This was the last one I could get here in Europe.

Nice.  Pls feedback on the shaft and compare to the Muziik PT135 if you can.

Will do a review on the Diamana but unfortunately I can't compare it to other graphite putter shafts because I never played one before and it's not easy and very expensive to get one of those over here.

Dogatti PT135 is the better feeling shaft in my opinion. 

Of the graphite putter shafts I have tried in the past,   Dogatti -> Diamana Proto -> Fire Express  would be how I would rank them.

Diamana Proto is slightly more hollow feeling than the Dogatti but still very solid and controllable.
Unless you are a die hard "Diamana" fan,    I'd say stick with Dogatti. 
I have not tried the new retail Diamanas yet but I believe they are similar to to the Prototypes.

I do want to try the Fujikura MC putter shafts.   
They use a rubber composite which should dampen unwanted vibration nicely.

ive got a few fujikura in bettinardis and they are  a totally different feel to the others, not sure if il ike them TBH.. it really deadens  the feel  but it doesn make it feel tight il give it that.
the dogattis it tought ot beat, the one imreally enamoured with is  the NGS proto,, that thing has a feel all to itself.  ipicked up a scotty golo   mallet  with it in it as a mega trade  late last year nad wanted to pull th head  and put it in a NICE putter.. but it just works as it is so ive left it albeit it  kinda still wanting to  replace   it  with a golds or a  benock..... when my attention turns to heat again that might happen.

Continuing the putter theme, I picked up a used LH Yamada Imperial in burning copper.  She's not a trailer queen, definitely an everyday driver, but the reality of coming across a pristine burning copper Yamada AND in left hand is slim pick'ns without paying something outrageous.  Wish I could've got a Kamakura, but again it's pretty much non-existent in LH.  I even contacted John Muir at clubmaker-online and he explained that Yamada-san does not make any handmade series in LH anymore, the only LH model he currently offers is the machine milled "Stick of Life" model.  Not sure if anyone may have other info on that.

This Imperial is my second Yamada to go along with the LH IPT I picked up a few months ago.  The IPT has since kicked out the Ghost Spider that I have been gaming the past two years.  I'm really loving the IPT, especially after I McGuyver'd it with an Attas graphite shaft last week, I'll try to post something on it later.

Also picked up a few wedges, a Yamaha Black 58* (already have the 52*), and a 52*/58* set of Mutsumi Honma wedges from a few years back.  Came across the Mutsumi's browsing YAJ and they caught my eye.  Love that the branding on the wedge is classy and traditional yet different than most.  Was specifically looking for raw/black wedges and they check those boxes.  They also have glittery ferrules and (the kicker for me) sakura flowers stamped on the toe face...kawaii.  So far I've played 3 rounds with the Mutsumi's and I really like how they play.  Feel is relatively soft, not as soft as my Epon 208 but close to it.  Definitely softer than the Yamaha Black which is pretty firm.  Spin is about the same as the 208 for me.  Head is about the same as the 208 with just a touch of offset.  What I love about the wedges is the control and consistency off the face I'm getting.  It will be kicking out the Epon 208 for now.  Very good wedge, I'd recommend a try if you come across a set.

Nice, we seem to share a similar taste for wedges. I can't knock out that Yamaha wedge out of my bag.

Got really bored over the weekend and picked up a Baldo 568 Competizione 460 driver with a Basi AAA 2015 60 S.
Not really in it for the head...  just wanted to get this shaft really bad.
Had a 70 S before in an AF-153 and for some idiotic & unexplainable reason,  I had let the combo go.

Now I need to look for a head that is worthy of this very capable shaft.

G400 Max looks really intriguing but I may just go find another used AF-153.

For sure I will give it a swing with the current head but it's DAT55G face .... right?   
Unfortunately,  I've never made peace with DAT55G faced drivers in the past.
