    Great to see the TXG content in WRX. Data led decision making! I’m a big fan of these guys and they aren’t scared to dispell a myth or two (recent ep on steel shafts in woods/hybrids)

    I play the EFSZ and don’t think I’ll be switching any time soon. Most of my potential strokes gained is in approach distance and putts per hole.

    The Mav may not be any longer than the Flash, but it feels and sounds 1000 times better.

    Just goes to show how awesome last years drivers are. G410 LST wasn’t any longer than the G400 LST in one of their other reviews. Rick Shields got about same yardages between Cobra F9 and SZ. RS was also longer with the M5/M6 vs the SIM line. Albeit TXG got better yardages out of the SIM.
    The “latest and greatest” is only as good as last years model now. OEMs have hit an innovation wall last year

      I just had a fitting and the Mavrik was much better than the Epic Flash for me, it is all about matching shafts and heads to individuals. I really wanted to fit the SIM but it just wouldn’t perform in my hands as well as the Mavrik so, I am now a Callaway guy. Everybody should get fitted on a monitor by a professional, that is the only way to be sure.

Mitsubishi Diamana WB: Club Junkie takes a technology deep dive

Published

on

Earlier this week, Mitsubishi announced the return of its iconic Whiteboard profile with the new Diamana WB shaft.

In our launch story, we offered a rundown of the key technology in the new WB — 80-ton Dialead pitch fiber, Aerospace-grade MR70 carbon fiber, Consistent Feel Design, and the Xlink Tech Resin System. To go deeper, however, we enlisted our Resident Club Junkie and bona fide shaft nut, Brian Knudson, to track down someone from Mitsubishi at the PGA Show. Fortunately, Mitsubishi’s Director of Global Aftermarket Sales, Jonathan Alongi, was on hand to answer all of BK’s questions.

Check out their discussion about the new WB, as well as the 20th anniversary of the original design, in the video above — time stamps of key points below, including a definitive answer as to how the surfboard graphic ended up on the original Whiteboard in 2004!

  • :40 – Mitsubishi Japan expands to the U.S. in 2004
  • :50 – “The shaft that set the standard”
  • 1:12 – “The ‘board is back”
  • 1:45 – WB or Whiteboard? Or both?
  • 1:55 – The first iteration of the sixth generation of Diamana
  • 2:10 – Incorporating key technology from a 20-year journey
  • 3:10 – Modifying the tip section for more ball speed
  • 3:50 – Delivering ball speed in a low-launch, low-spin shaft
  • 4:20 – Drilling down on the shaft profile compared to the original Whiteboard
  • 5:00 – The most impressive element of the new WB
  • 5:30 – Butt, mid, tip specifications
  • 6:00 – WB’s iconic graphics and the Diamana legacy — flowers, surfboard, numbering system
  • 8:15 – An abundance of available weights and flexes
  • 8:55 – More players going lightweight

Check out more photos and see what GolfWRXers are saying about Mitsubishi WB in the forums.
