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 9.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied After building myself a KE4 2 driver with an A flex shaft my swing speed increased to the point of needing a stiffer shaft the KuroKage straighten out my drives and took the whip out of my swing thanks

Hi - Curious about the playing charactics of this shaft VS Proforce V5? I have the V5 in my Maltby KE4-ST 2 driver and love it looking for a 3 or 5 wood to go with it Thanks

Asked by: Drowe2817
The Kuro Kage Black HBP 60 tests stiffer in the butt and middle section of the shaft compared to the V5 65 gram weight shaft. Both shafts have similar tip stiffnesses. The Kuro Kage also has a higher balance point which is done a lot with modern shafts to accomadate longer length drivers without the swingweight getting to high. It will have a different feel then the V5.

Would you recommend this shaft for the M1 Driver? I was thinking of changing my regular flex to stiff (65g)

Asked by: dleegal
The Kuro Kage Black HBP 2nd Gen shaft can match well with the M1 driver. If the shaft specifications fit you it can be a good match.

Can I order this with a tip for a 2014 Callaway Big Bertha driver and a standard Tour Velvet grip in standard length? Please let me know. Thank you!

Asked by: Will
Yes you can order the shaft tip adapter (CA0020) and we can install it for you. We can cut the shaft for your finished length and install a Tour Velvet grip. We can do all of this for you.

I have the Diamana S+ Regular 60g shaft in 915 D2 driver. Considering the Kuro Kage Black HBP 2nd Gen Regular 65g shafts for 4 and 7 woods instead of paying price for Diamana S+. Would the Kuto Kage be a good match for fairways?

Asked by: DWP
The HBP should make a good match in your fairway woods. The HBP does have a little higher balance point but our profile testing shows the shafts to have similar bend profiles.

How much difference is there between the original Kuro Kage Black, circa 2012 - 2013 and the 2nd Gen HBP as far as location of balance point? Thanks

Asked by: jjohnss
The HBP balance point is approximately 1/2" higher then the original Black.
