Mitsubishi Tensei Vs Project X Cypher Shaft Comparison
The Mitsubishi Tensei comes in orange, black, blue and white iterations.
Today we are testing the Mitsubishi Tensei Blue against the Project X Cypher.
Mitsubishi Tensei Overview
“The Mitsubishi Tensei Blue comes in regular, stiff and extra stiff flex at 55g, 65g, and 75g weight points.”
The Tensei felt very fast but was very controlled through transition. I never felt that my swing path was altered due to the weight of the shaft.
Instead, I got very consistent, very predictable mid launch and mid spin rates (around 2400 RPMs throughout testing).
The kickpoint is in the midsection and amazingly, the Tensei is a higher torque shaft than the Project X Cypher.
Project X Cypher Overview
“The Project X Cypher comes in lite, regular, stiff and extra stiff flex. Weights range from 47g-56g.”
The Project X Cypher is even lighter than the Tensei and it launches considerably higher and produces higher spin rates (around 2800 RPMs throughout testing).
I wish the tip was a bit stiffer for better club head control; but the Project X Cypher was allowing me to keep my smash factor in the 1.5-1.6 range.
“While both shafts are consistent, I would recommend the Project X Cypher more to beginners who struggle to get adequate ball speed off the tee.
The Mitsubishi Tensei is better for players who are more concerned with staying on the short grass.”
