Proforce V2 Scores #1 and #2 in Distance at Fry's

FORT WORTH, Texas — High-performance graphite shafts designed and manufactured by UST (United Sports Technologies®) continue to make headlines through outstanding performance. At this week’s Fry’ Open in Scottsdale, Ariz., UST’s Proforce V2 graphite shafts finished the week No. 1 and No. 2 for driving distance, driving the ball nearly 30 yards farther than the field average. UST staff player Davis Love III held the No. 2 position for driving distance.

According to PGA TOUR statistics, the Proforce V2 delivered an average driving distance of 319.6 and 319.1 (Love) yards during the event, while the field only generated an average distance of 290.8 yards per drive. UST Proforce V2 shafts — which masterfully balance low torque, weight, spin and launch angle — provide a stable and consistent performance that is specially optimized for today’s 400cc to 460cc clubheads.

“The Grayhawk Golf Club is widely considered as one of the finest golf venues in the Southwest, and this weekend’s display of superior distance, drive after drive, was a great demonstration of why UST high-performance shafts are trusted by golfers on every pro tour in the world,” says Jim McIntosh, PGA Tour representative for UST. “The Proforce Series shafts continue to top the industry with innovative designs that provide superior performance, and the newest Proforce — the AXIVCore — delivers an entirely new level of distance and accuracy.”

The Proforce AXIVCore is a true weave of four different modulus carbon fibers in four completely different directions, yet they are all in one ply of material. Unlike any graphite shaft in golf today, the innovative Proforce AXIVCore integrates the weave within the inner walls of the butt section which provides stability and consistent shaft recovery. This unique counter-balanced shaft also reduces club heft that helps players generate more clubhead speed which translates to more ball velocity and greater distance. The Proforce AXIVCore Series will feature Blue, Tour Black and Tour Red models, and will be available in multiple weights and flexes to fit various swing profiles.

High-performance UST graphite shafts are played by some of the world’s best players such as Love, Rod Pampling and many others.
