Diamana Driver Shaft Alternatives

I’ve played that Aldila shaft. It was not too stiff for me and my SS was 92 - 94 at the time. 

That’s very helpful to know. Mine is around 108-110 so I guess it’s fair to assume that wasn’t necessarily the problem.

Try looking for a D+, D+plus or a D+plus Limited.  These are earlier Diamana White versions that still see regular wins on the PGA tour but should be much cheaper than a DF.

Slight plot twist I thought might be worth sharing. I ended up going somewhere different to get another opinion fitting-wise. I was fit for the same head (G410) and the HZRDUS Yellow 65 in 6.5 flex. I ended up pulling the trigger on that, especially because I was able to get it at no upcharge.

Recently, I went for a driver fitting.   It was a great experience and the difference was massive compared to my current driver (20-30 yards of added carry, much higher ball speed, total distance, tight dispersion, etc.) The shaft I was fitted for is the Diamana DF Series 60g, trimmed -.75. Unfortunately, the shaft itself is $400, which would’ve put me at almost $900 for a driver. Simply put, that’s unrealistic for me right now.

I was wondering if there are any driver shafts that have a similar profile/characteristics at a more reasonable price point. I know looking for something “similar” to what I was fitted for can get a little tricky and isn’t the best idea, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to ask.

Any input would be much appreciated.

 

I'm not sure if this information is too late or not. I saw the post that you made your purchase. I'm glad you found what you needed and didn't get the money sucked out of you.

For what its worth, yesterday I was chatting with my favorite fitter. I happened to mention your Diamana DF 60 dilemma. He said "Oh, tell him to try the Kuro Kage Silver 60." My guy says the Kuro Kage Silver 60 is almost exactly the same weight, balance, bend point, bend profile, frequency, and torque. He got into some technical stuff that I didn't fully understand. But, if my understanding is correct, the Kuro Kage Silver is made from different (less expensive) fibers than the Diamana DF. However, it's performance is damned near identical. Both shafts are made by Mitsubishi Chemical and my fitter, whom I trust, says than when ever somebody covets the Diamana DF 60 and looks for a lower cost alternative he puts them in the Kuro Kage Silver 60 as there usually, (may depend on driver brand) isn't an up charge. 

Just thought I'd mention it.

Glad you found a fitter, who would give you options without an upcharge. Enjoy the new driver. New drivers are always cool. I mean, who doesn't love getting a new driver?

    • I think these ads work well enough on folks that are already thinking of a purchase. So, once every few years, we get to marry a new set clubs and enjoy the ensuing honeymoon. If this is your lucky year, you are already emotionally primed. The marketing message of 'this bride or groom is better than ever' only enhances the 'emotional state'. (I think when in full on new club purchase mode its almost a medical condition for me..😄). Add a few got phrases like 'infinity face' or 'jail break' and it's game over. Not waiting for the ink to dry on the pre-nup. So yeah, for the right target the 'its better than last year/ever' works/has been obviously working, regardless of it being the same recycled message over and over again. 
    • What for? In case you decide to bring your local strip club to the golf course?  
    • Don't go losing your sponsorship with RL...
    • Feels like there should be a "That's what she said" joke here someplace..... Would that be appropriate? ... Probably not. 
    • For better or worse, this is entertainment, like all sports.  What the players "deserve" is some fair percentage of the revenue from all sources, which I imagine is primarily from TV rights, tournament sponsorships, and, to a smaller extent, physical attendance.  TV rights are directly related to what the broadcaster can get for the advertising, which relates to viewership.  Until the viewership for the LPGA gets close to that of the PGA, the purses for the players won't be close.  I have a hard time believing this will happen in my lifetime. This isn't to say that the players work less hard at their games, that they're not as competitive, or that women's golf isn't exciting to watch, only that the money coming in won't be enough to allow the purses to increase to get close to the men's.
