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 6.
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

I have always bought my drivers from sporting goods stores so I am new to buying golf clubs in different pieces. If I order this Kurt kage shaft and a driver head to match it can i just take it down to my local golf guy and have him piece it together?

Asked by: Brian
Yes you could take the Kuro Kage shaft and clubhead to your local guy and he should be able to assemble it for you or tell you if it can be properly installed in the driver head you have.

I have a Rocketballz driver. It has the adapter, but am I #1. I limited to the  .350 shafts with the orig. adapter? and #2. do any other shafts require me to buy the BB9065, replacing the original adapter? Thanks again.

Asked by: Ted
1. With the original adaptor you should be able to use the BB9018 Universal Plastic Adaptor to install a .335" tip size shaft. 2. For the RBZ driver you need the TM0017 adaptor not the BB9065. The BB9065 is for the RBZ Stage 2 driver.

I have a 14 handicap with a swing speed about 80. I use a big bertha 10 degree . What would be a good shaft to go to?

Asked by: Vinny
Without knowing what your looking for specifically with trajectory, it is difficult to be too precise in a recommendation, however, the Kuro Kage Black MR0044 in either the 50 or 60 gram options could be a good choice. It is a mid trajectory shaft. If distance is the main goal, you want to go with the lightest option you can while still maintaining the feel you want. For your swing speed, an R flex should work well. If you are looking for a higher trajectory, the ProForce Axivcore Blue 59 in the R flex could be a good choice.

Date published: 2017-06-16 to purchase this shaft for my Mizuno JPX 850 3-wood and 5-wood. Can you cut these to length before shipping? What flex would you recommend? I am a 12-handicap with a 100 mph swing speed for my 3-Wood. Thanks!

Asked by: Ivo
Thanks Jim.....I have ordered two shafts with grips and sent an email to request that the shaft are trimmed and grips (medium plus 2-tapes) be put on before shipping. Be great if you could follow-up and check that email was received.

I'm 76 with a swing speed of 90-95 mph. Would like to reshaft a Ping G15 9deg driver. I have a high ball flight with a10deg G15 reg shaft..  Thinking a reg shaft would be best. Recommendation? Thanks. 

Asked by: Ronnie
90 to 95 mph puts you into the high end of an R flex and low end of an S flex. An R flex should work well especially if you have a smooth swing tempo.

I would you buy this shaft but i need know if you can give me the right side to spine allignament, i'm lefty.

Asked by: rikphil
We offer SST Puring for golf shafts. You would check the Puring box and then check if you are right or left handed. When you receive the shaft from us it will have a label near the tip end of the shaft with a line on the label. You install the shaft with label on top and it will have the "spine" in the correct position for you (left handed).

Is this shaft for a driver or for hybrids?

Asked by: Jack66
The MR0044 is for drivers and fairway woods unless you have a hybrid that uses a .335" tip size shaft. The MR0045 is for Hybrids.
