Mitsubishi Rayon DEBUTS FUBUKI™ AT-SERIES - Aiming to easily increase distance

Mitsubishi Rayon has officially introduced the FUBUKI™ AT-Series.

The Fubuki series, which has caused a "White Whirlwind" in the market, has a new addition to the family, Fubuki AT, launching Fall 2014. The Fubuki AT Series will utilize the core technology, Modulus Differential Technology (MDT) in order to optimize launch angle and spin. Based on the bend profile of Alpha, which leads to a smooth head acceleration, we have increased dynamic launch control to this profile. With an easier launch angle and distance control, it fits a wide variety of players. By adjusting the shaft geometry and the composition of the layers, we were also able to obtain a counter balanced shaft. By decreasing the moment of inertia, we aim to increase head speed.
