UST Shafts No.1 at TOUR Championship

FORT WORTH, Texas — Thirty of the world’s best golfers competed at one of the richest tournaments on tour, and many relied on the accuracy, consistency and distance delivered by high-performance graphite shafts by UST® (United Sports Technologies). Leading other graphite shaft manufacturers by a 3:2 margin, UST graphite shafts were the No. 1 wood shaft brand and the No. 1 hybrid wood shaft brand at the 2007 TOUR Championship.

Of the several UST shafts models in play, the innovative Proforce® V2 shaft was the most popular among the pros at THE TOUR Championship.

“The Proforce V2 alone has won more than a half-dozen events this season and its creative design and superior performance has clearly earned the trust of the world’s finest golfers,” says Jim McIntosh, tour representative for UST. “The V2 is one of the hottest graphite shafts in golf today and it fits a wide variety of swing types with the original Proforce V2, the V2 High Launch, the V2 LD and the V2 MOI shaft designs.

Designed and manufactured by UST® (United Sports Technologies), the Proforce V2 graphite shaft provides shot-enhancing benefits and features low-torque characteristics that have received industry acclaim for optimizing performance of today’s 400cc to 460cc driver heads. The modern trend toward larger driver and fairway wood heads has increased hit-ability for many golfers, but the center of gravity (CG) of most larger clubheads is positioned further away from the center line of the shaft, a design trait which places more stress and causes more twisting on the shaft. The V2’s low torque design provides the power and control needed for today’s 400cc to 460cc heads. Also, because the low-torque V2 prevents clubheads from twisting open on impact, the V2 reduces the amount of back spin imparted onto the ball and enhances shot dispersion.

High-performance UST graphite shafts are trusted by some of the world’s top pros. World-renowned golfers such as Jim Furyk, Davis Love III, Rod Pampling and many others trust UST shafts.
