was anything wrong with them just said the reason the price was lower on them on the secondary was because it was a stock shaft and there were so many of them out there.

    Also right off the MRC website they state that there could be material differences in the TX flex. Hence the extra upcharge.

    No 90 gram option? The current D+ limited has a 90 TX and with heavier FWs being popular maybe we’ll even see a 100 on tour like the original Diamanas.

    I’ve had great experiences with just about every iteration of this shaft. The latest D+ has been a fixture in my fairway slot, and it’s kind of been my familiar friend in the driver. No matter how much the turnstile churns with the latest and greatest, some version of this shaft always seems to find its way into the top end of the bag. I am am really looking forward to trying one of these; I’m interested to hear if this shaft is an actual improvement, or just a new paint job.

    Was the titleist OEM as good as the original? How do you tell them apart?

    The D+ TX through Titleist was such a good value. If I remember correctly it was like a $30-$50 upcharge.

    IIRC there is a weight difference - where the 'made for' models were 62g, 72g, 82g, etc and the OEM was 60/70/80? Something like that

    Makes sense if they're similar to the original D (flowerband) specs considering its uses"D" and not the "D+" its been using. I'm guessing this is the next line since the TM website has a "S limited" shaft option in their custom menu . Here are there original flowerband specs if anyone is interested.

    $500? Seriously? I better pick up D+PLUS before this new shaft launches.

    This is a phenomenal shaft... kudos to the Mitsu guys for keeping this under wraps! I had the D+ Limited (the one that released before this in limited flexes) in play at THEIR scramble event at the PGA Show. Naturally, I asked if they were going to keep making it and they said "no" and didn't so much as even give me a wink...total poker face! haha.

    So, pretty fun to see this surprise! I mean, it's a no brainer, really.... at the presentation they dropped the stat that this shaft has won SIX MAJORS in two years. Ummm.....that's INSANE. And, yes, I know several of those were Brooks (same player). But, still. That's nuts.... Tiger, Lowry, Brooks, Casey, Justin Rose had it back in at Torrey. I think the guy who won overseas this week has it in his driver, too?

    Glad this is sticking around and that the 60 TX didn't change at all! That saves me from buying the new one. I actually don't find it as insanely low as WBs used to be.... I actually had to tip it 1/2 inch and I top out at about 110 SS. It's very comfortable for me to load at that build and I could game it for years.

    If it ain't broke.....

    Good job, Mitsu! (clap clap clap)

    Is there any difference between this one and the old limited? Looks like the exact same bend profile, but some of the weights are slightly different.

    Here’s the EI Chart. Compared to DF, the D Ltd looks to have a stiffer butt section, firmer mid section and a hair firmer tip. The EI Chart makes the D Ltd look like it has more pronounced hinges or bend points.
