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.

Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Shaft Specifications

Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black HBP 2nd Gen Wood Shafts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feeling shaft with fantastic performance Purchased the Stiff flex. Put a Callaway Optifit tip on, with no tip trim, and am using it in a Callaway Alpha 815 driver. This Kuro Kage feels very smooth. It is not boardy but not whippy either - just right for me. I get good distance and a tight dispersion. I have used Aldila Tour Rogue S , and Fujikura Speeder 767 S with this head. The Rogue is a little too stiff, and the Speeder is a little too whippy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shaft Mated this puppy to my Titleist 913F. Great performance for the price. Cut it short to 42.25" on my 12 degree head. I am suddenly able to hit my driver after hitting 3 wood off the tee with the exact same shaft all last season. The previous stock basará shaft was boardy with a low ball flight. I couldn't control it nor did it have the feel I enjoy. The kuro hbp changed all that with a piercing medium to high trajectory while creating fantastic confidence inspiring performance. I've found fairways and not drifted excessively right with my natural left to right fade. I would say this shaft is better suited for players who like to feel the shaft loading through the swing with a spring like unloading at impact. The soft tipped nature allows it to play on the softer r+ side of the stiffness matrix in the stiff flex. Very happy with my purchase and the butt and tip prep provided by golf works.

Hi...I want to change my shafts in 2 drivers. Slowing down so the regular shafts have to go. What do you suggest for a Cobra XL Baffler - the latest version before the "Fly"-and also for a Tour Edge Xrail? Don't want to spend more than $60 each.

Asked by: BubbaPi
The Kuro Kage Black HBP 2nd Gen (MR0044) could work well in both of these drivers. You could also look at the Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue 45 (TT0106) or 65 (TT0107). Both could work well and the 45 gram version give you a lighter weight option. The Aldila NVS 55/65 (AL202202) could be another good option.

Asked by: ken626
You can install a .335" tip size shaft using a SHIM 15 or the Universal Plastic Shim (BB9018) Both work well for this shaft installation.

looking to replace the stock shaft from TM Burner Superfast 10.5 (Stiff) I have a 18 handicap don't know swing speed - hit a 6 iron 150 yards. high ball flight with driver, little carry and often slice unless swing hard -is  this a good recommendation (R)

Asked by: Fore
The Kuro Kage (MR0044) in an R flex could be a good choice. It is designed to create a mid trajectory which could help lower your ball flight a little bit compared to the stock shaft in the Superfast. The Burner Superfast does use a .350" tip size shaft so you will need to shim the .335" tip Kuro Kage shaft to fit this driver. You could use the SHIM 15 or the Universal Plastic Shim (BB9018) for this installation.

Reshafting a Callaway XHOT 9.5 and want a playing length of 44.50". Would like to maintain a D3 SW. Swing Speed = 92 mph. Grip = GP New Decade Multi-Compound Plus 4 Midsize. Is this shaft in stiff (67g) a good match? Other shaft options that may work ?

Asked by: Todd
The Kuro Kage Black HBP (High Balance Point) is a high balance point shaft and it could lighten the swingweight 1 to 2 swingweights compared to the current shaft. The current shaft could also be a high balance point shaft, which is common for many driver shafts these days, which would keep the swingweights similar. The stock Project X shaft listed for the X Hot was a mid 50 gram weight shaft and a 9 gram change of shaft weight is equal to 1 swingweight so this heavier shaft could add a swingweight. The Kuro Kage Black HBP is a good shaft and could match well with the X Hot driver.

Can the Euro Page black shaft in an A Flex be supplied for a Taylor Made M2 driver?

Asked by: Jocko56
If you mean the Kuro Kage Black A flex, yes it can set it up for a Taylor Made M2 driver. The shaft adaptor TM0024 would have to be ordered separately and we can install it to your specifications.
