TENSEI™ products prioritize transformation and, above all, Mitsubishi Chemical is a materials company with access to world-class research and development resources. So, when we launched the TENSEI 1K Pro White in 2021 we knew we had the chance to change the game. We also knew the legacy of TENSEI™ is an insistence on perpetual technological innovation. This year, with the introduction of TENSEI™ 1K Pro Blue, we’re bringing the advantages of our leading-edge 1K Carbon and Xlink Tech to a premium mid-launch profile. The mid-launching, mid-spinning TENSEI™ 1K Pro Blue – built on the foundational knowledge of TENSEI™ CK and AV models – is the next stop forward in our lineage of mid-launch TENSEI™ products. [+]
BLUE: NEW for 2023 – The latest addition to the successful 1K Pro family. Built with a sturdy handle to promote stability, TENSEI 1K Pro Blue utilizes an enhanced stiffness profile that controls the curvature of the shaft during the swing to maximize head speed, all in a mid-launch, mid-spin profile that works for a wide swath of golfers. More speed and more control for more fun on the golf course. [+]
WHITE – The low-launching, low-spinning sibling to TENSEI 1K Pro Blue, TENSEI 1K Pro White packs a similar technology punch into a more piercing and penetrating profile. Built on lessons learned from its successful predecessors CK Pro White and AV RAW White, TENSEI 1K Pro White is an extraordinary shaft that carries TENSEI's technologically-driven message forward in the low-launch, low-spin category. [+]
ORANGE – The counterbalanced TENSEI™ 1K Pro Orange builds on the legacy of CK Pro Orange by incorporating 1K Carbon Fiber into the shaft’s construction. The result is Mitsubishi Chemical’s most premium low-launch counterbalanced offering ever, a shaft that features even lower torque and tighter dispersion than its renowned Carbon Kevlar predecessor to give you more club head speed and more control. [+]
Objective, Verified Data, and Research in MLAB: Through continued material advancement and innovation, our MLAB division utilizes the latest technologies, objective third-party data validation, and tour/coach input to push the limits of performance - giving players the opportunity to optimize every segment of their game and fitters the confidence of consistent performance.
A whole new blue. TENSEI 1K Pro Blue uses its material advantages with super-premium 1K carbon fiber and the Xlink Tech Resin System to create a shaft that feels great in the hands but activates the tip section to produce more speed. [+]
Golfers can expect maximum control and reduced torque from TENSEI™ 1K Pro White through the use of 46-ton carbon fiber. Boron is used in the tip to cap off this exceptional design. Available from 50R to 80TX, TENSEI™ 1K Pro White gives a wide range of players the opportunity to play the best TENSEI™ white profile we've ever made. [+]
