kamui pro  kp 07....diamana  60x  11* head.
had the GD pt6x in it prior and loved it but was hitting it  quite a long way left a bit too often/ its and all carry  wet weather driver .
11* is  too  much  for sure.  neeed this to be in a  10*

diamana MUCH tighter.... MUCH more, not as flexy so prob not quite as  long ,but my gawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwd the new model X is farrrken unreal.

 different feel to the old model. old model felt heavier , meatier. this is flightier but just as tight.
love it.. fabulous  shaft.

i have one ordered and on the way; 70X.

after having a new found resurgence with mrc ( i love my tensei pro orange v2 prototype), thought i would give something else from them a chance, now i need a head to put it in...

and seeing how the jbeam 435/ crazy 435 seem to be having a resurgence of their own, perhaps i will get one of those to put this "the diamana" in. either that or a jbeam galpha

Spoke with diamana this is the X shaft in a new finish same specs, this will be a very solid build if u go with the 435 head  prob a one off id imagine.  Not too many othes will go that build!

Im playing on windy links at the moment and the 435with 7d  is prety anazing. Its distance is surprising me now its very long,but its main add on is its varience ,,,thing will not move laterally ,
Basically im done but as  i have 30 drivers i have to play them,  very very nice surpise yesterday was the epon 101/labo tataki75sx, extremely straight,  feel / sound is out of this world,flight is perfect again doesnt want to go left a whole lot but the head shape lends itself to movement more so than the 435.

Bigest and most impressive so far tho is the kamui protp07 /diamana x 70 @ 44 inch 326.5g d2.5
The club pro hit it on friday and tried to steal it!
Has put in an order tp make one, this is aguy that gets given anything he wants form all  usa OEMs, said they were all toilet in compariosn, something WE know here, so im in charge of building a pro his first JDM driver, finally the shackles of the big5 are being removed and class is shinning thru.

Hes wants a distance driver... thinking the kamui with crazy longest yard might be a good start.

Anyway....

Today is the ryoma d1 10.5/ stinger 70s turn to impress, gonna have to be good to be up there with the 435.

Ryoma d1 10.5* w diamnana blue (original) , kaili, stinger boron or crazy boron
 will be as good a driver  as u cud get ur mits on.
 the one  built was with the stinger and its my favourite of the bunch i took with me.
 the 10.5* is barely noticeable  it plays like a 9.5.
Hmmmmm,  funny how the best shaft for this head is the one i originally discovered when my old builder before he passed on gave me when it was nothing more than a proto in 2010.
 Shud never have onsold the original!

The above mentioned shafts are all very similar to the boron in specs so shud be a perfect mate for this head if anyone feels the need to regress rather than go latest and never the greatest.

Cant rate this high enough, not being funny id hate to say its better than the 7d/435 ... thats unfair  but its not worse.. no way. Esp if u like the head shape , which i do , pair it up , and id plum for the higher loft rather than the lower.

This is a 10/10....  easily .

Played my 435 / Diamond Speeder side by side with Modart/ 7D combo.
435 10.5 has a much lower and piercing trajectory compared to the Modart 8.5
435 has that occasional giant "best drive of the day"  type bomber drive where as the Modart provides a more consistent "good drive"  on most drives.   

Fairway was pretty dry yesterday where I played. 
The run I got with the 435 was ridiculous.    I'm thinking I was getting 40 yard runs easily.   
Modart probably 20 to 25 yards ... 

Will keep the 435 in my rotation!!!

that's a very similar  result I get with the 435s .. epsecially with the 435/ stinger combo that has  been my  top dog for ever.
you get  cheat miles  it once it hits and releases, I don't play it in gunma or the mountians as  the fairways are always wet.   but in chiba................. good grief!!!!

3 games  over 3 days  multiple clubs in bag.. like 27...
 including the  fabled  ping zing "1"iron .
mountain courses , high  alley way tree fairway lined holes, needed to shape a lot of drives   misses wernt  dead  most holes  we  just had to  punch out so cud open the shoulders a lot. fk me it was humid, never sweated so much. 35-37 *c for 3 days solid I n the mountians Tokyo town hit 41 on sunday   that kinda hot  is  fkkn inhuman! .. 
AND........ not a single  breath of wind what so ever, the  grasses were  all buffalo  and mid lowcut so there was not a ton of roll, but it wasn't backspin conds  either ,very true  results, no distance  inflation  what so ever and  super good  to hit irons from .

great to have a look at what goes where and proper distacnes I get with all clubs actually true proper results

the bag...
masda MB/NSstx  irons and prgr nabla  IB black  /Ns wv125s wedges
honma driving iron 2i
solid contacts 2/diamana stinger 70x
prgr egg 18*/ diamana stinger 70xx
ping zing  / ns 950s  1 iron
4 of my  most treasured putters of differing shapes, once again the head shape didint seem to make a difference, the lie is the key for me, I need  a straighter   lie angle  up to the mid 70s.  that  was the key to my  best putts.



