We’re also excited to have so many of the Q-School qualifiers to be playing UST Mamiya shafts. The future of golf is in good hands and we’re proud to be able to support so many talented young players.”To date, UST Mamiya shafts have won 14 times on the PGA Tour in 2010 and 30 times worldwide in 2010. As a bonus of its winning ways, UST Mamiya has been named the number one custom upgrade shaft in America for 4 straight years, according to Golf Datatech survey of annual U.S. aftermarket sales.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:
- 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.
- 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.
