    I believe it was the new i20. Greg snapped a pic and created a thread if I'm not mistaken.

    Does that really say $720? That is a hefty price tag.

    Yes it really says 720.00 but I belive on a previous thread someone said you could get them for 699.00 Not sure if that helps any or not. This is why I passed on the shaft, I dont get them to try like RIckie.

    That's true. Wouldn't it be nice to have a $700 shaft sent to you in the hopes that you like it so they could send you more! I have no problem with something being worth the money. If this shaft is legendary and out performs everything on the market at $300-$400 then more power to Mitsubishi. If it is just decent or stacks up to the premium $300 shafts then this shaft has bust written all over it (that is if it is produced in large numbers). Is it going to be a limited shaft? Or will it be a retail option like most other Diamanas?

    Very nice looking shaft! <br />

    I´m loving my kai'li and played the Fubuki for quite some time. The guys at Mitsubishi really know what they are doing.

    Limited. Only 5000 total shafts world wide with something like 4000 of them for the Asian market only.

    Mitsubishi Rayon is THE ONLY COMPANY,who manufactures every single component of the shaft from the resin to the carbon fiber sheets. They are tough to beat. Fantastic products.

    the specs look pretty **** close to the RIP alpha, slightly lower torque. I'm sure these will be MUCH smoother and better feeling, but for almost 4x the price I'm not sure even I can justify that

    WOW. 2.2 for torque is pretty **** low. I think the Whiteboard in an X-stiff is 2.8.

    This has the same problem that most graphite manufacturers have: no heavy options. To not have an 80g weight class is bad enough. What's worse for Mitsubishi is that they haven't made a 100g shaft since the Diamana Blueboard.<br />
    <br />
    How about some heavy shafts? Not all of us are anemic stickboys that get tired swinging shafts heavier than 70g.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Is that a comment in general or about this specific shaft?<br />
    <br />
    If in general, then I agree. If it's about this one, then not so much. They've already limited their market due to the materials and price, no need to limit their market even further by making it that heavy. Plus it's mostly meant for the JDM market where shafts of that weight are even more rare then they are across the pond here.<br />
    <br />
    I need to put some more time into mine, but I quite like it so far.

    It is. That's the shaft I have coming in an X Hot Pro 16* hybrid. It's still on backorder from Callaway, so I haven't received it yet, but I got the 93g D+ X-flex in it. I had never had so much confidence in hitting a hybrid full bore without fear of it going left. Can't wait to put it in the bag for real.<br />
    <br />
    Even though many people haven't hit the Pro hybrids yet, and even with all the hype around the X Hot Pro fairway woods (which are really, really good) I still think the Pro hybrids are the sleepers Callaway has this year.

    Good news, I was thinking the 102g x in a 18* 913Hd or an 18* 913Fd with v2 96x... Will go try both out next month when they arrive at fitting centers.
