TENSEI Pro White 1K

Happy camper post.  Playing Tensei 1K 60s at 46" in Epic Max LS and i have literally never hit more bombs in my life.  Absolutely blown away by this shaft.  So smooth and stable.  Coming from a ad-xc, the Tensei feels less active with a more subtle kick.  GREAT shaft.

Love the shaft. Cannot emphasize how smooth it feels. 
 

I am playing an untipped X and swing around 105.   A Ventus S flex feels way stiffer to me. 
 

I went to a friends shop and he frequency tested my untipped 50X at 10 cpm more than a Ventus Blue 6S. I couldn’t believe it because the 1K feels way smoother. 
 

So taking into account the frequency it doesn’t surprise me that Ian from txg is now playing an X rather than TX when he swings way harder than me. Granted his is probably tipped.

What swing speed? Recently picked up an Epic Max LS w/im10 60S, considering an untipped 60X playing at 46" (would prefer to play at 45.5"). 105-110mph SS, MCA website says 106+ SS for 60X. This would be my first time trying a X flex shaft. Thoughts appreciated.

Quick question from those of you that have hit this shaft.  I'm getting a killer deal on a 50R, but I normally play 65 stiff (hitting a Tensei Blue right now).  Do you think it's worth trying?  Swing speed is around 100 with a very smooth tempo.  Thanks!

is the 50R tipped at all? you could tip it about an inch and it would feel as 'stiff' if you will as the 65 stiff. 

IF YOU wanted to do that --not that you had to. the 1k is a different shaft than the blue -- and will feel firmer overall. the R flex might not be bad for you to be honest -- also, pay attention to your swingweight as well.

Good call, thank you!  I usually play at 44.5" so I was planning on butt trimming since it's coming without a grip.  Something to think about for sure.

Since I've had more time with the 1k I've come to the conclusion that it launches lower than the Ventus Black and has even less kick.  The mid section just feels super stiff.  It's giving me more ball speed but I may just need to get a 9* head.  I can only hit up on it so much without breaking my back, haha.

I am 105-110 depending on how hard I swing. I'm in the 60x. I hit the 60TX as well. It's got tons of feel so I wouldn't worry about feeling too boardy. It's one of the best feeling shafts I've ever hit. It reminds me of a Speeder Evolution (blue) or DI6 with way more stability than either of those two. I recently came from a Tour AD TP6x  and a VA Nemesys 65/5 (X) - TXG got me. Mine is playing at 45.5". DM me if you wanna have a more detailed discussion.

I just purchased both the 60 and 50 TX. My initial plan is to build them 45" and 46" respectively, prioritizing the 50 out of the temptation of hitting bombs 🙂 . Also, I have Black and Blue shafts in both the Ventus and RDX lines to test the 1K against. Should be fun! 

Really curious to get your comparison of the 1K to the Ventus Blue and Black. My fitter didn't have either Ventus. I hit the RDX blue and the 1K was miles better for me. I also hit the Diamana ZF and hated it.

Does anyone know if the materials are the same in the s and x flex shafts vs the TX? I assume they are but I know in the past they have been different.

Any results yet?  Looking forward to reading about it!

I play the Tensei AV Raw White 65 in X flex 45” in a TSi4 driver. How will the Tensei 1K Pro White compare? I picked the AV Raw White in X as it is a good weight in 69g. Interested in the 1K Pro White in 70X which is 75g.

To me the AV Raw white launches a little higher and spins more.  Felt like it had a little more kick as well.

I actually think it’s fairly user friendly meaning not boardy at all 

Agreed.  I have the 60s and find it more "friendly" than the AV Raw White with my 100-105 SS.  May be due to a few grams less in weight or EI profile?  Works for me.  I'm tempted to try the 50S or X but play at 45".  I go back and forth between the 1k and RDX Blue with my Epic Speed and Mavrik Std.  More kick of course (and a touch more distance) with the RDX Blue but I do like the feel, flight, and dispersion of the 1k.

So I have 1 round and 200 balls with my "TB" 65 TX. I have to say that this is a "firm smooth" shaft if that makes sense? The tip feels a touch looser than my VB 6X but the handle feels firmer to me. I would almost say it feels like a "tighter" Motore F3... When I have a smooth transition it just flat out performs for me but when I get quick it can get a little more squirrely than the VB... The verdict is still up in the air as of now. I could see this being a brilliant fairway shaft for sure. I was hoping for the famous "DI" feel with accuracy and I would say it launches a touch lower, spins less and is more accurate as of now...

the TB is epic in a 3w. just sayin.

I cut down the 65TX and put it in my G425 max and you are spot on. This is the best fairway shaft I have ever played. I ordered the 75tx and I am just waiting to put the tip on it. I know it might sound strange but it plays like my ole 80 Green NV...

i would agree with you with regard to flight window and spin, but the TB to me has more feel while still being as, if not more stable than the NV.

This shaft has brought me back to MCA after 3 years of really being down on their products.  I needed something softer in the handle but still stiff in the tip.  It really feels to me like the Ahina on Steroids.  There is a familiarity but you can tell how beefed it this shaft is.
