A 95% Japanese carbon lay-up over a fibreglass and basalt micro-skeleton is further enhanced with a unique QCS overlay. The Quad Carbon Sleeve is a full-length carbon ‘sock’ with three specific extra sleeves applied to the key stress points in the stick – four in total (Quad). The sleeve technology provides the same 360-degree strength seen in braided sticks, enhancing the energy transfer for exceptional hitting power. The Pro-bend helps with flat hitting and conventional high-performance skills, while the HEX bend aids drag-flicking and 3D skills. An additional feature is the extra cushioned grip created with a 0.75mm PU foam layer beneath the standard super-soft Mercian m-tek grip.
