MCA GOLF Strengthens TENSEI™ AV RAW White Series with Addition of Prototype 2.0 TX-Flex

Carlsbad, CA – (December 21, 2021) – Proving that their drive for engineering perfection never rests MCA Golf is adding a new, even more stable Prototype 2.0 TX-Flex shaft to their TENSEI™ AV RAW White Series.

The new design, which replaces the previous TENSEI™ AV RAW White TX-Flex, was one of several prototypes vetted during the development process and ultimately provides a better, smoother transition from the matching profiles of the S and X to the TX flexes within the AV RAW White Series.

“Our product design process always includes a lot of experimentation,” says Zane Nuttall, Manager of Product Development and Innovation for MCA GOLF. “But the unique length of this particular development cycle gave us the opportunity to keep pushing the product even after our initial Tour release, to produce the exact performance specs we wanted for this particular TX product.”

While the initial TX design was well-received by Tour players during early seeding, the new Prototype 2.0 provides a more powerful profile, with a stiffer tip and sub-3.0 torque.

“Today’s players are incredible strong, and we have to develop our products to meet the incredible forces their powerful, athletic swings create,” says Nuttall. “We’re pushing the strength and stabilities properties to the limit while still retaining a confident, responsive feel.”

TENSEI™ AV RAW White Prototype 2.0 TX shafts are ideal for the strongest players who want a stiff-tipped, low-torque, super stable shaft for powerful low-launching ball flight. They will be available through MCA GOLF authorized retailers and dealers nationwide starting January 4, 2021 with a suggested retail price of $400 USD, along with the rest of the TENSEI™ AV RAW Series which was released on June 1, 2020.

Low Launch and Low Spin

 

Technologies Featured:

LOW RESIN CONTENT (L.R.C.) PREPREG

Our Low Resin Content (L.R.C.) prepreg contains up to 15% more carbon fiber and 13% less resin than traditional prepregs. This allows for a higher density of carbon fibers, producing added strength and feel without adding additional weight.

 

ALUMINUM VAPOR (AV) COATED WEAVE

Produced by coating a thin and tight weave with aluminum vapor in a vacuum-sealed chamber, the AV Coated Weave functions to reduce shaft ovaling at impact and improve energy transfer.

 

ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS

Our expertise in creating thousands of versions of carbon fiber and resin combinations gives us the ability to create unique high-performance materials designed to deliver exactly what our engineers require to make our ultra-lightweight, high-performance shafts.
