Carlsbad, CA - (June 2, 2014) - MRC GOLF, INC. has officially introduced the FUBUKI™ J-Series counterbalanced shaft. Featuring extreme counterbalance weighting, Modulus Differential Technology (MDT) and our proprietary metal mesh technology, the versatile FUBUKI™ J-Series allows players to take advantage of longer or shorter builds. The combination of technologies makes this shaft ideal for players looking to maximize distance.
Mitsubishi Rayon Prepreg with Tungsten Powder
Utilizing MRC's decades of materials expertise, our engineers have developed a proprietary resin system infused with extreme high-density tungsten powder. This makes it possible to raise the balance point without making the shaft more rigid - as with traditional methods. Wrapping tungsten-infused resin sheets in the butt section moves the center of gravity towards the butt end - thus raising the shaft's balance point to an extreme level and making it much easier to handle. Because of its high balance point, the shaft is versatile enough to be built longer or shorter while keeping the same effective feel at any length. So even if you increase the total club weight, the swing weight stays the same. Better players will feel the smoothness of the downswing, as well as excellent feedback in the hands.
MDT (Modulus Differential Technology)
MDT delivers optimal performance -- regardless of the shaft's weight and flex. By combining the Amorphous CF (carbon fiber) and High Modulus CF in the tip section, we obtain an optimized launch angle with low spin. The "Amorphous CF Zone" acts as a hinge, accelerating the clubhead and creating the optimum launch angle. Meanwhile, the "High Modulus CF Zone" stabilizes the clubhead during impact and allows for a controlled low spin launch.
Metal Mesh Technology
There's also a metal mesh sheet inserted into the butt section of this shaft - a technology originally used in the FUBUKI™ K-Series. Imagine the mesh as a truss. It helps to decrease deformation in all directions with minimal weight impact. This does not affect the bending, but is able to increase energy transfer efficiency through the shaft. The insert's added weight also helps to further move the balance point up.
Product Profile Bend Profile
The FUBUKI™ J-Series is known for its extreme stiffness extending from the butt section into the mid section, before transitioning to a more moderate tip stiffness. This dramatic transition helps generate smooth acceleration through impact, with maximum stability and control.
Product Profile Pricing & Availability
The FUBUKI™ J-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, so that even average golfers can excel:
FUBUKI™ J 50 (R, S, X)
FUBUKI™ J 60 (R, S, X)
FUBUKI™ J 70 (S, X)
