UST Mamiya® Elements® Used by Winner of the Chiquita Classic

FORT WORTH, TX – September 9, 2013 – UST Mamiya, maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts, reports the winner of the Web.com Tour Chiquita Classic relied on an Elements shaft in his TaylorMade® Driver to earn his second win this year.  

“UST Mamiya wants to congratulate the winner of the Chiquita Classic” said Robb Schikner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This is the 2nd win in three weeks for Elements shafts on the Web.com Tour. Elements shafts provide greater stability in the mid-section of the shaft for ideal launch and spin for maximum distance and greater accuracy.”

UST Mamiya’s advanced research lab has uncovered new data that proves Mid-Flex Stability is the most important feature in the golf shaft for spin and launch. The research to isolate the benefits of Mid-Flex Stability has led to the design and extension of the mid-section profile to enhance performance, reduce dispersion and increase ball speed. The result is longer, straighter and more accurate shots!

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.
