About Mitsubishi Rayon Graphite Shafts:
Since 1933 Mitsubishi Rayon has been manufacturing rayon fibers and expanded to include chemicals, plastics, fibers, and a variety of specialty products including composite golf shafts. Today, MRC is considered a world leader in the manufacturing acrylic and carbon fiber, with over 9,000 employees and consolidated revenues of nearly $3 billion USD globally.
Mitsubishi Rayon Golf has been developing and producing premium graphite golf shafts worldwide for more than 25 years, redefining quality and high performance in the process. During this time MRC GOLF has grown to become the leading supplier of premium graphite golf shafts in Japan, and has now expanded its distribution to the U.S. golf market. With many of the world's players using Mitsubishi Rayon golf shafts and an unprecedented number of Tour wins worldwide, Mitsubishi Rayon has established itself as a dominant force in the graphite shaft market.
Mitsubishi Rayon Technology:
Mitsubishi Rayon makes the best golf shafts because we make them from scratch. We not only manufacture the golf shaft, but all of the critical raw materials that make up the golf shaft including the monomer, acrylic fiber, carbon fiber, resin, and prepreg. Over the last 20 years, we have developed more than a thousand different formulations of resin and made over a hundred types of fiber for many performance-based applications, including golf shafts.
This vertical integration means we can make any combination of resins and fibers required to optimize a golf shaft's design and performance. The majority of our competitors, on the other hand, work with a relatively limited list of raw materials from a finite number of available suppliers. Typically they purchase stock prepreg, which can require designs to be adjusted to the limitations of the available materials. Our ability to make any composition of resin or fiber and combine them into our own prepreg sets us apart from our competition. It provides us with A Material Difference.

Kuro Kage Black and Kuro Kage Silver:
This innovative shaft design would not have been technically possible as little as two or three years ago. Our team of engineers has found a way to create High Density Prepreg: A prepreg material with 15% more carbon fiber and much less resin (20% vs. 33%) than found in most shaft prepreg. By changing the proportions of fiber to resin, and by using High Density Prepreg at specific points along the shaft, we're able to add strength - while at the same time increasing feel - like never before.
Kuro Kage Black HBP: Like the original KURO KAGE Black , the Second Generation KURO KAGE Black features a smooth bend profile, with a softer mid-section ballanced by a slightly stiffer tip and butt-section, with an all new higher balance point. Our High Density Prepreg continues to be used in the lower third of the shaft for enhanced feel, stability and strength. Using High Density Prepreg also allows us to raise the ballance point.
Kuro Kage Silver with TINI: The Second Generation KURO KAGE™ Silver Wood Series will feature the same Profile and High Density Prepreg as the original KURO KAGE™ Silver shafts, but with the addition of TiNi wire in the tip section. The result is a series of shafts that will deliver the lower launch and lower spin of the original KURO KAGE™ Silver profile, but with added stability and increased energy release through the impact zone, adding explosive power to the signature, KURO KAGE™ Silver profile.
Mitsubishi Rayon Fubuki Series:
Fubuki Series shafts incorporate MD Technology: MD stands for Modulus Differential. It means we've found a way to take materials with different responsiveness characteristics, that typically are not used together, and applying them in an innovative way to create very precise performance characteristics. By applying MD Technology in pinpoint locations along the length of the shaft, we can create unparalleled performance in a range of shaft profiles.
Fukuki Z-Series: Based on the FUBUKI ZT profile, the FUBUKI Z features a similar bend profile to deliver the same stability in the mid and butt-sections as the FUBUKI ZT, with a tip-section designed to promote a higher launch than FUBUKI ZT, while maintaining the same low spin. The FUBUKI Z profile also features progressive torque and a more standard balance point - making it a very versatile shaft designed to fit a wide range of players and abilities.
Fukuki ZT-Series: The FUBUKI ZT profile has been inspired by the highly successful FUBUKI α and designed with the better player in mind. This new profile has a stiffer mid-section than the FUBUKI α, to create lower launch and spin characteristics than the FUBUKI α, but higher than the FUBUKI K-Series. The FUBUKI ZT profile features lower torque, and a higher balance point to make it optimal for today's adjustable tour heads. The ZT profile will also feature 40-ton carbon fiber material for outstanding stability.
Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana +Plus Series:
This new series of shafts combines the premium materials of the Original Diamana™ Series with the M.D.I. (Multi-Dimensional Interlay) Technology developed for the Second Generation Diamana™ Series. The Diamana +PLUS™ Series delivers bend profiles similar to the Second Generation Diamana™, while retaining the feedback and feel of the Original Series. This new Diamana +PLUS™ Series will also incorporate a "progressive torque" system that optimizes performance by matching a shaft's torque and shaft frequency to deliver optimal performance for players of all abilities.
The S+ Series (BLUE BOARD) profile will feature MRC's signature "smooth" bend profile offering "balanced" stiffness on both ends of the shaft with a slightly "stiffer" mid and butt-section than both the Original S-Series and Kai'li™ to deliver the enhanced feel of the Original S-Series profile and stability at impact of Kai'li.
The D+ Series (WHITE BOARD) profile will feature a more tip-stiff profile reminiscent of the Original D-Series and 'ahina™, yet offer a slightly "firmer" butt-section vs. Original to deliver the signature feel of the Original D-Series and the consistent lower launch and spin associated with this type of profile.
