UST Mamiya introducing new Attas 11 shafts for 2020

Published

on

UST Mamiya has had tremendous success with the Attas line since its introduction. For 2020, the Attas line getting another update with the new Attas 11 with M40X carbon fiber, for improved feel and higher launch without sacrificing control, according to the company.

What separates the Attas 11 from previous Attas models is the introduction of M40X carbon fiber to improve feel and help increase the overall energy transfer to the ball.

So what is M40X carbon fiber? Lets dig in for a moment…

M40X carbon fiber is a material developed by Toray—a producer of prepreg raw materials carbon fiber. The M40X material is an improvement in tensile strength to previous versions of the carbon fiber—while also increasing the equivalent tensile modulus by 30 percent compared to conventional carbon fibers. Tensile modulus is also known as tensile elasticity, which is the tendency of an object to deform along an axis when opposing forces are applied along that axis.

(Let me see if I can further explain) Generally the “stronger/stiffer” a material is, the less tensile strength it has, meaning its resistance to breaking under pressure actually goes up. If you can make a material not only stronger but also more resistant to breaking when put under stress you can essentially “bend” it more, and the more it bends, the more energy it will store then release.

In UST’s case by using M40X material in the new new Attas 11 it can create a shaft that is stronger while also being more flexible on a molecular level. Another element of the Attas 11 design is a constant taper from butt to tip of the shaft. We see a lot of graphite shaft companies do this with certain models because just like with the utilization of higher end materials, constant taper can improve overall feel.

The Attas 11 is available now through the TSPX Dealers Network. MSRP: $350

    Is this supposed to be a fairway wood shaft?

Today from the Forums: “New Axis 1 Tour-HM models at the 2020 Honda Classic”

Published

on

Today from the Forums shines the spotlight on new Axis 1 Tour-HM models featured at this week’s Honda Classic. The flat-sticks have garnered lots of reaction from WRXers, with our members currently split on the unique designs.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tiger99210: “I like them. Doesn’t look Odd at all.”
  • Barracuda: “I don’t get the hate on companies that are actually trying to do something better than what we have available. I don’t play axis1, but it was definitely on my shortlist, I ended up with a LAB putter. It does look funky; it also helps me score better than my stunning queen B6.”
  • Steel Dillo: “I’d be more interested if they were priced reasonably. Just don’t see what drives their cost up comparable to a fully milled specialty brand other than having Rose’s name on them. IMO, they should be in that $200-$250 range like their other putters.”
