He also used the ATTAS International Series in his 3-wood (80, X-Flex) and the Proforce V2 in his hybrid (89, X-Flex).

Tight tolerances, constant taper design and low-resin content enhance feel during the golf swing.Stewart Cink, a long-time user of UST Mamiya shafts and winner of the 2009 British Open, plays the company’s ATTAS shaft in his driver and two fairway woods.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.
