    So is that really a Diamana S+???? Or is it still the painted KK XT?

    And what are the lengths and swing weights on his irons….???? Anybody?

    It is such a treat to watch Rory play at the top of his game. Loving that new driver he’s playing. The Protracers of his drives was fun to watch. 2016 looks to be a great year for golf fans.

    Anyone know what length his driver is?

    • mhendon

      Nov 23, 2015 at 4:14 pm

      Traditionally he’s played 45.5 but not sure about this most resent one.

      • Ian

        Nov 24, 2015 at 12:58 am

        Isn’t that quite long for a pro and McIlroy’s height? I heard Tiger *waits for backlash* used a 42″ driver in his prime.

        • Nat

          Nov 25, 2015 at 10:58 am

          No backlash necessary, that is fairly long for McIlroy’s height… 45.5” is about standard nowadays, although there are a few 44-44.5” out there (Furyk 44”, Bubba 44.5” I believe?)… Tiger of Titleist days 43.5” in his 975, 983 drivers

    The putter is a Method Origin B2/01

    • Zak Kozuchowski

      Nov 22, 2015 at 3:26 pm

      That is correct, Kyle. Thanks for noticing the error.

    The irons are Miura, badged as Nike, don’t be shocked, Andy Murray does’t use a Head tennis racket, and Joe Root doesn’t use a New Balance cricket bat, every sport that uses any form of equipment is driven by $ endorsements and badging. If Miura and Mitsubishi want RM to show their brand, they need to pay the endorsement dollars, or just be quietly satisfied that they make the best products. Fo those who follow cricket, many small bat makers make bats for big name pro’s, knowing they’ll never ket the credit, but also know if they needed to churn our 1000000 bats a year to be sold to label junkies, their quality would suffer so they choose not to. Same with golf clubs. DOn’t be a lable whore, try before you buy and choose what suits you the best.

      Irons are Nike, badged as Nike.

    • Brian

      Nov 22, 2015 at 8:20 pm

      That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Nike makes Rory’s clubs, not Miura.

      Thanks for coming out though.

    • Gary

      Nov 23, 2015 at 12:50 am

      HA you are so stupid! Nike makes its own clubs in California. Its true that top pros like Rory and Tiger will get the best copies of their clubs they are still made by Nike and not Miura.

      Donny knows nothing

      Nov 25, 2015 at 5:15 pm

      Stop wasting your breath I for one know you’re right about Rory’s irons, really makes me laugh that some even think Nike irons are made somewhere in the US when they are forged in one of the best factories in China.

    After watching the way Rory kills his Nike and the way Rickie kills his Cobra will all you homers stop with the “inferior” club talk. There is no “better” only different.
    Oh and that Nike ball he’s hitting looks like it works pretty good to me.

    • MHendon

      May 19, 2015 at 1:40 am

      Yeah I find it kind of funny how people develop loyalties to certain brands. Especially when it’s based of what their favorite player uses. For me my loyalties are based on a certain look, and most manufactures make a club that appeals to my eye. From there it goes by which ever performs best for me.

    Glad he took those plastic irons out of the bag and put real irons back in.

    Pretty misleading to simply list his driver shaft as a diamana S+

    • loowaters

      May 5, 2015 at 5:18 am

      There was a great shot of him holding his finish on a tee shot in the final match and you could clearly see all the new graphics of the Diamana S+ 70. I was shocked that’s what he was playing.

      • Ross

        May 5, 2015 at 1:33 pm

        Yes, that’s what the graphics indicate. It has been listed previously as a “prototype”, which is or is essentially a Kuro Kage XT.

        • Kyle

          May 18, 2015 at 10:50 am

          How do you know exactly what it is? You don’t.

        • Chuck

          May 18, 2015 at 4:57 pm

          Could we please get some more info on this? I’ve now seen several sources confirm — mostly to my satisfaction although I have no way of knowing one way or another — that indeed Rory’s current driver shaft is a prototype Kuro Kage XT. And that it is painted to look like a Diamana S+, with perhaps some very minor identifying text that can only be seen up close.

