Mitsubishi’s all-new Kai’li White shaft: Developed with the modern, high-speed player in mind

Published

on

Mitsubishi’s low-launch, low-spin White profile, which exists in lines such as Tensei and Diamana, is now available in an all-new line: Kai’li.

Indeed, Kai’li White is the first new MCA series since Tensei in 2015. Kai’li was developed in response to both tour demand and the needs of stronger, more athletic golfers who are “looking to maximize speed and energy transfer while maintaining stability,” according to Zane Nuttall, manager of product development and innovation. (And because this is the first question GolfWRXers will ask: the new Kai’li line is of no relation to the Diamana Kai’li of 2009)

“Between Kai’li White and TENSEI 1K White, we now offer that player seeking a ‘low-low’ shaft a premium option in both a taper butt and parallel butt design,” says Mark Gunther, MCA’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Players are getting more specific about desired performance and what they want to feel, so our products are becoming more diverse and specialized to meet those needs.”

The lowest-launching, lowest-spinning White shaft in Mitsubishi’s lineup, Kai’li White features an extremely strong MR70-reinforced tip to promote consistent center-face impact and tighter dispersion, according to the company.

For the first time for the company in a low-launch, low spin shaft, Kai’li White features a taper butt design, which works in concert with Super Low Resin Content (S.L.R.C.) Prepreg and increased carbon fiber ratio in the torque core for a smooth, responsive feel.

Regarding the name, Kai’li is “meant to evoke the power and mystery of the ocean,” according to Gunther. The shaft’s gloss black finish features ocean-themed graphic elements.
