UST-Mamiya offers 4 Lines of Graphite Golf Shafts:

AXIV Core Series:

This line integrates their AXIVCore technology which is a proprietary 4-axis weave technology that improves distance and accuracy. How? Most graphite shafts use 3 directional layers of graphite. One is longitudinal or runs the length of the shaft for the stiffness. Two layers go at opposite 45 degree angles to control and balance the shafts resistance to torque. The AXIVCore adds a 4th layer that is laid 90 to the longitudinal layers to control the compression of the shaft and improve hoop strength. This is what helps to provide pin point accuracy. The AXIVCore shafts are available in different models.

AXIV Core Blue:

This series is designed for the majority of weekend warriors creating a higher launch angle with its active tip section for longer carry distances. We are offering the wood shaft in the lighter 50 and 60 gram ranges in a wide array of flexes from slow swingers to those with high speeds. There is also an 85g hybrid shaft in this line.

AXIV Core Black:

This series is for the player seeking a high initial launch plus low spin. It is also counterbalanced to help increase swing speed and available in multiple weights for true custom golf clubs fitting.

AXIV Core Tour Green:

This is a brand new series is for the player seeking a lower initial launch with low spin. The balance point is shifted toward the tip for added stability and increase head feel. We are offering this shaft in the popular 60 and 70 gram ranges and these are quite possibly designed more for the stronger-than-average golfers.

ProForce Series:

The flagship Proforce brand is a proven winner on the PGA Tour and remains one of the most successful shaft brands in golf. When the first, eye-catching Proforce Series shaft burst on to the scene, winning the 1999 Masters, its revolutionary Proforce Tip Technology shook up the golf industry. The second generation, Proforce V2, continues to be a go-to shaft on the professional tours and in the marketplace today. The Proforce V2 shaft series masterfully balances torque, weight, spin and launch angle to create the most extraordinary power-to-torque ratios in golf. The latest in the Proforce Series, the all-new Proforce AXIVCore shaft, is the most stable, most powerful golf shaft UST Mamiya has ever designed. The Proforce AXIVCore features 4-axis material for stability and control and is counter-balanced to make the club easier to swing for increased ball speed. Three available models will help you fine-tune your launch.

Proforce V2 Shafts:

The firm tip section on the V2 line produces a very stable, consistent golf shaft with a medium trajectory. Plus the low torque is combined to harmonize with todays larger club heads. We offer the wood shafts in the 65 and 75 gram ranges to work not only in drivers, but fairways too.

The Golf Tournament at Abu Dhabi saw the much awaited return of Tiger Woods- the king of golf. It was rather a rare scene to see Woods with wealthier Sheikhs around. At least that is what the tournament at the prestigious Golf Club of Abu Dhabi demanded. Tiger was seen participating in a pre-tournament dance performance. It can be well said that the Golf king is trying hard to earn what he once conquered. Woods is trying his level best to attain patience that works like miracle for the game, which demands focus and desire to top the charts.

Tiger Woods looks afresh; he reveals a dignified and calm look.  The golfer feels that it works better when he tries to concentrate. As it is the game is all about how well you are able to focus and how great is your swing.  It is his way of joining the fragments of the past. Once again the champion golfer shows his mettle at the plush green course. Wood’s wonder trick seems quite simple; just to focus, focus and focus on what he loves doing- his famous swings.

Tiger Woods who started off as the king of golf is all set for stepping his foot for a winning spree. Losing the game is the least thought to have occupied his winning mind. Those who have managed to enjoy a victory against Woods at the Abu Dhabi, think that this would act like a milestone for their career. The PGA tour in August showed Woods hardly in a mood to play the game. Things have bettered as Tiger started participating at the PGA tours and soon was able to gain confidence post break.

Personally Woods feels that he needs to brush up his skills. There are still several tournaments on the go. Tiger Woods have had difficulties in his personal life, but now he earnestly wants to comeback like the Tiger of earlier days.

Lamkin’s state-of-the-art technology sets the bar in the grip market. Since 1925, Lamkin has left an enduring footprint on golf-grip innovation.

