Quad Carbon Sleeve – Q.C.S
Mercian’s QCS technology is based around enhancing the already common braided technology. Braiding as a dictionary definition means:
‘to interweave several strands of (hair, thread,etc); to plait’
By weaving carbon strands together you create a carbon sleeve, this provides 360 degree, seamless strength within a stick. Using such a full-length sleeve within the Evolution 0.1 and 0.2 models creates a softer feel, a lighter weight, but creates exceptional energy transfer and therefore power. Mercian then overlay the full-length sleeve with 3 more smaller sleeves to offer enhanced protection at the three identified stress points – base of handle, backhand hitting zone and stick ‘heel’. By utilising these four sleeves we create a unique structure for delivery of maximum power and durability in two high-performance sticks.
