(FORT WORTH, TX) – UST Mamiya – maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – confirms the winner of the Nationwide Tour’s Soboba Classic relied on its ATTAS T2 shaft in his hybrid (87-gram, x-flex).Continuing the trend of strong showings for UST Mamiya shaft users, the champion recorded a final-round 68 en route to a three-shot victory at the Country Club at Soboba Springs in San Jacinto, CA. This is the company’s 25th win worldwide in 2010, including 12 on the PGA Tour. Other titles have come on the PGA European, Nationwide, Champions, PGA European Senior and Asian Tours.“More and more players on the PGA and other tours globally are realizing the performance advantages of our premium shafts,” says Gene Simpson, COO of UST Mamiya. “With a variety of options to suit all swing types and ball-flight preferences, UST Mamiya products are ideal for players of any skill level.”Designed based on feedback from PGA Tour players, the ATTAS T2 features the same great consistency and controllability of the original, but with a tip section specifically engineered to optimize acceleration through impact. The result is in an efficient transfer of power and unparalleled distance. The shaft is currently being used by numerous Tour pros, with a wide consumer launch scheduled for later this year. Likened to the precision of automaker Lexus, all UST Mamiya carbon-fiber shafts are unrivaled in quality attributed to world-class engineering, premium-selected raw materials and handcrafted, repeatable production techniques. Tight tolerances, constant taper design and low-resin content enhance feel during the golf swing. UST Mamiya produces 35 shaft models within the ATTAS and Proforce product lines:
- ATTAS – Introduced in Japan in early 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 fibers optimize feel and allow the shaft to maintain its shape for consistent, accurate shots. ATTAS is distinguished by its tri-color look, notably its atomic orange.
- 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 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 material promoting stability, control and ease of swing for increased ball speed.
