What are these?

http://www.miyazakig...p/kaulapre.html

Seen those in the new 965 series from srixon.  Was a big fan of the kusala line and interested in these.

I really like the look of the Kuala line.  Probably going to be tough to get.

Is the Kosuma line a replacement for the Kusala?  If so, the Kosuma Blue, Black, and Indigo should all be amazing shafts.  

Also interested to see if there is much of a change in technology for their newer stuff...

Yes. I have both Kusala and Kosuma Indigo. Kusala feels better. I don't really see anything in Kuala that would be close...Mizu maybe? But in flex I would play, tip is softer then the rest of the profile. If you look around their site they are using hybrid prepreg which is a mix of 40t and 70t carbon. http://www.miyazakig...id_prepreg.html

They did in US. I'm guessing they found it difficult to get other OEM while being owned by Dunlop/Srixon.

If you can't wait for Kaula, get your Kosuma from here http://global.rakute...ya-kosumabksft/
That's where I got mine. Shipped after 3 days from ordering it (it was on backorder)

Kori shafts are good. They have plenty of feel I find. They launch lower then they feel if that makes sense. I have them in my 765 driver/FW. NIce shaft

Let us know your impressions. I am thinking about picking up mizore but my current driver shaft is pretty darn good so it feels like waste of money to try miyazaki. Did you get them off rak or somewhere else?

Will do. Was looking for stiff Tipped shafts and randomly came across a driver and fw for a deal. Since they're the updated Kusala black profile...

built them yesterday. As its 40* and dropping it might be a minute before I can hit something with them. Will say they feel very smooth but even moreso stable. I was trying to put some a$$ behind the swings and they were staying up with everything i can throw.

I will say, though they are x, they def feel more like a stiff.

OK finally got to the range today. Swing is very rusty from lack of practice,  let alone golf.

Initial thoughts:

I like them. Def have a stiffer tip but didn't seem very low launch. Idk, it's been a minute but the Kusala black seemed lower. Also they are softer to flex. I'm a Def tweeter, and these are Tipped xs and I could move them just fine.

Feel is what one would expect from Miyazaki.. Smooth. Not fubuki smooth, but very good. Much nicer than the hzrdus I was alternating with. Honestly it could have been the profile as this is the low launch version.

Once the swing got uncorked, I was putting some out there. The 8x in the Baffler is gonna be a very good combo once I get her dialed in. The driver, read worst club for me, was not as good initially.. But was starting to get me to the 250 sticks (range balls are rocks)

Can you feel the kick of the shaft?

It's been few months for me also not swinging but I don't remember feeling the kick from Kusala or Kosuma. I could feel Rogue Silver when my buddy let me try his driver and it was messing me up. Felt like my timing was off and I was trying to correct it.

It's not a tour ad di or fubuki kick.. She's pretty stable through out the shaft.

but im very glad i did. It hit 70* today and ive been getting to the range consistently. Was hammering the driver and baffler. I had the hzrdus and rogue black and silver packed as the plan was to rotate. I never even swamped one.


Crazy as I might be the only person playing the koris in america.

I play a kori 6 in my 765. It's a good shaft. Profile is a little weaker in the butt end but picks up stiffness a quater way down. It's not a typical low/low feeling shaft. Feels like it's weaker to flex but plays otherwise

No unfortunately life doesn't allow me to. Play and my ss just couldn't keep up with the tipped x flex. I have ebay set for alerts and hoping to find the 6 and 8 again, just untipped.

I really liked them. (Kori)
