This post is listing (2) very good condition shafts. Specs and original receipt are attached in the pictures. They were purchased new from Club Champion in Philadelphia and used only by me since the purchase. The shafts were purchased separately from the driver head and they are NOT "Made for TaylorMade" shafts. (1) Driver shaft - Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Tour TiNi 70 gram X flex (very good condition). SST Pured. Includes Golf Pride VDR grip in fair condition. Includes TaylorMade tip installed (compatibility not guaranteed). Willing to include TaylorMade SLDR driver head with the sale. The head is in good condition but there is no guarantee on the head. Sale price - $50 OBO plus shipping from Philadelphia area. (1) 3 Wood shaft - Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black 70 gram X flex (very good condition). SST Pured. Includes Golf Pride VDR grip in good condition. Includes TaylorMade tip installed (compatibility not guaranteed). Willing to include TaylorMade Rocketballz Stage 2 3-wood head with the sale. The head is in good condition but there is no guarantee on the head. Sale price - $40 OBO plus shipping from Philadelphia. Contact me with any questions. I will make my best effort to minimize the size of the box for shipping. Local pickup in the Philadelphia area available.
I've tried doing some research on the Kuro Kage Proto TiNi 2013 shaft, but there isn't a lot of literature out there on it. I was fit in 2014 by Club Champion for the 70X version of the KK Proto shaft (before TiNi was added to other Kuro Kage shafts) in a 10.5-11* driver head. As far as I understand, it's a relatively rare and exclusive shaft, which seemed cool at first but honestly just makes it harder to find replacements. I believe it's much closer to the Kuro Kage Black profile with more of a mid launch, mid/low spin as compared to the ubiquitous low launch/low spin Kuro Kage Silver, which I see everywhere for sale. Due to a negative angle of attack and I guess just my general swing, I've found I can't elevate low/low shafts (like the Whiteboard, Kiyoshi Black, etc...) for the life of me, plus they feel like rebar to me. For reference, I fit 2nd and 3rd best into the Fubuki K 70X and Kiyoshi Purple 65X, but not nearly as well as the KK Proto 70X. In casual self-fitting, I've also hit other mid shafts like the old Motore F3, UST Axivcore Red (counter-balanced), and Diamana S+ fairly well. For irons, I've had success with Nippon Modus 120X, KBS Tour X, and even the DG S300. Project X feels terrible to me, and I struggle to elevate the DG X100 in long irons. I swing decently hard, but nothing crazy. Driver swing speed is about 115-120mph, and I think I have a fairly normal tempo and transition (so I probably won't be able to load a super stable/boardy shaft). Not sure if there's anyone out there with similar launch characteristics and/or experience with the KK Proto. Suggestions would be helpful, as it's been extremely difficult to find any other copies of the shaft for backup/testing. Or if anyone by chance happens to be trying to offload one, that would be a fantastic coincidence too.
