UST Mamiya® PROFORCE® AXIVCORE™ Used by Winner of the Albertsons Boise Open

FORT WORTH, TX – July 29, 2013 – UST Mamiya, maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts, reports the winner of the Tour Albertsons Boise Open relied on PROFORCE AXIVCORE shaft in his Nike Driver (PROFORCE AXIVCORE Tour Green 7X) to earn his first professional victory. With this win, he moves into 6th place on the Tour money list.

“UST Mamiya wants to congratulate the winner of the Albertsons Boise Open” said Robb Schikner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This is back-to-back wins on the Tour and eighth Tour win worldwide in 2013. The PROFORCE franchise continues to perform for the best players in the world.”

PROFORCE AXIVCORE Tour Green wood shafts are a tour-proven design that integrates AXIV – a true weave, 4-axis material – within the inner walls of the tip section only, providing a flexurally stable, torsional responsive tip profile for lower ball flight, reduced spin and better shot-making control without sacrificing feel. This tip-balanced shaft’s center of gravity is closer to the tip so players can better feel the position of the club head throughout the swing.  The Green Series uses superior high modulus carbon fiber in the butt and mid-section and are available in multiple weights and flexes to fit various swing profiles.

All UST Mamiya carbon-fiber shafts are made using handcrafted, repeatable production techniques that incorporate world-class engineering and premium-selected raw materials. This combines with tight tolerances, constant taper design and low-resin content to enhance feel during the golf swing.

The company produces a variety of shaft models, including the renowned PROFORCE and ATTAS lines, which have received significant usage on major professional tours internationally. Paralleling its achievements at the professional level, the company’s shafts have remained the top-selling aftermarket option in the United States the past five years.

Knowing that every golfer who installs a new shaft will also need a grip, UST Mamiya offers a line of premium offerings, with groundbreaking new models being introduced in 2013. They include the Tour PC 360™, Soft Touch™, Soft Touch Lite™, Soft Touch Wrap™ and ST1™ putter grips.
