diamana shaft differences?

Kai'li is a different profile all together, it is based on original Diamana S (blueboard), but with updated materials and MDI manufacturing. Therefor, for most players, it launches slightly higher and spins slightly more than "whiteboard" and a fair amount higher launch and spin that 'ahina.
'ahina = low launch ~ low spin (most firm felling of the bunch)
D+ = low/mid launch ~ low/mid spin (middle firm)
Kai'li = mid launch ~ mid spin (least firm)
This is all assuming that you are looking at the 60 weight class in each shaft.
As a smooth swinger, chances are you will enjoy the feel and feedback of the Kai'li. However, if you launch the ball high, you may enjoy the low launch characteristics of the 'ahina. It would be my opinion, that a good middle ground would be the new Diamana D+. It should offer you a smoother feel than 'ahina, and lower launch/spin than Kai'li.
