The newest addition to the classic whiteboard and blueboard series from Mitsubishi is the DF (whiteboard) and BF (blueboard) shafts. The DF is a low launch, low spin golf shaft designed to optimize delivery and give players more distance and accuracy from the tee box. Many golfers will find that the DF has an improved feel over previous generations of the Diamana whiteboards without any loss of performance.

Key Features

The Diamana DF golf shaft mixes Dialead Pitch Fiber, MR70, and boron to precisely relocate weight to maximize load and energy transfer.

The DF golf shaft is a tip stiff profile that can reduce launch, optimize spin, and create more distance off the tee.

The tip section of the DF is stiff, yet the butt section is softer to improve feel throughout the golf swing.

Design and Technology

Mitsubishi continues to dominate professional tour counts with their golf shafts. The DF is the newest evolution of the whiteboard series. 


The Diamana DF uses Dialead Pitch Fiber throughout the golf shaft to build a shaft that is stable but not harsh to swing. 

MR70 carbon fiber and boron are used to enhance the strength of the DF shaft to improve energy transfer from your hands to the golf ball. Better loading and enhanced stability can mean an improve control of strike and improved driving performance as a result.


PROS

  • The Diamana DF combines the outstanding performance of the traditional whiteboard shaft lines with an improved feel and better energy transfer.
  • Mitsubishi uses Dialead fiber, MR70, and boron to provide a stiffness profiles that offers players great control and a low launch and low spin.
  • The DF shaft is available in a wide range of weights and flexes to help golfers optimize performance at almost any swing speed.

CONS

  • Very aggressive swingers may prefer a more reinforced butt section than the Diamana DF offers.
  • The Diamana DF shaft may be hard to find and test outside of premium club fitting studios.
  • Golfers that already love their whiteboard golf shafts may not find enough improvement with the DF to justify the upgrade.

Our Experience

The whiteboard line of golf shafts from Mitsubishi has been proven at every level of golf. I personally have gone in-and-out of a whiteboard profile every time. The performance often draws me in, the feel can push me away. The DF seems to balance both of these better than any previous whiteboard-style model. The DF gives you 100% of the performance you can expect from Mitsubishi with feedback that is more pleasant to swing and feels like it loads perfectly even when you make a less than perfect swing. If you are anything like me and have used whiteboard shafts with some success but found the feel to be less than ideal, the DF shaft may be your perfect blend.
