FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
June 5, 2012


FORT WORTH, TX – June 4, 2012 –
UST Mamiya, maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – has promoted Michael Guerrette to Vice President of Product Research and Tour Development.

In his expanded role, Guerrette will manage all aspects of UST Mamiya’s TOURSPX Technology Lab where all new product concepts are generated. He will also be responsible for the development and testing of new shaft designs, materials and production technologies for the next generation of high performance golf shafts. Guerrette will also manage UST Mamiya’s tour staff and coordinate development efforts on Tour while working closely with world class players in gathering performance feedback on new product concepts. The golf shafts that come out of the lab will make it directly on tour and to our TOURSPX certified dealer network. This has added value to the product line, expanded the visibility on tour products and has raised the perception of the UST Mamiya brand.

“Since arriving at the company in January 2010, usage of our golf shafts have risen on the PGA, Nationwide and Champions Tour,” says Gene Simpson, COO of UST Mamiya. “Mike has been instrumental in our TOURSPX technology lab where the development of PROFORCE VTS (torque) and ATTAS elements (mid-stiffness) came to fruition for our tour players and consumers.”

“We continue to push the engineering boundaries with our golf shafts and seeing great results out on Tour,” says Michael Guerrette. “The greatest reward is seeing our products accepted by our customers who continue to make us the #1 aftermarket golf shafts 5 years running.”

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 2012. They include Tour PC, Soft Touch, Comp DV2 Torsion, Pro DV2 Torsion Cord, and ST1putter grips.

Three Swing Challenge: Testing the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond driver

Published

on

GolfWRX’s resident Club Junkie, Brian Knudson, puts the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond driver to the test in our new Three Swing Challenge.

Why three swings?

Many years ago, the legendary Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf, told us this:

“My formula as a fitter was three shots only. I discounted No. 1 just because it was the first one, counted 100 percent of No. 2, and discounted No. 3, because the player was starting to adjust.”

This is in line with our experience, and we believe golfers can make a meaningful judgment about a club in just a few swings.

Let us know what you want to see in the challenge next!

What’s your 3-wood? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about their 3-woods. WRXer ‘Kdgolf’ is on the hunt for a new 3-wood, and our members have been sharing their suggestions as well as making arguments for their current gamer.

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.

  • phizzy30: “Still have my OG SIM ti.  It’s very hot off the face, mid launch, low spin.  Great off the tee, but you need some speed off the deck to make it come to life.  Qi10 tour is also another good one I tested and numbers were very similar to the SIM ti but it launched slightly higher.”
  • knudson81: “Cobra Darkspeed LS 3+ and add a Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro White 70. Absolute monster.”
  • adamwon84: “I have the AI Smoke Max 3 wood (15 degrees) and it might be the easiest club to hit from a tee or off the deck that I have ever had (when it comes to a 3 wood that is) and the distance is pretty fantastic.”
  • runningblind11: “Taylormade fairways always work best for me, I need a deeper face.  All in the last 5 years are good, but I really like the look of the Qi10 this year.   I have a 3HL and a 7 in the bag now.”
