    2018 UST Mamiya PROFORCE V2

    Been waiting to hear/see more on this one. The return of a LEGENDARY shaft name/line.

    From UST Mamiya:

    PROFORCE V2 - FOR THE PLAYER SEEKING A MEDIUM BALL FLIGHT, INCREASED BALL SPEED AND SUPERIOR CONTROL.

    LONG PARALLEL BUTT DESIGN - Provides greater control in the hands of the golfer for both aggressive and smooth tempo golfers.

    STIFF TIP TECHNOLOGY - Stiffer tip provides golfers more spin control at impact.

    RECOIL TECHNOLOGY - Provides optimal spring effect in the walls of the shaft and more efficient energy transfer to the ball for increased velocity and greater distance.

    Specifications:

    Love it. This is one of the first shafts I remember checking out. My that was a long time ago and I was even more naive than I am now. Glad they are bringing it back!

    That looks really really good! Good grief those are some low torque numbers in the stouter shafts too. I may have to get one of these...

    Based on the teaser about recoil I would think that they tweaked the hoop strength allowing for better feel and energy transfer.... just a guess though. I'm pumped to hit these.
