Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro Blue joins Tensei 1K lineup

Published

on

You’ve seen it in the bags of tour pros, including Valspar Championship winner, Taylor Moore. Now Mitsubishi is bringing 1K Pro Blue to retail. The company is adding to its 1K Pro lineup — which currently includes 1K Pro White and 1K Pro Orange.

Consistent with the company’s labeling conventions, 1K Pro Blue is a mid-launch, mid-spin offering.

“Anticipation for Tensei 1K Pro Blue has been building for a while now,” Mark Gunther, Senior Director Sales & Marketing said. “1K Pro White laid such a nice foundation for the family and 1K Pro Orange provided that great counterbalanced option, but there’s just nothing like a Blue profile to fit the largest swath of golfers out there. Tensei 1K Pro Blue carries that mid-mid mantle as good or better than any Blue we’ve ever done.”

Key technology

  • 1K carbon fiber: Super-premium material positioned in the handle of the shaft to reduce ovalization and improve center-face contact.
  • Xlink Tech Resin System: Increases the volume of carbon fiber for smoother feel without compromising durability.
  • MR70: The flagship Mitsubishi material strengthens the shaft for optimum loading throughout the swing.

Why pros are putting Callaway’s new Triple Diamond Max driver in play

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from a piece our Andrew Tursky originally wrote for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report. Head over there for the full article.

According to Nick Yontz, Callaway’s advanced R&D manager, PGA TOUR players began testing the prototype last November and found it to provide a unique combination of speed and forgiveness.

“Players would step up and we had it matched up to their gamer driver specs,” Yontz said. “They would swing, and we saw consistently good ball flights – very stable. It was the word ‘stable’ that continued to be used by players.

“They would continue to split the fairway and what that caused them to do was to start swinging faster. They had this excitement that, ‘This thing doesn’t go offline. I can keep swinging harder and harder and it maintains that straight flight.’

“We were seeing players that would have small gains in ball speed from just the driver head alone, but then the swing speed would increase the more and more swings they made. By the end of it, they really saw meaningful gains in ball speed and distance.”

From the sounds of those early testing sessions, it’s no wonder the Triple Diamond Max prototype head made its way into PGA TOUR bags, and will soon be available on retail shelves. Among 2024 RBC Canadian Open players this week, it’s been confirmed that Wesley Bryan, Kevin Yu and Carl Yuan will be using Callaway’s Triple Diamond Max head.
