MRC GOLF, INC. Debuts the BASSARA™ P-Series

Carlsbad, CA - (April 7, 2014) - MRC GOLF, INC. has officially introduced the BASSARA™ P-Series ultralight shaft. Like other BASSARA™ models, this is not simply a redesigned, lightweight version of our heavyweight models. Rather, it's a unique, premium design that incorporates the best materials, to give a stable feeling while still being lightweight.

Featuring the Phoenix emblem, the BASSARA™ P-Series utilizes elastic Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire in the tip section along with an optimized EI curve, for the utmost feel during your swing and at impact. Within the BASSARA™ series of products, this model was specifically designed for distance.

Also utilized in the BASSARA™ G- and W-Series, the TiNi Wire in the tip section is a super-elastic alloy that retains its elasticity and quickly reverts back to its original form, thus allowing for the shaft to revert to its original circular cross-section and efficiently transfer energy. The low-torque tip section is complemented by a stiff mid-section and moderate butt section. The result is a shaft that dynamically promotes energy transfer throughout the swing, while delivering a penetrating ball flight with low spin.

Compared to the clubhead speed of a club built with an average lightweight shaft not containing Tini Wire, the BASSARA™ P-Series' ball speed is increased by about 1.3 fps and 4-5 yards (this was done with robot testing, using a 146 fps clubhead speed).

Cosmetic Overview

The BASSARA™ P-Series' finish is produced using a silver alloy Ion Plating as a base coat, to give the effect of a burning orange look that emulates the flames of the bird of fire. The tribal look around the shaft logo is done in a hologram decal, further increasing the premium aesthetics.
