    UST Mamiya Helium Prototype Shafts

    THE HELIUM PROTOTYPE SHAFT IS DESIGNED WITH PREMIUM MATERIALS FOR ALL GOLFERS LOOKING FOR A LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURE WITH EXTREME STABILITY.

    LOW RESIN CARBON FIBER
    We are able to reduce additional weight by using 25% less resin. Lowering the weight but also adding stiffness for stability.

    COUNTERBALANCED DESIGN
    The shaft is counterbalanced to work well with today's heavier driver heads.

    IMPROVED STIFFNESS PROFILE
    We are able to increase stiffness without sacrificing feel for all swingers. In addition to using lower resin carbon fiber material, we added more carbon fiber in key areas for additional stability and improved shot dispersion.

    25% is a lot of weight to cut, how light are these?

    edit, its 25% less resin, not less weight, but still, they must be very light!

    25% is a lot of weight to lose, but that blue paint sure would like nice with my blue F7.

    Red flagged me too. "Feel" for me is just as much in the downswing as it is at contact and I need enough weight to allow for me to maintain control. Interested to see the weight categories and feedback on these.
    One thing we do know....They make some amazing shafts.

    I wouldn't say its a red flag for me at all, I don't really know what is best for my game, I just bought a 65g shaft to try going heavier, I wouldn't mind comparing with a lighter shaft to see if I can "feel" the difference or which one will help me more with accuracy and/or distance

    from the website, it looks like high 40s or high 50s depending on which one you pick, its not that far out of the norm, but it sure is light. I will eb looking forward to the reviews for sure

    It certainly would be fun to try out to see if I could put a move on the ball with it... although sometimes I'm a maniac

    Is this the same shaft as my THP Proto that I gamed last year? Did they make changes to it? One of the best driver shafts I've ever gamed.
