MRC GOLF, INC. Expands TENSEI™ CK Pro Offerings

Carlsbad, CA - (September 28, 2016) - MRC GOLF, INC. has expanded the TENSEI™ Pro line of
premium shafts featuring a Carbon Fiber/Kevlar™ (CK) weave and a reinforced Boron tip-section, to
include TENSEI™ CK Pro White. The addition of the TENSEI™ CK White Series is in response to the
success the brand has seen this past season with its debut on the major professional golf tours and
the demand for a lower launching, stiffer tip option to complement the current smooth, mid-launching
TENSEI™ CK Blue Series.

The TENSEI™ CK Pro White profile, designed to meet the performance requirements of the most
demanding golfers in the world, is the latest addition to the TENSEI™ CK woods series. TENSEI™ CK
Pro White is available in 60-gram (R, S, TX), 70-gram (S, TX) and 80-gram (TX) weight (flex) offerings.
TENSEI™ CK Pro White features a multi-material design that incorporates more performance-oriented
materials than we’ve ever used in a shaft. It builds off of the tip stiff bend profiles used in the
Diamana™ W-Series and KURO KAGE™ XT Series. This series also incorporates High Modulus,
premium 40 Ton prepreg throughout the shaft and a boron-reinforced tip-section to deliver tourpreferred
control and stability well suited for players with high-ball speeds.

“The development and launch of the TENSEI™ series of shafts has been an exciting journey for us,”
says Mark Gunther, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MRC GOLF. “In 2014 we looked to
improve upon several of MRC’s most proven profiles by experimenting with a wide range of new and
innovative materials.” “Since its debut, TENSEI™ has become one of our strongest performing shaft
brands on all of the major tours around the world. The results speak for themselves,” says Gunther.

Advanced Multi-Material Design
Eleven materials are used strategically throughout the various TENSEI™ CK Series designs, to
increase stability, lower spin rates and significantly enhance feel.

Carbon Fiber/Kevlar® (CK)
A Carbon Fiber/Kevlar® (CK) woven material; featuring MRC Carbon fiber has been strategically placed
under the hands to increase the strength and stability in the butt-section of the shaft in addition to
providing superior feel and feedback throughout the swing.

Boron Fiber
Boron fiber is equivalent in stiffness to high-modulus carbon fiber with superior compression strength.
As a result, Boron fiber is often utilized for structural reinforcement, most notably in military

Low Resin Content (L.R.C.) Prepreg
Our Low Resin Content (L.R.C.) prepreg, with up to 15% more carbon fiber and 13% less resin than
traditional prepregs allows us to create a higher density of carbon fibers without adding additional
weight. The Result: Added strength with enhanced feel.

Who It’s Best For

For players who place a premium on stability and control, in a lower launching, tip-stiff profile that is
modernized with today’s most advanced materials and resin systems, designed to tour-specifications.
