I had this in an R11 in a stiff flex, my swing speed is around 95 and I thought this shaft was pretty boardy for me.  There were moments where I got the swing speed up enough and produced a beautiful ball, but more often than not it felt like I was swiging a 2X4 and produced a weak cut shot.  This is probably alot more to do with my swing than the shaft, but I do know the Mitsubishi chart advises a stiff ahina for my swing speed, I think it is wise to course test this out if you have a below 100 swing speed before making the purchase.  My opinion is if you have below 100 ss, the Kaili is the route to go in this lineup.

Ahina is definitely not for 95 SS.  with 95SS you need launch and spin...2 things the Ahina does not give. The illima is a good for you and would give you more carry and better dispersion not to mention smoothness!

Don't disagree it isn't for me, but based on the 'ahina profile it may be for some with that swing speed:

Never hit the illima, I did hit the kaili and liked it much better

Contrary to popular sentiment, the Ahina is not just a fancier dressed Whiteboard. It feels smoother in transition and produces lower launch and spin. It's very easy to load, hold, and feel your lag, all the way through the ball. Strictly my opinion but for those who say it's boardy, you're playing a flex that's too strong for your swing.

This is a great shaft. I can trust that the club head is going to be where I want it at impact and the shot is going to come off as planned. It feels so solid at impact.

Couldn't agree with this more.  I have an 'ahina 70 S in my 910 D2 and it's a superb shaft.  It takes everything great about the White Board and somehow makes it better.  This shaft in the 910 D2 is giving me great numbers:

102 swing speed
150-155 ball speed
2550 spin
14* launch angle
241 carry
272 total distance

Great shaft and seems to marry up quite well to the 910 heads.  

I also really dig the Kai'li 70 that I have as an alternate shaft for my 910.  The Kai'li is even smoother than the 'ahina with a slightly higher launch and a touch more carry distance.

Ahina 70x in a 910 D3 at 10.5*.  I have it sent at most draw and most loft (12*).    My preferred shape is a baby bleeder and whatever reason this set up helps me do this

I am a 108-110 guy that carries it 270 with really solid launch and spin numbers
Major improvement over the whiteboard for my swing.  I have a violent transition Posted Image

Hitting a ton of fairways and picked up 15 yards this year vs old set ups.  Feel is second to none and worth the premium $$ imo

A lot of guys at my club have gone to 910 drivers this year

Recently too my Rapture v2 with a whiteboard 63x to the range and hit it all over the lot

I have the luxury of taking this shaft in 72X Made for Titleist on the course in my 910 head 9.5* (waiting on the Aldila Rip 70x)... When I caught this right it was nice, but to me it seemed softer than X probably bc of the MFT. My swing speed is 118-120 and I've been playing with an 85g driver earlier in the season so this feels super light and soft compared to my other one. I was getting very high launch and mid spin with this. I caught some bullets with this thing though damn

I just bought a 910 D3 with the MFT Ahina 72x.  Originally I was planning on swapping this out for a Kiyoshi or Graphite Design, but this shaft has been great.  I get penetrating trajectory with 270 carry and a lot of roll; not to mention it is very straight.  Others have said that it can be tipped one inch for a firmer feel, but it's not necessary for me.  Don't sleep on the MFT, I'm hitting it great.

I have the 70x in my razr hawk tour 8.5 and it is the best combination I have ever tried. I have gone through many tm, titleist, and nike drivers.

Yesterday I changed the stock shaft of my TM Burner 08. I always thought I had a super high flight, so I wanted something more penetrating. I went with a Diamana Ahina 70gr Stiff. I played 18 holes today and the change was huge!!! I had a 10 minute warm-up session at the range and that was it. The flight was a bit lower just the way I wanted it. What was great is that I gained yards, because of the flight and the roll (less spin) and also it was more consistent in off-center hits. In summary, the shaft is a great combination with my TM Burner head and I can't be happier with the switch. I just love the shaft!!!!
BTW, I averaged 250-255yds and today I hit three drives over 265 and I'm sure I have headroom for improvement.

This was not the shaft for me..I ended up re-shafting my driver to UST Pro-force V2. If anyone needs one i'm selling it..its a stiff flex.

This is a great hitters shaft!  It brought my spin down even playing it untipped in a r11s tour head.  The 70x offers great feel.  I do like the kai'li for feel and launch better if you want a shaft that is a little more forgiving.  I would not recommend an x unless you are over 105 swing speed. The great thing about the ahina is you can play a bit more static loft because this shaft really knocks the spin down.

Agreed it's a great hitter shaft but swing speed gotta be 105+ or it would feel very boardy.

I am right at the edge for this shaft. At the range 105ss but on the course 100 ss...

Would love to game this driver but I am at a lost and going to have to sell my Mitsubishi Diamana Ahina 72 X shaft with a G25 adapter..

When I bought a used G25 off the Bay it came with a Ahina 70S. I didn't even think much about the shaft as I was going to change it out. I hit the club so well I'm still using it. Straighter and longer than any driver I have ever hit. Just yesterday I hit 3 of my longest drives in many years. I'm a believer.

I have liked Diamana shafts for a while now, I play them on my woods (WB D+ 72X and 82X, 114 SS), my issue was high flight and too much spin (I am sure that at the time it was my swing and not the equipment), this combination has given me the best results, the 'Ahina was and is a great shaft but it is not for everyone (just like anything else), it all depends on what is you are looking for in a shaft, feel, flight, spin, etc, the best thing to do is to go and try them out or get fitted, then you will know if the shaft is right for you...good luck

Ahina is good but I still like the whiteboard better. IMO WB was darn near perfect driver shaft....great feel, texture, and stability. Ahaina lacks some of the feel and comes across a little brittle. Almost like 2/3rds WB + 1/3rd 757 speeder. I found the WB gave slightly higher launch too, which I like. Ahina offers no forgiveness...you will only get exactly what you put into it, good or bad.
