Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black HBP 2nd Gen Wood Shafts

KURO KAGE™ Black Second Generation: Like the original KURO KAGE™ Black, the Second Generation KURO KAGE™ Black features a smooth bend profile, with a softer mid-section balanced by a slightly stiffer tip and butt-section, with an all new higher balance point. Our High Density Prepreg continues to be used in the lower third of the shaft, for enhanced feel, stability and strength. Using High Density Prepreg also allows us to raise the balance point, to give you greater speed.

replacing a shaft in a Ping 2010 G15 13.5* driver to orginal spec 3B2S R flex.  my SS is 85-90. what are my options?

Asked by: Larry
The stock shaft in the Ping G15 was a low 50 gram weight shaft. It was also a .350" tip diameter so you will have to use the BB9048 Ping Adapter and the .335" size to shim a .335" shaft into the .350" hosel bore. A few shaft option would be the new Aldila AldaLite (AL0055) and the Graphite Design G Series 40 (GD0027). I would also look at the Xcaliber Tour SL (AS0026). Even though it is a 3B2M it is a shaft that can still work and match well.

I have a 1995 Ping Eye 2plus set of irons ( graphite ) If a shaft is replaced and it has to be tapered by hand, will this weaken it substantially?

Asked by: Dave
There is always liability in doing this. It is not a service we offer at The GolfWorks so it comes down to what liability you are willing to accept if you do it.

Hi! I'm stuck between regular and stiff flex with my 90-95 mph swing speed. Can you tip trim the regular Kuro Kage Black 3/4 to 1", to achieve a regular+/stiff- flex?

Asked by: KSW
Rule of thumb with graphite shafts is that 1" is equal to a change of flex. If you are using this shaft in a driver where the recommended tip trimming for the R or S flex would be 0" you would take the R flex and tip trim 1/2" or what ever amount you feel would work best for you.

Pairing this with my 5 wood, finished length of 42.5". It's a W8 trim, so I'll be cutting 1/2" off the tip and 3" off the butt. I want the finished product to play stiff so should I buy a R shaft since 3-1/2" are being cut? Thank you.

Asked by: WkndWarrior
The W8 code calls for 3/4" tip trim for a 5 wood, then trim to final playing length from the butt. If a Stiff flex is what you need, you can order the stiff and trim per the instructions. it is designed to play to the designated stiffness when trimmed according to the trimming instructions. 42.5" playing length is around about standard for 5 woods.
