Carlsbad, CA - (February 10, 2015) - MRC GOLF, INC. has officially introduced the BASSARA™ GG-Series ultralight shaft. Like other BASSARA™ models, this is not just a re-engineered, lightweight version of one of our heavyweight models. Rather, it's a unique, premium design that incorporates the best materials, to give a stable feeling while shaving off precious grams.
The BASSARA™ GG-Series is our most current lightweight offering developed and produced by our engineers in Japan. It's a high-performance profile that's designed to be lower launching, lower spinning and lightweight. Its firm tip and stiff butt sections -- complemented by a softer mid-section -- provide stability. In fact, the GG-Series features our most stable profile in the BASSARA™ line.
Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire
The GG-Series features elastic Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire in the tip section. This alloy's elasticity allows the shaft to stretch and then immediately regain its original form and circular cross-section, to efficiently transfer and unload energy. It also creates extra strength and stability, to reduce shaft deformation at impact. The result is distance with control.
The shaft is finished in a rich ION Plating, creating a stunning and sophisticated surface. As each shaft in the BASSARA™ Series showcases a unique crest, the GG-Series features our Gargoyle emblem.

The BASSARA™ GG-Series is now available through MRC GOLF authorized retailers and dealers nationwide, and has a suggested retail price of $400. It's offered in the following weights and flexes:
BASSARA™ GG-Series 33 (L, R)
