Diamana Yellow Board Shaft specs?

8 posts in this topic

The yellow board shaft in my nike sumo driver(not tour version) is impossible to find any specs on. I have the stock 65 gram stiff shaft, but I need to re shaft my driver. It's too whippy for me and I'd like something heavier also. I was complaining about my driver shots being inconsistent and having to "gear it down" to get any type of results at the range today. The local country club pro just happened to be hanging out and asked me to take a couple swings. He said that the torque was too light for my swing right away. I average 275-280 off the tee and hit a few 300+ a round.

Anyways, I've been trying to find out what the specs on this shaft are to find something with a lower torque, but I can't for the life of me find anything on it. Anyone have any idea what the torque and kickpoint are? I suppose I'm happy with the ball flight, but I want something heavier with a lower torque.

I think I'm gonna reshaft my 3 wood while I'm at it. It's twice as flimsy.

There is no such thing as a Diamana Yellow Board shaft.

The sumo comes with a Diamana shaft that has yellow on it.

Sorry. There is no such thing as a Diamana Yellow Board. The only reference you'll find to it is from people who mistakenly call the shafts on certain Nike clubs "Yellow Board".

Diamana do not make a shaft called a "Yellow Board". They make white, blue and red board shafts.

I beg to differ. They made a shaft for nike called "Yellow Board"

This is even what sale people say, who sell these clubs. If this is not correct they would be breaking the law. I know a few guys who work in seperate golf shops and when people enquired about this club that is what they would say. I guess we can agree to disagree :)

Yeah, that's the problem. From what I can tell, it was made specifically for Nike and that's what retailers are calling it. However, there aren't any specs on this shaft anywhere. It would be nice to have a starting point when shopping for new shafts is the main reason I'm searching for specs.

I used to play this driver aswell and I had to change the stock shaft, I mean I still hit it ok but my stiff played like Reg and I use X shafts so was really really soft :P

Sorry I can;t be more help, I am unsure of any specs of this shaft, all I know is that it plays very soft!

    • There still seems to be a bit of a disconnect between his explanation of the situation and the shot that he actually played......just doesn't add up that he hit pretty much a perfectly paced shot with the "belief" that that ball was  sitting way down and maybe even slightly plugged.....just doesn't look to me that he was trying to gouge out a shot that is sitting way down........as Erik said on the first page, there is a huge difference between a ball sitting all the way down and one that is sitting up even a 1/4" 
    • So? I'll take what may be the minority view here… but so what? You said the kid was young, so I'm picturing, I don't know, a 7-year-old kid. At this point, the father's main "goals" should really just be "let the kid whack a few balls, see if he has some fun." What you see as "a few fundamentals" might overwhelm the kid. After all, look at the list you just posted and what sorts of corrections you'd have to make to fix all of those things… When I introduced @NatalieB to golf (granted, she was barely three), I cared about roughly three things: That she stood on the left side of the golf ball (righty clubs) That she put her left hand above her right hand That she had fun whacking golf balls "somewhere in the right general direction" That's it. Every "fundamental" that came after that was a result of her expressing a desire to get better. The last thing I'd have thought to do was to give her a list of a bunch of "fundamentals." That sounds like the opposite of fun. The most important thing a parent can do to help their kids develop a passion for golf is to make sure they have fun around golf (on the golf course, at the range, etc.), particularly early on.
    • Thanks for all the advice. Its definitely more a case of wondering if my distance is likely to increase rather than worrying about it.  At the moment I just want to keep working on a reliable and repeatable swing that gives me a straight shot.  Once I've got that I can think about other things. The point about not fully trusting the swing yet is not something I had thought about before, but I think there may be something in that - repetition and practice is the answer to that I guess. Those distances are already in yards I'm afraid :)
    • Kiawah Island is even worse, I'm sure… it's about a 30-minute drive under regular circumstances onto the island and out to the course, let alone during the PGA Championship.
    • I would like to add that you made sure to convert the meters into yards (add an extra 10% or so to the numbers), right?  Otherwise, those are respectable numbers for someone only started their golf journey. FWIW, as a 58 year old who started playing golf in their mid-40s, I don't have a lot of distance (driver 210-240y, 7i 130-140y and PW 95-105y), but I do enjoy the game very much, did take lessons and improved my swing considerably after I did.