 I  hit the ball really well,  the 11th yesterday as  my  golfing   opus , 565 yard par 5  435/stinger... 1 iron combo to 20  yards short rough , THE  best 2 shots in a row  ive ever hot  and the  1 iron  was easlly  the single  best  iron shot ive ever hit .. it was a thing of pure  beauty,, small baby draw  like a plane taking off  and it just went on a  line I early  hacked one off right there in self appreaciation ,  why continue I can hit no better !
if it  stayed on the the fairway it wudda rolled on the green to a few feet  but alas I ahd to settle  for   a crisp  chip to a  foot , for a pick up bird.
boooooooshkahhhhhhhhh, this  course was getting owned!

 Ended  yesterday with a nice 73 but   finished off with 2 bogies grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!   
 
1 eagle/10 birds/1 double over 3 days.

not a bad  cpl a days  work , was good to be  back !

so onto the numbers I  do without a machine to tell me .

kamui pro was the shortest and highest of the 4 but was the easiest to hit and  with a consistent draw, its all carry this thing ,so its a specific club,  on rain days  its a laydown  no brainer. best feel/sound ( by a way) and I love  the look of the head shape. I cud  prob use this 1* lower  truth be told to maximize its distance potential  9* is too low / 10.5* is too high for me even with the diamana x 60x( which is............such a fkkn awesome shaft, the NEW model..... its faultless, utterly faultless totally in love  with this  shaft !!!!!!) and I need to reconfigure the weightings  in the ole to make it slighthly less draw biased . that alone might  help with flight, apart from that  was prob my fave BUT its shorter by I think 15+ yards  that's bit to give up on dry fariways its a full club.   but any hole with some shaping to be done , or over tree shots this got the nod its a  GREAT driver that   cud be better 1* lower.

ryoma d1vspec 
was arrow straight  but I can get a tiny draw from it if I ark it up and I can hit super low stingers  that go a fewf eet off the turf and pull up , it was  MILES better than all the other s for a variety of shots, the 10.5* is a lot better suited than the 9.5* to me  bec this doesn't launch high  any hole that is straight   with no  bends I took this one out and didn't miss a fairway with it. I think its my best control driver with sneaky  long distance to boot , misses were  a block to the right of the fairway/rough edge,  I didn't think it was as long as the 2 big boys ( jbeams)  but its consistency added yards  it just didn't  feel like it was long but it want short . sound feel is ok, dead centre is special you can feel that 60gram power tail come into its own, head shape  to me is ok... im not enamoured with it  but It doesn't irk me. its a top dawg  for sure.

435/7d.
 this is low and runs like a sprinter. VERY good  distance, very good control, low launch maestro. feel is ok , jbeams don't sound feel  as good  as others. but who fkkn cares when u see the results of the drive this can be wailed upon with every drive and it says pls sir can I have some more .. why tiger hasn't got one im fkkd if I know!!!!!
its CLEARLY................... and its not even close............... clearly the tightest shaft.
its unreal. the looks  are amazing  its my uber shlokken and it don't think  ill change it, its close if not the best driver ive ever had built.

that's is of course apart from this one................................................

stinger 435  70x 202gram head d3.5
THIS is the distance king
 slightly higher  launch . more carry than the 7d, a slight draw achievable  and impact off centre is like  a wrecking ball ....its prob not as tight as the 7d and its a very differnt feel . I  get the   sense of safety from the  7d that I get  in distance with the stinger.

is one better than  the  other ?

I doubt it.

I think  the better all rounder is the 7d,  but the mack daddy is the stinger.
I guess if I had to have just one of all these it wud be the  7d /435 followed by the ryoma/stinger.  BUT I cud never not have the 435 stinger bec  when  I play the long tracks this one is the top dawg foir sure.
 its great  I finally got  to run them side by side on course  to see where they  lie  next to each other and I really cant split em  apart to  say the 7d I feel more safe  with and the stinger I fell I get  cheat miles with.

they both win.

p/s sorry I didint take out a machine to get  side spin numbers/ launch angles/attack ratios, and a partridge in a pear tree so I popped up a cpl of snaps of the weekend.
lets just say, golf was NOT  the sole reason  for life. this weekend .,
