(FORT WORTH, TX) - UST Mamiya - maker of the world's finest carbon fiber golf-club shafts - reports tremendous success on all major professional tours during 2010, with its premium models used in 33 victories worldwide, including 14 on the PGA Tour.The company's win totals this season outpace both 2008 and 2009, as UST Mamiya shaft users secured titles on the PGA, PGA European, Nationwide, Champions, European Senior and Asian Tours. Paralleling its achievements at the professional level, the company's shafts have remained the top-selling aftermarket option in the United States the past four years."Over the past year, the number of players who prefer UST Mamiya shafts has grown steadily," says Gene Simpson, COO of UST Mamiya. "Our superior designs and materials allow golfers of all skill levels to enjoy longer, straighter shots and lower scores."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 a variety of 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. The ATTAS T2 was introduced in late 2010 and is designed for players seeking mid launch, with tight dispersion and penetrating ball flight.
- 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.
