MITSUBISHI RAYON INTRODUCES THE FUBUKI® AX SERIES OF HYBRID SHAFTS
Carlsbad, CA - (January 21, 2011) - MRC GOLF, INC. introduces the Fubuki™ AX Hybrid Series of shafts to its family of high-performance, tour-proven Fubuki wood shafts. The new Fubuki AX series of Hybrid shafts has been designed to be the perfect compliment to the Fubuki AX Fairway Wood and Fubuki Alpha Driver Series - one of the most widely played shafts on professional tours worldwide. The new AX Series of shafts by Mitsubishi Rayon allow players of all ability to build a perfectly match set of shafts - Driver, Fairway Wood, Iron, and now Hybrid. This new Hybrid Series will make its debut at the 2011 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida and has already made its debut on the US and European tours.
The Fubuki™ AX Hybrid utilizes the latest in materials and design to deliver the premium performance and control demanded by today's strongest players. The series incorporates our latest amorphous Carbon Fiber design in the tip section to minimize the traditional disadvantage associated with high-performance carbon fiber hybrid shafts yet delivers a more consistent and repeatable dynamic launch angle.
With a variety of weights and flexes, players of all abilities can now maximize the advantage of playing pure high-performance carbon fiber hybrid shafts.
