- MRC GOLF Press Release - September 01, 2008

Carlsbad, CA - (September 1, 2008) - MRC GOLF, INC. introduces the addition of the FUBUKI™ Series to its family of ultra premium golf shafts. The new FUBUKI wood shaft series incorporates a revolutionary design concept called Modulus Differential Technology (MDT). Mitsubishi Rayon’s MDT technology combines state-of-the art, high modulus carbon fiber with specialized pitch based fibers around the tip section. The end result is a more responsive golf shaft that reduces spin and creates more consistent launch characteristics.

The creation of FUBUKI using MDT technology has been in development for nearly two years and has resulted in a variety of prototype structures that are designed to deliver outstanding consistency in launch and back spin, while minimizing shaft deformation at impact. The FUBUKI shaft was released as a prototype on the US TOUR in early 2008 and has been in play at more than 15 different US TOUR events in 2008 and has already registered its first official wins on the US TOUR and European US Tour in 2008.

The FUBUKI series will be available beginning September 1, 2008 in 63 and 73 gram weights and variable flex offerings.
