- Proforce – Famous for its bright gold color and contributing to multiple major-tournament victories, Proforce shafts have been UST Mamiya’s flagship since winning the 1999 Masters. The Proforce V2 incorporates the company’s original “tip technology,” masterfully balancing torque, weight, spin and launch angle for extraordinary power off the tee. The latest in the Proforce series, the AXIVCore® features four-axis woven carbon fiber material promoting stability, control and ease of swing for increased ball speed.
- ATTAS – The International Series was first introduced in Japan in 2009 and in North America late last year. This premium shaft was immediately adopted by Tour players globally. Innovatively engineered with smooth-bending properties throughout the shaft’s constant taper design, more energy is transferred to the ball for instant feedback with greater distance. Ultra-thin carbon fiber materials optimize feel and allow the shaft to maintain its shape for more consistent, accurate shots. ATTAS is distinguished by its bright, bold tri-color graphics.
