Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Shaft Specifications

Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black 2nd Gen Iron Shafts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sand Wedge Test I bought this shaft to try in my sand wedge since I had recently been fitted for a new set of irons with the same shaft. Switching from metal to graphite has made a big difference in my game and I am quite pleased with the results. A slightly different fell from metal, but the adjustment did not take long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price I bought this shaft to replace one that broke when I hit a hidden tree root. The price was right and it shipped very quickly. Due to some medical issues, I haven't been able to play since I repaired the club, but I have no doubt it will perform as well as the OEM shaft that broke.

will these shafts fit TitleistAP1 irons?

Asked by: Swatz
These shafts will not fit Titleist AP1 irons. Titleist shows they are .355" the shafts you are looking at are .370" which makes them too big. You may want to look at: # AS0028 # MR0067 # US0085 # US0087 # US0088 # AT0019I # AT0015I # AT0017I

Can these "A" shafts be soft stepped to an "L" or "LL".

Asked by: jrob
With graphite shafts generally 1" is equal to a change of flex. Depending on your set make up you could probably soft step the A flex to play more like an L but not likely you will be able to take it to a LL flex.

Compare to NS Pro 950 GH, which one have lower trajectory?

Asked by: Adi
The trajectories from these 2 shafts could be similar according to the specifications. The 950GH is listed as a mid/high trajectory and the Kuro Kage as a mid trajectory shaft. I do find that a lot of players will hit the lighter weight shaft higher and the Kuro Kage shaft is a lighter weight shaft then the 950GH.

Second question. is it wrong to play your irons 5 through say 8 all the same length shaft to keep a more regular swing using the latest KuroKage shafts?

Asked by: SKYHOUND
There is not right or wrong way to configure clubs, but there is conventional and non conventional. Also, there is always a trade off in what ever adjustments you make to to golf clubs, especially if you go from a conventional configuration to a non conventional one, like you describe. Head weights progress by 7 grams as you move through a set, with the 5 being 7 grams lighter than the 6 iron, the 6 is seven grams lighter than the 7 and so on. if you make the 5 through the 8 all the same length, the clubs feel and swing weight will get progressively heavier as you move towards the 8 iron. Also, even though the lofts progress by approx. 4 degrees from club to club, you will loose some of the distance gap between clubs because the length of a club accounts for some of the distance gaps. If you make them all 5 iron length, for instance, you may hit the 6,7,8 irons longer than normal. If you make them all 8 iron length, you will hit the 5,6,7 iron a little shorter. You also may not hit the short irons as accurate if they are longer than the conventional specification, just as you might hit the longer irons more accurate at a shorter than conventional length. My only suggestion is that if you think a non conventional length progression might be beneficial, your just going to have to experiment.

I have a AP1s that are  8 years old.  I am 66 - 6'-4" with a 18 handicap. I hit my 7 iron 150 yds but not accurate.  I have a friend that just bout the new AP1 model set with the Kuro Kage 65g s flex that recommends them.   What wo you recommend for me!  

Asked by: SKYHOUND
I don't know what shafts you are currently playing, but odds are they are significantly heavier than the Kuro Kage 65 g shafts that are in your friends irons. I might suggest you try and hit your friends iron just to see how they feel. If they do not feel too light, there can be some advantages of playing with a lighter overall weight club, one being increased clubhead speed resulting in some distance improvement. That being said, 150 yards with a 7 iron is OK and you might want to look at a slightly heavier shaft for more control. Very difficult to make a specific recommendation without actually seeing you hit shots. A suggestion would be to find a qualified fitter in your area, or at least find a facility that has options you can try.

need .355 for titleist ap2 4 iron?

Asked by: brad
The Titleist AP2 irons use a .355" taper tip shaft. The Kuro Kage Black 2nd Gen Iron shaft is only available in a .370" parallel tip version. If your Titleist irons came stock with this shaft it was likely made especially for Titleist with a .355" taper tip and you would have to send the club back to Titleist to be reshafted.

I have a set of Callaway XR 2015 irons "R". I hit my 7 iron 140 average. My old set 7iron 150. I would like to change my shafts. What would be the best shaft to replace? I hit a high ball. AGE 74.

Asked by: Rod
In making recommendations it would help to know what shaft is in your Callaway XR irons and even what shafts were in your previous set of irons. If you are switching from a steel to graphite shaft the Kuro Kage could work well. It could also help bring your high ball flight down a little bit. Another iron shaft that could work would be the Xcaliber Tour SL graphite (AS0031). It is a little lighter weight then the Kuro Kage but would should produce a similar ball flight.
