Coming Fall 2020 — The 5th Generation KURO KAGE™ Black with Dual-Core Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire Technology and Straight Flight Weighting (SFW) is MCA GOLF’s latest design that yields the same high launch and profile as its predecessor KURO KAGE™ Black TiNi –featuring Dual-Core TiNi Wire and SFW. The 5th generation offers a slightly tighter profile in overall stiffness with lower torque to deliver less spin that its predessor. SFW helps golfers square the clubface through impact, thus creating straighter shots.

Straight Flight Weighting
The Straight Flight Weighting (SFW) system improves ball flight. As a shaft gets lighter, it becomes more difficult for the golfer to square the clubface or turn the club over through impact. The effect becomes noticeable as shafts start weighing less than 60 gram and is progressive -- meaning a 45 gram shaft is even harder to square than a 55 gram shaft. Thus, SFW is designed to help the golfer turn the club over easier through impact, which in turn straightens a slight fade or promotes a slight draw. A short section of tungsten weighted prepreg is precisely placed under the lower end of the shaft’s grip area to produce the effect.
Dual-Core Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire
Titanium Nickel (TiNi) Wire is a premium elastic wire that immediately springs back to its original shape when stretched. By placing a double layer of TiNi Wire (Dual-Core TiNi) in the tip-section of the shaft we can further increase the strength and stability at impact, and deliver tighter shot dispersion.
Low Resin Content (L.R.C.) Prepreg
Our Low Resin Content (L.R.C.) 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.
Our Variable Torque system optimizes performance by targeting shaft torque and flex. Players of all abilities can benefit from a torque and flex designed to meet their swing speeds.
