Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver w/Tini 2nd Gen Wood Shafts

The Second Generation KURO KAGE™ Silver Wood Series will feature the same Profile and High Density Prepreg as the original KURO KAGE™ Silver shafts, but with the addition of TiNi wire in the tip section. The result is a series of shafts that will deliver the lower launch and lower spin of the original KURO KAGE™ Silver profile, but with added stability and increased energy release through the impact zone, adding explosive power to the signature, KURO KAGE™ Silver profile.

Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Shaft Specifications

Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver w/Tini 2nd Gen Wood Shafts is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too low launch for me... I have this shaft as a custom option on my Vokey SM6 wedges, love the lower launch of those. But must say, couldn't handle this shaft with the M1 driver, the mid launch option by Taylor Made. My swing speed is low 90s, found I actually lost distance with this on the M1, went back to the Fujikura Pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality at a good pice Put this shaft in my own driver and have found it to be every bit as good or better than an old white board shaft I used

Compared to the Grafalloy ProLaunch Red, will I see significant change in ball flight and spin? I typically have way too high of a launch with too much spin which limits my distance. I have the ProLaunch Red and am wondering if it is worth change?

Asked by: dsg
The Grafalloy ProLaunch Red is designed to produce a low ball flight and has a very stiff tip section to help create this low ball flight. The Kuro Kage Silver is designed to create a low/mid ball flight. I would expect that you would see similar results. High launch an high spin can be caused by hitting down on the ball through impact and this shaft change would likely not change that results.

I have a 10.5 degree driver at the moment, and tend to hit it higher. If i purchase the m1 with this shaft also in 10.5 degrees could i expect a lower ball flight?

Asked by: Omiller
the MR0042 Kuro Kage Silver with TiNi 2nd Gen shaft is classified as a low/mid trajectory shaft. Without knowing what shaft you currently play, it is difficult to know if the shaft will make a difference in the trajectory. If the shaft you are playing is a high trajectory shaft, then you might see a small differnce. Generally, shafts of the same flex but different bend profiles have a minor effect on the trajectory. Loft is the main factor in trajectory and you might consider reducing the loft to lower your trajectory. Overall shaft flex and bend profile can have an effect, but not as much as loft.

Currently play a Tour Ad Di6 i have hit this shaft and am curious as to if it will perform better as a Stiff or if tipped it will play similar. My DI6 is starting to show signs of age and looking to order as part of a stock option

Asked by: izzy973
The Kuro Kage Silver w/TiNi is an over all stiffer shaft Stiff flex compared to stiff flex with the Tour AD DI 6. The Kuro Kage Silver is designed to produce a low/mid trajectory and the Tour AD DI 6 a high trajectory. If the specifications of the Kuro Kage fit you better then the Tour AD DI 6 then it will perform better for you but these designs are quite a a bit different from each other.

I'm wanting to know if I should use Kuro Kage blk or silver. I hit a high ball and I'm replacing the stock shaft on a new Callaway fusion 9deg driver. I want a lower traj. My Swing speed avg 95 . Witch shaft is best for distance and control?

Asked by: Pete3333
Between the Silver and Black the Silver is designed to produce the lower ball flight.

We do not stock the Kuro Kage Silver (MR0042) in 50 grams. We should be able to special order the shaft for you. You would need to contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-848-8358 or by email at

Is this a parallel butt or taper design?  Curious because of butt size / grip install?

Asked by: JWY
The Kuro Kage shafts do have a parallel butt section. They do not taper right away like the Aldila NV and some of the other Aldila shafts.

Will the Kuro Kage silver 60 R-Flex TiNi play similar to my Aldila RIP Phenom 55?

Asked by: Golferman25
The RIP Phenom is noticeably lighter, approximately 17 grams lighter, and is stiffer in the tip section then the Kuro Kage. The Kuro Kage has a higher balance point. To me the weight would be the biggest and most noticeable difference in these two shafts.

Will the KuroKage Silver TiNi "S" flex be similar to my TaylorMade M.A.S 2, "S", 5.55, mid torque, soft tip shaft?

Asked by: dpb449
I would expect the Kuro Kage Silver TiNi "S" flex will play a little stiffer then the Taylor Made M.A,S 2 "S" flex shaft. Most of the stock manufactures shafts tend to play a little more flexible then normal. The soft tip on the Taylor Made shaft would be for a higher ball flight and the Kuro Kage is designed for more of a low/mid ball flight. The original Kuro Kage Silver would likely be a better match (MR0036)
