WRX Spotlight Review: UST Mamiya Attas 11 shaft

Published

on

Product: UST Mamiya Attas 11 shaft

Pitch: From UST: “A revolutionary combination of innovative shaft design and advanced carbon fiber materials. We combined aerospace grade M40X Carbon Fiber with a new constant taper design. Designed for a higher launch, high performance shaft offering optimum flex and torque characteristics with feel. The ATTAS line has been a successful staple in UST’s offerings, and with the introduction of ATTAS 11 or “Jack,” this will be no exception. Designed to improve launch, but keep the stability the line is known for, this rendition enhances the line with better materials, better energy transfer, and an unforgettable feeling swing experience.”

Our take on the 2020 UST Mamiya Attas 11 shaft

I was provided the Attas 11 6S weighing in at a raw weight of 66 grams, 3.8 degrees of torque, and profile promoting mid-spin with a mid to high launch. This shaft was placed in a Wilson Staff Cortex head playing 11 degrees with the weights in the neutral position and the sliding weight in the middle front location. The shaft was placed up against another UST offering: the Helium, which is a shaft that has been very popular and notable for its lightweight, but super stable design. I was also able to hit it against the Fujikura Atmos Blue Tour Spec 6S.

On course testing went right along with claims from UST. I experienced a good mid flight with notable lower spin than the Helium. The Attas 11 felt much stiffer than the Helium but not in a negative way. After a few rounds with “Jack,” I was impressed with the consistency I was getting in flight, control, and distance. My miss was predictable and controllable, whereas I have been having more of a two-way miss with the lighter Helium.

Review-UST Mamiya Attas 11 shaft

During an analysis at David Ayers’ Low Country Custom Golf with fitter and club guru Kristian Barker, we discussed shaft profiles and recorded some numbers to see how they compared. The first round was very subpar in terms of swing and after a round with all the shafts and a little guidance from Kristian, the second round was much better. I was very happy to be able to have a testing day where I can see how the equipment performed with bad and good swings.

The Helium was the distance winner, but even though the offline number portrays better accuracy, I was having my typical two-way miss with both left and right big misses. The “Jack,” while a little shorter, gave me a consistent ball flight that was more likened to how I hit when I’m playing well. Also, though the Helium was a bit longer, that can easily be attributed to the fact that it is much lighter, and after the session, I measured it at 45.5 inches playing length whereas I had the Attas 11 cut to 45.

Overall, the Attas 11 is certainly a premium shaft that caters to those who would like a little higher launch without worrying about the spin getting too high or feeling overly stiff. On course and the launch monitor, this shaft performs and is every bit of what UST has marketed it to be in terms of launch, spin, and feel.

I am an avid golfer and fisherman living in Charleston, SC. I am a gear head, love course architecture, and enjoy just being out with people—friends or strangers—enjoying this wonderful game. Golf cannot be perfected. It's what I love most about it as I chase that goal each time I go out and play. I work in sports medicine as an athletic trainer. I have two wonderful and beautiful girls. I do enjoy the coastal life here, but I severely miss the mountains of Virginia where I lived most of my life.

No tape, no solvent: New Golf Pride Concept Helix grip makes installation hassle-free

Published

on

If you have ever wanted to regrip your clubs but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of tape or solvent, Golf Pride has developed a revolutionary system to make regripping easier than ever before with the all-new Golf Pride Concept Helix.

The Concept Helix grip and the simple system used to install it removes the fear factor of installing grips and also brings a new level of accessibility to those that are looking to benefit from the performance advantage of new grips—it also requires zero drying time, meaning you can go from gripping clubs to hitting shots instantly.

To see how it works, check out the video from Golf Pride below.

Golf Pride Concept Helix grip: More details

Golf Pride’s new Concept Helix grip system uses a friction and torque-based installation method that ensures the grips are secure and are installed using a proprietary ‘horn’ device that is included with every order.

“Golf Pride stands at the forefront of innovation in grips, and Concept Helix builds on that legacy as the first-ever twist-on grip technology system. This is the first major new advanced concept to come out of the lab at our new Global Innovation Center in Pinehurst and innovates the installation process, requiring no tape, no solvent, and no drying time. Getting fresh grips on your clubs will be more seamless than ever.”
Greg Cavill – Global Project Engineer / Golf Pride

The other interesting note is that without the need for solvents or tape, the new Concept Helix grips and more environmentally friendly.

“We continue to explore new technologies that benefit golfers, both on and off the course. Concept Helix, in this regard, is this next step in the exploration of best practices for grip installation.”- Brandon Sowell, global director of sales and marketing for Golf Pride
