New! FUBUKI K-Series

MRC GOLF Introduces FUBUKI™ K-Series - The Next Generation FUBUKI Series Wood Shafts Featuring Power "Ninja" Core Technology

Carlsbad, CA - (August 1, 2011) - MRC GOLF, INC. introduces FUBUKI K-Series, the newest addition to the FUBUKI Series of premium golf shafts. The K-Series profile utilizes the same Modulus Differential Technology (M.D.T.) found in the FUBUKI Tour and FUBUKI α (alpha) profiles in addition to Mitsubishi Rayon's latest innovation; the Power "Ninja" Core. This new technology allows Mitsubishi Rayon to incorporate a thin layer of metal into the butt section of the shaft to increase stability and maximize the power stored during the loading of a shaft, unleashing maximum potential energy to the ball at impact.

Designed utilizing Mitsubishi Rayon's propriety swing analysis software, the FUBUKI K-Series bend profile delivers smooth acceleration, increased butt section stability, and a slightly lower launch and spin than the FUBUKI α profile.

Power Ninja Core M.D.T. with Power "Ninja" Core

Mitsubishi Rayon has joined its Tour proven Modulus Differential Technology (M.D.T.) with a new core design called, Power "Ninja" Core. This metal core, found in the inner most layers of the K-Series, helps promote maximum energy transfer during the golf swing. The addition of this technology to the K-Series profile allows Mitsubishi Rayon to create a shaft with all of the benefits of a stiff tip, low spin profile while shedding the negative "harsh" feel usually associated with a tip stiff design.

Along with the additional energy transfer benefits, the Power "Ninja" Core also helps reduce shaft deformation in all directions without hindering its smooth bend profile.