          This is all curious to me. I presume it all dates back to the fact that Rory’s current gamer shaft is old enough (what? 12, 14 months?) that this Kuro Kage XT proto was created at a time (perhaps almost two years ago) when it wasn’t a retail item, and Mitsubishi wanted to promote retail items on tour. Hence the phony Diamana S+ graphics.

          But now the Kuro Kage XTS (any difference between “XT” and “XTS”?) is a premium retail item and they could be making bank off of underground news that McIlroy is killing driving stats on tour with their newest innovative product. Tiger Woods never did a promotion for Diamana Blue Boards but how many did he effectively sell?

          I’d like to know all about this story, just for the satisfaction of knowing. Whether or not I can even dream of hitting driver like Rory, and whether or not I’d be a good candidate for something like an S-Flex Kuro Kage, I’d just like to have all the info. And any time a tour product is different, and disguised, I always make it a kind of a mission to figure out the truth.

          One other curiosity in all of this is that I understood that while McIlroy’s gamer has Diamana S+ 70 graphics, it is actually a Kuro Kage XT 60-X. Which would be even more peculiar, if true. Why fool anybody on the gram weight of all things?

          Anyway, I’d love to hear from anybody who can answer these questions, and probably a dozen other questions that I haven’t even thought to ask.

    kuro Kage xts

  14. joe

    his shaft is Kuro cage XTS.

    Picture 11 of 11 has a HORRIBLE stencil job on the grooves cough cough cough not exactly like the ‘authentic’ Rory putters that sold out by Nike @ 400.00 a pop

    Needs to update the 3-iron

  17. Justin

    Feb 2, 2015 at 6:44 pm

    Funny how it says Vapor Pro 3-9 iton but shows pics of VRS II blades??? Pretty sure those pucs arent real, he is playing MM Proto, the original vapor custom for him.

    His driver shaft is a Kuro Kage Prototype that a lot of guys are switching to!

  18. Jungho

    Feb 2, 2015 at 9:54 am

    Interesting. So he has gone back to the VR Pro blades… Guess the Vapors still need to be tuned to his liking?

  19. Josh

    Feb 1, 2015 at 10:52 pm

    Does anyone know what length Rory’s driver measures? 45″ or shorter?

  20. Mark

    Feb 1, 2015 at 10:18 pm

    Doesn’t like the vapor irons??

  21. "your reaction?"

    Feb 1, 2015 at 8:10 pm

    “Your reaction”…..kind of a lame idea, seems like something Perez Hilton or TMZ would attach to their articles. Really, what from this article is a shank? It’s pictures and a list of his clubs.

    I watched the whole European tournament this weekend and rory didn’t win…he finished t3

    • Keith

      Feb 2, 2015 at 7:01 am

      Oh really? Then you must blind or stupid he finished -22 for the win watch another sport or don’t write on forums if you don’t know what your talking about

    • King

      Feb 4, 2015 at 10:43 am

      You dreaming at the tournament !

  23. Neige

    Back to VR Pro blades!

  24. ChrisK

    Feb 1, 2015 at 3:24 pm

    it sure looked like he had a Diamana Blue board in his driver.

    • Michael Riechmann

      Feb 1, 2015 at 3:34 pm

      Yeah sure looked like the new Blue Board to me as well. It had to be the TX flex too.

    • Grant Sports

      Feb 1, 2015 at 3:35 pm

      It was definitely a Blue Board this week…

      • DatSliceDoe

        Feb 1, 2015 at 4:35 pm

        Could have been a paint job to make the KK look like a Blue Board?

        • Zak Kozuchowski

          Feb 1, 2015 at 4:44 pm

          We got bad intel, but now it’s right. Thanks guys!

        • Andy

          Feb 2, 2015 at 10:13 am

          Paint job is 100% correct. Mitsubishi rep at PGA Show Demo Day told us that he’s still rocking the Kuro Kage, but it’s painted to look like a blue board. Makes sense since the Diamana is the stock offering. Good for retail sales to have your ace hitting what’s in the stores.
