Mitsubishi expands Tensei Pro shaft range

Mitsubishi has extended its line of Tensei Pro Line shafts featuring carbon fibre/Kevlar weave and a reinforced boron tip-section.

The inclusion of the Tensei CK White Series is in response for the demand for a lower launching, stiffer tip option to compliment the mid-launching Tensei CK Blue Series.

Tensei CK Pro White is available in 60g (R, S, TX), 70-gram (S, TX) and 80g (TX) weight (flex) offerings, and features a multi-material design that builds on the tip stiff bend profiles used in Mitsubishi Rayon’s Diamana W-Series and KURO KAGE XT Series.

It incorporates premium 40 Ton prepreg throughout the shaft and a boron-reinforced tip-section to deliver the control and stability demanded by players with high-ball speeds.

“The multi-material design used in the TENSEI CK Series represents a significant breakthrough for us – pushing the limits of material science and performance-based applications,” says Mark Gunther, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MRC GOLF.

“Players of all abilities – from the professional golfer to the aspiring amateur, will be able to see and feel the difference. 

“The addition of the TENSEI CK White series to the existing TENSEI CK Blue and CK Pro Blue, ensures we can offer the broadest range of options to meet player and performance needs. Since its debut, TENSEI has become one of our strongest performing shaft brands on all of the major tours around the world. The results speak for themselves.”

Features

Advanced Multi-Material Design - Eleven materials are used strategically throughout the various TENSEI CK Series designs, to increase stability, lower spin rates and significantly enhance feel.

Carbon Fiber/Kevlar - A Carbon Fiber/Kevlar woven material has been strategically placed under the hands to increase the strength and stability in the butt-section of the shaft providing superior feel and feedback throughout the swing.

Boron Fiber - Boron fiber is equivalent in stiffness to high-modulus carbon fiber, but with superior compression strength. As a result, boron fiber is often used for structural reinforcement, most notably in military applications.

Low Resin Content Prepreg - Low Resin Content prepreg, with up to 15% more carbon fiber and 13% less resin than traditional prepregs, create a higher density of carbon fibers without adding additional weight.
