The Diamana has won broad praise from tour players and the advanced recreational golfer looking for and expecting more from a shaft. Mitsubishi starts with very intensive prototyping and performance testing for every model they introduce.

This collaboration provides input from the skilled players allowing for a betterment process matched by few shaft makers today.
Mitsubishi has what they call Vertical Integration technology. This technology allows them to combine any number of resins and fibers required to increase the performance of the shaft. Mitsubishi puts a lot of stock in this technology and labels this their Material Difference.