In 2010, Lamkin Grips introduced the revolutionary 3GEN technology to its grip line, a huge material advancement. This synthetic rubber compound not only dampens vibration, it stays tacky in all playing conditions. Golf Digest gave both the N-DUR 3GEN grip and the Performance Plus 3GEN grip Hot List gold ratings. In 2011, Lamkin is offering now patent-pending 3GEN material in more grips, including Lamkins brand new R.E.L. grip (named after Robert E. Lamkin) and our E.B.L. putter series (named after Elver B. Lamkin.)

3GEN Material:

Lamkin Grip’s new proprietary 3GEN material – it’s a very unique synthetic rubber compound that’s both soft and tacky-provides unmatched “single-strike” vibration-dampening properties that protects a golfer’s hands and arm joints from jarring shockwaves. Used in other applications and industries, 3GEN mutes virtually all vibration and stinging of the hands at impact, providing an incredibly soft feel. The material maintains a high level of tackiness and can be easily wiped for a fresh feel and excellent traction. And unlike competitors’ soft polyurethane grips, 3GEN is a form of synthetic rubber that has very low torque – similar to that of a traditional rubber grip-and will not feel as if it’s sliding around the golf shafts at impact. That firmness lasts throughout the life of the grip. 3GEN also features a vastly improved resistance to environmental aging and weathering factors. The material will not absorb any moisture and its tackiness is activated by toweling off the grip or using a light abrasive brush. It continually performs better if it’s cleaned regularly.

Lamkin Golf Grips:

N-DUR:

The revolutionary 3GEN proprietary synthetic rubber compound is paired with N-DURs traction-enhancing dual surface design to create the most advanced grip on the market today. The hexagon-patterned back panel promotes light tension and protects hands from twisting at impact while the front comfort panel reduces fatigue and promotes an ideal grip position to hit the ball longer with increased accuracy.

Performance Plus with 3GEN:

The latest revolution in golf components is here. 3GEN maximizes hand traction for a natural grip position. An enlarged grip profile works with 3GEN to improve overall comfort and stability. End result: Hands marry together in a unified grip and produce stronger swings with a higher swing speed, more accuracy and less hand tension.

Crossline:

Lamkins #1 selling golf grips. The pattern is recognizable. The performance is unmistakable. Crosslines proprietary rubber compound adds tack and durability while the distinctive pattern increases handtraction and reduces torque for the ultimateperformance grip.

One of the fastest growing segments in the mobile app market is golf mobile apps, especially golf mobile apps for the iPhone.  In fact, iTunes now has hundreds of golf mobile apps available, but there is a wide disparity between the few good and useful iPhone golf mobile apps and the less than stellar golf apps for the iPhone.

To find golf mobile apps for the iPhone, simply go to iTunes or the Apple app store and look under the “Sports” category.  You can also do a search query under “golf.”  There, you will find hundreds of free and paid golf mobile apps to help you with your golf game under such categories as:

1. Golf GPS Rangefinder

2. Tee to Green Golf Tips

3. Golf Practice Drills

4. Rules of Golf

5. Golf Scorecards

6. Golf Course Finder

7. Golf News

Like any app, when selecting a golf mobile app for the iPhone, be sure to read through the details of the app and look at the screen shots.  Also read the reviews and try to distinguish between authentic reviews and “fake” reviews by the app manufacturer (these are pretty easy to figure out).  When looking at the golf mobile app reviews, pay close attention to reviews that mention ease of use, ease of navigation, quality of visuals, quality of instruction, etc.

Usually you want to go with an iPhone golf app that provides the best balance among usefulness, ease of use and price.  For example, there are some good golf apps for the iPhone that provide solid video instruction that can be useful away from the course, but is not very practical on the course.  Complement that iPhone golf app with golf tips and practice drills you can actually use on the course.  Then, with a few, inexpensive apps, you have your instructional needs covered, no matter where you are!

Something else to keep in mind is to distinguish between golf mobile apps that are “native” vs. those that need access to your provider and/or Wi-Fi.  Once downloaded to your phone, you can use native apps whenever you like and get the information you need with no carrier or Wi-Fi access.  Many of the GPS apps can be frustrating because they often require carrier/Wi-Fi access and if your coverage is not good, the app does not work well.

So, check out all the golf mobile apps for iPhone and get ready for a fantastic
