The Elite White Core-Tec has an added laminate to provide both a bright white color and a bright, crisp sound. The foundation of the head is the original Core-Tec. The enhanced surface makes the head slightly thicker, but still pliable. It's distinctly different from a Cybermax, for instance. Durable and ready for wet weather, the Core-Tec Elite offers the sound, look, and reliability competition demands. Made in Northern Ireland.
