Second hand market only place I've found older Miyazaki shafts.

PS...Kusala Black is probably best shaft I've ever played. In a Cleveland Classic 310, probably the longest driver I've ever had.

Which Indigo? Kusala (I assume) or Kosuma?

Kosuma are still available on Rakuten.

LOL, surely you jest.  I like a golf shaft that feels the same the entire length.  No soft butt under the hands stiff tip, etc.  Like it to feel 1 piece the entire swing.  Just a comfort thing with me.  Need all the help I can get!!!

I’ve never played a driver with a Miyazaki shaft but I have eaten Miyazaki beef and it’s unbelievably rich. If the shaft is anything like the beef, it’s probably amazing

Then you definitely want Kusala not Kosuma. Haven't hit mine in a while but Kosuma feels little bit softer in the mid iirc.

There has to be another shaft with the same profile. I remember MGS did a review and I think they said it was very similar feel to one of blue diamana profiles. I'm shocked that Tour AD doesn't have a profile like that.

Maybe next line will go back to that profile?

Well, if you remember which one let me know.  In the MSG review of the kusala indigo, they referenced the kai'li.  The kai'li has a bend profile of 5554 per that article.  Im sure an inch of tipping gets it close.  Look up MSG kusala indigo review, see if thats the one.

That would be the article you're talking about. Kaula Mizu has the same 5554 profile too. Did you try tipping yours?

To be honest I liked Black more too in a driver. Indigo in 3W was awesome for me though. It's a shame I only have one Indigo 56 R uncut... Anyone interested?!

Softer in the butt vs tip.  Very popular profile...one that absolutely does not work for me.

I havent yet.  I have a fuji atmos black coming to try.  Its tipped .5 inches so its real close to the profile.

Another shaft I thought of was the Diamana BF, which replaced the Kai'li.
