Mitsubishi Rayon Kurokage XM Series Shaft
Made exclusively at our facilities in Tokyo, Japan the new KURO KAGE™ XM profile features the same two key technologies found in the XT Series: Low Resin Content (LRC) Prepreg and Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire. Featuring a softer mid-section to promote increased launch, the addition of TiNi wire in the tip-section to the XM series provides maximum stability through impact for this profile delivering a potent combination of power and control in this higher launching product.
Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire
Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire is a premium elastic wire that immediately springs back to original shape when stretched. Integrating TiNi with carbon fibers in the tip-section allows energy to be loaded and unloaded with great efficiency when the wire stretches, while providing extra strength and stability to the tip. This allows for tighter shot dispersion, even for players with a high swing speed.
Low Resin Content (LRC)
Mitsubishi's Low Resin Content (LRC) prepreg, with up to 15% more carbon fiber and 13% less resin than traditional prepregs allows us to create a higher density of carbon fibers without adding additional weight. The Result: Added strength with enhanced feel.
The Ion Plating process creates a sophisticated, premium finish that cannot be achieved just by applying paint. The shaft is put into a vacuum chamber where chrome or silver alloy ions are fused to the shaft. It’s a more costly, time consuming process but it creates a stunning finish that we think is worth the extra time.
