Kai'li Red + Family


DEEP POWER FOR THE MODERN GOLFER
ONE FAMILY + THREE PROFILES + A TIDAL SHIFT

Kai’li, a single word from two — “Kai” meaning ocean, “Li” energy — meant to embody the immense power and mystery of the ocean. As more than 85% of the ocean remains undiscovered, any shaft launched under the Kai’li name is representative of another discovery in shaft innovation. The same way much of the ocean remains undiscovered, so too does shaft technology and innovation. This season, Kai’li White, Kai’li Blue, and Kai’li Red join the legacy of Diamana and TENSEI; three unique profiles that deliver on Mitsubishi Chemical's commitment to bring the next innovation closer.

MEET KAI'LI RED

NEW FOR 2023 – Kai’li™ Red is the latest discovery in the Kai’li™ family and is proof positive that low torque stability is not restricted to low-launch, low-spin performance. Built with aerospace-grade MR70 material for maximum strength, Kai’li™ Red is the high-launching, mid-spinning profile made to deliver for those chasing higher club head and ball speed. Like its siblings Kai’li™ White and Kai’li™ Blue, Kai’li™ Red uses Super Low Resin Content (S.L.R.C.) Prepreg in the torque core of the shaft – the most consequential part of the shaft for determining feel. This allows Mitsubishi Chemical engineers to drive torque as low as possible for a high-launching shaft without any sacrifice in feel. [+]

KAI'LI BLUE – MID-LAUNCH POWERHOUSE

Kai’li™ Blue proves that intimidating power comes in more than one form. With a low torque value similar to Kai’li™ White, the taper butt design of Kai’li™ Blue offers an active feel in the hands and slightly higher launch and spin than Kai’li™ White – giving players a complete range of extraordinary-feeling Kai’li™ profiles that produce different launch and spin conditions. Kai’li™ shafts utilize Mitsubishi Chemical’s S.L.R.C. Prepreg and an MR70-reinforced tip, which combine to make Kai’li™ Blue our most stable and most smooth blue profile yet. A modern mid-launching, mid-spinning shaft built to provide the stability demanded by stronger swings and heavier head weights. [+]

KAI'LI WHITE – LOW-LAUNCH + TOUR-PROVEN

The first in the Kai'li series, the low-launch, low-spin Kai’li™ White was engineered to explore new depths of power and performance and has already supported six wins on tour since its launch in Fall of 2021. Designed to keep torque low under the demands of today’s high velocity swings, Kai’li White features an extremely strong MR70-reinforced tip to promote consistent center-face impact and tighter dispersion. Additionally, a taper butt design – the first in a Mitsubishi Chemical low-launch profile – along with S.L.R.C. Prepreg and increased carbon fiber in the torque core produce a smooth, responsive feel in the hands not often associated with low launch profiles. In short, Kai'li White is a blue-feeling, white-performing, and wholly unique shaft that doesn't sacrifice feel for flight. [+]

KAI'LI WHITE REAL-WORLD RESULTS

In December of 2020, the Mitsubishi Chemical Tour and Development teams headed to Sea Island, Georgia for the first of several testing sessions with an array of players. This session demonstrated Kai'li's ability to produce consistent center-face strikes, reduce relative spin deviation, and deliver tighter dispersion. [+]

KAI'LI RED – LOW TORQUE + HIGH LAUNCH

Kai'li Red delivers stability and deep power in a high-launch, mid-spin profile. Designed with a softer tip flex and higher balance point than Kai'li Blue, Kai'li Red retains a torque value comparable to the mid-launching Blue profile while utilizing aerospace-grade MR70 carbon fiber for maximum strength. [+]

KAI'LI BLUE – SUPER STABLE + MID-LAUNCH

Kai'li Blue is our most stable and smoothest blue profile yet; a modern mid-launching, mid-spinning shaft built to provide the stability demanded by stronger swings and heavier head weights. Kai’li™ Blue is ideal for players seeking to move from a low-launch to mid-launch shaft without making the sacrifice of higher torque. [+]

KAI'LI WHITE – LOW-LAUNCH + INCREDIBLE FEEL

Kai'li White's magic is this: an industry-exclusive Super Low Resin Content Prepreg integrated into the most consequential part of the golf shaft for feel – the torque core – allowing for an increased volume of carbon fiber. Together, this combination helps drive torque lower, increasing stability and consistency, while also providing greater frequency response to the golfer's hands. [+]

ON TOUR + ON MATERIAL + ON POINT

The Mitsubishi Chemical Team and GEARS founder Michael Neff discuss the launch of the Kai'li brand, the performance results of Kai'li on Tour and in GEARS testing, and the core material structure that gives Kai'li both stability and feel.

CORE TECHNOLOGY SET


MR70 Carbon Fiber - Specifically designed and developed by Mitsubishi Chemical for high-performance aerospace-grade applications, MR70 is an innovative carbon fiber material that is 20% stronger and has 10% the modulus than conventional materials.

<20% Low Resin PrePreg - Super Low Resin Content (S.L.R.C.) Prepreg contains up to 15% more carbon fiber and 13% less resin than traditional prepregs. This allows for a higher density of carbon fibers, producing up to 40T strength with less added weight and a purer feel. The S.L.R.C. fibers are also uniquely oriented at 45° to provide added tip strength and drive down torque value.

GEARS CERTIFIED - Through continued material advancement and innovation, GEARS data validation, and tour input, Mitsubishi Chemical will give players the opportunity to optimize every segment of their game and fitters the confidence of consistent performance.
