Diamana's new special edition shaft " Diamana ali'islei " is a totally new departure from their current Diamana and Bissara technology.

They call it M.I.T (Material / Integrate / Technology) and its due out this Nov. in Japan. As the Hawaii TSG'ers know Ali'i means king and an aristocrat "the best class" by the Hawaiian language. The Lei is a flower design going down the butt end of the shaft thats very attractive.

Stay tuned for more info!

They haven't provided a lot of info on bend profile yet but this shaft was created based on feedback from tour pros so I'm assuming it will be geared towards the more advanced player. They only talk about using the best carbon composite materials available to create optimal ball flight and control and feel at this point.

Apple and Oranges -- the spec and price seems to suggest closer to White Board then the other two.

Specs and initial reports from Japan say that this is a more technology packed Diamana, an evolution from the White Red and Blue using more advanced design, materials and technology to make hence the higher price tag. Profile wise, they have aimed to make a shaft that has higher trajectory as illustrated by the mid-high kick. Even though the torque numbers are a little higher than the other Diamanas, Mitsubishi has said that a special amorphous carbon they are using in the butt, provide control and stability and the high tech molding procedure has created a perfect circular tube with controlled flex...

By the way I added it to the pro shop... thanks ArchangelGT for the scans... saved me from doing the work (^_^)

I absolutely love the look of the graphics. Interested to see feedback on this shaft. For me however, it seems Graphite Design shafts have always fitted better than Diamanas. I just wish they looked as good as the Diamanas.

I believe when the stinger launched in '04 it came with a hat as well, and even maybe a towel.

here are actual pics, as well as one pic from the tourstage prosupport car, which shows maybe a diferent paint scheme as its really really blue.
