Mitsubishi Bassara
Key Feature: A softer bend profile and more moderate torque ratings than the Tour-intended Diamana Series, as well as three different weights to fit a wide range of players.
What We Like: Higher trajectory, higher ballspeed and more distance are the goals that the softer overall bend profile and more torque accomplish.
Who It’s For: Recreational to better players with moderate swing speeds who want the feel and performance of a Tour-quality shaft, but don’t want the extreme stiffness or extremely low torque that often come in the package.
Material: High-modulus graphite
Weight: 63g, 73g, 83g
Torque: 3.6-3.9
Flex Point: Mid
Flexes: X, S, R (L 63g only)

Mitsubishi Diamana White Board
Key Feature: A Tour-quality shaft that provides extreme stability through impact and low-spin characteristics.
What We Like: The entire Diamana Series and Mitsubishi’s ability to provide Tour-caliber products that fit a wide range of golfers. The White Board is the third flex profile in the series and is made to allow players to load the shaft while maximizing tip stability. The Blue Board and Red Board are also solid.
Who It’s For: Players who want the performance of a tip-stiff shaft without sacrificing feel or trajectory.
Material: High-modulus graphite
Weight: 63g, 73g, 83g
Torque: 2.8-3.1
Flex Point: High
Flexes: X, S, R

Mitsubishi Fubuki
Key Feature: The most noteworthy technology used to produce the Fubuki is MDT (Modulus Differential Technology). This combines high-modulus material with more responsive, pitch-based fiber in and above the tip section. The resulting cooperation of the two distinct materials is said to provide significantly enhanced feel and stability throughout the shaft. The result is said to be greater consistency from shaft to shaft.
What We Like: Mitsubishi continues to be a growing force in the composite shaft market, and the company’s MDT is sure to continue the trend.
Who It’s For: The choice of Tour pros and recreational players alike, the Fubuki is typically a better option for more accomplished players.
Material: High-modulus graphite
Weight: 62g-71g
Torque: 3.3-3.7
Flex Point: Mid-High
Flexes: X, S, R

Mitsubishi JAVLNFX
Key Feature: A stable tip section that doesn’t compromise responsiveness or feel. Unlike many shafts engineered with a tip section meant to stabilize the shaft throughout the swing, the JAVLNFX doesn’t require an extremely aggressive swing profile to provide outstanding performance.
What We Like: Another product from Mitsubishi Rayon that’s built with premium-quality materials and processes, but can be enjoyed by players who don’t necessarily have Tour-like swings.
Who It’s For: Recreational to better players who require a more responsive tip action to achieve optimal performance.
Weight: 61g-81g
Torque: 3.8-4.3
Flex Point: Mid-High
Flexes: X, S, R
