Tensei 1K Hybrid


Honman

Recommended Posts

I've been able to find almost nothing on this shaft, and only stumbled across it by accident on the new Mitsubiushi site. Has anyone got any experience with it?

 

Got fit into new Titleist irons recently, with SteelFiber 95 s, but was put into the HZRDS Black in the U505 4, which felt so dead in comparison. So just looking for something around that weight with more feel. Currently playing Ventus Blue 7S in two Ping G430 hybrids which I like but don't love.

Also interested. Its a stock shaft for the new TSR range. I am intrigued by the Tensei 1k Black Hybrid 95, X flex... Looking for something in the 100g+ category that doesnt go left on me...

 

I might get try the Tensei 1k Black 75, X flex in a fairway wood and will let you know how that goes!

No this is a different shaft to the 1k black hybrid, it's got a silver band.

I am waiting for a TSR3 to arrive with the Tensei 1K Black in. I had a fitting earlier in the year, the fitter only had the 1K and the HZRDUS black shaft to try. The Tensei is in that smoother feeling shaft option, but is still fairly low launch and spin. I got to test it on the course a few weeks back and it lived up to expectations. 

 

I had a Ping G425 hybrid, I tried with a Tour AD DI and the Rogue Black with it. Never been a Ping fan, the look and the sounds has always been a bit off putting. The head on the G425 is massive and it looks just looks to have loads of loft on it (4H). 

 

I also have a 3 wood with the Tensei 1K black in, which is great.

Tensei 1K PRO Hybrid

TENSEITM 1K Pro Hybrid is a product born from the success of TENSEI 1K Pro Wood shafts. Golfers gravitated towards the stability and feel they found in 1K Pro Wood shafts, so Mitsubishi began to develop a product to allow golfers to carry this feel from their woods into their hybrids.

Instead of creating hybrid structures for each individual color of the TENSEI 1K Pro Wood line, Mitsubishi engineers took the best bits of all colors to unify under a singular, mid-launch, mid-spin TENSEI 1K Pro Hybrid structure and used a silver band.

TENSEI 1K Pro Hybrid takes learnings from all Mitsubishi previous TENSEI hybrid shafts, but perhaps none more than Mitsubishis very popular CK Pro Orange Hybrid shaft. TENSEI 1K Pro Hybrid features a counterbalanced structure to create more ball speed and higher launch, but also incorporates super-premium 1K carbon fiber into the handle section, creating a smoother feel and more stability. This also leads to less imperfection in the shaft for more consistent performance.

 Features:

- Mid launch mid spin

- 1K Carbon Fiber

- Counterbalanced Design

I'd recommend the Ventus Black HB 10TX.   I have the 9TX and it's the most anti-left hybrid shaft I've ever gamed/tested.  The 1K Black/hybrid  is pretty anti-left and good alternative as well but lacks feel compared to the VB HB in TX flex, IMO.

 Have a TSR3 3 wood, and TSR3 hybrid with the Tensei 1K Black , great shaft with smooth feel. Great dispersion and not boardy.

Considering a 5 wood with same shaft to complete upper end of bag upgrade.

I have been gaming this 1k Pro Hybrid (Silver) in my TSR3 3H since October of 2023. It is really hard to describe the shaft. I would classify it as a Med Butt, Med Tip, and Very Stiff Mid. It holds up stability when swinging, but you can feel the clubhead in your hands. At contact, it has a whip like effect from the medium stiff tip. I swing my hybrid around 90 mph and play it in 80 Stiff and it works just fine for my Tempo + SS.
