Can anyone compare Tensei White and Tensei Pro?  Trying to determine if the Pro is worth the difference in cost.  Currently gaming regular version of Tensei Blue in X but looking to lower spin and get the impression White might accomplish that.  Thanks for the input and thoughts

The difference between the Pro and non Pro shafts is all about the tip section. All of the Pro versions have the reinforced Boron tip (MR70 for the Pro Orange I believe) and will be significantly lower spinning and more stable than their non Pro counterparts. For all intents and purposes you can think of the non Pro shafts as the "Made for" versions in terms of how they play; whippier and higher spinning. Unless you need more spin or have a below average swing speed then the Pros are likely a better investment.

Perfect!  Thank you.  Not a "made for" guy so the Pro will be a better match.  Really appreciate the response

Cheers! The Pro Tensei shafts are incredible, just make sure to take the time to find a profile that suits your swing and you're set for life.

So can anyone chime in on White Pro vs Orange Pro?  On the Mitsubishi website both are listed as low spin while the Blue is listed as mid

You'll find some comparisons in that link I posted. The general idea is that the Pro Orange is a counter balanced version of the Pro White with a different, stronger tip section. The idea behind counter balancing in my experience anyway is generally to move weight away from the head and towards the handle, thus decreasing Swing Weight. You can then add weight back to the head to maintain the same feel you had before and now you have higher MOI without it really feeling any heavier, assuming you don't add the weight right behind the face of the driver. This leads to, all things being equal, increased average ball speed. The stronger tip section of the Pro Orange I suspect was to handle that weight that is often added to the head to with a counter balanced shaft and maintain its low launch, low spin characteristics, and also to help further differentiate it from the Pro White. Previous prototype versions of the Orange did NOT have this different tip section.

In response to the Pro Orange vs the  Pro White, I have both and they don't play remotely similar for me at least. I had much better results with the Pro Orange; while the Pro White is a great shaft, it does play differently. I had more inconsistent results with the White when taking an aggressive swing; the Pro Orange seems to handle aggressive swings better. It could be the firmer tip. If you want a barely used Pro White let me know, as, it's not getting much use sitting in my closet. I keep meaning to list it, just haven't made time to do it.

Pro series is made with higher modulous carbon, a longer Kevlar butt section and a boron reinforced tip. It will launch and spin measurably lower than non pro.
