I think it is just a label they have added to the V3, do not think anything different.

I guess we did good detective work at the TPC last week....

More Tensei Orange demand ....

It seems like these will sell for whatever is asked for on BST.  "$300 for a used shaft?  Sure ... I'll take it."

That said -- maybe it is psychological -- but they are great shafts.

Does Sergio read English well? I only ask because he speaks it very well, but having lived in a foreign country I know from experience that speaking a language well and reading it well can be two completely different things.

That is awesome Greg, thanks for sharing.

I am a bit of a "freak" fan of Sergio, been there since the beginning, a lot of tough moments over the years for that dude, but looks to be in a great place in his life.

I try not to miss much with him.

The Tensei Pro Orange seems to be the hot shaft on tour.

It definitely is!  No need to counterbalance,as this shaft will give you approximately 3 swing weights lighter than other shafts. However,it's counterbalancing effect is due to the multi material construction and Carbon Fiber Dupont Kevlar that is wound into the butt section of the shaft. It is not popular due to the counter balancing effect of the shaft,but due to the multi material design,and the stiff tip which is ideal for a hard swinger/and/or/hitter. . Quite an interesting combination. For someone who likes counterbalancing to begin with,it's a plus! The only way this thing goes left is if your whole body does. ***Forgot to add the Tungsten Powder and the MR 70!!

Just curious, I got a CK pro orange (V3 I think) 3 weeks ago, but it does not have that "Tungsten" label. Is it expected?

The Tungsten label is only brand new, and not sure. The V3 is the same as the aftermarket - I really want to try it sometime. Would be an interesting comparison to my X-Torsion Copper.

Same shaft as non-tungsten labelled shafts.. they just added that logo to the nearer production models. Read somewhere in here that the tungsten powder is used in the butt end of the shaft for the counterbalancing.

Yes.  He plays some crazy light swing weight of like C1-C3 (or around there).  So he always has to add weights in the butt of the shafts to achieve that.
