Actually a stiffer mid section has been a staple of the UST shaft lineup and they made a point of this specifically in the Elements line of shafts back from around 2013. There are only so many ways a shaft profile can be built and nothing with bend profile is really "new". What goes around eventually comes back around but with better marketing.
"USTís proprietary research has uncovered new data that says that the oft-overlooked mid-section of the shaft is the most important for spin and launch. Armed with this knowledge, they set about designing a series of shafts, Elements Earth, Fire, and Wind, that offer different feels of launch characteristics while all utilizing a stable mid-section."
"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!"
I hadnít seen this published before, but thanks for sharing. I donít really think itís much Marketing on LAGPís side of things as theyíve literally done none. Perhaps youíre speaking more towards TPTís stance? Despite the inaccuracy of this being a newer design approach, I donít think it takes away from what LAGP is doing with only this first prototype which is one of 3-4 they are currently working on. I know several guys like the Elements and TPT shafts, so I think itís an appropriate segment for them to target for one of their profiles because they can see it being adopted by guys. I for one am excited to get my hands on one at some point and see what they can do because Iíve been a longtime Matrix user in the past.

My guess is those are just the proto graphics. They may change for a retail release. They also provide complete custom colorization for the main shaft color, logo color and shaft finish at literally ZERO UPCHARGE. This is basically unheard of in my experience. I remember the BSG days when you could pay an upcharge and get the custom candy colored Matrix shafts. I was playing around with the configurator on their website the other day, itís pretty fun. In my opinion, this is really the future of premium shafts because as we know, very rarely does everyone love whatever graphics a company chooses to use.
Hereís the link if anyone wants to mess around with it:
