Carlsbad, CA . . . Mitsubishi Rayon Co. Ltd. (MRC) announced today the company had more driver shaft wins on the PGA TOUR in 2005 than any other shaft company. Furthermore, the shaft manufacturer wrapped up the year with 6 of the top 12 finishers at the Tour Championship in Atlanta, GA, with the closest shaft competitor having 3 players using their shafts in the top 12 (Darrell Survey 2005).
"Having 3 of the top 4 world-ranked players currently choosing a Mitsubishi Rayon shaft in their drivers (www.officialworldgolfranking.com, Nov. 6, 2005) says a lot about the performance of our product, said Larry Bischmann, Director, North America for MRC Composite Products USA. "This success wouldn’t have been possible without a great support network in Asia and without our OEM partners."
MRC engineers believe their product line has a competitive advantage as a result of the company’s vertical integration and proprietary materials. MRC manufactures all the raw materials, including the monomer, acrylic fiber, carbon fiber, resin and prepreg, making MRC the only fully vertically integrated manufacturer in the industry. The result: a graphite shaft designed for and played by the best in the world.
Mitsubishi Rayon product is available at select retailers nationwide.
